Ugly Aur Pagli is a wee bit slap-happy and a little bit slapstick film starring Ranvir Shorey and Mallika Sherawat.It is directed by Sachin Khot and produced by Pritish Nandy.It is about Kuhu (Mallika Sherawat) and Kabir (Ranvir Shorey).Kuhu appears to be overpowering Kabir and has a habit of slapping him.The movie is about love in a wicked style.But overall it deserves a tight slap for being utterly lousy on many counts.
Cast: Ranvir Shorey, Mallika Sherawat
Kabir is an engineering student in Mumbai.His is a carefree lifestyle, which involves partying with friends and not caring about his responsibilities.On one such day sober Kabir saves a sloshed Kuhu who is inebriated from getting knocked down by a local train and carries her to a hotel where he gets to sleep the night with her. Only he sleeps on the floor while she snores on a cushy bed.Kabir falls for Kuhu whose normal way of interaction with him is more by hand than by mouth.
Pun unintended, Kuhu instinctively keeps slapping the poor guy for minutest of reasons. He takes her mobile. Smack! He ogles at a girl. Smack! He asks a silly question. Smack! He asks the right question. Smack! He doesnâ€™t mind the slap. Smack!And Kabir does every wacky thing she demands â€“ like riding a bicycle in a petticoat or walking in stilettos. The unique friendship of this odd couple hits a few bumps and the love between them largely remains unexpressed or unrealized until the very end when the poor hero is compensated for all the firm slaps with one fleeting kiss.
For its most part, â€˜Ugly Aur Pagliâ€™ rides on the shoulders of Ranvir and Mallika, both totally suited to their roles.Ranvir is particularly impressive playing a loser, while Mallika looks natural as a girl who dominates her man.Pun unintended again.And thereâ€™s also a sweet little cameo by Zeenat Aman that makes sitting through this ugly and pagli trip a little worth while.
