The film portrays the kidnapping of a little girl of 10, who is out with her father for the day. Her parents are divorced and her stepfather (a cop) steps in for the investigation. The suicidal mother has an ax to grind with both her ex-husband and her current husband. As the investigation proceeds, the characters are placed in sordid scenarios that reveal their unsavory sides; the mind games between the both the fathers in particular lend the procedural its most gripping drama as everyone else is getting greedy and ugly not caring about the kidnapped girl.

The film's title Ugly refers to ugliness of human's life where we try to upstage each other. See more »
When Rahul is given 50 lakhs by the police to hand to the kidnapper, the amount should have been 20 lakhs instead. A few scenes before we see the police catching Shalini's brother who had actually demanded the 50 lakhs. So, that would leave the police with the phone call (by Rakhee) the source of the real kidnapper. And Rakhee had actually demanded 20 lakhs, not 50. See more »
A brilliantly scripted, extraordinary directed & perfectly executed movie.
The year 2014 has its last release on its last Friday, named Ugly, a suspense thriller movie by Anurag Kashyap. He is known for his dramatic, unique, bold and dark flicks. I have mostly seen all his films, but, however this film is very different and so much dark. In trailer, we can conclude the storyline of Ugly. A girl is missing from the market, whose parents are not staying together. She lives with her mom and her step father. Everyone except this girl has dark sides, dark past. So when the girl got missing the girl's step father who is an IPS, starts finding her among her relatives. The story is very very fast, no one can move their eyes from the screen not a single second. Will the girl be found ? Who kidnapped her - her father, mother or anyone else? In the end, you will get the answer. & I'm sure, the answer will be so disturbing for all of you. As per my experience, you can not able to stand up instantly after the end. Ronit Roy as an IPS & as a step-father & as a woman's second husband - in all three shades, he is just outstanding. His expressions when he shows his anger are too good. Rahul Bhat is an impressive actor, he plays the lead role brilliantly. Dark shades under his eyes and beard face look describes the dedication from him towards his role. Tejaswini perfectly suits in her role. Vinit Singh is as usual fantastic. Surveen Chawala is good. Others are also good. I have to mention an actor, who plays the role of DCP Gupta, Abir Goswami. He is just fabulous in his role. The 4-5 minutes scene where Rahul and Vinit explain the incident in the police station, is just hilarious. I couldn't control myself & just laughing. OMG! What a scene! This scene deserves 5/5 from my side. Anurag Kashyap again proved that he is the king of making dark and period films. His direction as well as writing is very sharp. Screenplay, dialogues, background music - everything is extraordinary. Specially that music when the police is catching the man dancing in underwear. So, brilliantly scripted, extraordinary directed & perfectly executed film Ugly deserves 5*/5*. But, this film is not for family audiences or those who can't see Ugly things.
