Raja Sen | Hindustan Times: 4/5
Hilarious Hindi action movie scores a flawless victory. Vasan Bala’s action film is about fights and villains and the importance of pain. It is an ode to joy ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5
The film is made in a certain space and once you surrender yourself to it, it’s an outrageous journey that you won’t regret taking. This one’s truly hatkey...has haske zaroor dard hoga ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3/5
Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota works best when it is klutzy and bouncy and light on its feet, and those are the parts which help us go past the occasional flatness. It is the kind of film in which you are not supposed to dig deep for meaning or logic ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 4/5
A joyous action-comedy. Cinema good or bad invites you to daydream. Childhood reruns of our favourite movies were fuelled as much by admiration as by the urge to emulate ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3.5/5
It's a homage to action movies of the past. The hero and the film are alike - they do things that you least expect them to. Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is therefore is packed with delightful surprises, not the least of which are the ways in which it turns the genre on its head ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5
MARD KO DARD NAHI HOTA rests on an interesting idea and is well directed and performed ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5
An absorbing fusion of old-school Bollywood with a modern twist of humour and action makes this a stick-to-your-seat affair ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 4/5
Delightfully whimsical. Vasan Bala knits his film with a rare steadiness of zany humour and perpetual energy ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 4/5
A must-watch!. Vasan Bala creates a world so mad yet meticulous and unlike no other in Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota ... Full Review

Pradeep Menon | FirstPost: 3/5
A cocktail of gorgeous action sequences, absurd laugh-out-loud moments. The film remains watchable throughout, despite all its shaky foundation, precisely because it gives us an experience we rarely see in Indian cinema. It is stylish and cool and silly all at once, which does work in its favour as well ... Full Review

Lakshana N Palat | India Today: 3.5/5
At its heart, the film pays homage to action films from the past, doused in Bollywood masala and a witty narration that acts as the glue keeping the story together ... Full Review

Suparna Sharma | Deccan Chronicle: 4/5
Classic martial arts films come to life in this fun caper that stays with you ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3/5
All-all-all, the film’s gags don’t travel well outside the context. It’s one of those -- ‘you’ve to be there’ -- kind of films. But within those two hours, you’ll surely laugh your head off ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra, Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 3/5
An Action-Comedy That Looks And Feels Like A Comic Book. This richly imaginative and absurdist film gives us a roster of memorably kooky characters, inspired action sequences and priceless moments ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | Book My Show: 3/5
What stays with you are some terrific moments and a bunch of inventive set pieces – like a long fight sequence interrupted by a senior citizen enquiring about cancelled cheques. This blend of action and humour yields mostly winning results. What the film needed was more of it, and consistently ... Full Review

Pavni Jain | India TV: 2.5/5
Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is surely a one-time watch. While the first half of the film is slow-paced, the second half is hilarious and enthralling ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: 2.5/5
A film like Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, essentially a nostalgic postmodern riff, works best in referential mode – both borrowing and contributing to the popular culture – but stumbles when relying on its own weight ... Full Review

Baradwaj Rangan: 4/5
An affectionate, gently winking, beautifully made homage to our movie memories ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 1.5/5
A Painful Disaster. If ever an unusual commercial idea of an action drama with a difference went horribly, terribly, irrevocably wrong, this is it ... Full Review

Ankita Bhalla | Peeping Moon: 3.5/5
However, one cannot take away from the fact the Vasan managed to create a mad, bizarre, eccentric, and even absurd world which was nothing less but entertaining ... Full Review

Ashwin Bharadwaj | Lens Men Reviews: 3.5/5
The uniqueness is the USP of this action comedy that constantly spoofs the predictable nature of almost every genre that got mentioned in the film’s narrative. With stunning visuals and quirky humor getting presented in a really exciting way, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is definitely for those who like to see variety ... Full Review

Ajit Duara | Open Magazine: 2/5
Were the film stylistically made, it might have worked, but it is so poorly mounted and shot, ‘B’ grade vibes are given off by the end of it ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre: 3.5/5
A Delightful Reminder of Why We Keep Going to the Movies ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 3/5
Quite a bit of fun while it lasts even though it is predictable at most times. Just good to see an attempt by Hindi films in the pulp genre ... Full Review

Behind Woods: 3.25/5
A must watch terrific action-comedy that caters to all set of audiences ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: 3/5
Under all the eccentricity and slo-mo gags and Easter eggs, there’s a warmth and enthusiasm which saves the film from being merely clever. Many bones are broken in Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, but not one of them is cynical ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 3.5/5
Surya feels no pain, but there is nothing unfeeling about Vasan Bala’s retro tribute to the small, silly and lasting ways in which the movies leave an imprint on the soul ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Qrius: 3.5/5
Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is at once an affectionate paean to childhood dreams without any filters of practicality as well as a tender tribute to a life spent at the movies ... Full Review

Shikhar Verma | High on Films: 2/5
Vasan Bala's film has endearing characters who all call for a big celebratory leap forward for conventional Hindi films; but the entire arc that comes along with the self-awareness lacks real oomph or glow ... Full Review

James Marsh | South China Morning Post: 3.5/5
The Man Who Feels No Pain instils nothing but giddy joy in its audience, and announces the arrival of an impressive new action talent ... Full Review

Stephen Romei | The Australian: 3.5/5
Bala thinks the "B-movie heart still beats strong." The Man Who Feels No Pain is without doubt part of that throbbing pulse but I reckon it deserves a B+ ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 3.5/5
Campy, cheesy and hilarious - a truly funny Hindi film after a long time ... Full Review

Stephen Dalton | Hollywood Reporter: 3/5
Hit and miss, but mostly good fun ... Full Review

Vicky Roach | Daily Telegraph (Australia): 3.5/5
A butterfly-kicking, bilingual crowd-pleaser ... Full Review

Rafael Motamayor | Bloody Disgusting: 4/5
A huge sense of humor and self-awareness, combined with kick-ass action and some killer songs make this a great midnight film ... Full Review

Joe Leydon | Variety: 3.5/5
Writer-director Vasan Bala's wild and wacky yet also warm and fuzzy fable about a resourceful young man who transcends ostensible physical limitations to become a two-fisted, swift-kicking hero likely will prove to be an irresistible crowd-pleaser ... Full Review

Norman Wilner | NOW Toronto: 3/5
What I didn't expect was how oddly sweet it is, and how Dassani's warmth makes Surya more idealistic dope than hapless fool ... Full Review
