Aamir Khan’s Dangal teaches us why –
- Female Discriminations is a passé – Aamir Khan’s Dangal will be known as one of the important movie on Female Discrimination. India where most of the population live in rural areas, it’s very difficult for girls to choose a profession dominated by male. Females are no less than man and given opportunity can excel in any field. The film shows the true rural mentality where Mahavir Singh Phogat looks for a boy for fulfilling his wrestling dreams. But when he sees his daughters beating the local boys, he realise that given an opportunity they can also fulfil his dreams.
- For success, there is no alternative of Strict Routine, Regular Practice and dedication – Being a father it’s difficult to be strict with your children especially when you are personally coaching them. Mahavir Singh Phogat, coaching his daughters personally, understands the importance of Strict Routine and Regular Practice for success. He pushes his daughter for the same and ensures that being their father he should not have any mercy on them.
- With intermediary success, your should not forget your ultimate goal – Geeta Phogat getting in to National Sports Academy after winning the National Championships gets carried away with the new world she found there and deviated herself from her ultimate goal. This gets reflected with her multiple defeats at international levels.
- Never compete with your Coach who has worked hard for you and respect him always for what he is – Geeta Phogat getting international training at National Sports Academy claim his father’s training as obsolete and non-effective. She also challenges her father for a fight and defeats him. But ultimately it’s his father who helped her coming out of the continuous international defeat and wins a gold medal at Commonwealth Games.
- The right coach is who understand your weakness and strength as well and suggest strategy as per the opponent’s game. Who pushes you for the gold and not tell you to win at least bronze.
