Respected Adarniya UNGLI

Someone probably watched the two shows ‘Office office’ and ‘CID’ ┬áback to back in a not so sober state to have mixed it up to make a half- witted movie of some genre that I cannot comprehend as of now.

Five absolutely random people picked up in a hurry to quickly form a group, that pretends to act like a team of vigilantes- that’s the UNGLI gang for you. The story begins with an absence of any useful introduction of the characters. They are just thrown at your face so that they can quickly begin the vacuous tasks to fight against the corrupt system. The problems as well as the solutions are so simplistic that you don’t even see the need of five people for such petty implementations of some praisable ideas. Fighting against corruption is one thing that should not fail with the Indian audiences if the right buttons are pressed. But sadly this is one is a very TV soap version of Rang De Basanti, that too gone wrong!

There is a lot of dialogue- baazi in the movie that might provoke some slow claps if cheesy is your style. One of my favorites being ‘Aaansu se sirf Whisky dilute hoti hai sir’. Randeep Hooda does justice to his role of a TV journalist, Kangana is a wasted talent in the group and there are two other kids who look like the ‘kachha nimbu’s of the gang.

The only powerful UNGLI in the movie is that of Emraan Hashmi’s. He is the only man who is able to emote and justify the plot which is otherwise all over the place. You feel lost and lazy while watching the movie because there are too many things that have been just touched upon and left for you to contemplate. For e.g, we don’t know how and why these guys are such close buddies, or why did they need such rigorous physical training even before inception of the UNGLI gang. The forced romantic angle between Emraan and Kangana is as unnecessary as Randeep Hooda’s clone (Neel Bhoopalam).

Good thing is that the pace is not a drag and it gets over before it gets annoying. Music is restricted to Dance Basanti, and that too looks very tasteless on the big screen. There are too many things gone wrong for one to point out, but overall it is a one time watch for all the Hashmi fans & for those who don’t trust my reviews yet :p
