Mukkabaaz is a 2017 Indian sports drama film directed by Anurag Kashyap. It was screened in the Special Presentations section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and the 2017 Mumbai Film Festival. Writer-director-producer Anurag Kashyap is back at the top of his game in The Brawler (Mukkabaaz), an unconventional boxing film and love story that offers a barbed critique of India’s much-abused caste system, religious intolerance and the political corruption that permeates society. In the grand old halls of Liberty cinemas in Mumbai, made at a time when it was Bombay, history of Hindi cinema has a special space. Made in the art deco style the year India got its independence, it was named Liberty celebrating this very spirit of new hopeful India that was going to unfold.
