Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota – Movie Review

This movie took me by total surprise.. liked it and enjoyed it and laughed at all the silly jokes and even felt the underlying pain felt by the parents of the child who can not feel pain. Losing his mom early and being brought up by an overprotective father, Surya, Abhimanyu Dasani, is fed on a diet of Superheroes by his Ajoba, Mahesh Manjrekar. Surya grows up in a secluded environment and is pretty messed up till a trip to the city and meeting his friend from his childhood, Supri, Radhika Madan just rights it all.
