51: Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Vasan Bala

Anupama Chopra Film Reviews

Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota is a fanboy’s ode to the movies. Writer and director Vasan Bala goes back to his childhood and summons up the films he grew up loving - from Hong Kong martial arts movies to Manmohan Desai. And from this colourful, delightfully nutty source material, Vasan conjures up an action-comedy, which looks and feels like a comic book, about an unlikely superhero. Vasan’s rich imagination gives us a roster of memorably kooky characters. Mard ko Dard Nahin Hota is self-aware.
