Nowadays where films have only blood and corpses around, Vishal Bharadwaj has designed Kaminey with a good sense of direction which is comfortable to the audience.

Plot

Shahid Kapoor tries something new for the first time- double role. On one side he’s the bad, rowdy boy who lisps and hedges bets at the race course while on the other hand he’s good, sweet and an honest worker who stammers. They both live in two different worlds totally apart. Their lives aren’t connected by any thread until one of them gets involved in a deadly quick rich scheme, and the other realises that the love of his life has put a price on his head.
Will they both ever meet each other? Or will they be estranged forever? Watch this thriller to discover the suspense.

Analysis

Once in a blue moon comes a film that forces you to stick to your seat and wish the movie goes on and on, and when it comes to an end, you want just to get up and salute the entire team of the movie. And one such movie is Kaminey. The twists and turns that Vishal Bharadwaj has shown is commendable and deserves applaud.  A thriller but with subtle scenes, well-composed music and witty dialogues is a complete package one looks up to. 

Star Performances

Shahid Kapoor definitely needs a pat on his back for his wonderful performance, while Priyanka Chopra plays a perfect Maharashtrian mulgi. Shahid’s double role characters give him a wide range of showcasing his acting skill.

What’s there?

1.    Soundtracks and the background score received positive reviews and added a lot of value to the film.
2.    Hussain’s cinematography is another gem of the film.
3. Costume designer, Dolly Ahluwalia has also done a great job with simple and sober outfits.
4.    The editing is top class, and the dialogues are well penned.

What’s not there?

Too many cinematic liberties.

Verdict

A movie like Kaminey is not easily relished by the people but once when it touches your taste buds; you're just not going to let it go.
Star Rating: 4/5
