Dangal - Movie Review

Now, its been a while since I wrote any movie review.

Dangal. Special movie with a special person after a long time kindled certain emotions within me. Let's get into the movie. Before it starts, they clearly mention this is about the Indian wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters Geeta and Babita so you know who and what. I think all of Indians knew this already since this movie was one of most expected movies in 2016!The movie starts rather slow in a rural place off of the state of Haryana, India. As we know Aamir plays Mahavir joined by Sakshi (quite famous in the TV scene) as his wife.

I would rather not dwelve deep into the movie after the amazing introduction of how Mahavir but would rather talk about all those emotions that were stirred by the movie. So let's start.

Mahavir's sadness when he gets baby girls when the whole town was expecting a boy along with him. His mixed feelings when he says girls can also wrestle and prepares the ground. Closing all emotional loopholes as a father so that his daughters see him as a strict and stubborn coach and not a father when training. Finally, in the climax when he displays the feeling his daughters and we the audience were equally yearning for.

The cast of the movie is well decided and performances are well planned and motivated.

Aamir, from Lagaan to Wrestling, from Mangal to Dangal; proves why he is Aamir and how much dedication and passion he has for movie making. You can't stop noticing surreal perfection in each look of his.

I want to sum this up by saying Wrestling is a sport... Dangal is an emotion.

Happy 7 years Yusuf.in!

Yes, Yusuf.in blog has completed 7 successful (well if I don't say successful who will? ;-)) years in the internet world. I kinda am very late in writing this post as it has been a few months already technically, since I renewed the blog.

I now think it makes sense to write this at the end of every calendar year instead of when renewing the domain.

As always, I always share my very first post - Welcome to Yusuf.in whenever I write a happy birthday blog.

UPDATE: Apple iPhone Error 53 is now fixed!

So, after some days of I'll be damned look on my friend's face, now I see him I'm rejoicing dude.
A recap of what happened: http://www.yusuf.in/2016/02/Apple-iPhone-Error53-only-way-to-fix-it.html

Apple said that Error 53 was a security feature to protect customers when it was rolled out with iOS9.1
It said: “This security measure is necessary to protect your device and prevent a fraudulent Touch ID sensor from being used. If a customer encounters Error 53, we encourage them to contact Apple Support.”

A recent development delivers a hopeful news - the company said the issue was a “factory test”. A fix was issued with iOS 9.2.1 and Apple is apparently apologising from what I read on the Internet. The company added: “This was designed to be a factory test and was not intended to affect customers. Customers who paid for an out-of-warranty replacement of their device based on this issue should contact AppleCare about a reimbursement.”

As I read more, I understand that this turnaround from Apple comes after widespread publicity and it being served with a class action lawsuit over in the US.

So, long story, short (once again) - The latest fix will let users with disabled iPhones - yes, the error 53 one! - clear the error by connecting them to iTunes and installing the updated iOS (9.2.1).

However, keep in mind - Solving Error 53 does not re-enable Touch ID, as a third-party replacement of the home button could potentially allow unauthorised access to a locked phone by modifying the fingerprint sensor.
