Storyline

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.

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Deeply moving film, Anurag kashyap's best till date...
26 December 2014 | by sbrjitenSee all my reviews

Ugly, undoubtedly the best movie of Anurag kashyap till date, he manages to keep the suspense alive and bring across crucial twists. Ronit Roy steals the show with his best performance and all the cast especially, Rahul bhatt and Vineet kumar did great job. This is about how we tend to lose greater things in life because we are too stuck on our own perceptions. Directed in a very realistic way, I didn't find any flaws in this movie, everything is perfectly crafted in Kashyap style with no violence or gang-fights. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of dark thrillers, I am sure you wont get disappointed with Ugly though the movie is not at all ugly, in fact its a beautiful film with good message to society. I give it 10/10.
