Where did you watch this movie?

This fiery and intense drama revolves around Guddu and Charlie, identical twins born and raised in the slums of Mumbai. They dream of leaving the squalor behind and moving into a life of prosperity and dignity. Though they look alike, the two are as different as chalk and cheese: one lisps while the other stammers; one is an honest, diligent social worker while the other hedges bets at a racecourse. The brothers want nothing to do with each other, but when Charlie gets mixed up in a deadly get-rich-quick scheme and Guddu realizes that the love of his life has unwittingly put a price on his head, their lives begin to collide. Faced with rogue politicians, drug dealers and crooked cops, they uncover a sinister plot laid out by the 'political-police-underworld' nexus. Their stories finally converge to a point when they realize they only have each other. Will the brothers finally unite to save each other?

Trivia:
During a scriptwriting workshop held by Mira Nair in Uganda, Cajetan Boy, a young, Kenyan writer from Nairobi, showed Vishal Bhardwaj a script about twin brothers from the city's slums and the events that occur in their lives during a 24-hour period. Three years later, Bhardwaj asked Boy to sell him the idea, and he later bought the script for US$ 4,000. Then other original elements were added to the movie.

Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor fell off a bike while shooting for Kaminey. The accident took place in Pune late Thursday (21st August 2008) while a scene that required Priyanka to ride a bike with Shahid on the back seat was being shot. The two were riding the bike on a slope that was slightly muddy when the two-wheeler skidded and the two fell off. And to make matter worse, the bike fell on top of them.

While shooting for this movie, Priyanka Chopra travelled in a local train from Goregaon to Churchgate to attend the award ceremony (at NCPA, Nariman Point) which was scheduled post the shoot. Since Priyanka was aware of Mumbai's traffic jam, she preferred travelling by train and wore a "burkha" to hide her identity. The organisers of the awards ceremony sent a car to pick her up from the Churchgate station.

This movie showcases Amole Gupte as an actor after a long time. He has acted small roles in many movies like Mirch Masala, Holi, etc. He is also famous for his paintings showcased in opening credits of "Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Maa". Recently, he wrote the screenplay & was the Creative Director for Like Stars on Earth (2007)

Shahid Kapoor worked out for six months and took lessons in stammering from an ENT specialist to fit into his roles in the film.

For the choreography of the song sequence "Dhan-Te-Nan" in the film, the actors were briefed to "just dance with the song but not to do any (dance) steps in it"

The kissing scene between Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra was originally not in the script, but the director decided to add it because he thought the movie was starting to look outdated and boring, along with the fact that Guddu's character mostly revolves around the fact that Sweety was pregnant.

Priyanka Chopra did not want to do the kiss in the film. So she had the director shoot the entire scene without the kiss until she could make up her mind. However Shahid Kapoor was a gentleman about it and said that he'd only do it if she felt comfortable, so she finally agreed.
