Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, there is a wrestling match between Aamir Khan and Vivan Bhatena in the office. When Vivan gets defeated, then he says to Aamir Khan that "you are good because you have defeated a state level champion". To that Aamir Khan replies that "dont feel bad as you are been defeated by a national level champion". Its quite surprising that how come a state level player cannot identify a national level player especially when both belong to Haryana as apparent by their accent. See more »

Music: 9/10 Amazing, Very touching background. Greatly Synced Title track will give you goosebumps

Direction: 9/10 Nitesh Tiwari achieved what he wanted, Got a new name, One of the best directors of Bollywood.

Acting: Aamir Khan: 10/10 This time as a father, He will amaze you in every scene. His acting skills are deeply great. Whenever I watch Aamir's movies, I feel his acting. He loves acting and entertaining the world since He came to the Film Industry.

Fatima Sana Shaikh: 9/10 Sometimes I still watch Chachi 420, because I love Kamal Hassan. And Fatima Sana Shaikh was the little girl in Chachi 420. Seriously I have seen her after Chachi 420. And after Dangal she will go so far.

Aamir Khan and the two lead actress are the best cast roles in a long time, but overall cast done an amazing job.

Dangal is humorous and Inspirational Journey.
