Dangal Movie Review – Critics
INDIAN EXPRESS: Rating- Three stars
Dangal has real meaning but its message doesn’t overwhelm. Aamir Khan knows exactly when to ratchet it up and when to let go. The first-timers shine and fight for real. Sakshi Tanwar is familiar enough and yet new enough.
NDTV: Rating- Four stars
Dangal is the kind of sports film that usually eludes Bollywood. It knows the rules inside and out and meticulously plays by them without ever succumbing to dreary predictability. Dangal is an outright winner – a film that will pin you down and keep you in its grip all the way through.
HINDUSTAN TIMES: Rating- Four stars
This could be Aamir’s best performance till date. Yes, even better than Lagaan. A man making his daughters chase his dream. He cries, frowns, gets angry, looks old and tired, but is definitely one of us.
BOLLYWOOD LIFE: Rating –Four and a half stars
Dangal is the film of the year for me. It is brave, gritty, honest and has a performance of a lifetime by Aamir. Watch it because I can’t think of a better film that came out this year which got your attention with such intensity. And yes, I loved Sultan as well. But Dangal sort of won my heart over.
FILMIBEAT: Rating- Four stars
Aamir Khan’s latest outing has its heart at the right place coupled with stellar performances and engrossing narrative. Book your tickets quickly before the Phogat sisters say ‘Ab Dangal shuru’ or else you will miss all the action and one of the best films of 2016!
DECCAN CHRONICLE: Rating- Five stars
Dangal is the best feast on this Christmas and one can’t deny that the film is the best one of 2016. The film is recommended not only to Aamir Khan’s fans but also to the family audience who were awaiting a family drama that is high on emotions.
