My all time favorite film!!!
3 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say, Duplicate is probably the best film I've ever seen!

Duplicate is basically about two men, Babloo and Manu who happen to have the same face. Babloo dreams of becoming a chef at a five-star hotel, while Manu is a criminal who has escaped from jail and is out to get revenge on his three friends. Babloo is in love with Sonia (Juhi Chawla), the hotel's banquet manager and Manu romances with Lily (Sonali Bendre).

Some parts of the film were hilarious and left me laughing like crazy! It really amazed me how much of an idiot Babloo could be at times, like when he told Manu about an ID card given to him by the police to reduce the confusion between the two. I also found many of Duplicate's action scenes to be quite entertaining.

As for the music, each and every song was excellent and somewhat unique in its own way. I especially enjoyed "Mere Mehboob Mere Sanam." Not only is it an amazing song, but Shahrukh, Juhi and Sonali did an awesome job at performing it!

I thought the acting in the movie was fantastic! Shahrukh did an excellent job playing both roles of Babloo and Manu. Juhi's acting was amazing as usual, and even Sonali did a great job at playing Lily's vampish character.

I myself have watched Duplicate hundreds of times and would recommend it to anyone. This film is guaranteed to leave you satisfied!

Duplicate deserves a 10/10!
