Storyline of Mukkabaaz :

Mukkabaaz is the story of Shravan who is an aspiring boxer in Bareilly city(UP).He falls in love with  a high caste, mute girl, Sunaina.To marry her, he needs a stable government job which he tries to achieve through Boxing.But then he realises that in India boxing is about everything else but not boxing. While he works day and night in preparation for his tournament fights, but he actually has to fight with casteism, nepotism, doping, religious fanaticism and a continuous class struggle.
A sports drama was never more fun, and it’s probably because the film reflects on certain commonly held attitudes and beliefs of society, while at the same time maintaining sight of its central theme.
Anurag Kashyap is back in his old form with this film.
 From showing how badly India needs to move ahead to a caste-free nation, to uncovering the dark reality of its government departments, Kashyap’s film is one tight slap on the faces of those politicians and bureaucrats who simply watch innocent people suffer and struggle. But thank god we have people like Shravan who knows how to give it back and fight for his rights.

At a time when Indian audience has been served mainstream love stories featuring chocolaty boys, Vineet comes across as a breath of fresh air in this unusual romantic sports drama. His Shravan is fearless, unapologetic and madly in love and the way Vineet slides into his character is so effortless and commendable. You just can’t take your eyes off this boy. His charm as Shravan is so good that it should not be missed.
Kashyap has a fantastic cast, led by Vineet Singh who gives both his body and soul to Shravan. Jimmy Sheirgill is sufficiently chilling as the malevolent Bhagwan Das, though I couldn’t figure out why his eyes were so red for much of the film. Debutante Zoya Hussain is lovely as the spirited Sunaina and I really enjoyed Ravi Kishan as the coach who tries to help Shravan realize his dream.
This movie is must watch for all!!
