After breaking up with his childhood sweetheart, a young man finds solace in drugs. Meanwhile, a teenage girl is caught in the world of prostitution. Will they be destroyed, or will they find redemption?
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
Shahid Kapoor worked out for six months and took lessons in stammering from an ENT specialist to fit into his roles in the film. See more »
In the opening shot, Charlie is shown to be standing amidst railway tracks, beside whom a fast long-distance train passes. The area is said to be Cotton Green, Mumbai, through a text below. However, unlike shown in the movie, the area around Cotton Green does not have so many railway lines but, only two. Besides, no long distance trains pass through Cotton Green. See more »
Please come in, Mr. Sharma.
We barged in unannounced. We waited outside for awhile but we were hungry, so we came in hoping to find something to eat. Nothing beats fresh burgers on a rainy day.

I would only say one thing to the viewers.. If they do not accept such a matured cinema.. Such excellence on screen.. They should probably stop blabbering about movies... Because they know nothing, what a movie, cinema means! They are all just suitable for stupid "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi's" and etc crap.. GROW UP!! And if you can't.. Please do not comment on gems like these..
"KAMINEY" is a lifetime experience.. A masterpiece and a fantabulous creation of Vishal Bhardwaj.. The movie is a TOTAL ROLLER COASTER!! A ride you would regret for the rest of your life if you miss.. From the first scene to the last, the movie was a treat to me.. I was so excited about this movie, I couldn't resist.. Wondered when the clock would turn to10:30 .. And the show begins.. It completely paid off.. In fact I enjoyed more than I paid for the ticket, more than my expectations and more than any bollywood movie of such a genre till now.. The movie deserves awards in various sections like editing, cinematography, background score, special effects, direction, acting, supporting actors.. It amazed me how disgustingly good the editing was!! Tassaduq Hussain's Cinematography is another strength of the movie... And my god!! Vishal Bhardwaj's Screenplay & self-penned dialogues will blow your head off at times!! Top Notch!!
A concept like Kaminey is extremely difficult to execute on screen.. But Vishal Bhardwaj proves that he's a brilliant story-teller.. Be patient while watching the movie & also attentive, the movie jumps too quick for Indian viewers who aren't used to with such cinema and more attached towards the brainless movies these days! The movie stands up-to its hype & even more I should say.. Shahid has no, mark my words, no looking back after this performance.. His path to super-stardom starts here! Priyanka delivers another class act! She's the best actress in the industry currently, no other actress even stands close.. Shahid, Vishal Bhardwaj & the background score has created a landmark in the industry for centuries to come in terms of cinematic excellence..
I cannot agree anymore with Mr. Taran Adarsh when he says "Vishal Bhardwaj picked up the characters & executed them like Tarantino & Guy Ritchie.." You'll totally agree with that!
It is clearly visible how hard the whole crew has worked to attain perfection, because the movie WAS PERFECT in every aspect!! Upcoming directors have one of the biggest threats Vishal Bhardwaj in their way, if they at all touch a subject close to this..
Shahid, Priyanka, Chandan Roy Sanyal (Mikhail), Amol Gupte (Bhope) were truly, truly outstanding!!
I feel short of words to describe this movie.. I seriously cannot wait to watch it again.. Of course I'm going again, but will badly badly wait for the DVD.. Not to forget, the end of the movie was simply ---- FANTABULOUS ----
If you truly enjoy cinema, go for KAMINEY.. Else, better wait for SRK or FARAH KHAN's next POPCORN FLICK!! Go for Kaminey for Shahid, for Priyanka, for Vishal Bhardwaj, for the Music & for everything you want from a masterpiece! And next time you end up comparing why do Bollywood standards do not reach Hollywood, stay quite! You don't deserve a word!
I love dark movies.. The environment, the sets, the cinematography in such movies.. Really intrigue me a lot.. Kaminey had that thing from the first till the last frame.. I cannot stop my fingers from writing.. Anyways..
I've always been obsessed THE MATRIX TRILOGY, Kaminey is the fresh obsession I have..
Rating : 10/10 (Deserves every bit of it!)
