More than watching Kaminey, the story of how I managed to watch Kaminey would make for an interesting piece of conversation, but then again..more than a conversation, visuals would have done better justice. Unfortunately or fortunately..somethings are best in the moment.
As for Kaminey, it probably deserves another watch. More so for missing the first ten minutes. Montages, realistic cinematography, some kickass performances..if you enjoy Vishal Bhardhawaj’s cinema..quick, slick, realish.
Use of old hindi movie songs along with the background score is done, but still stands out, its how one does it, I guess. And it works..its timed very well, and seems to go with the scenes. Piggy Chops looks like a Maharashtrian to the T. If she walks on the roads in Mumbai like that, she’d never be recognised.
Shahid Kapoor has overdone his body. But he is the cream of Kaminey. Especially with the ‘main F ko F bolta hoon’.
Watch out for the shot of crows before a montage, in the second half of the film. I still can’t get over that shot. Sheer awesomeness.
