One of the best sports drama from Bollywood.
6 July 2016 | by Rohan JaiswalSee all my reviews

The movie is one of the best sports drama ever produced in Bollywood. Can't see why some people are rating it so low, perhaps they don't know much about films. Salman's performance was outstanding and so was Anushka's. The movie is based on the life of a wrestler and how the biggest opponent of any wrestler is he himself. The movie tried to show the thin line between confidence and arrogance and how this thin line, if crossed, can make a huge difference in anyone's life. The dialogues in this movie are so appropriate and most of the people, whether a wrestler or a clerk, would be able to relate to it. The movie is an inspiration to the aspiring wrestlers and other athletes. The movie gives a strong message about how one should stick to his roots to achieve success in his life. Todays generation is filled with wannabes, what they don't realize is you can't beat someone in their own game i.e if you copy someone, you cannot get ahead of them. The only drawback in this movie was that its a little fast-paced. Otherwise a very nice. The action was realistic and very well choreographed, sound effects was one of the best in Indian cinema. I would say this movie, as a sports drama,was better than Rocky.
