New Delhi, July 1 - Movie buffs in the capital are gearing up to catch a glimpse of Anurag Kashyap's yet to release dark drama Ugly, which will open the fifth edition of the Jagran Film Festival (JFF) here Saturday.

Ugly, a thriller and emotional drama starring Ronit Roy, Rahul Bhat, Tejaswini Kolhapure, Vinit Kumar Singh, Surveen Chawla and Vipin Sharma, has already been screened at the Cannes International Film Festival and the New York Indian Film Festival.

The movie, the Asia premiere of which was recently held at the Ladakh International Film Festival, is officially scheduled to release Sep 19.

The film opens with the kidnapping of an aspiring actor's 10-year-old daughter and the search for the kidnapper and the girl is what forms the rest of the story.

While Ugly will keep audiences at JFF on the edge of their seats on the opening day, the gala also promises an interesting line up of 25 movies from across the world.

Actor-filmmaker Amol Palekar and Bengali filmmaker Goutam Ghose head the film's juries. Amol will head the Indian Showcase as well as the feature films jury while Goutam will lend his expertise in judging the international short film competition, said a statement.

Since JFF is a travelling fest and will be held in 14 Indian cities including Mumbai, Kanpur, Lucknow, Agra, Meerut and Varanasi, the juries will meet during the Mumbai leg of the festival in September and the results will be announced at a gala in Mumbai before a star-studded audience.
