Duplicate is essentially a movie about two men, one good and one bad but who coincidently have the same face.
14 November 2005 | by husnain_05See all my reviews

Babloo (Sharukh Khan) is basically a daydreamer and aspires to a chef on international repute. He is forever daydreaming of cooking at five star establishments. Manu Dada (Sharukh Khan) on the other hand is a ruthless criminal on the run. Babloo is in love with Sonia (Juhi Chawla) who is the Banquet manager of an up market hotel that Sharukh Khan works at. Manu Dada likes Lilly (Sonali Bendre). Babloo and Manu's tracks keep alternating till they converge at the interval part of the film. After which Manu takes advantage of the innocent Babloo and continues his violent escapades using Babloo's identity and Babloo uses Manu. This film was a good movie and very funny. I loved watching the fighting parts.
