Mukkabaaz Review : Anurag Kashyap attempts an abuse-free movie

Director Anurag Kashyap who always manages to portray various sections of the society in their most generic form is often criticized for the use of explicit language in his movies. In one of his recent interviews, he stated that the use of such language is not deliberate and he has also tried in his movie Mukkabaaz to not use such language.

He said, “Abuses are not deliberately used in my films. I let things happen in a natural and organic way. I have tried for the first time that no such thing should be there in the film ‘Mukkabaaz’,”

In the interview, he very aptly articulated the hypocrisy of the society by saying that things that happen often in society are criticized when presented in movies. He said, “We have become like this that we can see and hear such things in our routine life but not in the film, as if the entire burden of the society is on films. Many things may happen in the country but if they are screened in a cinema, then the society will be ruined.”

The Gangs of Wasseypur director credits this movie as a life-changing venture. He adds the source of the film was Italian film Best of Youth. He goes on to say, “Gangs of Wasseypur came to me at a time when I wanted to explore more”. He also credits Ram Gopal Verma as his motivation in doing his job without being affected by others.

Kashyap, who in the past gave duds like Bombay Velvet is said to be returning to his original excellence of craft through Mukkebaaz. It will be interesting, though, to see how do his movies look minus his signature abusive language.
