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

Goofs

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 »

Dhan Te Nan
14 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Well if you thought that the song Dhan Te Nan which you see on various TV channels is frantic,just wait till you see this pumped-up heavy duty movie. The film begins with a chase sequence near the local trains of Mumbai.And from then on the pace of the movie never drops as it hurtles towards an explosive climax where all bets are off about who'll make it and who will not. The basic story revolves around a "Guitar" to which many people are connected directly or indirectly.Its a story about the decisions which we make in our life and what impact they have on us and the people around us. The movie has a large number of characters but its the beauty of screenplay and the Director that they all become memorable ones and not just forgettable names. Chief among them is Mikhail(Chandan Roy Sanyal) as Charlie's best friend. Amol Gupte is menacing as the villain. Priyanka Chopra who is riding high these days once again shows that she is a very capable actress and not just a pretty girl. Shahid Kapoor has always been a good actor in the simpleton Guddu type roles,but here he literally burns the screen as the whacko race-bookie Charlie.The tremendous passion which he brings to screen really keeps the viewers riveted to this scintillating saga of twin brothers. And finally... THE MAN.VISHAL BHARADWAJ. He literally makes the film what it is with the best direction and music that i've seen in any Hindi movie in a long long time. Take a bow Mr. Vishal Bharadwaj.You have really made a movie which shows how the movies should really be made.
