Dangal, Dangal all the way, no one comes Aamir Khan’s way! Though the start of this news piece may seem a little poetic, the facts are as true as it can get. Aamir’s last Bollywood release Dangal seems unstoppable at the Box Office at the domestic market. On Monday, the film earned Rs 1.37 crore, bringing the grand total to Rs 371.48 cr.
If these numbers weren’t overwhelming, Dangal is said to have earned Rs 100 crore in Mumbai circuit itself, a fact tweeted by trade analyst Taran Adarsh. With such number, the movie is expected to earn more than Rs 375 crore by the end of this week. In all probability, Dangal may earn more than Rs 380 crore in its lifetime.
The success of Dangal is proof that the movies having rich content and a social message still appeases the masses. The film had lessons of women empowerment perfectly imbibed to it, which is why it won the hearts of all. It is based on an incredible true story of Mahavir Singh Phogat, who fought against all odds to make his daughters, Geeta and Babita, a world class wrestlers.
Though the film was applauded by many, there were few who disagreed with it. Critics of the film preached that it didn’t teach women empowerment because Mahavir forced his daughters to a sport they didn’t like.
