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.Written by
In the beginning of the movie when Rahul goes to pick up his daughter, he talks about how Chhabra, his casting director always calls him on Saturdays. 'Mukesh Chhabra' qv is actually the casting director of the movie. 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 »
Ugly is one of the finest works from Anurag Kashyap. It continues to depict what he started with Last Train to Mahakali...and later with Paanch... - his love (and hate) for the dark side of human mind.
Ugly at its heart is a racy thriller, intriguing, loaded with dark humor and real, gray characters, as unpredictable as only humans can be. Technically its brilliant. And its as close as you can get to original in Bollywood world.
It keeps you glued to the screen for 130 min and leaves you numb when the show is over.
P.S. Definitely not for the lovers of Dhoom-3, Kick and P-K genre, who like their cinema light, escapist and with popcorn.
