My “Gut Feel” and preview:
“A strong woman understands that the gifts such as logic, decisiveness, and strength are just as feminine as intuition and emotional connection. She values and uses all of her gifts.” —Nancy Rathburn
Dangle is all about women empowerment!!! Dangle is a story of a Father who against all odds ensures her daugthers explores highest potential in the field of wrestling. With Dangal’s story line there is a great potential to showcase an emotionally charged dramatic movie, which I believe Nitesh Tiwari able to deliver it convincingly. With Dangal, everything seems to be in place. An awesome story, backed by brilliant director Nitesh Tiwari and production team. Most importantly, with Aamir Khan around the scale has gone very high as Mr. perfectionist done a great job in justifying the real life character of Mahavir Singh Phogat. Dangle is apt for both single screens and multiplex which would increase the chances of box office success and with year end euphoria in place, first week would set up a tone for the box office fate of Dangal.
With expectations of dramatic, engaging story and decent performances I am giving “Dangal” 3.5 out of 5 stars, three days before the release.
