Kaminey - Notepad

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

Though Kaminey is directed in style it's still a typical gangster plot and is superficially written too. The focus on details of the shallow characters is sorely missing. Punch is forced into dialogue delivery to mask the lame lines. However, Shahid-Priyanka do well.

Plot Summary

Twins Charlie and Guddu/Sanjay (Shahid Kapoor) parted ways a long time ago. Charlie is employed by a bookie and Guddu is a simple NGO worker(?) who is in love with Sweety (Priyanka Chopra). Sweety is the local don, wannabe-politician's sister. The two worlds begin to meet but not in a very nice way.

What Worked

  • The fact that the songs didn't play as complete start-to-end songs as in the audio CD. They are spread through the film and are not necessarily played completely as you hear them on the audio CD.
  • The theme that "fatak" is about.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • How did the Bangla brother's find out where the rest of the cast of the film were engaged in a war?
