Dostana Bollywood Movie Review


A laughter riot, the story is set on the backdrop of the picturesque Miami where two friends Sameer (Abhishek) and Kunal (John) are on the lookout for an accommodation and they chance upon a suitable apartment. However, the problem is the landlady (Sushmita) of the apartment is totally against giving it out to two men since she has her hot and pretty niece Neha (Priyanka) with her and does not like men ogling at her. The duo uses their mind and comes up with a plan, they inform the landlady that they are gays and finally get the apartment. In no time, they become friends with Neha and as expected both of them fall for her. Just when they plan to confess their love for her, trouble arrives in the form of Abhimanyu (Bobby) who happens to be Neha's boss and guess what, even he is in love with Neha. What does Neha do? Who is the lucky one among the three? How do Sameer and Kunal solve the problems due to their 'gay' hood? All this forms the rest of the story.


Dostana Hindi Cinema Review


The director has come up with a rather daring subject in the most sensible way and though the narrative got a bit lengthy in the later stages, the presentation was perfect. The dialogues were written with lot of spice, the script was equally strong and the screenplay was executed brilliantly. Music was above average with three numbers to be taken home while the major credit goes to the camera department for mesmerizing capturing of the locales. Editing could have been a lot better during the second half but overall, it is alright. Abhishek has become the real show stealer in the movie with his perfect sense of comic timing and he has shown his real funny side. John on the other hand has simply stumped everyone with his amazing physique and not stopping at that, he has pulled off a good one with his performance too. Priyanka looked the perfect girl for the role and she has done full justice while Bobby was the best man around though his role was brief, he was a true revelation. Sushmita was superb, Boman was mind blowing and the rest did their bit to the required standard.


Dostana Filem Review


It takes a lot of courage to invest so much money into a subject that is quite a taboo among the Indian folk but then the makers have wrapped it carefully and filled it with fun and comedy in the right places. While the first half is a complete rocker with out and out comedy, the second half is more on the serious side with the romantic angle but then it got a bit too lengthy though there are few places where the humor is again unleashed. The climax is worth a watch and could raise a possible debate amongst many. Technically and commercially, the film has success written all over it and it might well be the relief giver to the ailing industry. Well done folks!!!

Bharatstudent verdict :
Hilarious treat, strongly recommended for younger audience!!!
