It’s all about four friends, it’s all about cleaning up society of social evils like corruption, asking the youth to start a revolution and it’s Rang De Basanti reprised; well we are talking about Karan Johar’s Ungli.
Ungli is all about Abhay (Randeep Hooda), Maya (Kangana Ranaut), Goti (Neil Bhoopalam) and Kalim (Angad Bedi) who seem like regular people with normal jobs, but as night descends they turn into super heroes doing ungli to those who wrong the common man.
The police goes berserk and the Police Commissioner (Raza Murad) assigns the task to Inspector Kale (Sanjay Dutt) who in turn assigns the task to an undercover police officer, Inspector Nikhil (Emraan Hashmi), who is sort of a misfit in the police force.
As expected Nikhil gains the trust of the four friends but then is in two minds; should he put them behind bars or continue with them in their noble task.
Ungli is Rang De Basanti part two. Rensil D’silva who wrote Rang De Basanti tries hard to create the same magic but with a shoddy second half the film just falls flat.
If Ungli has an entertaining first half then it has a cursed second half that gets unbearable and will force you to take breaks every ten minutes.
Very unlike Karan Johar, the music of the film is way below average and at times one feels like asking the theater guys to fast forward the songs as they get unbearable.
Ungli‘s biggest issue is that it tries to camouflage itself as an entertainer under the pretext of delivering a social message.
However the movie has two highs; one being Shraddha Kapoor’s Dance Basanti item song and second being Sanjay Dutt. The rest of the film is just a desperate attempt to re-create a cult film like Rang De Basanti.
Best wait for this one to come on television or if you so want to see a film then there is always Happy New Year to fall back on.
