Verdict: Novel script, decent direction and good acting skills all combine to make this worth watching though the film is predictable right from the word go.

Ungli is the take of a group of four youngsters on the corruption in India. Rensil D’Silva comes up with a novel script and decent intentions in terms of bringing social reform but he ensures that entertainment remains the prime focus of the film. He succeeds in maintaining good pace in the first half but the movie tends to lose grip in the second half especially with the melodrama. Screenplay remains predictable throughout and this is one thing that could have been better.

Emraan Hashmi is good as the careless cop who doesn’t have any interest in his duties. He emotes appropriately and makes you connect with the character easily. Randeep Hooda shares a lot of screen space in the film and delivers a brilliant performance. He never goes overboard and shows conviction. Sanjay Dutt is at his usual best and looks at ease with the role. Kangana doesn’t get a meaty role in the film and does her best in whatever space she has. The rest of the cast provided their support as required. Shraddha Kapoor sizzles in the special song.

Cinematography is noteworthy and editing is decent. Music is good and background score needs special mention. Dialogues mostly are decent. If not for the predictable screenplay, the film would have easily been far better.

Overall, Ungli is not a difficult watch and the credit goes to the director. All the actors support him well and succeed in making this film watchable. Watch it for the novel script and the freshness in narration.
