About Friendship
17 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Kishan and Bishan are childhood friends. Kishan, a poor boy, stays in a village. Bishan goes to a city becomes captain of a ship. After many years when Bishan returns he discovers golden voice of his friend Kishan. He brings him to city with him and on all odds he plans a stage show for him. To train Kishan in urban manners he send him to a school run by Komal. After the show Kishan becomes very popular. However, some goons highjack Bishan's ship (with many childern aboard) Bishen tries to save them but then he is made to run away for his life. (A small role nicely payed by Kader Khan as Bishan's driver - who sacrifices his life for Bishan). Bishan is presumed dead, though actually he looses his mental balance after seeing the children tortured). How Kishan now pays back to Bishans family is rest of the story.

As Bishan, Amzad Khan perhaps played his one of most sincere roles in this movie. Amitabh is polished, and a village baffoon in city his comedy is superb. Tanuja is her small role makes an impact.

Rajesh Roshan has given good music and the song "Choo kar mere man ko kiya tune kya ishaara...", and this song is apt fot this movie too.
