Friendships are among the most complex but meaningful relationships in our lives. These unique bonds often run deeper than family ties, and sometimes last longer than our relationships with spouses or lovers. A great example of complex yet meaningful friendship can be seen in ‘Dostana’.
In ‘Dostana’, we see a very “close” friendship between Sameer Kapoor (Abhishek Bachchan) and Kunal Chopra. They first meet each other while looking to rent an apartment in Miami. The owner refuses to sublet it to them because her niece, Neha Melwani (Priyanka Chopra), stays in the same apartment and she does not want men living there with her. So to win over the owners trust, the boys pretend to be a couple in a long-term relationship. Their comrade from there blossoms and they also become good friends with Neha.
The movie has some very intense scenes, which will make you want to spill your guts out laughing. Kunal and Sameer pull off quite a few quirky scenes but at no point is their masculinity compromised by their intense relationship.
Kunal and Sameer find themselves falling for Neha but decide to play a fair game for her love. However, the mischievous Kunal tricks Sameer into spending the night with Neha's aunt and her friends while he takes Neha out on a date. Many of us can relate to the friendship shared between Sameer and Kunal and all their funny antics. Don’t we all have that one friend who we do crazy things with? Like the scene where Kunal and Sameer kiss on stage? Well maybe not that crazy, but we all had our fair share of similar experiences. It’s funny what people do in the name of friendship but that’s what makes a friendship even more special!
On its 6th year anniversary we would love to take a trip down memory lane and remember all those funny-quirky moments shared between the Sameer, Kunal & Neha. Join us in the celebration and watch the movie again for a barrel of laughs and giggles. Tell us your favorite moments from the film in the comments below.
