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

Trivia

Priyanka Chopra did not want to do the kiss in the film. So she had the director shoot the entire scene without the kiss until she could make up her mind. However Shahid Kapoor was a gentleman about it and said that he'd only do it if she felt comfortable, so she finally agreed. See more »

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 »

Great Movie!!
14 August 2009 | by sushilonlinesSee all my reviews

Kaminey is a latest off track bollywood movie. Since its a off-track many may just don't like the way its presented to the audience. The film is about human nature and the way world treats people. If you are poor, if you are uneducated you are lost in this world of selfishness and power. You need to grow up in this world.

Saheed Kapoor in his double role has acted superb. His performance is adorable and I now like him much more than before. Its a bollywood movie with some sort of Hollywood taste. Its out off movie. A fast paced movie with lots of laughter & humor.

If you love gangster movie and deserve some new taste just watch this movie. A must for fans of Saheed Kapoor.
