'Saala Khadoos' review: Predictable, but Madhavan's performance makes it an interesting watch!
It is good to see the new trend of sports drama in Bollywood after Shah Rukh Khan's 'Chak De India.' The genre made a special place in the Indian film industry and films like Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag also did a great business at box office. Thus, it is to see how this newly released Sudha Prasad's 'Saala Khadoos' turns out.

The film has released today and the team of 'Saala Khadoos' have a great expectations from it. So what makes this film stand out from our typical Bollywood drama? Let's find out!

The best part about this sports drama is its unusual casting. R Madhavan who usually play romantic characters in the films, have been chosen to play a rude, moody boxing coach. Undoubtedly, he has delivered a brilliant performance and people are appreciating his new avatar.

He has nailed the character entirely and receiving lots of praise. Also known for matchless acting skills, Madhavan has physically transformed himself for playing a disgruntled coach. The story moves as he finds a prodigy in Ritika Singh - an aspiring boxer and wants to make her a champion.

Precisely, Saala Khadoos is a tale of a inconstant boxing coach who desires to turn a rude, uncivilized but very talented girl into a champion and lives his dream through her. Later, both the coach and aspiring boxers forms a guru-shishya relationship. Now, when all goes well, a twist follows where they need to face administrative apathy and sports politics to emerge as a champion.

Madhavan's performance is the lifeline of the film and makes it an interesting watch. The actor is brilliant as the coach. In her debut, Ritika is no less and delivers a good act as expressive Madhi.

However, the story is predictable and the film's script is weak. It lacks proper treatment and hardly has any scene that increases curiosity. It is quite strange that the movie, which is based on boxing lacks punches. It has no drama even inside the ring.
