Movie Info

Delving deep into the underbelly of India's film industry, where back-alley producers churn out everything from pulpy horror movies to soft-core porn, MISS LOVELY takes us back to the Mumbai of the 1980s with lurid detail and intoxicating style. Working out of sleazy hotels and abandoned warehouses, brothers Sonu (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and Vicky (Anil George) are prolific producers of trashy, C-grade films for Mumbai's booming and underground markets. The ambitious, domineering Vicky is the unquestioned brains of the operation, leading the dim-witted Sonu deeper into a world of divas, money men and movie-loving gangsters. But this precarious partnership is put to the test when the brothers meet Pinky (Niharika Singh), an exquisite ingénue with a shady past. Director Ashim Ahluwalia has created a hyper-stylized, retro thriller that explores the awful truths of exploitation cinema as well as its strange pleasures. (C) DADA Films

  • An atmospheric tragedy set in the sordid world of Bombay's exploitation-film industry during the late 1980s.

  • Though not pretentious, [the] film feels a tad overthought, held back somehow by a stubborn, dour obscurity clouding its freshly realized, lurid milieu.

  • "Miss Lovely" does exude an air of authenticity... But much of the film remains underdeveloped.

    June 19, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The "Miss Lovely" script's a set of pulpy contrivances padded out for thematic oomph, but director Ashim Ahluwalia has serious visual flair, and that keeps you watching.

    June 18, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Florid direction, lurid atmosphere, and reckless passions all contribute to the intoxicating deliriousness of Miss Lovely, a thriller set in 1980s India's B-movie industry.

    June 17, 2014 | Full Review…
  • What it is exactly is a little uncertain, given the film's curiously sluggish pace for a retro-thriller and discouragingly murky camerawork that makes action sequences, especially, hard to follow.
