Action, comedy, pop-culture references and breaking the fourth wall. This film as all the elements of the movie Deadpool but it is yet original.

Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota is a whimsically joyful ode to the 80’s cult martial art movies and Bollywood commercial potboilers.  

Surya has congenital insensitivity to pain is a protagonist which came straight out from a comic book. He doesn’t notice when bullies insert a compass into his thigh or when his hand is cut.

Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota itself means The Man who doesn’t feel pain. So our hero, Surya grows up to be, at least in his own head, a crime-avenging superhero who kickass the baddies out in the world.

Surya picks up Karate lessons by watching a video of a 100 man knockout tournament that a certain Karate Mani (Gulshan Devaiah) organizes every year in suburban Mumbai.

As Surya grows up and exposed to the outside world, his first encounter is with his long lost friend Supri played by Radhika Madan and Karate Mani whose treasured chain has been stolen by his evil twin Jimmy. Now it's up to Surya to get the chain back, make Supri fall in love with him and earn Karate Mani aka Karate man's trust.

The first half appears a bit overstretched and the action-sequences after a point seem a bit repetitive but the second half increases the heat of the film as cliché psychotic villain Jimmy is introduced with an edge of the seat climax.

The newcomer Abhimanyu Dassani as Surya is promising and his efforts of learning the painstaking martial art stunts are quite visible on the screen.

This is quite seldom in mainstream Bollywood film that a female protagonist get an equal measure of action stunt and Radhika Madan packs a punch with her spectacular performance as Supri.

Gulshan Devaiah has twin character is quite entertaining with his glossy costume and quick wit dialogues. He is surely the scene-stealer of the film.

Mahesh Manjrekar’s character as Surya’s mentor is another highlight character of the film. He is the Mr. Miyagi of this Karate Kid who motivates him with some interesting dialogues.

But the whole credits goes to the captain of the ship, Vasan Bala who has created this world and delivered this unconventional piece to the celluloid.

This film will definitely not give ‘dard’ to the audience. A big shout out to the makers for breaking the cliched narrative and making an original venture.

The film tells the tale of a middle-class boy Surya (Abhimanyu), whose superhero’ qualities are essentially a congenital disorder that prevents himself from feeling any pain. There is a rather grim backstory behind this though. His grandfather (Manjrekar) tells him that every time he sees blood, he needs to say Ouch’. So our hero, while being picked on in school by bullies and gundas, would half-heartedly say ouch every time he is attacked. His close friend and crush Supri saves him and delivers punches left right and center. Yet, he wonders, 'why does she not say ouch when she bleeds?' That’s some smooth overturning of gender stereotypes. Read full review

Thirty years ago, the job given to me whenever the family would rent a VHS cassette would be to “check the print.” The tapes inside would get worn out after multiple playback in multiple players, and eagerly anticipated screenings would go wrong if the quality wasn’t — behold the pun — up to scratch. These scratches of overuse indicated something seen so often it had literally been rendered unwatchable, but also something beloved. Something worth pausing and rewinding and cueing up and watching again. Those who love the movies also love when movie clichés line up just right. Read full review
