“Dost” title is like Halley’s comet. Halley’s comet is visible from the earth after every 86 years, and the title “Dost” can be seen after every 10 year, beginning from 1944. Thus we had the sigtings of movies called “Dost” in 1944, 1954, and 1974. In 1964, we got a title called “Dosti” instead of “Dost”.

Hindi movies called “Dost” seem to get released every decade. The first such movie was “Dost” (1944) and it had memorable music by Sajjad Hussain. In my days, another movie by this name, viz “Dost” (1974) was released which had memorable music by Laxmikant Pyarelal. There was no movie by this name in 1964, though there was a movie called “Dosti” (1964), which again had memorable songs composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.
