Ghani wants to prove himself a champion in the world of boxing despite his mother’s apprehension

There have been some exceptional sports films made in South India in recent times

Varun Tej has given better performances than he does in Ghani, but it’s not his fault because he doesn’t really get the scope to do so.

At the core of the film is a story that might be cliché but deserves to be treated with the kind of seriousness it deserves

Ghani is a decent sports drama, but that’s all it ends up being – decent. The film doesn’t provide anything you haven’t seen before
