Dangal Movie Review By Times Of India – 4.5/5

“What works wonderfully here is the writing. Director Nitesh Tiwari, along with Piyush Gupta, Shreyas Jain and Nikhil Mehrotra should be complimented for their tongue-in-cheek quality, peppered with humour and several poignant father-daughter emotions all through. Of course, a little bit is lost in translation because of the Haryanvi twang. But, messages on our obsession with the male child (prevalent since the dark ages), myopic stand on bringing up our daughters and the administration’s pathetic disposition towards sports, are loud and clear. ”

Dangal Movie Review By Scroll.in

“Every age produces the cinema it deserves, and with its insistence on absolute obedience to an authoritarian figure, Dangal is inadvertently a reflection of our times. Daddy truly does know best, and Dangal harbours no doubt whatsoever that his daughters are wise not to question him.”

Dangal Movie Review By Indian Express – 3/5

“But this is clearly Aamir’s film. It wouldn’t have been made if he hadn’t green-lit it, and he brings to it the sincerity of purpose which makes it not just a starry vehicle, but a film which is about something, which has meaning, with a message which doesn’t overwhelm the telling.”

Dangal Movie Review By Hindustan Times – 4/5

“This could be Aamir Khan’s his best performance till date. Yes, even better than Lagaan. A man making his daughters chase his own dream. He cries, frowns, becomes unreasonably angry, looks old and tired, but is definitely one of us. When he shakes his head in helplessness, you see a father in him. When he gets into a brawl in front of everybody, he is the brother you always banked upon. When he wants to see you win, you know you have to perform. It’s not just his pride, it’s yours as well.”

Dangal Movie Review By Filmfare – 5/5

“Dangal has everything that you’d ask from the perfect Hindi film. Its funny, dramatic, dark, serious, emotional all rolled into one seamless cinematic gem. It is the movie of the year. A film that deserves a standing ovation. A story so good that it will make you feel like a proud Indian. This is a truly special film. ”

Dangal Movie Review By Taran Adarsh – 4.5/5

“On the whole, DANGAL is a masterpiece. A terrific film that stays in your heart and remains etched in your memory much after the screening has concluded. A brilliant film that restores your faith in Hindi cinema. Actually, it won’t be erroneous to state that DANGAL is the finest film to come out of the Hindi film industry in a long, long time and mark my words, it will be remembered as a classic in times to come. It blends drama, emotions, sportsmanship and patriotism extraordinarily… the icing on the cake being Aamir Khan’s towering act. This rich-in-merits film has a major advantage too — the holidays ahead [Christmas and New Year] — which will ensure a glorious run at the ticket counters. A must, must watch!”

Dangal Movie Review By NDTV – 4/5

“But as time elapses and Geeta and Babita see in their father’s medal fixation an opportunity to escape the plight of the other girls in their sleepy Haryana hamlet – Balali, Bhiwani district – who are pushed into dead-end domesticity as soon as they step into their teens. The main conflict point in the film – rooted father who believes in traditional coaching methods versus daughter who flies the coop to be exposed to the more modern ways of the national sports academy – are delineated with remarkable poise and efficacy.”
