If the Ugly poster caught your attention, the film’s official trailer ensures that it does not waver. Directed by Anurag Kashyap and starring Rahul Bhatt, Tejaswini Kolhapure and Ronit Roy, Ugly will probably live up to its title of depicting an ugly reality. There are enough films in Kashyap’s repertoire for you to take instant notice of his gritty technique, with harried faces of lesser known actors and his love for the grimmer underbelly of big cities.
And as always, Anurag seems to have his finger on the pulse of audiences who will want to see what he can showcase after his Gangs of Wasseypur releases. The trailer shows a distraught father searching for his daughter whom he had left alone for a moment in the car. Big mistake. Now the man has to pay heavily by pursuing all leads possible and even being subject to brutal police interrogation as a suspect. It’s also pretty cool to see Ronit Roy play a tough cop after Shootout at Wadala.
As the invisible clock ticks away in the back of his mind, will he find his daughter alive? Will he be alive himself to find her? We’ll have to wait until the film’s release, which is on October 11 this year, to find out.
