Dangal – An educational movie full of positive energy

Mahawiya, who is a national wrestling champion, wanted his son to carry on his legacy and win glory for his country in world wrestling competitions. Unfortunately, even four children are girls, so that he completely gave up the dream. Suddenly one day, the daughter Geeta and Babita hit the neighbor’s boy, the neighbor came to comment, Mahavia from this fight accidentally found that the two daughters have wrestling talent. His dashed dreams were rekindled, and he decided to spend a year training his children to see if they had any wrestling talent.

At the beginning of the training, the two daughters go out early and come back late, all kinds of reluctant. For training, Mahavea defied tradition by cutting both daughters’ hair short and replacing their clothes with more mobile ones. In India, milk is used to worship the gods and chicken is not allowed to be eaten. In order to replenish nutrition, give milk to children and eat chicken. In India, there is a lot of discrimination against women. At the beginning, the neighbors could not understand Mahwiya, thought he was crazy, laughed at them and satirized them, and his wife could not accept this fact. But Mahavea persevered.

After a year of training, Mahawiya took her daughter to a local wrestling tournament, though she lost the first time. But under Mahavia’s tutelage, Geeta soon defeated the boys. Then she won the gold medal in the National Youth Competition and participated in the National Women’s Wrestling Competition. She won the National Women’s Wrestling Championship for three consecutive years. But Mahawiya’s goal is for his daughters to participate in the world competition. In his words, winning the world championship is an honor for himself. Winning the world championship is a glory for the country.

Now that you are going to participate in the World Wrestling Competition, you need to receive more professional training. Geeta went to the National Wrestling Training Center and began to learn the wrestling skills of the coach. Since the coach was not able to teach individual wrestling skills, Geeta did not perform well in many competitions. Realizing that the coach could not make her a world champion, Geeta asked her father again. Under the careful guidance of her father, she finally defeated her strong rival for many years and won the 55kg women’s world championship.

Along the way, father and daughter have never been understood, laughed at and become successful. Then to the confused period, and finally achieved glory for the country. The main purpose of the film here is to criticize the unreasonable religious beliefs and customs of India from the perspective of discrimination against women.

It is also a textbook educational film about learning and education. At the beginning of Gita and Babita, they were taught by their father, Mahawiya, and listened to and trusted their father. Home education is very important for children who are exposed to the world for the first time. The cultivation of one’s interest and the formation of one’s character are more from the influence of family parents’ words and deeds. Gita’s father taught her to win the national championship. When it came time to challenge for the world championship, Gita realized she needed more professional training and enrolled at the National Institute of Physical Education. At this stage of education from amateur (amateur here has been too bad, in real life education, should be earlier to receive professional training) to professional training, learning more systematic, more professional, more scientific. At this point, the film is only halfway through, and the relationship between learning and education is only beginning to get complicated. On the one hand, as the main body of family education, parents have been unable to continue to provide higher quality education output; on the other hand, although professional institutions have a well-established education system, they lack the patience and manpower to teach students in accordance with their aptitude. One professional coach leads all the people, regardless of the quality of the MEDALS, but with the number as the target, using the most conservative, the most reliable, the most universal education program to cultivate talents. This is understandable in general education, because not all talents need to be number one in the world to be successful. But sports are a special case, and the difference between a gold medal and a silver medal can be a million miles. To be a good athlete, this kind of education program is enough, but to be a miracle, great athlete, you need to be trained by someone. In our Chinese words, we must adopt the traditional teacher and apprentice model rather than the teacher-student model. At this time, as the leading role of the father began to play the role of master, in view of the characteristics of Gita good attack, the main push to attack first. At the same time impart psychological tactics, the false and real tactics. As a side of education, we’ve basically done our best. But to be a world champion, the learning side also needs to put in the effort and initiative.

