Ungli Hindi Movie Reviews

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Bollywood Hungama | Review By -Hungama Network Rating-5
Bollywood has witnessed many a theme (read 'genre') of films ever since its inception. Even though there have been many repeated themes that we get to see almost every week, only a few films remain fresh in our memories. There have been many elements that form the crux of any film.

  •  CNN IBN | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-4
The only bits that do work in Ungli are the seemingly unscripted lighter moments between the friends, and of course the scenes in which everyone from political bullies to sadistic auto-rickshaw drivers are brought to task in imaginative ways. The film's overarching theme

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-5
This story has its heart in the right place, mind all over the place, and finger on the wrong pulse. 'Ungli' is socially relevant, earnest in delivering a strong message, albeit, the weak execution doesn't support the larger intent. Abhay (Randeep) a crime journalist, Maya (Kangana) a medical intern

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Soumya Srivastava Rating-4
We love paradoxes, here’s one for you: Ungli is like Rang De Basanti, except it so totally isn’t. Like the 2006 superhit, here too his a force of young vigilantes born in the swamp of dirty corruption and evil widespread in the society. They too try to wipe the city clean of the snivelling and greedy

  •  India Today | Review By -Rohit Khilnani Rating-3
Ungli is directed by Rensil D'Silva who is famous for his dud Kurbaan (2009). This time he actually tries to make something different. Ungli is a story of a group of people from different walks of life who get together to fight corruption. It's the usual aam aadmi standing up against the corrupt system.

  •  Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-6
The premise of 'Ungli' is mighty interesting. A bunch of boys and a girl decide to form a group to terrorise the law breaking individuals, after their trainer ends up in hospital because of a spoilt rich brat. The good looking gang consisting of Maya (Kangna Ranaut), an intern at a hospital

  •  Rediff | Review By -Prasanna D Zore Rating-4
Director Rensil D’Silva and dialogue writer Milap Zaveri team up to dish out an inane thriller that lacks originality as well as a solid plot. Ungli is about four friends -- Abhay (Randeep Hooda), Maya (Kangna Ranaut), Kaleem (Angad Bedi) and Gautam alias Goti (Neil Bhoopalam)

  •  NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-3
The central premise of Ungli is as unoriginal as they come: a gang of four vigilantes sets out to name, shame and tame the corrupt in the city of Mumbai after one of their own is battered in a case of road rage. In a state of panic, the police establishment deputes an upright and headstrong

  •  Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-1
A group of masked vigilantes calls itself the Ungli Gang, because its objective is to ungal karo (a colloquialism for “fingering”) the corrupt. Fixing the bad guys can be so much fun, and so cathartic if the right buttons are pressed. Ungli is empty, and left me collecting my jaw from the floor

  •  The W14 | Review By -Mayank Shekhar Rating-3
I’m sure you’ve seen videos or even film promos on TV where the prominently pointed middle finger gets blurred on the screen. It’s as if to protect children from learning a new sign language, we’re telling them that the middle finger doesn’t actually exist in the human body!

  •  DNA | Review By -Tushar Joshi Rating-5
There are sparks of some good creative writing in the first half, especially the portions where we get to see the team punish the corrupt guys and find innovative ways of taping them and sharing the videos with media. Emraan stands out in the cast playing Nikhil with utmost honesty.

  •  Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-5
If you are expecting Ungli, directed by Rensil D’Silva, to be as crackling as the vigilante film A Wednesday (starring the supremely talented Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher) or as thought-provoking as Rang De Basanti, then you are knocking at the wrong door. Ungli, led by Randeep Hooda

  •  Masala.com | Review By -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-5
So what’s the difference between corruption in real life and corruption in Hindi films? In Hindi films, it takes a Kangana Ranaut and her perfect figure, a kissing Emraan Hashmi, a stud Randeep Hooda and a Shraddha Kapoor in a guest appearance, also known as an item number

  •  Daily Bhaskar | Rating-6
Ungli has an interesting story backed by strong acting performances. Youth and corruption seem to have become the most sellable combo for both politicians and filmmakers. In the last decade, we have seen a series of films on the issue. Ungly is yet another film on the subject with yet

