Movie Info


Running Time




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, 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. They find themselves facing rogue politicians, drug dealers and crooked cops. As 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.Wikipedia

Kaminey Reviews

Raja Sen


And while films of this ilk are full of disposable-bodies and corpses-in-waiting, one discovers that Vishal has -- sneakily, stealthily, surreptitiously -- kept the sentiments so darned real that by the time the climax rolls around, you do actually give a damn about these characters.Wow. Now if that isn't kameenapan, I don't know what is. Awefome.

Truly, Kaminey's a heady vodka martini, leaving you both shaken and stirred. And no, don't even ask for the popcorns. You'll leave them untouched coz this one just isn't the regular-run-of-the-mill popcorn flick.

There’s still nothing to take away from the movement this movie means to Hindi films. Missing it is your own entertainment loss. Given the director’s unfortunate commercial track-record with gems like Maqbool and Omkara, I really hope this time, ‘Vishal overcome!’

The entire two hours 10 minutes of taut drama is backed by some great music. The least known end credit number has the potential of lingering on your mindscape for longer than the flashier Dhan ta na.

Kaminey will take some getting used to. It isn’t the comfort food that Bollywood normally dishes out. But I strongly recommend that you see it. This taste is worth acquiring.

An intoxicating, stoned watch — do it and do it now!


Kaminey is a potential blockbuster. It has all the right ingredients along with superior direction, to please every cinegoer.

Those who’ve tasted the work of Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino may enjoy Kaminey without labelling it as being spectacularly genius.As crime dramas go, the film is supremely clever, complex and funny. Worth a munch.


On the whole, Kaminey lives up to the hype associated with it.

    Vishal Bharadwaj, with a dark success story kind of thing, proves he is unmatchable in his art by making Kaminey. But with his interesting performance, Shahid Kapoor keeps you actually invested on screen and not actually on the popcorn. And there is Priyanka Chopra, equally riveting and offbeat as a love interest. On the whole, it is a well-made film actually worth your time.
