wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

The repulsion you feel towards Ugly is what makes it a good film. A thriller that makes you uncomfortable from within.

An Anurag Kashyap film by default generates a certain kind of buzz around the film. There has to be a controversy or two around the film. But beyond that, we all know there is something non-standard coming our way. And that is what we look forward to.

Interestingly then, Ugly's trailer looks like any other thriller that involves kidnapping with the victim being harassed by the police and all and sundry. Disappointingly, a bit of a downer. Usually, a film written by Anurag Kashyap has a dialogue or two that will stick in your head. Ugly offers not one.

In fact, it even looks like a major plot twist is given away in the trailer itself. But, you put in the context of the film being by Anurag Kashyap and you know there is something more up his sleeve. Or at least that's the hope. In either case, certainly looks like no room for music here. There are no music reviews out there.

Usually, with a film under this brand, there is more than just the branding to look forward to. This time, there seems very little. It is as exciting as it makes you nervous about the film.
