It's not the first time our multiplexed minds meet the dhool from Haryana's akharas, a fascinating world where grabbing someone by the neck, about-flipping them to the ground and helping them rise is acceptable behaviour. Sultan (July 2016) grabbed the first mover's advantage in showing us this world but let's get this right - it was a Salman Khan film with wrestling in it; while Dangal is a wrestling film with Aamir Khan in it.
