“Ugly” released a while back, and if you still haven’t caught up with watching the movie, you need to do so asap and here’s why.
To start off with, the plot is gripping. An estranged father leaves her child in the car alone for a few minutes only to come back and find her missing. No one knows where she went or what happened. We just know she’s gone. What follows is an intense journey, full of despair to find the little girl. The movie, unlike Anurag Kashyap’s previous ones, is relatively low on violence but high on nature of humans and their relationships in today’s times.
“Ugly” is indeed ugly. It’s uncomfortable looking into the kind of people we have become today. The human greed and selfishness is unsettling no doubt. But that is Ugly for you. Dark, real and unapologetic about it!
The cast is fantastic and all actors are excellent in their respective roles. Kudos to Anurag Kashyap for using each actor’s strength to full potential!
While “PK” did steal the show during Christmas season, “Ugly” definitely deserves a watch.
