What Is Liger About?

Liger (Vijay Deverakonda) comes to Mumbai along with his mother Balamani (Ramya Krishna), to become an MMA national champion. He joins a Jeet Kune Do institute to learn mixed martial arts and he falls in love with Tanya (Ananya Pandey). What happened to their love story and how he becomes the winning fighter is all about Liger.

Vijay Deverakonda appears as a martial arts fighter and he transformed himself into that look well. Other than that, there is nothing interesting about him in the movie.

Ananya Pandey’s role is horrible. The romantic track between the lead pair is a patience tester. The young actress tries to be bubbly in every frame, even when it is not needed. The heroine part is tiresome altogether.

Ramya Krishna is given a mother role who mostly does the motivation part with some cuss words. Ali, Chunkey Pandey, and others are fine in their brief roles.

World famous Mike Tyson appears in the last half an hour of the movie. He is completely wasted and his role ends up as a joke in the end.

Convincing a world-famous heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson for a Telugu movie is a big feat. But his role was written so badly that it ends up being pointless and messy.

Puri stuck with the template of a cute girl falling for a tough guy. He just added the concept of mixed martial arts and the fights as the padding. The dialogues of heroism or the elevation in the usual Puri style can’t be seen anywhere in Liger. The total ‘lover also fighter also’ ends up as one of the weakest and the silliest storylines from Puri Jagannath.

Liger has got the openings big, but it is hard for it to keep it up.
