I am not promoting Dangal and not have any intention to encourage you to watch Dangal either. That’s your choice. I have seen Dangal and would like to share some behavioral aspects which I observed. Here I am going to voice it loud. Sit back, relax and enjoy reading this article.

The whole movie is a narration and a story telling which brings audience attention instantly. We as people tend to enjoy more by listening. Probably, out of all senses our sense to hear the voices has an amazing ability. Almost 90% of the communication happens because you are able to hear or listen. Hearing is an awesome tool to developpersonality as well.
The movie Dangal is a story of ego sharing and is a perfect example of Ego Switching from one character to other. Learn Transaction Analysis and then watch this movie. You are going to see altogether a new version of Dangal then.
The summary of Dangal goes like this. Amir Khan as Mahavir Singh Phogat is an India wrestler and a National player. To take care of his family, he left wrestling and started working as a government servant. A gold medal for India in world wrestling was his dream. His ambition of gold medal which he assumed that a boy only can bring, he ended up having four daughters. He was shattered until the day; he found out that his daughters Geeta and Babita are strong enough to knock down two boys from his neighbor. Amir realized that his girls are no less than boys and decided to train his daughters the art of wrestling. Movie takes a turn when his elder daughter became the national champion and joined National Sports Academy. Geeta’s lost focus. As a result, she lost her first world wrestling event. In between a beautiful ego clash drama is filmed between Amir Khan and his elder daughter Geeta. Babita made Geeta understand the roots. Geeta then managed to bring Gold medal for India in Common wealth Games year 2010 in 55 Kg women wrestling group.
Mahavir Singh Phogat and Geeta:
An interesting human ego state study when both father and daughter went into an argument and fight. The change of coach and his daughter’s easy acceptance to it, was troubling him from inside. This is a perfect example of belongingness.
Mahavir Singh Phogat and His Wife:
A submissive nature bringing trust in relation where social obligations are challenged. Dangal is a story of Social obligations and how it was challenged. The courage to stand against social beliefs comes from the trust two people develop in due course of time.
Geeta and Babita:
The two sisters grown under same parenthood but had their own prospective to see the world outside. This is how we all develop our own personality and identity.
The Social Surrounding:
We all grow up in a social environment and we follow the rules. We are social animals. When you challenge certain rules it is not always necessary to be loud. Action speaks better than the words. You do it, you achieve it and then the society accepts you. You will face criticism and how you tackle the scenario.
Dangal is not a movie. It is a Dangal within us. Dangal is all about never ending fight.
By the way, I am still looking for an answer and do let me know if you have the one, “What happen to the coach after common wealth games. Is he still in NSA (National Sports Academy)”.
