Truly "Ugly aur Pagli" movie
What were the makers of this movie thinking. They thought they could give an Indian touch to the Korean original "Yeopgijeogin Geunyeo" which is a masterpiece by itself. Though I do not understand Korean, I watched the Korean version (with English subtitles) and was touched by every moment in it. A friend of mine suggested this movie and I thought it must be some kind of Korean comedy (with animated expressions). But the end result was totally different. It turned out to be a heart rendering, natural comedy with touching moments and a warm ending. Haven't seen the Hollywood version "My Sassy Girl" but the original is special and probably no remake could recreate the magic of the movie. Ugly aur Pagli is an utter failure in an attempt to do so. Instead the comedy is slapstick and makes no sense in the Indian context. Ranvir has been wasted here and Malika should stick to what she does best (which is not acting). Music has nothing to it, except for probably "Main Talli Ho Gayi". Overall the movie makes a mockery of the original and has nothing much to take back from it.
