'Mukkabaaz' released with a wham this weekend and people from all around the country welcomed it with open arms. We couldn’t stop appreciating director, producer Anurag Kashyap’s filmmaking skills.
He got inspired by stories of unsuccessful sportspeople in the country, who suffer because of the dire fault in the system. This film presents to us the tale of Shravan, a passionate boxer, who trains at a gym controlled by the local ‘Don’ Bhagwan Das Mishra. Shravan falls for Mishra’s niece Sunaina but he doesn’t approve of it because of his caste and several other existing scuffles in between the two of them.
The entire movie revolves around how Shravan strives to win Sunaina's hand in marriage and becomes a successful boxer while trying to avoid retaliation from the Don.
This film is full of soundtracks which depict the robust and serious lives, that boxers in our country lead.
Let’s read a thing or two about the soundtracks here.
The fabulous Indian Music Producer, Udyan Sagar also known by his stage name ‘Nucleya’, who co-founded the ‘Bandish Projekt’ along with Romil Shah in 1998 has composed this catchy and fast piece of music. Vineet Kumar Singh and Divine (Vivian Fernandez), the rapper came together to pen down the lyrics, while Divine, our desi rapper, sang the song. ‘Paintra’ isn’t that impressive, but the song is quite high on energy and the video provides some motivating visuals showcasing the budding boxer Shravan’s tiff with Bhagwan Das Mishra. Rating: 2/5
Mushkil Hai Apna Mail Priye
This amazing riot of a love song opens with a Moorchang, Banjo and Flute prelude. Rachita Arora’s heart touching composition, Sunil Jog’s catchy lyrics and Brijesh Shandilya’s mellow singing help add a soft and delicate touch to this song. Nawazuddin Siddiqui appears for a special performance in between the video. You’ll surely love this soothing piece toppled up with bits and pieces of humour. Do listen to it, if you haven’t heard it yet. Rating: 3/5
The ‘Haathapai’ music video came out just two days back. It almost appears to be like a war-cry of the unseen and the unheard. The highly motivated, ferocious boxer Shravan is shown to get up and fight against all the odds. Sukhwinder Singh comes back with a booming swing. Rachita Arora adds a folk touch to the composition and Hussain Haidry simply rocks with the lyrics. Rating: 2/5
Bahut Hua Samman
Well, this one won’t impress you that well. Swaroop Khan’s voice falls completely flat beyond the second octave and you’ll feel that Swaroop is kind of dragging through the entire track, even Rachita’s composition will fail to impress you. Hussain Haidry tries to add the eastern U.P, Bihar touch to the lyrics. It’s just a one-time listen. Rating: 1/5
As of now, you’ll just be able to listen to the audio version of ‘Chhipkali’, as ‘Eros Now’ hasn’t released the video version yet, but Rachita Arora, as well as Vijay Arora, make the track sound really hilarious and comic. Hussain’s lyrics show you his ghastly and disgusting attitude towards lizards. You’ll start jumping and dancing around like crazy, as soon as you hear this madly entertaining melody. Rating: 4/5
Bahut Dukha Mann
‘Bahut Dukha Mann’, is a melody based on the Dusk Raaga 'Puriya Dhanashree'. It’s a splendid classical musical piece, which will lift up your spirits and make you all chirpy/happy. Sung by our talented composer Rachita Arora along with Dev Arijit and written by Hussain Haidry, ‘Bahut Dukha Mann’ is a once in a lifetime kind of song, which is sure to leave you hooked on to it for a long time. Rating: 4/5
Vineet Kumar Singh and Zoya Hussain, the new theatre girl from Delhi, simply rocked with their performances. Some of the songs are exceptionally brilliant creations, whereas some of them aren’t that special and sound quite mundane or boring, but musical tastes differ, so you might end up loving all the songs.
