A new, bloody poster and trailer have been released from Mukkabaaz, Anurag Kashyap’s sensational love story that involves, boxing, politics and lots of grit. The movie premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this year and Mumbai Film Festival, MOMA. It has accumulated critical acclaim for Kashyap’s direction and the performances from Vineet Kumar Singh and Zoya Hussain. Mukkabaaz tells the story of a low class boy named Shravan, who falls in love with a girl who is the niece of a local don. The movie has been touted as being entertaining, whilst also dealing with political and caste issues in a very nuanced manner, that nonetheless will keep the audiences hooked to the screens.
The reviews from Toronto were ecstatic, claiming that the movie could be a big financial success in India, and the response to it in Mumbai was similarly enthusiastic.
During the poster launch, Ravi Kishan, who is also gaining critical acclaim for his performance in the movie commented that his character was very simple to play. He said, “Mukkabaaz is my own journey, my own pain. It was the easiest role because it was my own life story.”
Anurag Kashyap is known for his movies that deal with the realistic issues in India and are often violent, but also contain great dialogue and performances. Mukkabaaz is being hailed as being another knockout feature from him, after the breakout success of Gangs of Waasseypur. That film gave Nawazzudin Siddiqui, a role of lifetime and coincidentally, Vineet Kumar Singh was also an integral part of the cast, and had impressed critics and audiences with his natural performance. This could be a breakout movie for him and propel him to superstar just like Nawazuddin.
The trailer for Mukkabaaz will give the public a furious and entertaining sneak peak of what awaits them when the movie is released next year.
