Charlie (Shahid Kapur)
Makes a living hedging bets at the race course; he moves around the plush hordes of the rich and famous and aspires to be one of them, one day! Charlie is street sharp, wily and ballsy. But for himself, only!
Guddu (Shahid Kapur)
Works as a trainee in an NGO firm; his dream is to become a bonafide member of the Indian middle class. A careerist at heart, which in turn, he loses to the charming Sweety. Guddu is honest, diligent and careful. Especially very careful!
Sweety (Priyanka Chopra)
Young, pretty and fiery, Sweety Shekhar Bhope has all the trappings of an absolute firecracker. For someone who's always lived in the shadow of her despot brother, she finds true solace in Guddu's arms.
Bhope (Amole Gupte)
A small time gangster turned rogue politician. He fancies himself as the messiah of the slums. A 'son of the soil', his rabid racism and freestyle vandalism has earned him his true reputation.
Lobo-Lele (Shiv Subrahmanyam and Hrishikesh Joshi)
There are bad cops, there are crooked cops and then there's these two. Two top-notch narcotics officers, they are the brutal law of the land. Law, which is of the mafia and for the mafia.
Mujeeb- Shumon (Deb Mukherjee and Rajatva Dutta)
Two of the most powerful bookies on the racing circuit. Horses, guns and women rule their passion. They have an unhealthy lust for power and money. Second only to their giddy love for their kid brother Mikhail.
Mikhail (Chandan Roy Sanyal)
Wild and reckless, nobody can tame this young colt. Mikhail dreams of being a bookie along with his best friend Charlie. The type of guy who acts before he thinks, then lives to pay for the consequences.
Tashi (Tenzing Nima)
A maverick drug lord, Tashi is the lord of high style and cold kills. A man of infinite patience, hell knows no bounds if he gets tickled down the wrong nerve.
Cajetan (Carlos Paca)
A rebel mercenary who will not flinch to pile up corpses to get what he wants. His deathly eyes can inspire fear in the bravest of men. Not to be crossed with.
"Kaminey" is about a pair of twin brothers, Charlie and Guddu. Charlie lisps while Guddu stammers. They are as different as chalk and cheese. And they can't stand the sight of each other.
Till one fateful rainy night, their lives cross. Charlie gets mixed up in a deathly get rich quick scheme, while Guddu realises that the love of his life, Sweety, has unwittingly put a price on his head.
It's a dark comic ride they on, as the brothers are sucked into a world of drugs, guns and money. Their lives collide head on with the lives of gangsters, rebel soldiers, rogue politicians and crooked cops.
In the middle of this crazy adventure, the brothers have to run to protect themselves, their dreams, their love....
And most importantly, realise that all that they have is each other.
