Panna sold his home to finance his first movie เกิดมาลุย shot in years 1985~1986. Other actors have to pay also to be part of this movie! At the beginning, main actor was supposed to be Toon Hiransap and the main actress was supposed to be Suriwan Suriyong but finally Isan actors were used! Panna Rittikrai's first movie เกิดมาลุย was not successful in Bangkok. Sieng Fong is a Hong Kong lawyer fleeing from Hong Kong to Thailand as he has got important papers showing the corruption of his boss. He takes refuge in uncle Kosi's home. Five ninjas are chasing him and storm uncle Kosi's home. Two young teens, seen later in Panna movies (Krissanapong Rachata and yyy), are getting an art martial training from Thong (Panna Rittikrai). Five masked men come to defy Thong and to check his skills. Thong defeats them and is hired by a Hong Kong policeman to find back Sieng Fong. Sieng Fong and uncle Kosi's daughter are gone to Nong Khai. Uncle Jaem helps Thong to find them. Multiple fights and motorbike chases are featured as ruffians try to block Thong. A final fight again the five ninjas shows many skills (sword fighting, martial art...) and ideas (action sequence replayed a second time with a different angle, action sequence shown at slower speed...) that were reused in other famous Panna’s movies including Ong Bak and Tom Yam Goong. Panna’s movies remain famous for their action scenes genuineness.
