Ugly Hindi Movie Review

Rajeev Masand didn’t gave a review for this movie but called this 3rd best movie of 2014 
Ratings:4/5 Review By:  Meena Iyer  Site:Times Of India (TOI)

Writer-director Anurag Kashyap is in top form in this suspense thriller that has you by the b…ls from the start. While the pace does dip in the second half, what makes Ugly tick is the searing honesty with which it is told. It’s not for the faint-hearted, but for those who are willing to let the morally decrepit live.

Ugly is about a bunch of perverse people fishing in troubled waters as the mystery of the missing girl deepens. The screenplay and the directorial methods are direct and realistic. Ugly works best when it focuses on the depression-afflicted woman who contemplates different ways of committing suicide. This may not be Anurag Kashyap’s best film, but it is infinitely and indescribably better than all the muck that mainstream Bollywood passed off for entertainment this year.

Ugly is a tale of torment, masterfully woven around the universally urgent trigger of a disappearing minor — and yet where, in the larger scheme of things, that kidnapping itself becomes, I daresay, a minor detail. Genius.

‘Ugly’ takes that darkness to an extreme, even more so that his first, unreleased ‘Paanch’: a little girl goes missing, and what happens subsequently (and consequently) does not just flow from the fear and anguish that result from the disappearance, but also from anger and old resentment and twisted feelings and present torment. Kashyap’s point is to show up the ugliness that all humans have within them, that no one is innocent. But the plot starts to get a little too busy and begins to shoot off here and there.

A film like UGLY is not meant for the wide section of Indian audience that patronizes fun, entertaining escapist cinema. When the reality is so ugly for them why would they want to spend money on buying a ticket for UGLY. On the whole, technically brilliant with some wonderful performances, UGLY strictly caters to a niche audience. Moreover the choice of releasing it during a festive period isn’t a great idea either. Watch it if you are an Anurag Kashyap fan, else avoid!

Watch the movie for brilliance and for its simple, touching and mind-blowing messaage. Watch it for Ronit Roy, Rahul Bhatt and Vineet Kumar Singh. Do not watch the film if you do not like being subjected to the dark and intense feelings of guilt, realisation and loss. Skip the movie if blood and shootouts is all you want to see in an Anurag Kashyap venture.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:  Rahul Desai  Site:Mumbai Mirror

This isn’t an easy film to watch, and not each of its 127 minutes is entirely purposeful. Everyone is an antagonist; there’s not a moment when they are not driven by oppression and greed. Look closely enough, and the mystery is offered on a platter early on, when we’re still figuring out who is who. This isn’t exactly a whodunit, but more of a tragic whydunit—a cracked mirror held up to reflect the trappings of our fractured society. I disliked what I saw, and I dislike thinking or even writing about its familiar environment. And this vile aftertaste is perhaps Mr. Kashyap’s most significant achievement.

Ugly is the last release of 2014 but qualifies to be one of the best films of the year.Hirani’s PK may be the flavor of the season with a positive social message but even Kashyap’s Ugly gives you a reality check and hence should not be missed.

‘Ugly’ takes steep turns that will leave you confused as to who to root for in the end. The ending is a haunting final shot, which pummels the moral centre of the movie. The film begins and ends with intentional violence which simply accentuates the ugliness instead of serving as a shock-value.

  1. Ugly is one of the darkest, hard-hitting, gritty thrillers to have hit Indian Screens in the recent times which manages to keep you glued to your seats till the end credits roll out. This is a must watch for those who have a penchant for dark, cynical thrillers but mind you it is not cut out for weak hearted and children below eighteen. For my detailed review, please visit…………http://rohitmoviereview.blogspot.in/

  2. Taran is an idiot i saw film and loved it. Every character in a film speaks volumes 2/3 characters are like A start.

    Remove Taran adarsh, and people who review film should stop telling stories they kill the whole suspense of audience, i stopped reading reviews and never see review or read because they kind of kill my suspense and thrill of movie which i get when i see frames on screen

  3. though film has some brilliant performances I think the way it was ended was very pathetic. I didn't find it really great job of a director (anurag kashyap).IF Directors like him making such a depressing movies who gonna watch such shit by spending 200+ bucks. take note please.

  4. Dude shit is what u watch and like? If tarantino can do it, scorcesse can do it, they get accolades. Why can't he? Just because you are too dumb to see his vision stop labeling the movie as depressive and shit. What do you want in a movie same watered down, overacted, crap without a plot like salman and srk movies? Go and watch HNY and shut up …. TAKE NOTE …GROW UP

  5. Simply outstanding movie. Hats off to Anurag kashyap. Sad that such brilliant movies dont perform well. but this definitely deserved my hard earned money.
