Offering the new approach to an universal story, audience will see Vineet Kumar Singh throwing punches to make a point. He toils and gives his last drop of his blood, sweat, and tears to the film. The film is written and directed by Anurag Kashyap who is back to his home ground.

The film stars Bhagwan Das Mishra (Jimmy Sheirgill) who plays a corrupt politician. Exceptional role, the regular portrayal is creatively done by the director of the film. Shravan Singh (Vineet Kumar Singh) has been working hard and training as a boxer under Bhagwan Das, who is an ex-boxer, but has many milestones to reach where he deserves to be on. He belongs to a different cast and ideology, Shravan falls in love with Bhagwan’s niece Sunaina (Zoya Hussain). Bhagwan is not pleased, he uses his professional might and tries every possible way to stall Shravan claim any fame. We see a war between love and passion, Anurag Kashyap has managed to layer many aspects in the main story. The film is about Shravan’s love story and his passion for boxing, it is also about rivalry with Bhagwan. The story takes many turns and has much more to offer.

Mukkabaaz is a good film with detailed script and has many contributions to it including – Anurag Kashyap, Vineet Kumar Singh, Mukti Singh Srinet, K.D.Satyam, Ranjan Chandel and Prasoon Mishra. The film takes a cue from Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky, Anurag Kashyap is remarkable and presents a new film.

Vineet Kumar Singh is well deserving for every praise possible, he portrays the character of a boxer who’s in a war between his heart and mind. His punches are powerful and lands straight to the heart making the audience feel for Shravan. He fights hard to the finale of his life and ensures a win. Zoya Hussain as Sunaina brings out the with her expressions even after being the one who can’t speak and is deaf-mute by birth. She is great in her role. Jimmy Sheirgill is delightful to watch on screen, his charismatic presence is great. Ravi Kishan has a smaller screen time but gives the maximum impact. He plays a coach who has been a victim of racism, Ravi is able to articulate his emotions well.

Mukkabaaz is about casteism, politics in sports, domestic violence and many more burning issues.

Mukkabaaz Movie releases on 12th January, 2018.
