Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota box office collection prediction: Vasan Bala film to earn Rs 1-2 crore on Day 1
Unbridled zaniness is the glue that holds Vasan Bala's Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota together. A pulsating martial arts action-comedy, the film throbs with life and energy thanks to a deliciously capricious plot, a staccato narrative rhythm punctuated with fractured flashbacks, a tongue-in-cheek directorial style and a soundscape every bit as wacky as everything else that has gone into this flight of whimsy.
Revolving around a middle-class Mumbai boy whose 'superhero' qualities spring from a freak medical condition rather than from any special genetic power, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota mixes the deadpan and the delirious with delightful flair to deliver a dizzying entertainer. It is a fun ride because it does not take itself overly seriously, knows what it is doing with genre elements, and unabashedly revels in the freedom to push willing suspension of disbelief to its limits. It simultaneously celebrates and genially mocks B-movie excesses.
Surya (Abhimanyu Dassani in a star-making debut) is a strangely taciturn boy who has been weaned on a staple of action flicks and tall tales supplied liberally by his maternal grandfather (Mahesh Manjrekar, terrific).
