Don 2

Critic's Rating:  4*
Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Om Puri, Lara Dutta, Kunal Kapoor
Direction: Farhan Akhtar
Genre: Action
Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

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 Malaysian prison. 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).

Watched 3D Version of this Movie... liked the 1st Part Don [1978], den Remake, and now sequel 2 remake... DON Series is amazing, all 3 movies...

Don 2 - 95% it is SRK only in the movie, tailor made role, cut to cut, not even 1nce he make mistake or anything happens which is not in his plan... cool n jolly style DON, except for SRK everybody is Serious in movie... even he ask... sab itne serious kion hai, suddenly u realize that in movie every single person coming in contact with DON is having this huge image that Don is very dangerous, which Don uses smartly... fast paced action thriller, suspense... hardly 2 songs... SRK excel in this role from start to end, every second u r on edge as now he will do something which is unexpected... Farhan's Stylish Direction - Brilliant...

Some dialouges i like "On ur knees... Really... i am wearing white"... "main tum pe kisi tarah ka dabaav nahin dalna chahta" < situational dialouge "tumne dhyaan se suna nahin vardhaan, main TUM logon ka exit plan nahin banaya"...

In Climax when Vardhan ask Priyanka 2 shoot Srk, excellent scene... Flaws bhi hai movie mein but woh sab bahut saare members jo microscope leke jaate hai movie dekhne will post here...

Performances wise Srk n Hrithik did fab job... n little bit Lara, baaki saare normal, priyanka na bhi hoti toh bhi movie hit thi... 

Overall paisa vasool movie, go n watch it... Thumbs Up
thats good u liked it tooEmbarrassed
