Inspired by Hollywood yet with a unique and distinct flavor, this movie is up there with the likes of Tarantino and Guy Ritchie (think lock stock and two smoking barrels, snatch, la4er cake etc.) this is an extremely intelligent adaptation with an Indian twist, slicky produced, catchy soundtrack and a pace that will keep you at the edge of your seat.
This is an entertainer that is worth watching on the big screen- go and get your ticket NOW!

This is not your "typical" Bollywood fare. This is true cinema. The filmakers have tried imitate the likes of Quentin Tarantino and Guy Ritchie and have done so beautifully. The visuals are gritty and rough and in keeping with the right "feel" for the story. The story has many twists and turns and keeps you on your toes. A great watch. The two main characters, both portrayed flawlessly by Shahid Kapoor, are multi-layered. They are identical twins and complete opposites. There are too many great characterizations to go into here. Each character is unique and complex. Vishal Bhardwaj has done a stellar job in putting this film together from the casting, to the cinematography, to the music, to the editing and last but certainly not least the art of story telling. This is a film not to be missed if you are lover of film as an art form. Certainly the best Hindi film I have seen and definitely on my list of all time favorites.

The story is no different from the regular flicks but the taking of it is what makes the movie special. Mr. Bharadwaj did a great job stitching the entire movie together. The combination of lisp and stammer along with fast story pace ensured audience attention. Unlike regular bollywood movie, only required scenes to the movie have been pictured and demands people don 'thinking cap'.
Shahid was at his best while Priyanka did well. Rest of the crew managed their roles. Story begins with the introduction of two twins. One is a middle class righteous guy who has set goals for his entire life. He marries Priyanka Chopra only to realize that her brother is ridiculous politician. Other twin wants to earn money in very little time and resort to races. He accidentally gets hold of ten crores worth of cocaine that belongs to underworld gang. All hell breaks loose when politician and local goons with the help of cops try to catch the respective twins.
On the whole, movie is treat to watch.
