The Good, the Bad and the Former Wrestler :

• Is it worth it that Aamir Khan gained almost 30kg for the film? Yes it is, as the film is a true masterpiece that will be remembered in years to come.

• Based on a true event, the movie is one of the best films in Bollywood history as the incredible storytelling, the stellar acting, and almost every small detail of this film is simply remarkable and enjoyable.

• Also, the message contained in this film is very meaningful and powerful, and didn't turn out to be too preachy or pretentious.

• Aamir Khan has always been one of the best Bollywood actors on par with the likes of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, and his performance here is a level up to his already brilliant reputation.
