A Classic Film
23 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I first watched this movie when I was a teenager, and I have never forgotten the intense emotions that I felt. Dosti is my all-time favourite film; I have not seen another that has left me with a deeper impression. The story-line, at times, was quite unbelievable, but then this was Indian film-making. What is best about Dosti is the music --- just mesmerizing --- thirty years after I first heard it, it still resound in my ears, even though I have not heard it again till recently. And after years of searching, I finally managed to purchase a DVD of the film; unfortunately the quality isn't very good, and a great part of the English subtitles (I don't understand Hindhi) was missing. If anyone out there knows of where I can get a good quality DVD of the film with English subtitles, I would appreciate hearing from you.
