The World Television Premiere of ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota’ on &pictures
This Saturday, 29th February get ready for a punches se packed entertainment with the World Television Premiere of the action entertainer ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota Hain’ on &pictures at 8 pm. Written and directed by Vasan Bala, this award winning film pays homage to action films from the past along with a perfect blend of Bollywood masala. Produced by Ronnie Screwvala, the film stars debutant Abhimanyu Dassani along with Radhika Madan, Gulshan Devaiah, Mahesh Manjrekar and Jimit Trivedi essaying pivotal roles.
Commenting on the uniqueness of the plot of the film, director Vasan Bala said, “While making Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, I wanted to tell the story of some of my favourite films from my childhood as if they were all rolled into one film like a dream, a riot of movie references, as I would see it. As a result, the movie has a lot of reference to many movies, comic dialogues, television shows, etc. even the clothes that Radhika and Abhimanyu wore, were all a representation of some movie or the other. The uniqueness I believe comes from being true to what it represents, being a movie lover, which we all are, whichever era we belong to, we are a tribe, in this together. With the World Television Premiere on &pictures, I would like you to also watch it and try to pick up all the movies references I have woven in the plotline.”
Elaborating on the prep that went into portraying Surya, Abhimanyu Dassani said, “The most exciting thing about Surya which impacted me and my life in a big way are the three months that I spent in isolation before we could start shooting. It was then that I went through a lot of introspection where I could touch upon what my insecurities are and what my purpose to get into films are. I realized what I am, what I need to do and what I need to stay away from. This practice not only helped me portray Surya but also do justice to the character. I also underwent a lot of training for the action scenes, as I wanted to and insisted that I did all the stunts. With the response the film has received even after a year, I can now say that the training rigorously for 9 hours every day for 6 – 9 months totally paid off.”
The plot revolves around the life of a differently abled child Surya (Abhimanyu Dassani) who is born with a rare disorder due to which he can’t feel any pain. This makes him a misfit – a social outcast who is bullied by his peers at school. But he finds an unlikely ally in his neighbor and school friend, Supri who always has his back. Encouraged by his grandfather, Surya aspires to be a ‘Karate Man’. His first foray into vigilantism is to help Supri against her abusive father, but that event leads to Surya’s family being evicted from the building, and Surya and Supri are estranged as kids. While his father keeps him away from the entire world, Ajoba pushes Surya to pursue his passion secretly. Hence, Surya grows up to believe that he is Karate man, a self-proclaimed vigilante who must fight bad guys, like the ones who killed his mother.
Will Surya be able to save the world from the bad guys?
