Ever since Lagaan released in 2001, Indian Audiences have always welcomed sports-drama films and Chak D e India, Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag have followed suit, to name a few.
Irudhi Suttru (aka) Saala Khadoos has certainly captured the imagination of audiences through its hard-hitting, true to the genre story coupled with brilliant, incisive screenplay and technical aspects.
Coming to the lead cast, R.Madhavan, who makes a comeback to Kollywood after 4 long years, has truly delivered what's expected of him, and has underplayed his role of a coach (Prabhu), who struggles to keep his emotions in check and displays a badass attitude, whomsoever may be.His ability to choose classy scripts and providing his best in such movies has been a regular feature and he has set a high benchmark for himself. Keep doing such great  movies Sir!
Ritika Singh, who makes her debut, is the natural, playful, bubbly yet 
strong-willed boxer who makes a perfect combo for Maddy and solely carries the movies on her shoulders.Ritika,who is professional mixed martial arts expert,has fitted into the role of 'Madhi' with aplomb and delivers admirably,be it emotional or gut-wrenching fight scenes,overshadowing Maddy in some scenes.Truly a Great Find and watch out for her!
Special mention to all the support cast particularly Nasser sir, Radha Ravi sir, Kaali Venkat and Zakir Hussain who have delivered fantastic performances, without any hiccups along the way
Finally, a Big Salute the Director,Sudha Kongara Ma'm,who has come out of the cliches that women directors are soft-spoken and make only feel-good movies.Her hard work and efforts over a period of 6 years are clearly evident in the way she has sculpted the movie through a riveting screenplay coupled with top-notch dialogues by  Arun Matheshwaran,who has written bold dialogues which strike a chord with the viewer instantly and additional screenplay has been done by Rakjumar Hirani and R.Madhavan himself.A Sports-Drama movie certainly needs efficient background score and Santhosh Narayanan has certainly provided one of the best movies of his career and his BGM takes the viwers to an altogether different level,especially in the climax sequence,which is of international standard.A big hats-off to the sound effect and mixing teams,who have put their heart and souls into d movie!Also the fight choreos have been done efficiently in a proffesional manner.
Irudhi Suttru - A movie to be welcomed with warm hands and a big wake-up call to restructuring the sports system in India, once again.
