I watched this movie last week in a cinema in Beijing when I was back in china. Personally, I’m not that into India movies. Firstly, there are too many singing and dancing in the movies, this makes it difficult for the audience to concentrate on the plots. Secondly, I cannot accept the exaggerated performances of India actors. But I have to watch this movie, since it is acted by my favorable Indian film star Aamir Khan, as long as he is playing, it is definitely a good movie.
This movie is based on a true story about Mahavir Phogat who was the national wrestling champion of India. However, he had to give up wrestling for living. He hoped one day, his sons will realize his dream of winning a gold medal at worldwide matches. But destiny has played a trick on him by letting him has four daughters. By chance, he began to teach his daughters wrestling, and tried to cultivate them to be world-class wrestlers. Lots of funny things happened during the process, but also brought in a series of events about the public opinion, religion and other social topic. In spite of great difficulties, eventually his daughters had entered into wrestling match in the Commonwealth Game and won the championship.
When playing this film, Aamir Khan needed to show different figures of three different ages. As film actor and producer, Aamir Khan had to display the changes of the role in 30 years, including his 19, 29 and 55 years old.
Aamir khan first completed scene when the role was 19 years old; Then gained 28 kg weight in a short time to show the fat body of his 55-year-old. At that time, Aamir khan had weighted 97 kg, he was a typical big-bellied middle-aged man.
Finally, in order to fit the image of a 29-year-old wrestler at the golden age of his career, Aamir Khan spent five months, sweating in the gym, not only lost 25 kg proud flesh, but also more learned wrestling skills, and built the devil figure with eight pieces of abdominal muscle.
All the actors in this film are trained professional of wrestling for half a year, just in order to give the audience a real visual effect. In Bollywood, a film kingdom of high output, this movie spent so much thoughts, reduced a lot of musical effects, just to bring more joy and touching to the audience. From this aspect alone, this is a really excellent movie.
In the end of the movie, when the eldest daughter won the Olympic champion, on that moment, all the people in the cinema including me began to applause. Everyone feel as if we were the girl’s father, as if we experienced all the pains she had experienced, faced all the difficulties she had faced with her.

In a word, it is not exaggerate to say that this movie is worth watching for more than one time, for I will still be touched when I watch it for the second time.
