Surya has already got a place in the Tinkle magazine and National Geographic Magazine for his not so usual role. The movie has humorous rap track Rappan Rappi. It also has around eight songs such as Tere Liye, Life Mein Fair Chance Kiska (Jimmy Mani Song), Dream Time, Kitthon Da Tu Superstar, Nakhrewaali, and Shaolin Sky. Popular composer Karan Kulkarni directed the music for this film.
An inspiration for the story of Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota
A child inspired Vasan Bala to make this film and this is surprising. Vasan Bala met a child with congenital insensitivity to pain at a dental clinic. The kid was very insensitive to pain and he did not require anaesthesia during any process. According to Vasan, congenital insensitivity to pain means the person is born without pain receptors and hence, becomes insensitivity to pain. But the film highlights the fact that males who don’t feel pain are treated as superheroes by our society. But in real life, it’s a health condition.
‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’ also stars Gulshan Devaiah, Mahesh Manjrekar and Jimit Trivedi. Bala is paying a tribute to the filmmakers like Hrishikesh Mukherjee aka Hrishi-da known as the pioneer of middle-class cinema and the award-winning filmmaker Sai Paranjpye by using their middle-class environment in the backdrop.
The film premiered in the Midnight Madness section of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, where it won the People’s Choice Award: Midnight Madness. MAMI Film Festival screened this film and gave a standing ovation to Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota.
Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota will release on March 21, 2019. The film is getting big thumbs up from the critics already.
