About the Story
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective, Sherlock Holmes first appeared in print in 1887. Though more than 120 years old, this deductive detective still makes us sit up in our seats and listen.
So in the 1980s, ex-IIT-ians of the Dramatech theatre club put together a Hindi adaptation of Sherlock Holmes’ last book, The Valley of Fear. Ravi Raj Sagar directed Dost Ya Dushman? and recreated the story in an Indian context. The names changed and so did the locations, but the spirit of the story remained the same.
Find out who murdered Suman Anand, the wealthy man of Sonapur in the dead of the night. The cold-blooded killer had the nerve to shoot Mr. Anand from point-blank range. Why would anyone do that?
