The lead actor Vineet Kumar Singh has portrayed his character so well that he deserves every appreciation possible. Vineet has weaved himself in the character of Shravan explicitly well that it speaks directly from the heart to the audience.

Zoya Hussain beautifully plays the character of Sunaina who is deaf-mute by birth. Her expressions are mind-blowing that you to feel connected to her character throughout the movie.

Jimmy Shergill plays the bad guy of the movie and his mean acting as Bhagwan Das Mishra that it will surely make you hate his character. He delivers a knockout performance in this negative role.

Ravi Kishan might have a smaller screen time but his character as Sanjay Kumar leaves the maximum impact. Ravi expresses his tangled emotions as a coach who has been a victim of racism in a very simple yet powerful way.

Anurag Kashyap has very brilliantly covered politics in sports, casteism, domestic violence, rage, and revenge. The good thing is that the besides having so many parameters in the movie, Mukkabaaz doesn’t result in chaotic mix up of movie plots. The background score by Prashant Pillai will make you glued to the screen. Every song in the movie is a perfect fit to the situation represented and Rachita Arora is the brilliant mind behind this.

    After Bombay Velvet, Anurag Kashyap comes strong with Mukkabaaz, the movie is one of his best movies till now.  Few dialogues in the movie are very intense and to the point that will make you applaud. Mukkabaaz speaks reality of politics in sports, casteism, love, hatred, revenge all in a very appropriate manner. The actors have done brilliant acting that the movie will make you stay connected to the plot. Especially, Vineet Kumar Singh and Jimmy Shergill, their acting gives deep meaning to their character and Zoya has elegantly played the mute girl. The background score is very apt according to the scenes. Anurag Kashyap has proved again he is one of the best directors in the industry. Mukkabaaz is worth watching.
