Movie Info

Adi Tomar had a dream to win the boxing gold for India. Instead, he languished in a nightmare for a decade after his gloves were spiked during a match by his own coach, blinding him in the arena and handing the match to his undeserving opponent. Shattered by his loss, Adi turned to a life of cynical self-destruction. Loyal friends somehow bring him back to boxing as the coach of the low-rated Indian women's boxing team. Adi continues to dream - this time for a fiery young woman. Adi spots in her a champion. So begins a partnership between a man who loves his sport and a girl who loves her freedom. It is the beginning of a beautiful friendship and a journey towards an impossible dream.

Critic Reviews for Saala Khadoos

All Critics (9) | 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.

  • These overcooked, manufactured emotions are redundant layers in context of typical underdog stories. Saala Khadoos is everything that is wrong with this genre.

    Feb 6, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film is crisp, and does not stray away from its USP at any point - its emotional connection with us, the audience.

  • The central characters might be nicely defined on paper but the performances are set a few notes too high.

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

    Jul 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.
