Liger, the pan-India film starring Vijay Deverakonda and Bollywood actress Ananya Panday, releases in theaters today. Puri Jagannadh directed the sports-action film, which stars Vijay as the titular MMA fighter boxer with Ananya. In addition to Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday, former world heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson appears in the film as a cameo.
According to the teaser, Liger is the story of a man born and raised on the streets of Mumbai who goes on to become a world champion in kickboxing. The film is now available in theaters in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. The Hindi version of Liger, on the other hand, will debut exclusively at night today (August 25), with regular shows beginning on Friday (August 26). The film will be released in theaters on August 25 in all other languages.
Story & Plot
Balamani (Ramya Krishna), a Karimnagar resident, wants her son Liger (Vijay) to become a national champion in martial arts. The mother-son team relocates to Mumbai to pursue their life goals. Liger, a macho man, initially focuses on his work goal but gets distracted when he falls in love with Taniya ( Ananya Panday). The rest of the film is on the lead couple’s conflict and the World MMA championship in Las Vegas.
Undoubtedly, Vijay Deverakonda has put in a lot of work in bodybuilding, dubbing as a stuttering character, and, most importantly, acting in this harder role. His fights are fantastic, as is his dance in Coka Song & Akdi Pakdi.
The hero and the director get high credit. Ananya Panday looks fine, but the audience is irritated every time she comes on screen because of the poorly written Taniya role. Ronit Roy is an excellent MMS coach. Ramya’s character is a mixed bag. The role of Srinu in his getup fails to elicit laughter. Other characters including Chunky Panday and Ali delivered their best. Vishu Reddy as Sanju is an excellent choice.
