The Brawler (Mukkabaaz)
Location la: Redstone Theater
With Anurag Kashyap in person
Dir. Anurag Kashyap. 2017, 153 mins. DCP. Narrative. U.S. Premiere. In Hindi with English subtitles. With Vineet Kumar Singh, Zoya Hussain, Jimmy Shergill. Daring auteur Anurag Kashyap (Gangs of Wasseypur, Raman Raghav 2.0) adds a wholly original Indian perspective to the rich history of boxing and sport films. Aspiring boxer Shravan (Vineet Kumar Singh) slogs day and night to achieve his dream of being a recognized boxer. Things go awry when he falls in love with a high-caste, mute girl who happens to be the niece of his arch nemesis, the head of the state boxing federation. Shravan soon finds out that in India, boxing is about everything else but the sport, which is heightened by the volatile political climate of Uttar Pradesh.
