Its a shame Sudhir Kumar and Shushil Kumar did not go beyond this mega block buster movie.
7 January 2011 | by bitsnumber1See all my reviews

Great acting , Great songs , Perfect direction ..A master class of old Indian Cinema The two actors Sudhir Kumar and Shushil Kumar have performed as if they were born to play the role mind blowing music that brought out quite possibly Mohd. Rafi sa'ab's memorable classics like - "Chahoonga Mein Tujhe..." , "Jaane Waalon Zara..." etc Its a shame these 2 talents did not go beyond this mega block buster movie.

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 is quite unbelievable What is best about Dosti is the music --- just mesmerizing .
