Dosti - Friends Forever (2005)
(Released: Dec 23, 2005)
Karan Thapar (Bobby Deol) lives a wealthy yet very lonesome lifestyle with his businessman dad (Kiran Kumar), mom Kiran (Lillette Dubey), and sister Nandini, as no one has time for him. One day while at the family's farmhouse, he loses his step and almost falls down a deep gorge, but is rescued by Raj Malhotra (Akshay Kumar), who is an orphan, living a poor lifestyle with his abusive maternal uncle. Karan and Raj become inseparable friends, and Raj moves in to live with Karan, much to the chagrin of the Thapar family who shun and dislike Raj. Years later both Raj and Karan have matured, while Raj is in love with his childhood sweetheart, Anjali (Kareena Kapoor) and wants to marry her, while Karan flirts with Leena Bharucha (Sherlyn Chopra), and abandons her. Karan subsequently meets with London-returned Kajal Sharma (Lara Dutta), successfully woos and then gets her to agree to marry him. Both Raj's and Karan's wedding is planned on the same day, when things take a turn for the worse - when Leena and her dad, who is employed by Thapar, expose both friends as flirts - resulting in all-round acrimony - with Anjali getting married elsewhere; Kajal disappearing from Karan's life; and Raj, who wants to seek his very own identity, decides to leave Karan's life for good, leaving Karan alone with his loneliness and his newfound pal - alcohol.
