Top Reasons Why You Should Immediately Watch the Movie

1A long journey

A long journey

The movie started its pre production in the year 2013 and released in 2016. If you look at the history of boxing movies in India, they are only a few of them. While Indian cinema has always been ready to accept and welcome different movies, movies about sports have been less. Do you remember Sylvester Stallone? Well, he wrote Rocky’s screenplay and wanted to star cast someone who knew what they were doing. But the producers weren’t happy with the decision. The same thing happened with Irudhi Suttru as well. Madhavan was very sure of the script and wanted a person who knew what they were doing. It is of course easy for actors to act. But a real life boxer would know more about it. That is what Madhavan wanted too.

2Running time

Running time

In India, running time of a movie can be up to 2 hours, 30 minutes including the intermission. The running time of this movie however was only 112 minutes, which makes it clear that the movie is an inspiration and something worth watching. When a movie is short and the running time is less, you need to make the movie in such a way that the audience understands everything in the given time. Achieving something like that is definitely wonderful. This way you achieve the fact that you are watching a good movie and even commercially the movie gets more space in the theaters with more number of shows per day.

Santosh Narayanan, though is a new music director with just a few music albums in hand, has done a fantastic job with songs and background score. All of these songs are addictive and are chartbusters in the FM stations. The music definitely plays an important role in a sports movie like this and Santosh has proved his talent by bringing out the best in him.

6Makers had confidence

Makers had confidence

The producers are the backbone of a movie. When the producers have confidence in the movie, there is nothing more needed for the movie to stand on the winning race. UTV was very confident of the script, the actors and of course the different attempt. That is one of the main reasons why the movie made it to the hit list in the first place.

It is my sincere request to all of you to please go and watch the movie because of the wonderful attempt by the crew!
