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 »

Wrestle With Your Emotions...
1 November 2020 | by XstalSee all my reviews

Let this incredibly sincere biopic wrestle with your emotions, let it grab you around the waist and smash you through a glass ceiling like no other, let it hold you in its arms and flip you around until your head is spinning. A truly inspirational story of a family, of Geeta Phogat and her sister Babita Kumari, of their father Mahavir Singh Phogat, of the incredible journey, adventure and experience they undertake in order to achieve something spectacular and profound. With breathtaking performances all round, this is one film that will leave you in awe of the incredible things people can achieve in the most challenging of circumstances - an absolutely astonishing piece of film making.
