Liger Movie Review: Incredible performances from the cast, especially Vijay Deverakonda and Ramya Krishnan, have elevated the heights of emotions invoked by this story which was already a thrill ride, to begin with. The movie keeps moving at a constant pace which is its biggest strength as fictional action Indian dramas often get stuck at one point.

Liger Story: Liger, portrayed by Vijay Deverakonda, has only one dream, which is to win the national championship in MMA. He moves with his mom (Ramya Krishnan) to Mumbai to work toward his goal. Tanya (Ananya Panday), a rich girl, cheats on him in the midst of his struggle. The heartbroken Liger then rises from the depths of gloominess to somehow win the international MMA championship and, at last, accomplish his mother’s dream as well.
Liger Detailed Review:
Vijay Deverakonda has put a lot of effort into his role, and one can see the positive effects on the big screen. His acting is just perfect enough as a guy with stammering. His characterisation only gets better as the film progresses. The MMA fights featuring Devarakonda are a treat to the eyes.
Ananya Panday has pulled off a satisfactory performance in her Tollywood debut. She succeeds in making viewers hate her character as the film’s script demands. Full marks to her for finally coming out with a performance that can be a game changer in her career.
Ramya Krishnan has already shown us what she can do as a fierce and intense mother in Baahubali. The South Indian actress does an exceptional job in this film as well. Her passion and ambition will resonate with the people.
Mike Tyson, brought into the film as a special attraction, does his job well enough. His presence on the screen is a delight and memorable experience. Tyson’s character brings a sense of calmness and fun to this serious action drama.
Ronit Roy, as the coach, has left no stone unturned to make people admire his performance. Vishnu Reddy is also someone who will impress you.
The film thrives on the sentiments of a mother, and the action included to complement it is just about near-perfect. The background scores, especially the rap, are filled with great energy. Lastly, the action scenes which are the life of this film are exceptional, and stunt director Kecha and his team must be appreciated for the same.
All in all, Liger is a film that deserves at least a one-time watch in the theatres.
