Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has unveiled the first set of film titles premiering in the Gala and Special Presentations programmes in this year’s edition of the fest. Three Indian films will have there world premiere at Toronto. All the three films are part of Special Presentations.

Anurag Kashyap’s latest film Mukkebaaz is titled The Brawler for the fest edition. The 145-min long film is about a lower caste boxer struggling to make his mark on the boxing world. The film stars Vineet Singh in the lead role.

Hansal Mehta’s Omerta recounts the story of infamous British-born terrorist Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, who kidnapped and murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in 2002. It stars Raj Kummar Rao in the lead and is 96 minutes long.

The third one is Bornilla Chatterjee’s The Hungry. It relocates Shakespeare’s bloody tragedy Titus Andronicus to modern-day India, where corruption, greed, and revenge run rampant at an extravagant wedding.

    Hi, where can I see the trailer for this film -Mukkabaaz.
    I am a big fan you last movie Bombay Velvet – ahead of its time.
    Needs to be re-release in the future.

    • Ajitesh Pathak says:

      There is no trailer available yet for this movie.

      I saw the movie at the TIFF and found it to be nothing to write home about. Most un-Anurag Kashyap like Anurag Kashyap movie. Mind you I didn’t like Bombay Velvet either.

      I loved Kashyap’s all other movies except Ugly and That girl in Yellow Boots.
