The Man Who Feels No Pain

(Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota)

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.... More

"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."

The Press Reviews

  • ...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. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review
