The Man Who Feels No Pain trailer
The Man Who Feels No Pain is an action-packed flick that combines an outrageous premise, show-stopping Bollywood set pieces, inventive martial arts brawls, and a freewheeling, pop-culture sensibility. It is described as a delirious action-comedy about a young man born with the ability to feel no pain who begins a quest to vanquish 100 adversaries.
It is a glorious B-movie homage to kung fu and exploitation films of the VHS era: martial arts films, Bollywood extravaganzas, Shaw Brothers shoestring epics, Django and Western movies, American trash classics. It stars Abhimanyu Dassani (son of popular Bollywood star Bhagyashree) in his acting debut and is the first Indian movie to play TIFF’s Midnight Madness Section.
