A grungy, dark police procedural set in motion by a little girl's kidnapping, Ugly has few discernible auteur touches to set it apart from standard genre fare.

[A] lazy kidnap caper.

Screen International

It's not as nihilistic as the Gangs of Wasseypur productions from 2012, but its insights into the human condition are unconvincing and unearned.

Audience Reviews for Ugly


The movie beautifully shows the truth about us,our daily life,our natural behavior,our reaction to any incident,our system,our locality..It shows how in our day-to-day life we all behave as sick person on each and every matter related to us..Hats off to Anurag kashyap, Ronit Roy and the whole team for making such dark intense suspense movie..Its really one of the most thought provoking story on deeper and darker side of urban India and Human psychology..
