Ugly aur Pagli, movie review

Get set for one of the quirkiest love stories of the year! Ugly aur Pagli movie review…

Ugly Aur Pagli is about Kabir (Ranvir Shorey) who is a happy go lucky, laid back guy who takes life at his own sweet pace. How else then can one describe such a character who he has been doing his engineering since the past 10 years.

Seeing other couples around him, he desires to have a girl to love…

It is also about Kuhu (Mallika Sherawat).

Never had Kabir imagined that his life would go for a sixer until he meets the quirky and kinky Kuhu. He had always longing for a girl to love but he never in his wildest dreams thought he would encounter a girl who could make him dance around circles, run semi naked, ride cycles without seats, wear high heeled ladies shoes…

Kabir who has literally been on slumber suddenly finds himself in the middle of a roller coaster ride wherein he has to come up with some of the most ridiculous situations, with the arrival of Kuhu in his life.

This dynamic, aggressive and cranky girl would not stop at doing the weirdest things in life. This scares the hell out of Kabir and the more he wants to get away from her, the more close she gets to him.

Soon, Kabir realizes that he has fallen in love with this sizzling girl, but does not have enough courage to express his feelings. But Kuhu suddenly disappears and ends up in Kolkata which sets Kabir on a locating mission. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.

Mallika Sherawat perfect portrays the wild and whacky shades and surprisingly, is even better in the emotional scenes. Ranvir Shorey’s advantage is that he isn’t the chocolate faced guy. His boy next door looks and his mastery in acting is amazing. Tinnu Anand and Sushmita Mukherjee look worn-out. Zeenat Aman who is almost not visible, could have chosen a better film for her comeback. It has the catchy song “Main Talli Ho Gayi” from music director Anu Malik.

Ugly aur Pagli has an interesting concept in the first half, especially how their paths meet. It is a disappointment in the latter half where it becomes repetitive.
