‘Dhan Te Nan’ Shahid definitely needs applause for his outstanding performance in the film. He now can be added in the list of top actors of bollywood. Pigy Chops is amazing and the chemistry between them is crackling.

With ‘Kaminey’ Vishal Bharadwaj pays homage to many old thrillers which is a good enough reason to watch the much anticipated movie of today's times. This black comedy thriller on the lines of European thrillers is worth a watch.

It is a very unpredictable film which might very well work for the film. Bharadwaj takes you to a completely different world which none of us have witnessed in hindi cinema. It is not a regular masala film, if paid attention you will come to know that very scene leads somewhere and is well coordinated at the end. Not a single scene is wasted.

To cut everything short ‘Kaminey’ is a well made film. If you are looking for an out n out experience this is a must watch. Bharadwaj has a knack of gluing the audience to
their seats to see what happens next and his way of testing the audience’s intelligence.

The film is a story of gangs big and small set in Mumbai. What you will see is a day in the life of two brothers (twins) who cannot stand each other and are on a run for different reasons all together. Guddu stammers while his twin Charlie lisps. Guddu marries Sweety (Priyanka Chopra) a maharashtrian mulgi, a short but a very meaningful role. He is now followed by her brother (Amol Gupte) who is a gangster. On the other hand Charlie is here only for money. He is into betting, racing and killing someone for a lakh.

In the first half of the film the characters are established. The story takes a dramatic turn towards the interval. The expectations are high and the eagerness builds. It is a bit slow in the middle which might not be liked by the masses. ‘Kaminey’ is a film for the classes.

From the very beginning till the end Bharadwaj places the events with such an ease that we are amazed as the end gives a wonderful blast. It is a very difficult film to execute and if not for Vishal Bharadwaj it would have been a mess. The music by the director himself is superb and the background score enhances the feel of the movie. Cinematography by Tassadug Hussain is visually very appealing. Dialogues by Bharadwaj are mind blowing. The editing is top class not a single spot can be pointed out.

‘Kaminey’ definitely has an effect. When you walk out you will be wondering about the series of events that happened. It is definitely a very smart thriller. Shahid’s acting can is par excellence and Priyanka Chopra has well justified the maharashtrian mulgi. Amol Gupte has done a very good job. Chandan Roy Sanyal, Tenzing Nima, Shiv Subramaniam, Hrishikesh Joshi have acted to their perfection.

Overall a very well made movie and a cool watch. Some spacing in the movie would have helped. But Bharadwaj with his lead actors Shahid and Priyanka and an amazing script is sure to pull it off.

Verdict: Logical Masala
