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

An experiment on a borrowed thesis.
13 August 2008 | by bobbysingSee all my reviews

Pritish Nandy Productions comes with another experimental movie after its "Pyar Ke Side Effects". But this time the experiment has been done on a borrowed thesis. The film is a loosely inspired from a korean movie "Yeopgijeogin Geunyeo" or "My Sassy Girl" (2001) which was then remade in English in 2008.

The story – no there is no story but it's a collection of anecdotes about the meetings between a boy and a girl. Its how the boy is rudely shaken and ill treated by her girl friend and then he keeps on trying to cope up with this strange relationship. The director couldn't catch the right spirit of the movie with no particular scene worth talking about.

Ranvir Shorey underplays his role but as he doest get any support from the script department therefore fails to impress his fans. He gets very few funny scenes to satisfy the viewer. On the other hand Mallika Sherawat acts pricey and pretends to be the top most actress. She is surely the most sought after actress in one sense but strangely her enigma failed to bring in the crowd this time.

Musically film has very less to register with one song becoming famous due to its cheap lyrics, "Main Talli Ho Gayi". Here Poetry takes the back seat once again in recent times. In today's competitive world of young music directors Anu Malik will have to rediscover himself once again.

The promos were innovatively planned with good tag lines but the movie is another example of good promotion but bad content. Seeing some recent flicks its time the makers should concentrate more on the movie and its ingredients rather than on its promotional tactics. No doubt, good promotion is a must but you should not fool the audiences with wrong and misleading promos.
