Dangal (2016)

Director: Nitesh Tiwari. Cast: Aamir Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh. 161 min. Unrated. India. Sports/Drama.

I can't specifically point out why I loved this Disney-produced Indian movie, based on the true story of a professional wrestler who trained her daughters to fulfill his own dreams of winning gold for India - because the endearing pull of a sports movie, the tear-jerking father-daughter relationship, even the mandatory final slow-motion shot ... they're all here. But you'll still find yourself engaged and rooting for the heroes. The film would've benefited from summarizing the final matches to a shorter length, but then again, Indian movies are rarely applauded for brevity. Highly recommended for a family setting.
