The Man Who Feels No Pain (2018)

Hong Kong Panorama Corporation Ltd. 2019 DVD edition



Text written 2021-08-24


A somewhat odd and interesting indie martial arts action drama-comedy that was met with some interest when released.
The film starts with the main role person, Surya (Abhimanyu Dassani) narrating how it went when he was born, and how
his mother died, but the narration isn't very truthful though.

Surya suffers from the very rare medical condition "Congenital insensitivity to Pain" and should've been dead already as a
kid, but his grandfather (Mahesh Manjrekar) showed him old martial arts VHS tapes and teached him of how to live with
his condition. Surya watched the old tapes and especially the one's with the one-legged karate master (Gulshan Devaiah)
and he trained hard to become a Karate Man himself.
His best friend as a child was the girl Supri (Radhika Madan) and he wanted to beat up her drunken father who abused
her, but then they lost contact (she disappeared) and didn't see each other for many years.

Surya vs. Bad Guys

Surya growns up despite his medical condition and he finally becomes The Karate Man, and he wants his revenge on the
men that caused his mothers death. One day he sees a girl kicking down a group of men, and she's grown-up Supri.
As a kid she was found on the street by the One-Legged Karate man and he took care of her and trained her in the martial
arts. One-Leg has a martial arts school and plans to hold a Tournament, but he's harassed by his gangster brother Jimmy
(Gulshan Devaiah in a double role) and his brutal underlings.

Will Supri leave her boring and nasty husband and will she, Surya and One-Leg Master fight against Jimmy and his boys ?
Soundtrack by Karan Kulkarni. Film in anamorphic widescreen with hindi audio 5.1 and english subtitles, region 3, no extras
