Film Series: Dangal

2016. India. Dir: Nitesh Tiwari. With Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh. 161 min.

A former wrestler challenges the stigmas of his village by training his daughters into world-class brawlers. After all, “a gold medal is a gold medal, whether it’s a boy or a girl.” Deftly combining the sentimentality of Bollywood and the realism of parallel cinema, this sports biopic has won the hearts of millions across the world.

Film Series: Sholay

1975. India. Dir: Ramesh Sippy. With Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra. 204 min.


A retired police chief enlists the help of two bandits to defeat a murderous crime lord, unleashing a campy current of action, melodrama, and – of course – musical numbers. At first considered a flop, Sholay has gained so much of a following that it may now be the highest grossing Hindi-language film of all time.
