Ungli review: Where to point the finger?
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
The good looking bunch of actors with decent performances (Hooda and Hashmi stand out) managing-to-keep-you-hooked kind of script and a fairly laidback, easy, not in your face direction (Rensil D'silva) could have made this film wonderful, but for the dia
Director Renzil D'Silva reduces his film from soaring by packing in innumerable illogical situations
Sneha May Francis, Emirates 24X7
A story like this needed to hit a lot harder.
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times
If we consider 'Ungli' movie as a poker game between a common man and the corruption, it ends up getting a full hand consisting of good concept, crisp direction, razor swift dialogues and decent performances by the lead actors
Divya Solgama, Movie Zadda
Coming from the writer of Rang De Basanti, Ungli has the same spark of brilliance
Mohar Basu, Koi Moi
Great promise foiled by dismal execution
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
Here is the concept of corruption confused with crime and a myriad other issues plaguing our country, served up junk-food style with stale fries on the side. Or you could call it the simplistic and delusional version of Rang De Basanti, inspired as it is
Sonia Chopra, Sify
There’s some good ol’ fashioned earnestness at the core of writer-director Rensil D’silva’s Ungli, but the film is so steeped in naiveté and trades in such simplistic solutions, it’s as if you’re listening to a Class V moral science lesson.

Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda let down by predictable and contrived plot
Subramanian Harikumar, Bollywood Life
No pinky promise Writing a contemporary tale about vigilante justice isn't limited to its physical form; the perpetrators could be college kids (Rang De Basanti), fed-up citizens (A Wednesday) or even glorified superheroes (Defendor)

Yawns: Guaranteed
rachnasrivastava, Chirtamala
Sad.. It’s so bad. A crappy instant noodle (on availability of actors date) type of cinema that continuously has unconvincing, irrational events orchestrated by the writer director Renzil D'Silva (brilliant when good Rang De Basanti as writer) and awful when bad both as writer and director.. Wallah‘Kurbaan’.

Ungli is a fresh and interesting piece of entertainment. Give it a watch
Roma Heer, Wassup Bollywood
Ungli is as mindless as its title
Rohit Khilnani, India Today
The film has an interesting premise, but the second half and shoddy climax does Ungli to any chances of it leaving a lasting impression on us.
Tushar Joshi, DNA India
All in all, if you want to watch a film about rebelling against the corrupt system then UNGLI is a decent watch for this weekend.

A kind of film where research is done by watching Hollywood’s comic book vigilantes that are then adapted with staple Indian situations drawn from television debates
The Hindu
Emraan Hashmi's Ungli is an apology of a 'coming-of-age celebration' of India's youngsters and it falls flat on its face. Nobody associated with the film ever had any idea where it was going. Terrible dialogues and bad acting skills make it completely for

The intentions of the vigilantes in ‘Ungli’ are noble, but where’s the punch?
Gulf News
Rensil D’Silva’s “Ungli”, about a gang of vigilantes who set out to right the wrongs in a rotting system, seems to take off from where “Rang De Basanti” (a film he co-wrote) ended. Young, angry and frustrated, four friends form a secret organisation that

The film has the heart at its right place and deals with the issue of corruption smartly.

Much like the middle finger salute, however, Ungli ends up to be a rather pointless and forgettable gesture.
Deepanjana Pal, First Post
Ungli is a film that starts with some good intent but falters midway
Noyon Jyoti Parasara, Now Running
Hence it is best suited you leave high expectations at home while watching ‘Ungli’. Thumbs Up: The concept of busting corruption Thumbs Down: Loosely knit plot, slow pace Yawns: Guaranteed

The final shot of the movie is a giant hand showing you the middle finger, so whether you take that as a hint or not, is left to you.

Nishant Srivastava, Filmy Keeday
Ungli reveals how corruption is rampant throughout the city and can be found at every level of government. In case you haven’t guessed already, the title of the movie is a big middle finger" to the fraudulent system.

Neha Prashar Gupta, Bollywood 3
Overall it's well acted film with a strong message that goes wrong due to poor direction and sloppy script..

JAGRAN
The only way you can enjoy this mindless film is by looking at the fun side of the 'witty punishments' the vigilante foursome unleashes on its victims. Ah yes, even the dialogues: They are so miserable that you just cannot the miss their fun side.
Soumya Srivastava, Hindustan Times
Watch it if you have a free ticket or else wait for its DVD to come out.

Tushar Joshi, DNA India
During Ungli, I kept imagining writer/director Rensil D’Silva narrating the script to producer Karan Johar. “So, I’ve got these five really cool scenes where corrupt people get caught in interesting ways. We’ll fill everything in between with smart wordplay, talented actors and an item number. Do we have a film?”
