Written and directed by Vasan Bala, stars Abhimanyu Dassani, Radhika Madan, and Gulshan Devaiah in significant roles. Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is a comic tale of a young man who cannot feel any physical pain pointing out on a disease known as congenital insensitivity to pain. Seeking an advantage in this rare kind of disease, the young man Surya played by Abhimanyu Dassani sets out to learn martial arts to catch criminals.
The story of this film is distinctive and an ode to fun in its treatment as well. Produced by Ronnie Screwvala, the film is an amalgamation of old-school Bollywood drama and contemporary humour. Comic essence of the film comes in two ways -situation and not-so-filmy yet simple one-liners. The action-driven sequences captured in real pace and slow-motion, too, is a treat to eyes.
Son of a veteran Bollywood actress Bhagyashree, this is Abhimanyu's first film and trust us, when we say that the actor couldn’t have asked for a better delightfully packaged debut. Abhimanyu is raw and appealing on the silver screen biting into the skin of his character. In this comedy-drama feature, we can watch Abhimanyu performing stunts, playing with words while sticking to the innocence of his character, and dancing.
Going by the fact that Gulshan Devaiah has always impressed us with his splendid acting skills be it in Hunterr or Shaitan, the actor is playing two roles in Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota -Jimmy and Mani. Undeniably Gulshan is all amazeballs in the film with his comic timing, dialogue delivery for crazy one-liners and his andaaz of course! Credited to his amusing character sketch, especially badass Jimmy, and brilliant performance, once again we are starstruck on Gulshan.
Speaking of The Heroine of the film, actress Radhika Madan looks charming throughout the film. Though her character, Supri, is a hot-headed person who can be seen performing all kinds of action in the film.
Surprising element when it comes to star performances in the film is well-known versatile actor Mahesh Manjrekar who is playing Surya's grandfather. His experience comes into play to bring the house down with his simplicity in this movie.
Being Vasan's debut directorial, the filmmaker did justice to his job. Though the direction falls narrow in the later first half, it picks up extremely well in the second half of the film. But speaking of film's music, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota certainly features an underrated album. Composed by Karan Kulkarni, the film consists of eight songs in total. The film's music album is full of surprises with every song being unique in its own way.
Having said that, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is surely a one-time watch. While the first half of the film is slow-paced, the second half is hilarious and enthralling. So, if you are looking to spend some fun time with your friends, take them with you to watch this film. Otherwise, wait for a couple of months to enjoy watching it on your laptop or television!
