Shahid's two characters in the film Guddu and Charlie are completely opposite from each other. While Charlie has a lisp, Guddu would be seen stammering. Not much is known about the individual characters but it is learnt that one works as an executive in a corporate job and the other seems to be living life on the edge indulging in betting and other such nefarious activities.
The most interesting aspect of Kaminey is the fresh pairing of Shahid and Priyanka Chopra. The two actors share screen space for the first time and if the promos are any indication, then expect to see some sparks on screen.
Priyanka Chopra who is currently on a high after her award winning act in Fashion and Dostana would be seen in a completely different get-up this time round. Priyanka plays Sweety, a simple Maharashtrian girl and hence would be seen dressed in simple Indian dresses like salwar kameez and even the traditional Maharashtrian saree. The actress has even spoken quite a lot of Marathi in the film.
Kaminey is produced by UTV Motion Pictures. Most of the film has been shot in Mumbai and for a change Shahid Kapoor would be seen doing some action too. Amole Gupte, who wrote the story and screenplay of Taare Zameen Par makes his acting debut with this film. Amole would be seen as a comical don called Bhope Bhau who has quite a menacing laugh. Kaminey is among the most looked forward to films this year and is all set to release on 5th June.
Guddu and Charlie 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.
Charlie makes a living hedging bets at the racecourse. 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.
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.
But all that is about to change in one day.
Charlie is having a bad day at the office. He has practically bet everything he possesses on a coveted derby race. But at the last minute, he is double crossed as the race is fixed in their opponent's favour. He hunts down the jockey and plans to get even when the rival goons burst in. In the ensuing melee, Charlie and friends take off with a getaway car. Not knowing that the car belongs to a ruthless pair of cops, LOBO and LELE, who run drugs for the beach lord, TASHI. Soon enough, Charlie discovers a stash of coke in the boot of the car. All hell now breaks loose as the cops and the drug mafia gets after his case. Charlie has to survive.
Guddu is performing a street theatre act when his newfound girlfriend, Sweety BHOPE appears on the scene, distraught and announces that she is pregnant. Guddu is shocked at first but realizes quickly that there is no real problem. They can get married right away! They can't.
