5 Major Lessons to Take Home from the Dangal Duo

via Newsx

2016 has witnessed women centric cinema on a dynamic scale. The latest release, Dangal brings into limelight, the fierceness of femininity in the most explicit way. The movie is a biopic of Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari, the sister duo who won medals for wrestling at the Commonwealth Games. Theirs is an inspiring story that was narrated beautifully in Dangal.  They bloomed into world-class wrestlers under the mentorship of their father, former wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat who had to give up wrestling due to financial commitments. He lived his love for wrestling through the success of his daughters. The movie won hearts of the audience and of the critics and left us contemplating on the way we see women in the world. The movie is emotion and action packed and also gives us some enlightenment along with some entertaining cinema. Here are the major life lessons that we should totally take home from the Dangal Duo:

1. Success is determined by strength, not gender

Via Alchetron

The movie made it obvious that winning needs strength and determination, in wrestling and in life. Success doesn’t see whether you’re a man or a woman. It just sees whether you’ve done enough to win it. Mahavir Singh Phogat rightly realized that his daughters have the potential to be just as good (or even better) than a professional male wrestler. The magnitude of strength that the Dangal sisters had just couldn’t let success be that farfetched.

2. Never let taboos take over

Via The Better India

The popular notion of “women can’t’ was well defeated by the movie of Dangal. Whether it was to break the ‘salwar kameez’ bogus or whether it was about beating up boys, Geeta and Babita always stood for what was actually right and not for what was thought to be right. And with the immense support and moral outlook of their father, taboos were better broken.

3. Skills need sharpening

The movie depicted all the hard work that has gone into the making of these world class wrestlers. While Geeta and Babita had it in them, they never underestimated the importance of training. Talent and skills need polishing and nothing explains it better than the sport of wrestling that the Dangal sisters lived in.

4. Fathers know the best

If your dad is your life coach, you’re sure to win. Geeta’s advanced NSA training couldn’t get her the victory that her father’s predominant path got her. We identify with the movie for the ‘only human’ instincts it depicts. It shows how children often grow up discouraging the obsolete thoughts of their parents and later go on to realize how true they were.

5. “Gold toh Gold hota hai”: The medal shines bright of feminine necks too

Via India for Sports

Dangal establishes gender equality in its purest form. The gold medal shines equally bright when won by such inspiring women. The simply strong dialogue “gold toh gold hota hai” is true to every word. The amount of pride that a woman brings through her victory is no less than a man’s.
