Final round

Boxing on the marina

The movie, ‘Irudhi Suttru’ (final round) must have been quite popular. It featured an upcoming female boxer coached by a discredited champion. The boxer’s role was played by Rithika Singh who won a national award for her performance. Madhavan too, was impressive  as the coach. Most of the setting was in  a fishing hamlet – may be near Santhome.  The movie was also produced in Hindi under the name ‘Saala Khadoos’.

This movie must have had quite an impact. For the first time, I saw boxing matches taking place on the marina. Maybe such events were going on for long but this was a first for me. What was more interesting was that the referee – cum – coach was a woman! More power to the eve.
