The Man Who Feels No Pain

A man born with no pain receptors is on a mission to defeat 100 enemies in this Indian action comedy from Peddlers writer-director Vasan Bala.

"Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota directly translates to "man feels no pain." It's a memorable declaration from the 1985 Indian action movie Mard, describing a masculine ideal. In this exceedingly eccentric crowd-pleaser, writer-director Vasan Bala wittily applies the axiom literally, concocting the outrageous story of a young man born without pain receptors who longs to defeat 100 opponents in a kumite tournament."

Writer-director Vasan Bala's wild and wacky yet also warm and fuzzy fable about a resourceful young man who transcends ostensible physical limitations to become a two-fisted, swift-kicking hero likely will prove to be an irresistible crowd-pleaser.

The Man Who Feels No Pain is a fun ride, unashamedly zany and eager to please, even if the humour is very broad and the sprawling plot too baggy for an action-driven piece.

...frenzied mish-mash of Bollywood musical, martial arts actioner and comic book origin tale is told with an eye towards western cinematic sensibilities and an affectionate reverence of filmic pop culture.
