Ungli Movie Review Critics
Ungli Movie Review by Tushar Joshi from DNA : Ungli’s biggest issue is that it tries to camouflage itself as an entertainer under the pretext of delivering a social message. Rensil tries to do justice to sending a message to the youth and also making a commercially viable project, but fails to do either.

Ungli Movie Review by Mohar Basu from Koimoi.com : I think it’s putting too much of a responsibility on a film to instigate a social change. It’s job is to primarily entertain and make better cinema. Ungli’s novelty is its highlight point. Benefitting from sharp writing, lucid narrative and a few clapworthy zingy dialogues which have the punch, I do think Ungli is one of 2014′s most novel concepts. Well rendered and acted with zeal, don’t miss five people showing an entire system, the finger. I am going with 3.5 stars.

Ungli Movie Review by Soumya Shrivastava from Hindustan Times : So, does Ungli have even one redeeming factor? Actually, it has one. The only way you can enjoy this mindless film is by looking at the fun side of the ‘witty punishments’ the vigilante foursome unleashes on its victims. Ah yes, even the dialogues: They are so miserable that you just cannot the miss their fun side.

Ungli Movie Review by Deepanjana Pal from First Post: The idea of using the raised middle finger as a sign meant to cause offence is believed to have originated in ancient Greece. Apparently, that classical civilization gets the credit for having noticed the phallic possibilities in the gesture. Considering the imagery, it’s fitting that Ungli is all about boys looking for a high. Much like the middle finger salute, however, Ungli ends up to be a rather pointless and forgettable gesture.

Ungli Movie Review by Rohit Khilnani from India Today: The intention may have been good but the plot is silly and way to unrealistic! It’s kind of clear that some of it was possibly salvaged in post production but quite a bit was beyond repair. So Ungli releases with all the loopholes at a theatre near you.

Ungli Movie Review by Bollywood Hungama: While the background music (John Stewart) of the film is brilliant, the film’s music (Salim-Sulaiman, Sachin-Jigar, Gulraj Singh) is not bad. Songs like ‘Ungli Theme‘ and ‘Dance Basanti‘ are peppy while ‘Pakeezah‘ is melodious. The film’s editing is very crisp, so much so that the film’s run time is only 114 minutes. Dialogues by Milap Zaveri are very real and in today’s lingo. The entire film is shot in Mumbai and the DoP has done a decent job of portraying the city. All in all, if you want to watch a film about rebelling against the corrupt system then UNGLI is a decent watch for this weekend.

Ungli Movie Review by Lokesh Dharmani from Masala.com : Ungli deals with corruption in a very simplistic, superficial way. It never reaches out to the root of the problem, is quick to judge the poor Pandu hawaldaar or the auto drivers on the road and is quicker to punish them.
