It's the work of a creative ducking Bollywood's usual rules of engagement: a film to cheer and not to be messed with.
Though the basic plot about a despised underdog who, against overwhelming odds, grits his teeth and trains for the big match could hardly be less clichéd, its cinematic level of invention makes sure that much more is going on.
Perspective is a powerful tool for viewers. And it can be appreciated that here is a film that changes according to how, and not why, we watch it.
The dialogue is robustly filthy, the violence unflinching and the music loaded with innuendo.
The 156-minute Mukkabaaz is the best film in last one year or so, and this year couldn't start on a better note. Let's cherish Vineet Singh and his thickheaded brawler with open heart.
Sports in India is much more than just the game and Kashyap tries to throw the spotlight on that, but he tries to land too many punches, and in doing so, misses the mark.
Mukkabaaz is a total knockout.
Mukkabaaz isn't just a well-executed film. Its major strength comes from its super performances.
Kashyap's movies are littered with superbly written and performed sequences that do not always cohere into a convincing whole. In trying to create a socially aware entertainer through Mukkabaaz, the director throws too many punches.
Kashyap has made one of his best, most layered films in years, and all while sticking to his guns.
It's a delightful ringside view of athletes trying to make it in sports that are considered insignificant in India. Plus, how many times can you boast of watching a Hindi film that has flawed, but ferocious leads?
This is a love story, a thriller and a social realist drama all at once.
