Ungli is Rensil D’Silva’s attempt to unveil the corruption that prevails in our society. The film starts off with an old man getting a stroke, while he is in attendance with his daughter at the Pension Office. When he ends up in the hospital, the daughter explains the situation to the doctor, which is overheard by Maya, played by Kangana Ranaut, who works at the same hospital. She goes to tells Abhay, played by Randeep Hooda, and the others, that they have their first “case”. That night, those who were bullying the old man at the Pension Office and kidnapped. They inform the media and police. And they are now known as the “Ungli” gang. This is their way of showing the finger to the system. This calls for the police to become vigilant: Raza Murad is the police commissioner; Sanjay Dutt is an honest police officer named Ashok Kale; and Nikhil, played by Emraan Hashmi, is also a police officer who hates everything about the system. Somehow, Nikhil will find himself amidst of a gang whose operation he likes himself. He will soon be torn between duty and personal choices.


After Kurbaan, Rensil D’Silva showcases his frustration with the system. While it is a good attempt by him, there are certain problems with the film, specifically in relation to the good cop finding his bad company not too bad. The problem is that while the premise is interesting, the film slows in its pace several times unnecessarily. While the first half of the film brings home the message, the second half tends to drag on with the same twists and turns one would expect. The one thing I will say is that the dialogues really make the film stand out more.


What is best about the film is the performance of each actor. Emraan Hashmi is phenomenal, as expected, because this is where his interest lies – in dark cinema. Sanjay Dutt makes his presence known from the get-go and it is always such a pleasure to see such a seasoned actor on the big screen again. Randeep Hooda is so effective in his part – he needs to start getting more credit for his talent. Obviously, Kangana Ranaut is right on the money. Neha Dhupia is good and one wishes we saw her in more substantial roles again. Shraddha Kapoor, of course, is absolutely sizzling in her first item number “Dance Basanti”. Every actor in this ensemble plays his or her part efficiently and effectively.


It is such a pleasure to watch these fine actors on screen that you should watch the film at least once – just for them.

This is worth a watch.

  2. There is no such thing as cheap and to shoot weddings A good flash is one with a swviel/bounce head and which you can adjust the flash output. these can cost anywhere from $ 100 (for a third party flash) to hundreds of dollars (for a brand name or a handlemount flash)Comment: But i do not want to pay hundreds of dollars for something i dont need, Answer: If you don\'t need it, then why are you in need of it BAD ? You contradict yourself in the same sentence/fragment.TTL means through the lens. I think all modern flashes are TTL (or some derivative of that). For the purposes of your question it is not really crucial that you know what that is, but you can look up what it means on the internet if you\'re curious.I think wireless remote means just that that you can set it off remotely without needing to use a wire.You won\'t really get much better pictures with an external flash if you don\'t really know how to use it you may as well save your money. Alternatively, you can get one, but be prepared to accept that fact that your pictures won\'t turn out that much better. In order for that to happen, it takes practice. I speak from personal experience (I had a family member getting married so I went out and bought an external flash thinking my pictures would improve drastically they didn\'t. I may as well have used my pop-up flash. Now 6 years later, I\'m better, but still have trouble with flash photography.
