Another Passionate, Powerful and Gritty Boxing feature after Mary kom
28 January 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Irudhi Suttru (Tamil) AKA Saala Khadoos (Hindi) Review:

Sports drama revolving around coach student relationship, corrupted sports committee, Ego clash between players, rise-fall, victory- defeat, romancing coach, different levels of match, featuring aspiring sportsmanship and off course Patriotism these are the essential elements of any sports drama flick. So keeping the same formula but yet producing a refreshing film is a tough task to handle? But Director Sudha Kongara has brilliantly worked on the screenplay to keep this film solid and racy till the end. Take a bow Sudha. Excellent work. Casting: Holds important role for keeping us glued to our seats. Brilliant performances by the leads. Especially Madhavan as Prabhu (Tamil version)/Adi Tomar (Hindi version) has portrayed the role of a ruff, gritty, bitter, hard, raw and muscular coach on his 40s. Wonderful Maddy this would be one of your best performances in your career. The lead lady the boxer who comes to live the dreams of her coach is amazingly believable as an experienced actor Well done Ritika singh. Even without knowing Tamil her lip sync was much better than existing Tamil heroines. Well Supported by some known and unknown faces. Technical: Music, Cinematography and Editing are exactly resonating to the script and has in turn helped to elevate the whole movie experience. Verdict: Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Chakde India now Saala khadoos ! Get in for the ultimate boxing ride of this year and let's feel real sportsmanship and patriotism. So what are you waiting for? hit the theatres near you for real boxing the box- office. Dis satisfaction will be knocked out. By Sivakumar Balachandran
