If paradoxes are par for the course in Bollywood, here's a freshly baked one: Emran Hashmi's Ungli is like the Aamir Khan-starrer Rang De Basanti, except that it so totally isn't.


On a superficial level, the similarities between the two films are in your face: Like the 2006 starrer, Ungli too has a force of young vigilantes who set out to clean the system, and with it the country, of evil, corrupt and morally bankrupt people in positions of power. Like RDB, the foursome is woken out of their careless slumber after they lose a friend to the ways of the world. So, okay you know what happens next: the friends are sucked into a vortex of corruption, and they have to eventually tread on the wrong side of law to get their friend some semblance of justice.


Trouble is, Ungli has only this, and only this much, common with RDB. Everything else about this apology of a 'coming-of-age celebration' of India's youngsters falls flat on its face, and it is definitely not going anywhere.


Let's put it thus: Even if we were to ignore the acting skills (or the complete lack of it) of everybody who claims to be an actor in this film, there is just no way you could live peacefully with the cliched, irritating dialogues in the film. Ungli is a torture, to say the least, and you certainly deserve a better deal on how to spend your 90 minutes. Sample this Emraan Hashmi gem when he tries to cheer up a despondent and depressed Sanjay Dutt. “Ansuon se sirf whisky dilute hoti hai.” Got that! Want more?
