Mukkabaaz, the drama directed by Anurag Kashyap brings out his specialty of displaying the raw images of our society with superstitious beliefs and its practice, injustice and unfair treatment of commoners in India. Movie with a running time of 2 hours and 50 minutes gives you a complete ride of the caste system which is still practiced in various parts of India and it also beautifully describes a struggling life of an athlete to achieve his dreams. In the movie dreaming of becoming a great boxer makes the main role go through the rough edges where he meets people misusing their power and position as the government employees which is done in the name of caste, talent, experiences, religion and education.
Anyone who is at junior level in the office or a dreamer or whose parents fail to understand their child’s passion or who has unfortunately born in a lower caste family or you have disagreed to bare injustice towards yourself from any higher authority, can easily relate to the main character of the movie. There is a sweet love story too between the hero and a girl who has a speech disability but holds up her wishes to get educated and prove herself that she is not less than any other normal girl.
As means of characters played, Vineet Kumar Singh as main role (the Hero) has made a tremendous effort to display himself as a boxer as well as justified his acting skills in the means of an athlete, dreamer, lover, lower level government employee and a husband. On another hand, short but still strong role played by Zoya Hussain, without even a single dialogue she conveys a lot of things to the audiences from her unwillingness to compromise her dreams considering the fact of her disability to speak. She also gives a short view on how females are hardly given any rights to educate themselves, make their own choices and live their life following their dreams.
Other main character which needs a great acting ability is apart played by Jimmy Sheirgill as a head of state boxing federation, a bad social worker, unbearable family member and selfish uncle. Jimmy Sheirgill makes a remarkable acting that explains that how people of high authority can misuse their power and destroy talents, love between people as well as life. The rest of the actors like Ravi Kishan, Shree Dhar Dubey and many more had made the movie more noteworthy to watch and will make the audience engaged with the movie till the end.
