Dostana Movie Review
This is a one of those mindless comedies which could have been more entertaining if it hadn’t been for the insensitive and stereotypical portrayal of gays. The producers have gone on record saying that it is just a comedy and that the subject has been handled sensitively but this is debatable.
The movie is about two guys and a girl and is set in Miami. Right at the start of the movie Sam (Abhishek Bachchan) and Kunal (John Abraham) put on an act of being gays – all to get to share an apartment with beautiful Neha (Priyanka Chopra). The movie is centered around the comic situations which arise because of this pretense. The movie is worth seeing either/or you have nothing to do, like the actors concerned, like mindless comedies, are curious to see what Karan Johar has to say about gays, and want to make up your own mind as to whether gays are portrayed sensitively or not.
