Critic Reviews for Dostana
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.April 30, 2019 | Full Review…
The director is obviously confused. The second half dips badly and he resolves the mess with a senseless copout of a climax.January 31, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
It's innocuous candyfloss.
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.May 2, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
It irreverently normalizes a topic that has been virtually absent from screens in India (where gay sex is still technically illegal), and does so using contemporary Bollywood's best not-so-secret weapon: star power.
The best and funniest Bollywood film I've seen in a very long time.

Apr 30, 2010This was enjoyable. But some part was boring. Not bad though.Dead A Super Reviewer
Apr 28, 2010Very fun. The time flew by, the songs and soundtrack were great, the story was fun (although mostly predictable). All in all i greatly enjoyed it. What did this movie teach me? Brown men can be VERY attractive!Sarah . Super Reviewer
Jan 17, 2010When Sameer (Abhishek Bachchan) and Kunal (John Abraham) are turned down for an apartment because the landlady doesn't want two strapping young men to corrupt her young sexy niece Neha (Priyanka Chopra) they go to plan 'G' - they pretend to be 'Gay' to secure the apartment. All is well till they meet the sexy siren Neha and thus begins a journey of fun frolic and a test of friendship like never before. When Neha's boss Abhimanyu (Bobby Deol) enters the fray as the third contender for her affections, it gets even hotter under everyone's vests and bikinis and the boys get down and dirty in sunny Miami. The viewers were already offered the "Gay" stuff by Dharma Productions' in "Kal Ho Naa Ho", but that was just the trailer. But this time, Dharma Productions' brings to you the whole feature film of the "G" stuff. Not that the movie promotes the "G' factor but it does have it as the main factor of the movie. Firstly, the story seems to be quite a rip off from the comedy of the Hollywood, "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry", but to tell you the truth, the story is quite different. There is just one similarity & i.e. the lead actors pretend that they are gay. The movie does makes you laugh with all it's gay stuff. Specially Abhishek Bachchan, he does a fantastic stuff, pretending as a gay. John was okay, neither good, nor bad. Priyanka Chopra looks stunning & performs well. Her bikini look would blow every guy's mind (except for some of the exceptions). Kiron Kher & Boman Irani had small roles but they were impressive. Bobby Deol was okay. Shilpa Shetty's seductive item song in the opening credits works well. The new director makes a good comedy & romantic flick. The music is foot tapping & is already a hit. Not only the movie clicks because of it's humor, but also does works wonders because we rarely get a worthy movie these days in Bollywood & "Dostana" is pure entertainment. Go for this "G" stuff & laugh all the way. A sexy movie.Abhilash S Super Reviewer
Aug 14, 2009Decent performances but some of the lengths that the two main characters go to really diminish the sympathy you feel towards them and it hurts the picture, The actress playing Sam's mother is a riot though.jay n Super Reviewer
