Aamir Khan is called the Mr. Perfectionist and if one has any doubt, all such doubts will be cleared after watching the trailer of his upcoming wrestling drama 'Dangal', which was released just a while ago.
This time Aamir transformed himself into a wrestler from Haryana. Based on the life story of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, Dangal is an inspirational story of how a Haryana wrestler trained his daughters in a men dominated sport, wrestling, in the quest to win a Gold medal for his country.
To play the role of Mahavir Phogat, Aamir had to gain weight and look believable as father of two grownups, and he has predictably gone into the skin of the character with unbelievable transformation. He plays a man who prays for a son so that he can fulfill his dream of winning a Gold medal for India. As wrestling is a man's sport, he doesn't think of fielding his daughters in the wrestling arena until the two young girls, Geeta and Babita, makes him realize the girl power by beating their neighbors, two boys.
While 'Sultan' belonged completely to Salman Khan, 'Dangal' belongs to the actors who play Aamir's daughters. One can see their commitment and the intensity in their eyes when they get inside the arena. The dream of their father is clearly visible in their domineering eyes. This is the real film talking about girl empowerment.
The last shot of the trailer certainly gives goosebumps when a beefed up young Aamir Khan looks flexing his muscles before entering the wrestling arena to land a powerful blow on his opponent.
The trailer has hinted that Aamir is once again back to rewrite the box office records. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal will release in theaters on 23rd December, 2016.
