Dangal 18th day box office collection, 18 days total box office collection report: When I saw the trailer of Dangal I was wondering if Dangal would be on par with or better than Sultan. Then, Salman Khan made a statement that Dangal is better than Sultan. You decide. Dangal means a wrestling competition and not a riotous situation. Movies made by Aamir khan are something that every Indian looks forward to and he raises the bar everytime. His attention to detail is terrific and one fails to notice any flaws in his films which are otherwise apparent in most Bollywood and even Hollywood films.

Aamir beautifully captures many issues in Dangal – the gender bias, the quest to bear a son, the Indian mindset that girls are meant only for household chores, how can girls take up wrestling , the problem that Indian wrestlers face when they make the shift from akharas to professional wrestling and finally Indian babudom which does not allow sportspersons to flourish and excel.
Dangal overseas till Sunday (8th January) – Rs 180.58 crore.
Dangal domestic till Sunday (8th January) – Rs 345.30 crore.
Can we now say that India has found an alternative to Raj Kapoor, Guru Dutt , Alfred Hitchcock, James Cameroon and Steven Spielberg in Aamir Khan? I think so. And yes, Salman is right. Dangal is better than Sultan.
