Dostana

I am a bit behind with my “Must see movies” list, but I can’t be blamed. Bollywood is well known for its 300 (or more) movies per year. And that’s way more then I can watch in a lifetime.

I know most Bollywood stars more from reading about them on the Internet rather than seeing their movies. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not.

Even so, I managed to watch my first ever movie with Priyanka Chopra: Dostana.

I LOVED IT!!! I guess that sums it up.

Seriously, I think the last movie which I liked so much was “Om Shanti Om”. But this is even better, because it’s funny from start to end. And John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan make such a good pair.

I must admit I liked Abhishek more, because he had the silliest parts in the movie. And, along with his fictional mother (played by Kiron Kher), he gave me the best laughter I had in months.

As I was saying, this is the first movie with Priyanka Chopra and I am amazed. She is really good at acting. But, it couldn’t be that hard to play a stunning woman, living in a beautiful apartment and having a dream job when that’s very close to how she is in real life. I’m not aware of her living accommodations, but I know for sure she’s stunning and has a dream job.

Word is that “Dostana 2” is in the making, but without any of the main cast (Priyanka will make a cameo in the sequel). I guess that’s only fair since the original story had a nice closure. And, it’s very common in Bollywood for the main actors not to be in the sequel (opposite to Hollywood).

And, just to end this on a right note, here’s a video with Mrs. Acharya (Kiron Kher) trying to make her “gay” son (Abhishek Bachchan) straight:
