Storyline

Guddu and Charlie are identical twins born and raised in the slums of Mumbai. They dream of leaving the squalor behind and moving into a life of prosperity and dignity. Though they look alike, the two are as different as chalk and cheese: one lisps while the other stammers; one is an honest, diligent social worker while the other hedges bets at a racecourse. The brothers want nothing to do with each other, but when Charlie gets mixed up in a deadly get-rich-quick scheme and Guddu realizes that the love of his life has unwittingly put a price on his head, their lives begin to collide. Faced with rogue politicians, drug dealers and crooked cops, they uncover a sinister plot laid out by the 'political-police-underworld' nexus. Their stories finally converge to a point when they realize they only have each other. Written by UTV Communications

Dhan Te Nan!
12 August 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Kaminey is one of those gems which is churned out by the the Bollywood film industry maybe once in five years. If it has to be described in one word, I think 'Extraordinary' would be a good one. Nobody would disagree with the fact that Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have both established themselves as fine actors as they delivered the performances of their career. Vishal Bhardawaj once again proves why he is counted amongst the elegant filmmakers that India has to offer. This film will surely help Bollywood break out of the barricades of outdated film making, and shift towards a more contemporary technique of pleasing audiences. Vishal Bhardawaj himself will agree that Kaminey is his most outstanding film till date.

9.5/10
