Kaminey has some catchy, funny original dialogues for sure. An example
इस दुनिया में कुत्ते का एक ही जवाब होता है – कमीने
It is unfair to not like the movie because it is not an “Omkara” or a “Maqbool”. Its not the same genre. And the genre it is from, it is a well executed movie. Pretty tight. I am not too much into the crime-comedy genre. So, I don’t have elaborate observations.
But acting is fantastic. And it feels great to observe that Shahid Kapoor is arriving as an actor. He is not just good as the rich or upper-middle class lover boy, he is equally at ease as a Mumbai gangster. And he has played the twin brothers – very different from each other – effortlessly. Unlike Saif Ali Khan as young sardar in Love Aaj Kal, neither of Shahid Kapoor’s roles look like it is forced on him. If he continues to choose wisely and experiments enough, we are looking at the next great actor probably. Priyanka Chopra and other actors have done well too.
So, definitely worth a watch.
