The film begins with an engagement and ends in marriage.

5. What is the engagement song in Dosti called?
a. Dulhaniya dulhaniya

Wrong! Try again..
Wrong! The correct answer is A. The 1964 film called Dosti starred Sudhir Kumar as a blind boy and Sushil Kumar as a cripple. There was another Dosti made in 1971, and even such films as Darpok Ki Dosti (1982), Dosti Dushmani (1986) and Dosti Ki Saugandh (1993). For our film-wallahs, friendship is, apparently, as common a subject as marriage.
