Movie Review: Dostana

Dostana-777969Who in this world would drop a chance to see the premiere of one of the most awaited movies of the year. As soon as I got the passes, I called my friends n we were off to watch the premiere. And so as usual here goes my review, woooo what an experience.
Vishal-Shekhar’s music goes well with the mood of the film. Each and every song is awesum in its own way. If ‘Kuch Kam’ and ‘Khabar nahi’ provide the soothy feel, ‘Maa Da Ladla’, ‘Jaane Kyun’ and Shut up n Bounce’ and ‘Desi Girl’ are the Rockerssssssssss of the movie.

DOSTANA is a truly ‘ Hatke’ movie with ample shock-value since what has been witnessed in its promos is barely a fraction of what you’d get to watch in the movie. But more than shock-value, the film offers loads of fun-n-laughter and dollops of entertainment.

Karan Johar, the producer, deserves to be lauded for treading the untrodden path. It requires courage and conviction to swim against the tide in your directorial debut. Tarun Mansukhani, the debutante, deserves a few brownie points extra for not thinking straight. It requires courage for two A-list actors to go all out and risk their professional [and personal] lives. Abhishek and John deserve an ovation for not only agreeing to play these characters, but also infusing life in them, without making a mockery of the gay community.

Both Abhishek and John are fantabulous! Abhishek pulls out all the stops and delivers one of the finest performances of his career. His comic timing is superb! John will make guys and girls drool over his amazing physique. But, most importantly, people will sit up and notice how fine an actor John is. Both Abhishek and John compliment each other so well. In fact, had the chemistry and camaraderie been missing, the story would’ve failed to look convincing. Thumbs up for them. Priyanka looks stunning and delivers a first-rate performance. As I said in my review of Fashion, Priyanka is back and how.
Bobby Deol lends the required class to his role. No other actor would’ve looked so real while underplaying this character. I hope he gets some good roles after this as he is one of the most underrated actors. Boman Irani is just amazing and rocks with his comedy. Kirron Kher is superb as the Punjabi mom. 
DOSTANA rocks… have a blast!


Rating – 4/5
