Mukkabaz Movie Review: Vineet Kumar Singh Shines In Anurag Kashyap’s Greatest Film
Cast: Vineet Kumar Singh, Rajesh Tailang, Jimmy Shergill, Shreedhar Dubey, Zoya Hussain
Director: Anurag Kashyap
Rating: Five Star
There is nothing I love more in boxing than the feint. The act of throwing half a punch – the very beginning of the blow, to be precise – in order to bluff and misdirect your opponent, making them bob the wrong way before you hook them right, is elegantly artful. Mukkabaz does this devastatingly well. As a viewer, it is enormously thrilling when a film threatens or promises to go in one direction, prepares you for it, and heads surprisingly, joyously in another. This is not the film you might expect.
The film opens with a lynching. Worse, it opens with a lynching that is being recorded on a camera phone, as Muslim cow traders are beaten and exhorted. This is horrific, but the two boxers watching the clip later are merely bemused. They identify the goons as fellow fighters, and, walking past one of them, tease him as he cursorily denies the accusations.
Thus does director Anurag Kashyap double load the film right from the start, giving us a hero to love – soft eyed and sincere and spry – while making him worship a rapist like Mike Tyson. Kashyap is at his absolute best in Mukkabaz, all heart and heartland, a movie made with a vintage film sensibility but highly modern skills. And a story that bleeds. The love is pulpy and the revenge served up with masala, and that treatment takes this vital narrative farther.
Our boxer rebels, you see. One sunny day he steps up against his dictatorial boxing overlord, a coach who makes his students carry grain and clean mutton, and socks him in the face. This is not because of righteous indignation – though he claims it is, but because a girl in the coach’s house has arrested his attention and he wants, desperately, to make an impression. He is thrashed, soundly, by several, but he has played his card. He wants nothing more then to be her hero.
The film has four cinematographers – Rajeev Ravi, Shankar Raman, Jay Patel and I amuse a couple of them were responsible exclusively for the in ring action, which looks fantastically credible as well as mud coated and earthy. There is a terrific tracking shoot in the beginning, which follow Shravan as he enters the feudal coach’s home, and delivers the grain before looking up and the shot breaks only when he looks up to see Sunaina.
