Who also saw "Wrestling Dad" that Indian film? It's older, but it's probably still somewhat interesting for what's going on. This movie is about two Indian girls who are more physically fit and stronger. But their father is very serious, forcing them both to run several miles a day, and also cut their hair especially short (in order to improve their wrestling level). The two young girls later went to wrestling matches, the whole story is very moving and enviable, probably why this film is very popular in the mainland.

I saw this movie but I know it by a different name (Dangal). Apparently it is based on the true story of the Phogat sisters. The father wanted a son who would be a pro wrestler like himself, but all he had were the girls. The daughters really resisted having to do wrestling initially because they suffered so much from their peers for it. He forces them to train with the same intensity and dedication he would expect from a boy. It is definitely worth a watch :)
