“Bahut Hua Sanman” is the tagline of Anurag Kashyap’s next directorial venture titled “Mukkabaaz”, which has been produced jointly by Phantom Films and Anand L Rai. Having been screened at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival as well as at the Mumbai Academy of Movie Image (MAMI) Film Festival, and garnered accolades, this “Bollywood” movie is all set to be officially released throughout India on Friday 12th January 2018. Furthermore, since the mercurial Anurag is returning after more than year (his last release was Raman Raghav 2.0 in 2016) this movie is certainly one of the most “anticipated” releases in Bollywood this year.
The plot/story of this movie is based in small town North India, and revolves around a boxer named Shravan Kumar (Vineet Kumar Singh). Now, Kumar intends to make it big in boxing and trains in a gymnasium owned by local mafia don Bhagwan Das Mishra (Jimmy Shergill). In addition, he also manages to fall in love with Mishra’s deaf niece Sunaina (Zoya Hussain). To complicate matters, Mishra belongs to the higher caste while Kumar is from a low caste. And so, the clash between the don and the “Mukkabaaz” (the brawler) over professional and personal issues is what forms the core of this film. Adding spice to the narrative of this movie aptly titled “Mukkabaaz” is the use of “politics in sports”seen in India (which includes issues such as casteism and cow slaughtering) as the background. The music is composed by Nucleya and Rachita Arora while, the background score has been given by Prashant Pillai. The song “Paintra” composed by Nucleya has really caught on well (especially in the social media world) with the youtube video of this composition garnering over “2 million views”.
With the release date of this movie fast approaching, here is hoping that like all other Anurag Kashyap movies this film too “packs a punch”.
