Ugly tells us what William Shakespeare did centuries ago. Human nature, by its very nature, is rotten and to the core. You cannot escape your basic nature of self-serving greed.
The characters in Ugly are ruthless, dark, desperate and dangerous, more to themselves than others. Anurag Kashyap's Ugly is a thriller which leaves us with a sense of utter futility about the quality of life that we lead.
On the whole, technically brilliant with some wonderful performances, UGLY strictly caters to a niche audience. Moreover the choice of releasing it during a festive period isn't a great idea either. Watch it if you are an Anurag Kashyap fan, else avoid!
