Movie trailers

Divine and Nucleya team up for heartland hip-hop in ‘Paintra’ from ‘Mukkabaaz’

Anurag Kashyap’s action drama will be released on January 12 , 2018.

The makers of Anurag Kashyap’s new film Mukkabaaz have released the video for its first single, Paintra, which also doubles up as the trailer. The movie stars Vineet Kumar Singh, previously seen in Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur and Ugly (2014), and newcomer Zoya Hussain. Co-produced by Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Production and Phantom Films, Mukkabaaz will be released on January 12, 2018.

Produced by homegrown EDM sensation Nucleya and sung by Mumbai rapper Divine, Paintra is the motivational track in sports films that became a staple of the genre thanks to Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger from Rocky III (1982). However, while such songs mostly belong to the rock genre, Mukkabaaz’s Paintra has gone for EDM-laced hip-hop.

The video for Paintra lays down the plotline and its chief characters in under three minutes: Low-caste boxer Shravan Kumar (Singh) falls for Sunaina Mishra (Hussain), the niece of local strongman Bhagwan Bas Mishra (Jimmy Shergill). When Bhagwan Das and his men gang up against Shravan Kumar, the pugilist, trained and motivated by his coach Sanjay Kumar (Ravi Kishen), takes on the establishment to prove his worth.

Paintra, written by Vineet Kumar Singh, is held together by Nucleya’s characteristic blend of Indian percussion and EDM. Kishen’s dialogue underlines Shravan Kumar’s fight against his overlords.

Though Divine and Nucleya have produced the film’s lead single, newcomer Rachita Arora is in charge of the soundtrack.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
