Jay Mamtora, was one of the first few to watch Don 2 in UK and he was kind enough to share some interesting details on the film. Here is our analysis on his Don 2 review that was published just a few minutes back.

When a film is over-promoted – as was the case with Ra One – it makes it pretty evident that the makers are not confident of their product and are trying to cash-in on the initial weekend to recover most of the films investment.

Don 2 was adequately promoted, infact the promotions were quite similar to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which was a good sign. As it turns out, the initial reviews from UK are all positive. The film has been liked, SRK's performance has received immense praise (even from those who are not die-hard SRK fans) and the second half has been liked more than the first, which is always a great sign.

Apart from SRK, who has received the maximum praise as Don, it's Boman Irani's performance that has been liked the most. Not many have liked Priyanka Chopra in Don 2.

Some reviews on the performances from Twitter

  • Will Sheppard says "Watch Don 2 to see Shahrukh Khan and Boman Irani give amazing performances, priyanka do her usual rubbish"
  • Harika Chadha decreased her Don 2 rating by 0.5 because of Priyanka's performance: "brilliant acting and outstanding dialogues 9.5/10 (- 0.5 for Priyanka Chopra)"

Moving on, Hrithik Roshan seems to have a 5 minute role, which won't be revealed as it might ruin the suspense element.

The 3D version of Don 2 also seems to have come out well – "the 3D was effective and was very well done".

The Don 2 runtime is approximately 2 hours 20 minutes and the film has only one song, which is again great. The last thing you'd want to see in a fast-paced action thriller is a typical Bollywood song-n-dance number. In Ra One, the three songs – Chammak Challo, Dildaara and Criminal – were all awesome tracks. But while watching the film, it looked pretty stupid.

Overall, a good film is what excites us the most and we can't wait to watch Don 2 now, with all the positive reviews coming in.

We have a lot more coming up. Our Don 2 review will be published on the day of the film's release. Do follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook for the latest updates.

Update: Few more Don 2 reviews coming in..

  • Aashish: Watched Don 2.. SRK at his best.. scintillating action movie with beautifully penned script.. way better than don…4 stars out of 5..
  • LostMindinWood: Don 2, only one word Outstanding. Brilliant Acting, Brilliant Direction, Brilliant Story, Brilliant Screenplay, Brilliant Dialogue, Everything Brilliant
  • Sandi Hirani: Wot a wicked film! I wanaa c again!! Don 2 think theres a 3rd one soon.. picture abhi baakhi hain mere dost, kyoun ke Don ko pakarna…..
  • Sandeep Nimmala: Don 2 very well crafted movie n technically superb. Farhan Akhtar and team made a super sequel must watch movie. Technically well made n off course @iamsrk rocked as usual
  • Prashant R: Just finished watching Don 2 and all I can say is Shahrukh Khan is the man! Priyanka Chopra looking hot as ever (feisty) and Boman Irani boh saras
  • Javed Kana: Just like the last scene of Don 2, SRK has the last laugh closing 2011. A brilliant performance. Trust me, you will forget all about Ra.One after watching Don 2.
  • Tejalini to Farhan Akhtar: Watched Don 2 n left speechless… amazing work u have done!! loved it hepzzz.. best wishes from fiji… :) it shall be a blockbuster!!! :)
  • Dheeraj: Don 2 3D is wasted! Some illogical bits but high octane sequences, loving SRK's witty lines & great Hrithik cameo!
  • AdzLOWD: Everyone should go watch Don 2 in 3d its sick, even though I had to read the subtitles

Update Two: We also asked Jay Mamtora about the repeat-value and this is what he said "I would watch it again but with Don 1 – as you might miss some of the wit and banter and I missed some bits of the plot. ".

If it does indeed carry good repeat-value, then get set for a box-office monster!

times of india : Don2 review 4 stars Clap

Story: Don ( Shah Rukh Khan) is back, with characteristic savior faire. This time he has a monumental heist plan where he wants to steal the currency plates of the Euro from a high security vault in Berlin and disappear into the horizon as a free bird. Does he succeed? Specially when there is hot cop Roma ( Priyanka Chopra) doggedly chasing him... 

Movie Review: Don 2 is a classic action/crime thriller that doesn't let go, even for a moment. More importantly, the plot has been finely crafted, with every twist and turn falling into place like a complicated albeit neat little jigsaw. With a canvas that goes on a cross-country ride -- Thailand, Malaysia, Zurich, Berlin -- the film challenges you to hop aboard its high speed scuttle and attentively follow the exploits of its glamorous gangster. One who oscillates between two avatars -- Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible) and James Bond -- without losing out on his desi charisma. 

The high point of the film is Shah Rukh's delineation of the character of the Don. The actor interprets him as an arrogant, agile, wicked and wild dare-devil who has the most bizarre schemes up his sleeves. But that's not all. He also has the chutzpah to carry them through. Taking off from the climax of the first film, the gangster resurfaces in Thailand after a suitable time span, creates mayhem and then, in an unprecedented and inexplicable move, surrenders before his old enemies (cop Roma), only to be sent to a Malaysianprison. Get ready for a breath taking prison-break sequence, where our maverick escapes with another old foe, Vardhan ( Boman Irani). The rest of the film is essentially the execution of a meticulous plan where the duo chooses to rob the Germans of their currency plates. Easier said than done, but with the devious Don, rest assured, no mission is an impossible mission. Shah Rukh remains in command and never loses his foothold, neither through the dramatic sequences nor through the action cuts. But of course, didn't we know the actor always loved playing wicked despite his romantic hero image. Remember Darr and Baazigar, two of his unforgettable films? 

Action is the other alluring selling point of Farhan Akhtar's film. The chases, the fights, the demolition, destruction, break-ins, escapes have all been done with a finesse that rivals the best of Hollywood. Watch the car chase between Priyanka and Shah Rukh and you'll get the point. It's not only high voltage that drips with passion which makes it seem almost like foreplay. The other notable sequences include the heist, the escape and Shah Rukh's larger-than-life leap from a high-rise while his assassin wrings his hands in dismay. 

The film does lack a bit on the emotional quotient and human relationships are hardly given a chance to grow. But just when you think it's all sound and fury, there's a sensuous tango between Roma and the Don as the cop opts to help the gangster she once loved and the gangster is determined to save his junglee billi (wild cat), any which way. A word about the dialogues: brilliant. A word about the music: mediocre (Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy).

A superb movie...

SRK and Boman were fantastic. Others are ok but PC disappoints.

PC could have done better.

Farhan's direction is top class..take a bow Farhan..

Movie will work well, but I don't think it will work among people who like bodyguard, ready type of masala punches and dancing.

Movie is for classes..and urban masses..

Farhan is one of the best directors , just wow..
