Indian wrestling the Phogats Dangal his latest film features a lesser-known star cast and is in line with themes we have come to associate Aamir Khanwith in recent years Related News This week’s big release Dangal revolves around female wrestling but its commercial prospects hinge entirely on its male star Aamir Khan’s broad – maybe not so broad after all what with all the extra beef on the bone gone – shoulders Aamir’s reputation as ruthless media strategist is an open secret Dangal movie review Whether an over-bloated foil in a film (CC: Taare Zameen Par and Dhobi Ghat) or an item song eye-candy (Delhi Belly) he overshadows everyone in media outreach Even in a Raju Hirani film Aamir Khan is Raju Hirani An Aamir film may not always belong to Aamir but is still pitched as an Aamir Khan vehicle As anyone even remotely familiar with Hindi cinema would know contrary to other stars who are on media radar 24/7 Aamir gets active on the limelight circuit barely weeks before the crucial release and withdraws in short order once he has ensured the film’s dash to the 300 crore-dom It is this absence between the films that feeds and sustains the audience’s interest in Aamir A still from Aamir Khan-starrer Taare Zameen Par Of the three Khans including Shah Rukh and Salman Khan who have ruled Bollywood for more than two decades Aamir is physically unremarkable (though he retains his youthful boyishness) and the least star-like When Salman walks into a room he once remarked heads turn “I lack that star quality” he admitted sounding genuinely self-deprecatory than ironical It is why you’ll always find a throng of SRK-stalkers outside Mannat the superstar’s palatial mansion in suburban Mumbai and fans who stand for hours in the heat outside Galaxy Apartment to get a glimpse of Salman Khan but with Aamir you’ll struggle to even locate his home on a fanzine map – forget mobbing his building Why is it like this when in fact the Khan triumvirate are bona fide A-listers in their own right The truth is the Khans occupy different slots in the audience’s mind space They represent different aspects of the Indian desire machine What people want in SRK and Salman is different from what they expect from Aamir SRK exists to fulfil their romantic fantasies Salman has a Peter Pan appeal –a bad boy with golden heart a misunderstood man-child whose transgressions are eventually forgotten and forgiven by a motherly India Also read |Aamir Khan’s Dangal is the best sports biopic we have seen sofar Aamir on the other hand speaks to our minds If SRK has made a career out of playing SRK Aamir has made a career out of playing non-Aamir Khan Over the years he has distanced himself from the other Khans and built a legacy as a discerning man’s superstar He’s an every-man not a star What sets him further apart from other stars is that when you watch a film starring him you come back intrigued not of his performance or starry aura but of the singular power of the story (Though as we go into print critics are raving about his performance calling it significant and extraordinary) With Aamir you get a feeling that every Bollywood film would be slightly tolerable if he was in it and it may be so not because of his acting or performance but due to his overall involvement Aamir Khan and his friends and noted actors Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan Many are expecting the eagerly-awaited Dangal to be a monster hit It is Aamir’s return to the screen after a gap of two years His last PK was a controversial blockbuster but left the critics wanting for more Based on the first family of Indian wrestling the Phogats Dangal his latest film features a lesser-known star cast and is in line with themes we have come to associate Aamir with in recent years Relevant storylines edgier ideas fresh cast and lesser-known directors The star reveals a talent for plucking stories that are either topical or have the capacity to become a conversation-starter Ever since the film’s trailer was released comparisons with Salman Khan’s Sultan became inevitable Both films are about wrestling set in a Haryanvi milieu But being an Aamir Khan film Dangal obviously looks credibly well-researched and more realistic than the masala Sultan Aamir who can work with any director he desires has a tendency to hire filmmakers no one has heard of Dangal is directed by Nitesh Tiwari an award winning but little-known filmmaker whose previous credits read such smaller films as Chillar Party and Bhoothnath Returns Another trend established over the years is that he never works with a director twice except Raju Hirani This adds to a growing perception that he ghost-directs his films Which self-respecting filmmaker would want to work with an obsessive star whose involvement in the film is – as rumours go – like that of an absolute monarch Watch: Aamir Khan’s Dangal wins audience’s heart Talking admiringly of Aamir to Tehelka magazine a few years ago the usually caustic Naseeruddin Shah noted “Aamir is the only star I can think of who is not producing films only to make money And the same directors have fallen flat when they have attempted similar films without him That says a lot about him” One part of Shah’s statement rings true but the other is wide off the mark Commercial success matters to Aamir just as much as critical hosannas The box-office has been kinder to him than most stars because of his promise of something new each time he returns to the marquee Unlike Salman Khan whose glory run at the box-office is a recent phenomenon Aamir has been a consistently successful star for years Highly competitive he tops the numbers race Call it competitiveness or insecurity Aamir rarely shares screen space with another Khan or a Kumar In Dangal he has once again teamed up with an ensemble of small-time actors who appear in key roles If it’s in the interest of the film he even lets them steal his thunder Think: Rang De Basanti his biggest cultural moment How he stepped back and allowed Siddharth to deliver the climax Or Satyamev Jayate his apology for corporate social responsibility which put journalism and social issues at the forefront with AK as the maudlin host taking a backseat A still from Aamir Khan’s Rang De Basanti From his media interviews Aamir emerges as a man whose mind works like a filmmaker or scriptwriter He speaks repeatedly of the need for simplicity in storytelling In the Fat to Fit promotional video for Dangal he said he didn’t want to wear prosthetics to look fat because “maza nahin aayega” No