At first glance, the Kabir Sadanand directed Fugly seems to be a mesh of trying too hard and almost funny.
Starring Jimmy Shergill, Mohit Marwah, Vijender Singh, and Kiara Advani, the movie is described as a â€œsocial thriller with a messageâ€. What the message is supposed to be is not apparent.
The story, if one can call it that, is the usual four friends living life the way bored and insecure 20-somethings would live it, until they run into a corrupt cop intent on making their life hell.
The most one can hope for in this scenario is some good laughs and brainless entertainment. We can only hope Fugly does not turn out to be an hour and a half of torture, though the trailer promises it will be.
