A finger that points nowhere

A finger that points nowhere

Ungli
Hindi (U/A) ¬
Director: Rensil D’Silva
Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut, Randeep Hooda, Sanjay Dutt

Four vigilantes roam about Mumbai streets in masks. They break the law to nail the corrupt. They also give the system the finger at regular intervals.

And when they aren’t raising their third digit, here’s what the gang does: Randeep Hooda is a crime reporter (who chases fellow reporter Neha Dhupia more than his stories); Kangana Ranaut is a medical intern who keeps staring at her gym instructor brother in coma; Neil Bhoopalam and Angad Bedi are as clueless as the viewers, though Bedi occasionally flares up at all the nonsense going around.

Sanjay Dutt plays a cop entrusted with arresting the crusaders, but looks tired and downcast. No wonder he passes the job to junior Emraan Hashmi, a bad boy himself.
Now, Hashmi is one man having some fun here. He gets to dance with Shraddha Kapoor to an item number and manages to kiss a college girl during a bomb eviction exercise. Never mind, that’s “my speciality”.

Coming to the baddies, Mahesh Manjrekar looks menacing enough, but comes across terribly forgetful. He stuffs all his cupboards with money and then leaves them open!
The punishments they pronounce offer a few laughs, but the “ungli” gang does a bland job mending the ways of greedy politicos and cops. None to take this middle finger salute.
