Anurag Kashyap’s Ugly that has been on way to create big buzz in the media has finally landed up. The movie sees D-Day today. Well, Ugly might not be a gift for Christmas, but the ones who want to see a good cinema, this film is the best treat. A suspense thriller, the film makes you glued to the screens from the opening reels till the end and that is the best quality of the good storyteller Anurag Kashyap.

The film lets us know the true human psyche in today’s era. It is undoubtedly an eye-opener. Ugly’s characters live horrid life due to the negativity they have in their minds.

Ugly talks about a little girl who is kidnapped from her father’s car and then the search for the little one starts.

Shailini (Tejaswani Kolhapure) is a housewife. She is the better half of a police cop Shoumik Bose (Ronot Roy) who forces her to stay home. She is completely disturbed mentally due to her husband and often tries attempting suicide. But her daughter Kali stops her. One day Kali meets her estranged father (her mother’s ex-husband played by Rahul Bhatt). He leaves her alone in the car. The girl is then kidnapped. Now the search and the blame game start from there onwards.

Anurag Kashyap writes an attention-grabbing story. Although, there is no novelty in the subject, but what matters the most is the gripping aspects that gets the viewers fixed along with the proceedings. There are few faults in the narrative, but they are ignorable since the overall outcome is awesome. Direction by Anurag Kashyap is simply capturing, as mentioned in the previous lines that he is a brilliant storyteller and he has proved the same in this film as well. Editing is fine. Cinematography is fabulous. Music is average.

Ronit Roy is simply brilliant. Tejaswani Kolhapuri is excellent. Rahul Bhatt delivers his part aptly. Sureen Chawla is fine. Anishikaa Sirivastava does fabulous job as Kali. Others too go fine with their roles.


Final Verdict:

On the whole, Ugly is a gripping and attention-grabbing movie that gets you focused on screen from start to end.
