Dil Dosti Etc. (Heart, Friendship, et cetera) is a 2007 Bollywood film starring Shreyas Talpade, Imaad Shah, Nikita Anand, Smriti Mishra, Ishita Sharma and Dinesh Kumar in lead roles. It is directed by Manish Tiwary and produced by Prakash Jha.The movie got mixed reviews on its release and was successful in multiplex theatres in Delhi and some parts of Mumbai.

Synopsis[edit]

Dil Dosti Etc. explores the ambiguities of the youth years. The movie is about coming of age of Apurv (Imaad Shah), a rich, aimless and cynical 18-year-old young man, who has just entered college in Delhi. Juxtaposed against the aimlessness of Apurv is also the story of Sanjay Mishra (Shreyas Talpade), an ambitious Bihari student & politician with limited means. They represent two divergent world views—the liberal versus the conservative, the no-strings attached versus the committed, the elite versus the middle-class. Directionless and laidback, Apurv searches for meaning in life through amorous escapades with different girls, including a sex-worker Vaishali (Smriti Mishra) and a school girl Kintu (Ishita Sharma). Meanwhile Sanjay works single-mindedly to win the college Presidential elections, and yet catches the attention of a rich model Prerna (Nikita Anand). Dil Dosti Etc. is woven together with an ensemble of other characters, who have their own stories to tell. Set against all these is a silly wager that the two protagonists engage in. Sanjay will win the elections and Apurv will manage to have sex with three women in a day. As the film moves towards a volatile climax, you get to test the film’s premise, when you’re young, you believe the possibilities are endless.

Reception[edit]

Martin D'Souza, of Glamsham.com noted that, Minor flaws apart, college students are going to identify with this flick and I suspect there will be mass bookings in the days to come.[1] Nikhat Kazmi of Times of India rated the movie 2 out of 5 stars and opined that, "The film's too slow and the scene's are too repetitive and you do get the feeling things aren't really going anywhere. But wait patiently, and the mood will catch up".[2]
