At-last I had watched – but sadly disappointed!
A strange to know but I agree that Kaminey is a good movie, a brilliantly executed one but not a great movie.
What works for the movie?
1. Shahid and Priyanka are outstanding but so are host of other small characters like Tashi and Mikhail.
2. The music is very good, blends amazingly with the background without being noticed.
3. The camera-work is very crisp and gives the movie the edgy feeling.
What doesn't work for movie?
1. A relatively poor script! After Maqbool and Omkara, I had very high expectation from Vishal but this is clearly disappointing.
2. It has many Bollywood old clichés.
3. The script meanders along a predictable path and ends up in a dissatisfying climax.
4. It has gangsters, police, drug dealers and all kinds of shady people intertwining and crossing paths in the movie.
5. The movie tries to be smart but in the end all it manages is to be confusing and poorly put up together.
6. The main problem is that you don't connect with the characters and don't find any thing to relate with them. Having no emotional feel for the characters, it is difficult to get involved intensely with the movie.
7. Shahid Kapoor acts well while sadly Priyanka Chopra has a very small role in the movie.
8. Overall this is a very slick guy ritchie type movie where the hand-held camera is used to greater the effect.
But on the whole, it’s better than 99% movies which are releasing now-a- days.
I would rate: Just 3/5
