Vishal Bhardwaj’s Kaminey is ready for release. And like us, if you are dying to know what is Vishal upto this time, here is some dope. has the film’s synopsis…

kamineyGuddu (Shahid Kapoor) and Charlie (Shahid Kapoor) are brothers, born and raised in Dharavi, the world’s largest slum dwelling in the heart of the megalopolis, Mumbai.

They also happen to be identical twins, in early twenties, hoping to leave the squalor behind and move into a life of prosperity and dignity. But the similarity ends here.

Guddu works as a trainee in a small NGO firm in the city. He hopes to climb up to the top of the corporate ladder. He wants to be a bona fide member of the burgeoning Indian middle class. His career has only just begun though and the road to bourgeoisie is both long and arduous. Yet Guddu is at it. He is honest, diligent and careful. Especially careful.

Charlie makes a living hedging bets at the race course. He moves around the plush hordes of the rich and famous at the races. For him this is just a way to make quick money and he dreams of becoming a legitimate bookie one day. Charlie is street smart, wily and brave. And only for himself.

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.

All that is about to change. In one day. A day of reckoning. An unusual day; just right for the unusual events that unfold in its course.

Credits – Directed by Vishal Bhardwaj (Maqbool, Omkara, Makdee, The Blue Umbrella), Kaminey stars Shahid Kapur (in a double role), Priyanka Chopra as a middle-class Marathi girl and Amole Gupte (writer of Taare Zameen Par) in a negative role.
