Storyline

We have all heard of soft romantic comic love stories. Now get set for a love story with a punch, a thud and some serious arm twisting thrown in with zero bedside manners. Ugly aur Pagli. It is the story of Kabir, a carefree guy who has been studying engineering for the last 10 years now, whose life goes for a sixer when he meets the quirky and kinky Kuhu. Kabir always wanted a girl to love and to make love but he never in his wildest dreams thought he would encounter a girl who could make him dance around circles, run semi naked, ride cycles without seats, wear high heeled ladies shoes... Oh trust us it gets worse. But the funny part is they actually fall in love with each other and what we get is one of the quirkiest love stories of the year. Written by Pritish Nandy Communications

Truly "Ugly aur Pagli" movie
15 September 2008 | by akaashvcSee all my reviews

What were the makers of this movie thinking. They thought they could give an Indian touch to the Korean original "Yeopgijeogin Geunyeo" which is a masterpiece by itself. Though I do not understand Korean, I watched the Korean version (with English subtitles) and was touched by every moment in it. A friend of mine suggested this movie and I thought it must be some kind of Korean comedy (with animated expressions). But the end result was totally different. It turned out to be a heart rendering, natural comedy with touching moments and a warm ending. Haven't seen the Hollywood version "My Sassy Girl" but the original is special and probably no remake could recreate the magic of the movie. Ugly aur Pagli is an utter failure in an attempt to do so. Instead the comedy is slapstick and makes no sense in the Indian context. Ranvir has been wasted here and Malika should stick to what she does best (which is not acting). Music has nothing to it, except for probably "Main Talli Ho Gayi". Overall the movie makes a mockery of the original and has nothing much to take back from it.
