Packed with punch

A sports-movie based on boxing, is what Irudhi Suttru is all about.  Women filmmaker are expected to come up with a romantic pot-boilers, while Sudha Kongara has come up with a super show of grit, determination and valour. A story of underdog emerging triumphant against all odds.

Three cheers to the filmmaker for pulling it off in style. There are hardly any dull moments and there are enough action moments that grand the attention of your eyeballs straightaway.

The strength of Irudhi Suttru lies in it characterisation. Though it may resemble Chak De, like a coach striving hard to bring out a champion in underdog, the movie brings out emotions and the life in slums for aspiring sportswomen.

Madhavan has shed his romantic tag to play a rugged boxing coach and Ritika Singh as aspiring boxing champ.  

The star cast includes Mumtaz Sorcar, Nasser, Kaali Venkat among others. Music is by Santosh Narayanan while Sivakumar Vijayan cranks the camera. Delmar's stunt choreography steals the show.

Aadhi (Madhavan) is a no-nonsense boxing coach. Caught in an ego clash with chief of Indian Boxing Federation, he is been asked to go to Chennai to create a champion boxer.

He comes across Madhie (Ritika). A fun-loving slum girl in Chennai. He spots the raw talent in her. Now he is all set to bring out the champion in her.  There are many ups and downs in their relationship. 

Eventually they rise above all challenges and achieve what they want to.Madhavan is the best bet. He pulls it off very well and looks convincing. Ritika Singh looks convincing and tailor-made for the role. 

Santosh Narayanan does a good show with his BGM, while dialogues by Arun Matheswaran has given superb dialogues. 

Irudhi Suttru is a knockout punch
