When it comes to Bollywood, it's either about the Khans or the khandaans! And more often than not, the Khans take centerstage. CRB Tech reviews.

Dangal story is much more than Aamir's stardom



Yes definitely!

Such is the might of the sacred trinity- Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir- that whenever a movie featuring either of these three is declared, it's secure to think that it'll be a roaring achievements. '100 crore', '200 crore', '300 crore'... You name it, they've done it!

But how often is it that you see a Khan smash hit and come out talk about the tale instead?

For example, Salman Khan's last three produces, Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015), Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015) & Sultan (2016), have all been more Bhai bonanzas than actual films. He even performed the headline part even though the story was not just about him! As for Shah Rukh Khan, after Fan (2016) where he performed his own 'fan', in one of Bollywood's most narcissistic efforts, not much remains to be said. 

Dangal

Dangal story is much more than Aamir's stardom



Naturally then, when information split out about Aamir Khan's Dangal, depending on the real-life tale of the Phogat siblings with Aamir playing their father-cum-mentor, I was frightened. What if the movie trailer for this one would the listeners shouting "Phogat! Phogat!" just like they were in the movie trailer of Sultan?

And in a relaxing modify, Aamir isn't trying difficult, not even once, to outperform ladies. On the other hand, the movie trailer of Dangal is as much about Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra, ladies playing Geeta and Babita Phogat as it is about Aamir's Mahavir Phogat. 

Although Aamir not being Aamir in films isn't new. Perfectionist or not but the man certainly isn't useless. His last launch, PK (2014), though focused on him, clearly was not a display of his performing expertise. Neither were Dhoom 3 (2013), Talaash (2012), 3 Idiots (2009) or Taare Zameen Par (2007). 

And even when he did Ghajini (2008), a movie so obviously about his part, it was known as after the villain's character! 

Bollywood isn't really known for generating excellent programs. Our greatest blockbusters are all about big celebrities and big-ticket places. In such circumstances, it's heartening to see an important celebrity, who also happens to be a Khan, not trying to grab the display. Thus our CRB Tech reviews over here has been completed.
