CAST & CREW
Plot: Ungli begins with a scene in which an old man and his daughter are mistreated in a government office and are forced to bribe the officials. This incident makes four friends Randeep Hooda, Kangana Ranaut, Angad Bedi and Neil Bhoopalam to start a gang against corruption. This gang is called as Ungli. The gang disguises themselves targets corrupt people and teaches them live lessons in an unusual way. Sanjay Dutt, a police officer, is assigned by the department to catch the Ungli gang. However, he does not succeed in catching the friends. Emraan Hashmi, a lower level police officer, is sent by Sanjay Dutt, to be a part of the gang as an undercover agent. Emraan realizes that the gang is not doing any wrong deeds. He is stuck in a situation in which he has to choose between the gang and the police department. Whom does he choose? Watch this original film to know more.
Analysis: The film promotes anarchism in an unconventional way. The theme of the movie is a usual one, and Rensil D’Silva could have taken it in a different and unusual way. The director has depicted all his frustration towards the society in this film. The storyline is so serious, but the film lacks that momentum. The film has been produced by Karan Johar, which comes as a surprise since it does not have a star-studded cast or a romantic love story.
Star Performances: The film is an upturn for Sanjay Dutt, and his role is very powerful. Randeep Hooda steals the show and grabs attention. Editing by Deepa Bhatia is distinct and has to be appreciated. Cinematography by Hemant Chaturvedi is well defined. Thumbs up to Milap Zaveri for writing dialogues that will click very well with the current scenario and generation.
What's There? The first half is interesting and makes the audience curious. The songs ‘Ungli theme’ and ‘Dance Basanti’ in which Shraddha Kapoor has tapped her feet are enjoyable.
What's Not There? The way the cast has acted is immature and not convincing. The screenplay and the script are sometimes infantile.
Verdict: Old wine in a new bottle.
