Dostana Reviews

Only when Tarun [Mansukhani] gets emotion in, does the film start to drag. Mistake, because no one does tears like Karan. Ignore those bits, stay with the fun ones, and get laughing.

The director is obviously confused. The second half dips badly and he resolves the mess with a senseless copout of a climax.

Good taste, pop colour Miami locations, high-end costumes, make-up styling and the A-grade Dharma Productions values add up to a zingy entertainer.

It's all done with an infectious zest and effervescence that keeps the ribs tickling.

If you want a laugh, a good time out with friends, and some eye candy, Dostana is for you. If you are looking for a gay movie, this is not the right choice.

Overall, this film is a mixed bag. Although there are comical moments, they're mostly variations on one joke. And that one joke is entirely dependent on caricature.

The best and funniest Bollywood film I've seen in a very long time.

Pic is largely sustained by the trio's screen chemistry, with Bachchan especially good at the louche comic stuff.

Cross I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry with the all-but forgotten 1970s farce The Gay Deceivers, then dress it up with elaborate musical sequences: Et voila!

Big, colorful, delightfully dumb Bollywood "gateway" movie could be a perfect crossover vehicle for U.S. audiences.

A pure star vehicle, gliding along on charm and timing -- exactly the sort of comfort cinema Hollywood now seems incapable of making.

By turns exuberant and goofy and mushy and yearning.

This is a great, fun entertainer with lots of charm and great music.