interview of Aamir is complete without him using the term ‘maza’ (entertainment) as a point of reference It istempting to wonder if his understanding of ‘what is entertainment’ owes in part to his influential uncle Nasir Hussain the maker of such frothy money-spinners as Dil Deke Dekho Caravan and Yaadon Ki Baraat Also read |Dangal box office collection day 1: Can this be Aamir Khan’s biggest hit tilldate Mr Hussain was committed to the service of entertainment Aamir is following in his footsteps At least in the last decade Aamir’s dedication towards turning boring subjects into something interesting and engaging for the masses has become his signature Who would have thought a satire on education (3 Idiots) would become one of the highest grossing Hindi hits of all time He takes an underground film like Delhi Belly and turns it into box-office gold Look at some of the subjects he has tackled as an actor producer and director in recent years – media circus over farmer suicides in Peepli [Live] a complex intersecting narrative set in Mumbai (Dhobi Ghat) dyslexia in children (Taare Zameen Par) and Bombay noir (Talaash) Aamir makes “social issues” entertaining to watch Those who know the 51-year-old star say he trusts his instincts above everything else Several media reports call him a risk-taker who is equally smart at reading the pulse of the audience Is this magical connect with the audience the secret to his success One guess could be that Aamir is the First Audience of his films and it is in this ability to put himself in place of the viewer that helps him strike a chord with moviegoers The other guess though is simpler That he makes movies only to make them a hit (Shaikh Ayaz is a writer and journalist based in Mumbai He also paints) For all

approach to the governor house" PTI Over the last few days most of the mainstream media have noted the sudden change in the quality of Congress’s electoral campaign – a forceful final push that has been unwitnessed so far And the star who made this change possible was Priyanka Gandhi In the process many thought Priyanka stole the show from brother Rahul Gandhi who has been in the fray much longer Priyanka has been there only for a few days – mostly in family constituencies such as Amethi and Rae Bareli – but she turned many more heads and made national headlines every day She touched an emotional chord with the people and got even with the BJP which got into a proxy war by attacking her husband for alleged mega buck land deals What’s so remarkable with Priyanka that distinguishes her from Rahul What’s that X-factor that makes her connect with people and the media much more than Rahul although she has been in the fray for only a few days Is Priyanka the bigger political star for the short term Reuters image Could it be the impact of a well-planned cameo by Priyanka or is it the result of the characteristic reluctance that Rahul displayed prior to the campaign For most seasoned observers he was an on-off politician despite being endowed with the best pedigree The Times of India noted on Tuesday: "It would appear that Priyanka has achieved in her eight-day stint in her mother and brother’s constituencies of Rae Bareli and Amethi what Rahul hasn’t been able to in numerous meetings across states She has had the nation hanging on to her every word and the media follows her daily The BJP too seems to be taking her challenge seriously" "The brother and the sister work as a team What Rahul can’t do Priyanka does She has a big role bigger than you can imagine in his campaign and her mother’s She’s like his chief of staff the chef de mission…” is how technocrat and Congress camper Sam Pitroda views her There’s certainly something that distinguishes Priyanka from Rahul She appears fearless She doesn’t mind taking on the BJP and Narendra Modi She doesn’t care about the allegations against her husband although she is unable to provide a convincing answer to how he made so much money so quickly And she has a cheerful air about her that disarms both the people and the media And Rahul "He is an idealist He wants to build the party It is a party of many views Rajiv also talked of building the party in the Mumbai session of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) Rahul wants to actualise those ideas What’s wrong with that” asks Pitroda Even when Modi calls her a “namoona” Rahul plays like a decent politician who initially appeared reluctant Is his decency the mark of an incomplete politician a well-behaved and well-spoken man who is (real) politically weak in a country where politics is an art of attrition Almost all neutral political observers in the country have found his behaviour – that peaks on occasions such as the Jaipur Chintan Shivir and the Delhi AICC session plummets even before the euphoria dies down – unpredictable In a long drawn out battle this is a disadvantage In comparison Priyanka’s intervention is like a steroid shot – effective for the short term and with immediate results Her body language and attitude (her reference to Indira Gandhi regarding truth as courage) are quite frontal Her attack on Smriti Irani the BJP’s candidate against Rahul in Amethi is a telling example: "There is a leader who had contested from Chandni Chowk Go and ask people of Chandni Chowk if she visited them again" Had she been in the field longer could she have been this effective Perhaps not In Rae Bareli she told the media to listen to the first seven minutes of speech and then relax because what would unfurl during the day would only be a repeat Running such a refrain for a few days might be effective but not for a whole month Whichever way one views it for the short course Priyanka has been much more effective The mother-daughter duo of Sonia and Priyanka has been more effective that the Rahul-Sonia combo for nearly two months Interestingly she herself has the answer as to what makes her different from her brother "He is a visionary like Rajiv Gandhi…Those who criticised Rajiv Gandhi are today criticising Rahul because like my father even Rahulji has a long term vision” Priyanka said So in short Rahul is like a test cricketer while Priyanka is a 20-20 star She can afford to step out and play unconventional shots that can hurt but Rahul needs to be the sheet anchor And it certainly suits his demeanour For all the latest Sports News,Mahesh Goud in attack. download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Somya Lakhani | Pune | Published: February 21, Pakistan and China on Thursday
