Finally Karan Johar realized that he has to stop giving audience the emotional drama of shahrukh weeping with co-actress/es. Dostana, a different Karan Johar movie for sure!
More humour, unique storyline and different set of actors too.. Not all songs are great as it used to be in his previous films.
Sam (Abhishek) and Kunal (John) happened to meet each other a few times before they realize they both are in search of a house. They both land up visiting a 3 bedroom flat on the same day same time and the land lady (priyanka’s aunt) denies to give it to any babas (men) as its only open for babies (ladies); because they will have to share the house with Priyanka! They both fall in love with the house so much that they want to start living in it at any cost. Now how? Sam gives this wonderful idea of both him and Kunal acting like a gay couple without really letting the outside world know! And they both haven’t seen Priyanka yet.
They both admit to the landlady that they are gay couple thinking her niece is another ugly figure like the mausi.. Guess what they are wrong! Obviously itz Priyanka. Guys you are too late. You have already admitted that you are gay and no way you can take it back and manage to stay in the same house. So now better continue to act like gay couple and live along with her. The actual comedy starts from here as to what all pranks they have to pull in, what stories they have to cook up and with what difficultly they have to act desperate for each other to prove that they are gay! That’s so much fun.. All three becomes best of friends. Abhishek is hilarious, he has done a real good job. John has beaten salman khan in exposing. I feel he has over done it..
In the process as expected, both starts liking Priyanka. And now they can’t reveal the truth nor can they continue to lie! They both even applied for permanent residency as gay couple (as the approval process is faster in getting PR). So lot of drama happens that way and you will find a new entry Bobby Deol as Priyanka’s boss, the one whom Priyanka hates initially. Anyway Bobby ensures he appreciates her work and gives her all that she was expecting professionally.. So its quite natural for Priyanka to fall in love with Bobby who has a 5 year old son already (don’t ask me about his wife, it was never discussed).
Its time for Jagda.. Jealousy sets in.. Sam and Kunal want to do everything possible to ensure that Priyanka and Bobby are not together. Ok, no more dragging its just 2.5 hrs movie. So finally Sam and Kunal admit to Priyanka all their mistakes and apologise. Now there is a condition put by Bobby on behalf of Priyanka that only if Sam and Kunal kiss each other in front of the big crowd, Priyanka will forgive them. Common movie is over.. yup, they kissed each other finally. Priyanka is proud to get back to her friends after the forgiving formalities J That is Dostana for you!!
I am still surprised why did Karan Johar chose this subject.. do you have any idea? He could have taken either Abhishek or John's role himself as it comes quite naturally to him :-)))