  •  Bollywood Life | Review By -Subramanian Harikumar Rating-5
When Batman, a masked crusader who saves the city from villains at night, meets Rang De Basanti, a film about a bunch of kids becoming rebels by turn of events, we get Rensil D’Silva’s Ungli. Starring an ensemble cast of Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda, Kangana Ranaut, Sanjay Dutt

  •  Koimoi | Review By -Mohar Basu Rating-7
Coming from the writer of Rang De Basanti, 24 and Kurbaan, we surely know Rensil’s space is nothing like the Dharma framework. He is an intelligent writer who holds his script holy and with Ungli he has done the same. A group of four friends, are a social group who take up issues close

  •  Glamsham | Review By -Martin D'Souza Rating-6
Ungli scores on two counts; for its social message and underplayed performances. And that's surprising for a plot so wafer thin. Even Sanjay Dutt who plays ACP Kali is a treat. Emraan Hashmi and Randeep Hooda both tone down their penchant for overplaying their characters.

  •  India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-3
Things went terribly wrong during the making of Ungli. Kangna Ranaut lost interest during the making of the film so much so you'd think she wasn't in it. Angad Bedi got so angry that he began to look like Incredible Hulk. Randeep Hooda was irritated and just wanted to shush everybody.

  •  Zee News | Review By -Ritika Handoo Rating-5
Welcome to the world of 70mm screens. It is the la-la land where anything and everything is possible. There isn't a 'no' certainly in filmy dictionary. Well, that said, filmmaker Rensil D'Silva's 'Ungli' is as suggestive as its title. The movie reminds you of many instances which might have

  •  Filmi Beat | Review By -Suparno Rating-4
The multi-starrer Bollywood movie Ungli starring Emraan Hashmi among others which created considerable hype for the star cast and the interesting plot has released today. Directed by Renzil D'Silva, the movie Ungli features Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda, Sanjay Dutt, Kangana Ranaut

  •  Indiaglitz | Review By -Vishal Verma Rating-4
Sad.. It’s so bad. A crappy instant noodle (on availability of actors date) type of cinema that continuously has unconvincing, irrational events orchestrated by the writer director Renzil D'Silva (brilliant when good - Rang De Basanti as writer) and awful when bad both as writer

  •  Sify | Review By -Sonia Chopra Rating-4
The issue the film takes up is pertinent and that needs to be applauded. Even the solution that of common people breaking the law to teach the corrupt and criminal a lesson had potential for a rousing story. But wheres the point, if the execution doesnt convince you of either

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Kusumita Das Rating-6
If Bollywood were a classroom then Ungli and its team would be those backbenchers, the bunch of troublemakers who always have a trick or two up their sleeve. They are smart, but not the insufferable know-it-alls nor are they willing to play by the average formulae.

  •  Now Running | Review By -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-4
It has been close to nine years since Rang De Basanti swept the nation. It did get it share of rebukes, but that did not stop it from attaining a cult status. A group of friends tired of the corruption around decides to make a statement. Their voice not only reached out, their emotions registered.

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Jaanam Dewan Rating-7
Ungli reveals how corruption is rampant throughout the city and can be found at every level of government. In case you haven’t guessed already, the title of the movie is a big "middle finger" to the fraudulent system. If you have ever been pushed around by government officials or have

  •  Mumbai Mirror | Review By -Rahul Desai Rating-4
Writing a contemporary tale about vigilante justice isn't limited to its physical form; the perpetrators could be college kids (Rang De Basanti), fed-up citizens (A Wednesday) or even glorified superheroes (Defendor). It revolves around trying to ascertain real dominoeffect consequences

  •  Deccan Herald | Review By -Angel Rani Rating-2
Four vigilantes roam about Mumbai streets in masks. They break the law to nail the corrupt. They also give the system the finger at regular intervals. And when they aren’t raising their third digit, here’s what the gang does: Randeep Hooda is a crime reporter (who chases fellow reporter
