Storyline

It is a story of 4 friends - Dev, Gaurav, Aditya & Devi. The cast is young & fresh. They are at the cusp of their lives - The college has just about finished, but career path is yet to be set. These are the last few days of true freedom that we have all gone through, and still cherish. These friends are conscientious, they will have fun but would never cross the boundaries - They all have dreams and expectations from life, but as they say - man proposes, god disposes. Their fun filled and care free life comes to an abrupt halt, when they are faced with an extremely corrupt and seemingly fearless Police Officer. This puts a series of events in motion which will test their friendship and characters - their life becomes 'Fugly'. Written by Anonymous

FUGLY : Neither Shaken Nor Stirred
16 June 2014 | by ahwaan_padheeSee all my reviews

Watching F*UGLY evokes a strong sense of deja vu, for its premise so similar to the 2011 dark thriller,Shaitaan.And in what I could best interpret, the title 'neatly' sums up as Friends-in-an-Ugly situation.Kabir Sadanand's directorial debut tells the story of four youngsters ,at the cusp of their lives ,whose lives come to an

abrupt halt for one wrongdoing.This triggers a series of events,putting their friendship into test.

New Delhi- The Crime capital and the hidden nexus between corrupt cops,wily politicians and administrators.It forms the canvas for Kabir's plot.Four friends - Dev(Mohit Marwah),Gaurav(Vijendar Singh),Devi(Kyra Advani) and Adi(Arfi Lamba) quite liberal(or should I say 'Communist' musketeers)in their thinking are out of their college and about to kick-start their careers.An attempt to bring a lecherous grocer to task who has abused Devi goes awry when the foursome encounter the irreverent cop, SHO Chautala(Jimmy Shergill, in a deliciously menacing avatar).Chautala, the evil incarnate , demands an unreasonably hefty sum from them in return and this leads to unforeseen tragedy and ultimately redemption.

To be fair, Fugly is a well-intention-ed thought,which doesn't translate into an edgy thriller.Blame it on the shoddy writing, the narrative loses steam soon after the entry of Chautala who works as the film's Trump card sans the gratuitous sloka chants.Starting off with the breath-taking locales of Ladakh, it soon implodes its way to debauched politicians, corrupt elements, under-house parties and even gay prostitution.Kabir provides a glimpse of the city's dark realities, but doesn't conjure them up and the outcome is highly inconsistent.As a conventional twist to the plot, one of the protagonists immolates himself in front of India Gate to symbolize the rise of conscientious nationalism.Let the truth prevail !

As far as the performances go,the quartet of the newcomers is not particularly bad but could have done better.Its Vijendar who is convincing as he plays a wannabe boxer and has to speak with Harvanvi accent,which he is so much in real life.Cast in a negative role, Jimmy Shergill is the virtual propellant of the film's vehicle. But just like an engine which runs out of fuel,Fugly gets deprived of a stirring drama.
