Its checkmate time with 'Pawn Sacrifice' on MN+ on last day of 2016

MUMBAI: Times Network’s premium HD English movie channel MN+ is to premiere the biographical drama film Pawn Sacrifice 31 December at 1 pm with a repeat telecast at 9 pm.

The inspiring movie tells the story of the first American world chess champion Bobby Fisher and his biggest championship battle at the height of the Cold War.

Directed by Edward Zwick, the movie is a gritty nail-biting drama that portrays the story of a genius who took the chess world by storm in the second half of the twentieth century.
Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, Pawn Sacrifice narrates the tale of the greatest chess match of all time between Russian Grandmaster Boris Spassky played by Liev Schreiber and Fischer played by Tobey Maguire.

Fischer not only fights the Soviet player, but also battles with his inner demons as he finds himself caught between two superpowers with national glory on the line.
The film draws parallels between sport and politics as the world championship match is a reflection of the simmering political tensions between the United States and Russia.

While chess is an alienating game, the film makes for compelling viewing as it poignantly illustrates the world of chess in a never before seen manner.
