Karan Johar production's latest is Dostana, directed by Tarun Mansukhani . this is the first that Karan Johar steps out of his superstition with the word K and choose to make a film by the same name as the one his dad had once directed. if you want to watch an absolute entertainer, then this is it; but don't take your brains along because its a laugh riot and not some arty flick. music is somewhat good nothing great. but what grabs eyeballs is truly John Abrahim's butt, some hilarious performance by AB baby as the gay icon, Priyanka Chopra looking absolutely the babe who is smolderingly hot! and really good acting by Kiron Kher in a two bit role. this flick is not degrading the gay fraternity, but very sensitively handled by KJO, great punches and some really rib tickling performances. the movie is that of a feel good one, with its subtle emotions and all about friendship and love [in friendship] what probably could have been an outright cool and funny movie was marred by an unnecessary loose ending , and twist in the tale with a forceful gay kiss to prove friendship, that is truly ludicrous. but on the whole a great entertainer and will probably go on to be a hit!
my rating 3 on 5 [-.50 for the sagging ending]
