Returning to the director’s chair, Anurag Kashyap has made a story very close to his heart. Produced by Anand.L.Rai, who is famous for his creation, Tanu weds Manu; this collaboration is surprising. But looking at the reactions to the trailer, we can conclude that it is a very successful collaboration!
The makers reveal that the story of Mukkabaaz is about many things. The grass root levels of the “Real” India, the passion that goes into becoming a sports person, how the deficient system of our country fails to promote talented people at the correct time. But most of all, it’s a love story.
The real-ness of the film is reflected in the real-ness of the cast. The lead actor, Vineet Singh, went through rigorous physical training to play his character. Ravi Kishan, who plays the role of a coach, gained weight and underwent a physical transformation to do justice to his character. The character of Zoya Hussain is mute in the film and she learned the sign language to deliver her dialogues.
The amount of efforts taken by the cast and crew can be seen in the gritty feel of the trailer (will add a link to the trailer here). Is it going to be a film that brings out the rampant injustice of our country, or is it going to be just another name in the long list of sport’s dramas of Bollywood? Only time will tell! The film releases on 12th January, 2018.
