Here is the movie review for Ungli:
Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Hungama Network Site:Bollywood Hungama
While the film establishes itself and its characters well within the first fifteen minutes, it loses the grip as it progresses. The first half of the film is effective and crisp, unlike the film's second half, which is stretched, thus, making the film bereft of entertainment value. The end climax scene will be difficult for certain audiences to digest. 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, led by Randeep Hooda, Emraan Hashmi and Sanjay Dutt, is loaded with noble intentions, but is weighed down by uneven execution and simplistic twists.The Ungli gang’s vigilantism is never grand until the climax, and by then you may be past caring. To watch them repeatedly bring down corrupt traffic constables and dishonest officers who issue driver’s licenses is not exactly riveting.The team behind Ungli may have set out to make a noble film, but where’s the punch?

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. It would be better if they dealt with what caused corruption than ways to deal with it. It even ends abruptly with no concrete message. Ungli is not as bad as O Teri or Fugly, but not even close to the best corruption movie of all times --- Rang De Basanti. If RDB led to an awakening, Ungli does just the opposite. It put me to sleep. Watch it if you have a free ticket or else wait for its DVD to come out.

Ultimately, however, you have to wonder about the intelligence of the adults who think they're bringing about social change by traipsing around the city wearing masks and playing practical jokes on the powerful. It's all intensely adolescent. 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.

After around 30 minutes in the movie, Emraan Hashmi gets full frames to show his act apart from his one lip-lock and an unwelcomed dance number. Randeep Hooda is the one who gets few scenes to give a good show but once again he too is let down by bad script. Sanjay Dutt essays the role of a ‘majoor’ cop which he has never played. Music by Salim-Sulaiman and Sachin-Jigar isn’t happening this time.

There is of course a back story to the foursome's decision to take the law into their hands. But, like everything else here, it is seriously wanting in credibility and depth. The rest of the film delivers a whole lot of hogwash about a compromised police force and the mounting frustration of ordinary folk who must stay within the confines of the law even when they know that the rich and powerful can bend the rules at will. With a runtime of well under two hours, Ungli is not a long film. But that does not make it any easier to sit through. While the former keeps the film crisp and sharp, the latter lends it a distinctive visual feel. But much of the fine technical work is wasted because the rest of Ungli never manages to point in the right directions. Ungli has a few attributes that you will not usually encounter in a Karan Johar production. It has no big stars, no elaborate song and dance set pieces and no major love story. But when a film is more interesting for what it isn't than for what it is, giving it a miss might be the most prudent option.

Coming from the writer of Rang De Basanti, Ungli has the same spark of brilliance. Rensil keeps the story moving fluidly towards a fantastic climax, which is nothing short of genius. The camaraderie between its actors is palpable and despite a few vital pitfalls, the film stays true to what it has set out to achieve. Ungli might not offer a solution to our day to day problems but does a darn good job at tapping the right chords and sentiments and translating it on screen and met out a hard befitting answer to the culprits. And lastly, the best thing about Ungli is it doesn’t get preachy; it asks you to rise up for your rights without hammering your head to it. Give this one a chance, you too will rise up, take charge and show the Ungli.

Emraan Hashmi is good as usual and yes he has a kissing scene too. Randeep Hooda and Sanjay Dutt play their part well. It's good to see Dutt back on the big screen that too in a police uniform. The girls Kangana Ranaut and Neha Dhupia have little to do. Music by various composers didn't actually help. 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.

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.

The film does have a social message which every proud citizen of the country must catch and understand—however, if only what cinema shows could be turned into reality with a whiff of fresh air. Do watch it to find your way of fighting the revolution!

Emraan Hashmi flashes his ‘serial kisser’ reel image, and randomly kisses a girl to sign off a broken relationship. And, when he’s not fighting to fit in, he’s dancing the night away with item girls. It’s a part that deserves no emoting, so Emraan sleepwalks unharmed. There’s Kangana who shares his indifference. Surely being handed the sole purpose of injecting criminals with sleep-inducing serums doesn’t require much effort on her part. She voluntarily steps back to let Angad Bedi and Neil Bhoopalam hog more prominence as they flex their biceps, and occasionally their facial muscles. But, it’s Randeep Hooda who appears a little more earnest than the rest. Unfortunately, he’s unable to shake off the impact of a sketchy screenplay. He’s left to do much of the hard work, and he doesn’t disappoint. Neha Dhupia is the other genuine act. Sadly, Sanjay Dutt is hit miserably as the jaded cop. Despite his good intentions, Renzil is incapable of turning his men into heroes.
