Mukkabaaz (English: The Boxer) is a 2017 Indian sports drama film co-written and 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. Produced jointly by Anand L. Rai and Kashyap's Phantom Films, the film stars Vineet Kumar Singh, Zoya Hussain, Ravi Kishan and Jimmy Shergill. Mukkabaaz is scheduled to release theatrically on 12 January 2018.
Shravan (Vineet Kumar Singh) is a low caste boxer in Bareilly who falls for Sunaina Mishra (Zoya Hussain). Sunaina however is the sister of the local goon Bhagwan Das Mishra (Jimmy Sheirgill) who vehemently disapproves of this match not just because of the caste disparity but also because Shravan had assaulted him once. Bhagwan Das is a powerful authority in the boxing federation and he ensures that Shravan never gets selected for the district championship. Shravan then goes to Varanasi and trains under Sanjay Kumar (Ravi Kishan). He is desperate to win so that he can get a job in the railways and thereby also ask Sunaina’s hand in marriage. This obviously is not going to be easy and moreover, Bhagwan Das has still not forgotten the humiliation of being assaulted by Shravan. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
