Format: DVD
UGLY AUR PAGLI (Ugly and Crazy) tells of the unusual relationship between an engineering student and a girl he meets on a train platform. It's a Bollywood romantic comedy, but even more than that, it's just an odd movie. By the way, "Ugly" is the guy and "Crazy" is the girl, but all that is made obvious early on.

If you're a dude like Kabir and your parents had dressed you up as a girl when you were a baby, well, you're gonna have issues. Kabir has grown up into a pushover, a doormat in life. And when he prevents the inebriated Kuhu from getting flyswatted by an onrushing train, he doesn't know what he's letting himself in for. Without exactly knowing how, Kabir finds himself a lot in the accompany of the girl he'd just saved. Kuhu, it turns out, is a self-absorbed nutcase who seems to enjoy bullying Kabir around. Kabir thinks her "fun and unpredictable" but all I see is her slapping him around a whole bunch of times.

Thru the course of the film, she makes him do very uncool things like walk around in high heels and ride bicycles with no seat. Dude even goes to prison because of her (okay, it was just an overnighter). What with the mortifying hell she put him thru, I guess it was only natural a naive git like him would fall in love with her.

Bollywood's stock in trade is the remake. This one remakes the excellent 2001 South Korean romantic comedy titled My Sassy Girl (2001) (or "Yeopgijeogin Geunyeo"). But, in UGLY AUR PAGLI, something got lost in the translation. Because it's simply not as good and, with its quirkiness, it definitely isn't to everyone's taste. There's a breezy feel to the film, though, which keeps things going, even if there's not much to the story.
