The trailer for Vasan Bala’s Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota (The Man Who Feels No Pain) just released and it makes perfect sense why the film is India’s official selection for the Toronto International Film Festival. 

Starring newcomer Abhimanyu Dassani (son of actor Bhagyashree) in the lead role, the movie talks about the story of a man who feels no pain – literally. 

Born with a rare condition called congenital insensitivity to pain (yes that is a true thing!), Surya (Abhimanyu Dassani) strives to train harder and stronger to rid the world of muggers one day. 

Starring TV actor Radhika Madan as the female lead, this hilarious, slightly quirky, and completely action-packed trailer appears to break the norms of typical Bollywood movies. 

For her foray into Bollywood, Radhika Madan has definitely picked unconventional movies as Vishal Bhardwaj’s Pataakha is her debut film. 

Written and director by Vasan Bala, who has in the past also assisted in screenwriting for Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet and Raman Raghav 2.0,  the trailer definitely piques the right kind of interest.
