Kashyap sent his second unit director Saqib Pandor), to record boxing tournaments on camera and the state tournament shown in the film is recreation of actual tournaments they had recorded on camera. They witnessed a boxing tournament happening under the tent and without an audience because their own space was occupied by something else and other boxers who sit and watch them. He also realized that after attending an actual boxing tournament in north India that there was no audience apart from people in power who decide which boxer should represent the state, and who will not. Kashyap then told Singh to train himself and he started training in Mumbai. Kashyap told him not to do the "filmi training" but to become a hardcore boxer. There are no boxing choreographers, action directors in the film. Singh was trained for a year to play the boxer's role by a coach, Anudeep Singh, who was coaching people for free and runs a garage for money. He told Kashyap that he wanted to be a boxer but he could not play. These stories were also used for the research of the film. Singh did not disclose that he was preparing for a role in film to his coach See more »
A lower caste boxer struggles to keep up his career against different odds.
So.... Anurag Kashyap after a decent film on a serial killer washed his hands for a film(told to be inspired by true events) related with street boxing in the alleys of UP.
The film delivers as we all expect from Kashyap's film....brilliant performance,excellent direction and able screenplay.Remember,vineet kumar singh from ugly..he is the main character playing the street boxer shravan singh here.In his role he is more than perfect in his role...well adjectives will be short to describe his performance...he gets under the skin role so well that no one will be able to pick out a signle fault.His body transformation for this film is really inspiring.Jimmy Shergill was excellent in his role as Bhagwan Das mishra..the local goon leader and the villian..his body language and local accent was perfect.Zoya Hussein playing the role of a mute niece to shergill shines in her debut performance.Ravi kishan was also good....but the storyline was bit extended and fails to match the heights of gangs of wasseypur,Gullal...his previous masterpieces but this cinema is just short of achieving a classic tag because it slightly lacks kashyap's signature direction style which is unique.The gripping pace of the film will hold you to the seat but last 15-20mins seems to be forcefully extended.
The songs of the film "paintra","Bohot hua samman" nicely fits into the film....this is rare type of sports drama made in bollywood with so much reality involved and must deserve a standing ovation for all the efforts the entire unit has made to create this film...9.2/10......