From unconditionally receiving the education of her father to unconditionally receiving the instruction of her coach, Geeta learned passively at this stage. Active learning is the hallmark of success in education. When Geeta realized that the methods of her coach could not achieve the predicted goals, she began to doubt, began to think, and finally, under the special guidance of her master, her father, she improved herself to a higher level. But to get to the top, you have to walk the last part of the way. The master leads the way, the practice depends on the individual, the active learning, the self-learning can finally be integrated, the understanding of internalization. In the final, the absence of her father suggested that the master could no longer support her, and Geeta had to walk by herself. Save yourself, teach yourself to face a powerful opponent. The last move seemed to be an extraordinary performance after a last-ditch battle, but it was actually a steady accumulation of self-understanding.

The film takes wrestling as the carrier. At the initial stage, it mainly focuses on family education. To a certain extent, it needs to receive professional education. As a receiver, you move from unconditional learning to doubt, to active learning, and finally to self-education. The complete display to the audience of education and learning their respective responsibilities and role.

Family education plays an important role in children’s growth. Many viewers criticized the fathers for imposing their own hopes on their children. Qualified parents should let their children pursue their own dreams instead of selfishly fulfilling their own wishes. Although the purpose of the director is to borrow the daughter to practice wrestling to show that girls are not inferior to boys, criticizing the irrationality of discrimination against women. But in terms of educating children to watch movies, we also see that Mahawiya is actually a very good father. When Mahavea discovered that his two daughters had a talent for wrestling in a fight, he began forcing them to practice. Many viewers have blamed Mahavea for this, but attentive viewers will remember Mahavea and his wife saying, “Give me a year.” It means that Mahavea doesn’t insist on his daughters fulfilling their dreams, but tries to tap into their talents, and if he fails in a year, he will give up. Such parents are qualified parents. Observe their children carefully, discover their strengths, and force them to practice when their self-control is weak, which is most effective for their children’s development. When Geeta asked for professional training, Mahawiya, as a father, must have been heartbroken, because the child has been growing up in his control, and as a parent losing control can be difficult at first. Some parents, unable to bear the loss of control, will interfere in their children’s lives, causing their children to lose the chance to be independent. Ma Bao Nan is a typical example. Although Mahawiya did not want her daughter to travel, but her reason told her daughter was right, she must be more professional training, need to learn to let go. When her daughter loses herself in the training center and is infatuated with the skills of the coach, Mahavia, as an actual combat group, finds a problem and wants to correct her daughter, but because he cannot prove his theory with strength. This is also a common problem in our lives for parents, seeing their children deviate from the track, but because they are beginning to decline, can not use reality to tell their children to recognize the problem. As a child, because young, they learn some new knowledge in the outside, easy to self-expansion, it is easy to look down on the old age of aging, left behind by The Times of the parents. Mr. Mahawiya was frustrated, but he did not criticize his daughter, as many parents do. Geeta finally realized what was wrong with her, but she didn’t have the face to face her parents who had rejected her. Encouraged by her sister babita, geeta finally turned to her father for advice. When Mahawiya heard her daughter’s voice, she did not rejoice that she was right and her daughter was wrong. This should also be the first feeling of all smart parents, smart parents know that it doesn’t matter whether it’s right or wrong, the focus is to help their children out of trouble. Father and daughter stood together again. At the end of the film, Mahawiya can’t be there to help her daughter, but she’s already learned to be independent and self-educate. It is also the best reward as a father, to see their children really grow up. The whole film, from the excavation of the child talent, to break the shackles of the secular training children, to although not willing to but must face the child’s journey, to the child growth confused period of tolerance, to the child began to mature when the last help, the final achievement of the child independent growth. Isn’t that a textbook example of a father?

This is a movie full of positive energy of individual heroism, national treasure actor Amir. Khan appeared in front of the audience as a father, using humor to criticize India’s unreasonable discrimination against women by training his daughters to wrestle and win world championships. His vision, as always, was to awaken Indian democracy to the irrationality of its own religious beliefs and customs. At the same time, it is also a textbook film about education and learning, a film that teaches parents how to educate their families. This is an educational film full of positive energy.
