We saw My Sassy Girl (with English subtitles) a few months ago. Its an excellently made Korean romantic comedy about an engineering student and a girl who has just broken up with her boyfriend. The script, the acting, and the actors looked so fresh and innocent. So yesterday it was a big shock when I exclaimed Its a My Sassy Girl remake even when Mallika Sherawat hadnt shown up even once, while just beginning to watch Ugly Aur Pagli. They have so blatantly copied the movie, frame by frame, that you can make out the moment the guys mother (one of the first scenes) yells at him on the phone. We were so put off that we stopped watching the movie after 15 minutes.
Of course there is a big difference between the original actors in My Sassy Girl and the stale-looking Ranvir Shauri and Mallika Sherawat in Ugly Aur Pagly. Ranvir Shauri no-way looks a young engineering student and Mallika Sherawat over-does whatever shes trying to do. I really recommend that you watch My Sassy Girl because its one of the most original romantic film scripts.
I wonder how much the script writer of Ugly Aur Pagli got paid for writing the script. If its this easy to become a successful Hindi script writer, I can give them 10 scripts every week after downloading them from online script archives.
