Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota Movie Review An action packed movie served with generous helpings of comedy

Director: Vasan Bala

Movie Stars: 3.5/5

Of late it feels there is no novelty left by Bollywood film-makers to offer especially when it comes to the storyline, but Vasan Bala is here to break that notion as he has come up with something new and his movie steers Bollywood in a new direction.

While the eccentric story is commendable the direction and treatment of the movie take major brownie points. Also, the screenplay is enhanced by terrific performances by all actors including Mahesh Manjrekar, Jimit Trivedi, Gulshan Devaiah. Talking about the lead actors, Abhimanyu Dassani, who is Maine Pyaar Kiya actress Bhagyashree's son makes his debut with this movie and he will surely impress you with his acting chops. The female lead Radhika Madan who made her Bollywood debut with Patakha plays the role of his childhood sweetheart Supri and she compliments him effortlessly.

The movie is the story of a person who has a very rare and strange condition called congenital insensitivity to pain. In simple terms, he lacks the ability to feel any pain. His optimistic grandfather or ajoba makes sure he learns how to deal with the condition by making him understand when to react when someone hurts him. He makes him binge-watch martial arts movies and teaches how certain actions and reactions lead to pain and he can react by saying 'ouch'. His grandfather also helps him to learn martial arts.

One day young Surya ends up watching 100-man karate kumite match which is fought by a one-legged man Karate Mani and few years down the line when he is all grown up (but still dorky) finally gets the chance to meet his childhood idol Karate Mani. 

The second half of the movie explores Karate Mani and his evil twin brother Jimmy (played by Gulshan Devaiah) which leads to a lot of ups and downs, action and Surya reuniting with his childhood sweetheart Supri (played by Radhika Madan).

The film does well to call out people who think women and physically challenged people are not strong enough to learn let alone ace the martial arts. But in the movie, they are strongest and independent as opposed to the stereotype. The movie also makes a point about how you childhood years shape your adulthood life. The same backs how later Surya becomes a crusader and Surpi a social worker.

There are tons of brilliant scenes in the movie and most of them revolve around Surya and his dad (Jimit Trivedi) and ajoba, i.e. his grandfather (Mahesh Manjrekar). Another major takeaway is the action scenes as they are choreographed amazingly and they will surely make you say 'ouch' and Karate lovers will enjoy it thoroughly. I have to say that actors did full justice to their incredible comic timing as well as the writer for he has deftly written comedy scenes. Mahesh Manjrekar steals the show with his perfectly timed comedy punches. Sometimes it reminded me of Ryan Reynolds starrer Deadpool as the wacky style and humour are quite similar.

Speaking of the story, the unpredictable and out of box plot keeps the viewers hooked till the end. Some inconsequential and over-the-top scenes are what many of you may not like but despite a few loopholes, it is one of the entertaining movies of the year till now. While the first half was super funny and entertaining, the second half was marred by an overload of drama, action and slow pace. Watch it if you are a sucker of action comedy movies.
