Mukkabaaz isn’t Anurag Kashyap’s finest work, but we’d definitely like to see him making more such films.
Aspiring boxer Shravan Singh (Vineet Kumar Singh) has a lot of potential and talent. But when he stands up against his tyrannical coach, Bhagwan Das Mishra (Jimmy Shergill) all hell breaks loose. Bhagwan uses all his power to make sure Shravan’s career is finished. It doesn’t help that Vineet falls for Bhagwan’s mute sister Sunaina (Zoya Hussain).
There’s something about stories in which the character defies all odds to achieve something and Mukkabaaz is one such story. While the first half flows smoothly, the second half is a bit inconsistent. But the film is still good. You really root Shravan and really want him to succeed. It also raises questions about the recent cow-and-beef related attacks and killings in our country. Brownie points for the unconventional climax.
Zoya Hussain acts really well without uttering a single word. Ravi Kishan is terrific. We really wish to see him doing more Hindi films. Jimmy Shergill is reliable as always. Vineet Kumar Singh delivers a great performance.
Mukkabaaz is finely made film that’ll leave you inspired. We give it 3 stars with a kink.
