''Misaalein dee jaati hain, bhulaai nahi jaati, '' said Aamir Khan's character in Dangal.
The movie that sent an adrenaline rush into every viewer in the theatre I went to watch it, had left no doubt in anybody's mind that it is completely flawless. And why not, Aamir and the Dangal crew took two long years in its making, and it was obvious of them to release it without errors.
My eyes that had tears during many of the movie scenes but they were also able to find out some Dangal movie mistakes that everyone else obviously missed to notice.
Let's not waste time and find out all of them, and yes, there are five such mistakes.
Disclaimer: The movie is outstanding and no small mistake can diminish its impact on us.
Geeta's haircut right before the CWG 2010 Started:
It's shown in the movie that a frustrated Geeta Phogat who lost all her international matches in a continuation, cuts her hair to a very short length right before the Delhi Commonwealth Games took off.
But where's the mistake in this?
If you Google Geeta Phogat Haircut/Geeta Phogat Short Hair and try your best to find even a single picture where Geeta can be seen sporting very short flicks, you'll get nothing but the image of all her sisters in a boy cut hairstyle but not even a single pic of hers.
Still not convinced?
Yes, right, this is from Geeta Phogat's real fight in her 2010 Delhi Games final wrestling bout and I don't need to tell you that she is carrying a pony. Although a short one, but not as short as the one Fatima Sana Shaikh was seen having in the movie.
Right? Wait, there is more to the same match.
In the same match when Geeta wins a Gold medal in what we can call as a very beautifully dramatised ending, there was something very wrong that happened.
The scoreboard, as was shown in the movie, showed Geeta winning the match beating the Australian wrestler: 3-0, 4-6, 6-5!
I repeat, it was a three-setter, 3-0, 4-6, 6-5!
The match ended in just two sets with Geeta winning the game in a very dominant way beating her rival: 1-0, 7-0.
This is huge, isn't it?

Again from the same match.
It was shown in the movie that Geeta was struggling to find her father, Mahavir Singh Phogat in the audience right after having won the Gold.
But, when you see the video (a the end of this article), you will see that she was obviously very happy after winning the match and there was no sign of tension on her face at that point in time.
Note: We at WittyFeed completely support the freedom of creativity and this is not to say that the makers were wrong.
In a scene right after the movie interval, it was shown that Aamir struggles hard to train her daughter without the permission of NSAI. In his pursuit, he decides to watch all the match videos of Geeta which she lost to let her know what to do, on a phone call.
But, as he came from a poor background and had to try hard financially to keep the ends meeting for 6 long months, he had not much money in hand.
Then too, it's shown that he books a whole theatre to watch the recordings alone rather than taking it to some cyber cafe (it was in 2010) and do the same thing spending lesser.
Quite dubious, right?
This mistake is about Aamir's hairdo. Yes, you heard it right.
As you can clearly witness in the picture above, Aamir has combed his hair from his right and I know you will agree with me on this.
But wait, what about the next click?
Yes, I used no photoshop and you can clearly see the shooting has him combing from his left. Now when you go for the movie, I don't want you to get caught up with these minor details and spoil your experience, but yes, this is true!
Applaud or curse me later for this!
Lastly, I want to apologise for pointing out mistakes in such a groundbreaking release and will like to throw light on the fact that Geeta Phogat, Babita Phogat and the whole Phogat family made the nation extremely proud through their inspiring conduct. Also, the Dangal movie team did a fabulous job in bringing their story in front of the nation.
WittyFeed hopes for many Olympic Golds coming from the Phogat family in the near future.
Dangal Movie Mistakes end here and I want you to run to theatres and watch it twice, thrice and get inspired.
