Critic Reviews for Saala Khadoos

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Ms. Kongara seems to know the clichés of fighter movies and is mostly unembarrassed to embrace them. That keeps the film humming along, as does Mr. Madhavan, who grows in stature along with Adi.

Avoid this grumpy drama if you are looking for a good sports film. If you must, watch it for Madhavan's power-packed performance.

July 2, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Madhavan is good as the cynical coach who wants nothing more than to earn his stripes. Ritika is raw yet manages a knockout performance. Nasser, Mumtaz and Zakir lend good support.

Saala Khadoos is actually a love story, but there is enough boxing here for fans of the sport. The title refers to the attitude of its rude coach, but the movie belongs to his headstrong pupil.

November 1, 2017 | Full Review…

It's feisty, boisterous and spirited just like any revered sporting champion.

October 30, 2017 | Full Review…

Much like its title character, who often flares up for no reason, Saala Khadoos is a lot of hot air and not much else.
