An uninterestingly executed weird attempt wasting a socially relevant subject.
5 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

The first reaction one has in mind after watching UNGLI is that the film must have been in the making for a long time with certain production issues, as it talks about an already overused theme quite shabbily and has a very uninterestingly executed progression without any great involvement of its writer and director. Moreover it has all cameo kind of appearances of many known names who have nothing great to do in their limited scenes and thus make no impact whatsoever on the viewers in less than two hours of duration including few mediocre songs.

Stating its only merits, UNGLI begins well with a hard hitting realistic scene and then has an innovative animated title sequence featuring a song calling for social awakening through 'A Respected Aadarniye Ungli'. It comes to the point in the first 10 minutes only and therefore raises your expectations with such quick developments on the screen wasting no time on introductions. However a poor item song with a guest appearance of Shraddha Kapoor pulls the film down and then it fails to pick up any further in the subsequent reels offering a pretty stale, outdated and illogical project taking a lot for granted. A love angle (with Neha Dhupia) is inserted in its storyline just for the sake of it as usual and nothing works in the favour of this weak attempt made despite all the good intentions of its socially relevant subject suggesting a revolutionary solution taking the law in hands to fight with corruption.

With an interval at just 55 minutes and a laughable sequence in its climax along with few unwanted songs, UNGLI gives you nothing as compared to the expectations raised in the beginning and one keeps wondering why actors such as Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda, Kangna Ranaut, Mahesh Manjrekar and Sanjay Dutt said yes to the film to play all under-developed characters in only few scenes appearances full of many clichéd moments. The background score & editing tries its best to give the movie some pace. But nothing is successful in hiding the truth that the film had been in the making for the last two years and most probably had gone through many changes and re-touchings too, resulting in a complete 'no-show' in the end to say it all.

So try to avoid UNGLI this week since its nothing but another of those mistakes of a big production house made out of their sheer over- confidence using an in-house team/director trying to take advantage of the present questionable social conditions prevalent in the country.
