Karan (Bobby Deol) was wealthy and a mansion was his habitat. Raj (Akshay Kumar) had empty pockets and the sky was his roof. Karan's jet ensured that he could fly if he wanted. Raj could only depend on his two feet. Karan had a family and yet craved love. Raj had love to share, but craved a family. Karan was the eternal Casanova. Raj was the proverbial one-woman man. Karan had it all, and yet felt empty. Raj had nothing, but his heart was full. They were two people as different as can be.
Yet they found a common ground. One that led to the glorious road of Friendship!
Their bond was unshakable. If Karan gave Raj a home and all the material comforts, Raj gave Karan a shoulder and all the emotional security. If Karan supported Raj at every step, Raj covered up for all of Karan's misdoings. They laughed together, lied together, loved together and fought the odds together all in the name of friendship. Their blind faith in each other attracted the envy of the world. But it was this very world that never let them forget that theirs was not a relationship of equals. And how long could an unequal relationship sustain? But like a bolt out of the blue came a raging storm that threatened to sink the ship that housed the sentiments of the two friends.
Dosti has nothing new to offer. Its the story of two friends with strong friendship which falls apart due to mis-understanding. The film isn't a classic or path-breaking cinema by any standard. The film is entertaining at times and the director has handled the emotional and dramatic moments very nicely. Music is average. Cinematography [W.B. Rao] is eye-catching.
Performance wise Akshay Kumar and Bobby Deol both give a wonderful performance. Kareena Kapoor is good. Lara Dutta is wasted. Juhi Chawla is appealing in a brief role. Rest of the cast lend able support. On the whole Dosti has nothing new to offer and you can give it a miss.
