UGLY AUR PAGLI - An experiment on a borrowed thesis. (Movie Review By Bobby Sing)

09 Aug, 2008 | Movie Reviews / 2008 Releases

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 loosly 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 doesnt 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 pricy and pretends to be the top most actress. She is surely the most sought after actress in one sense but strangley 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.
Rating : 1 / 5
