A middle-aged, flabby Mahavir Singh Phogat (Aamir Khan) challenge his senior daughter Geeta Phogat (Fatima Sana Shaikh) to a wrestle competition after she calls his “technique” out-of-date. She lives in the “National Sports Academy (NSA)“ in Patiala, swear by her national level coach’s preparation, not her father’s time tested akhaada lessons. Geeta defeats dad Mahavir in the face off, telling him “kuch toh farak hove in his method, that of her coach. As a panting Mahavir gather the rest of his face, we see a father’s grief at seeing his daughter modify.
Dangal is the real based story which is the story of Mahavir Singh Phogat from Balali in Haryana. The wrestler is inspired by the wish to see his son “win gold” for the nation. But as fate would have it, he has four kids but all daughters. When his young daughters Babita (Suhani Bhatnagar) and Geeta (Zaira Wasim) beat up the neighbour’s sons for calling them name, Mahavir sees there’s brawl in them.
“Gold toh gold howey hai; chhoraa laave ya chhorei.” A gold is a gold; whether a son bring it or a daughter.
Thus begin the gold mission of this father. But he has to struggle the scheme, the civilization and its centuries-old prejudice before his daughters can struggle. The best a girl could get ready for is “chakki-chauka-jhaaru-poch”‘, not ‘kushti‘. So much so that Geeta and Babita start wrestling with boys because women’s wrestle isn’t a sport. Not, until his girls go on to come first.
