The stage is set for this year’s explosive black comedy-drama, as five vigilantes take justice into their own hands in the dark and witty urban tale Ungli (Finger), which releases on 28th November 2014 through Reliance Entertainment in UK cinemas.
Produced by Dharma Productions, the film company helmed by supremo director and producer Karan Johar, the edgy film, with a noir comic twist, is set in a sprawling metropolis, where corruption, intimidation and violence are a way of life. A city that never sleeps, the underworld is at full force, led by a sinister mob that demands obedience and respect.
Enter five rebels, who decide that they have had enough of the corruption that has blighted their city, and so decide to unite and expose the corrupt through whatever means necessary. The only thing that stands in their path is a tenacious police officer named ‘Kale’, portrayed by veteran actor Sanjay Dutt.
Here Kangana Ranaut opens up about the film and more…
The film follows a group of five friends on their quest to stand up to corruption, how was it acting with Emraan, Randeep, Neil and Angad?
It was hilarious; they are a funny group of guys. After filming with them for a few weeks it started to feel like we had known each other all our lives.
This is your third film with Emraan Hashmi, how was it working with him again?
Emraan is a great guy; he is really down to earth and is a very diverse actor. We get on really well outside of work and having worked together in three films now we have become very comfortable around each other. It’s always fun to work with Emraan and I think our friendship in real life comes across in this film; it isn’t hard to act like friends when you actually are!
People have been praising your character as the heroine of the story, why do you think everyone loves your character so much?With this type of film, men have always been at the forefront of fighting crime and standing up to corruption. I think by having a girl in the group it shows how times are changing, and that women can kick ass as well (laughs).
‘Ungli’ has attracted a lot of attention, why do you think people are so interested in this film?
I think ‘Ungli’ has a great team working on it, everyone is really focused on making this film the best it can be. It has everything that a great film needs; Rensil has done a fantastic job of combing humor and actually a really interesting message. People have been waiting for this film for years now and many didn’t think it would ever actually get released so now that a release date has been set, I think everyone is really excited to see the outcome.
