Mukkabaaz happens to be a sports drama where the way the main character displays his passion for boxing has been appreciated much by the audience.
The film also underlines the horrors of the caste system and how it still plays a strong role in various facets of life. Mukkabaaz was also screened in the Special Presentations section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and the 2017 Mumbai Film Festival.
Besides Vineet Kumar Singh, the film also stars Zoya Hussain, Ravi Kishan and Jimmy Shergill playing pivotal parts.
Interestingly, the filmmaker's hard-hitting drama Mukkabaaz which was premiered at the 2017 Mami Film Festival in Liberty Cinema received a standing ovation from the viewers.
The filmmaker is known for presenting a powerful narrative in his own unique style. After the debacle of Bombay Velvet, Anurag Kashyap certainly is back and that too in his own desi way of nail-biting storytelling technique.
