Vishal Bhardwaj's Kaminey is important for more than just the obvious reasons. It is the first time real-life 'good friends', Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor are coming together on screen. In fact, they became friends on the sets of this film, though they live in the same apartment complex.
Very little is known about the film except that Shahid has a double role and PC plays a Maharastrian mulgi. It is the story of identical twins Guddu and Charlie born and raised in Dharavi. The boys who are in their early twenties, hope to leave the squalour behind and move to a life of prosperity and dignity. But the similarity ends here. Guddu hopes to climb to the top of the corporate ladder. Charlie makes a living hedging bets at the race course.
For him this is just a way to make quick money and he dreams of becoming a legitimate bookie one day. The brothers don't like each other. They believe they have nothing in common, not even their speech defect. While Guddu stammers, especially when he is nervous, Charlie has a lisp.
The brothers have built their lives so that their paths don't ever cross. They believe it's only a question of time before they are out of each other's sight forever. And then everything changes in one day.
