Review: DON 2 !!!

            506th BLOG POST -->>



       When you are in a great doubt about a movie, you usually skip watching it. I am different or you can say I am weird. I don't skip it. I have local theater in my area which is named "Rupali Magic". I watch a movie with some carpenters, painters, beggars, hawkers, sweepers and servants in Rs. 60 at Rupali Magic. :-) . I get to smell a weird fragrance of the Air-conditioner. I have seen Kites and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara in this theater. Today, I went for DON 2 as I had a great doubt about this movie as SRK's last- Ra.One was almost killed by every audience's comment. The show was about to begin at 6.00 PM but it got postponed to 6.10 because some generator problem aroused. :-) I smiled at myself for choosing this epic theater to watch the last big release of 2011. Finally, the movie started with a voice of SRK in background and Yes, finally I caught DON who is being traced by all the police departments of this world. :-)


            Don's entry is shown in a very innovative style. Sitting on a ship, flaunting his "D" tattoo on his forearms, smoking cigarette, making audience crazy with his new grown beard, he booms the screen and then jumps off on an another ship to fight with some Englishmen. At last, he succeeds and then he returns back. For his next plan, he wants Vardhan(Boman Irani) to be released from the jail as he was sent behind bars in the end of DON 1. The witty mind behind the escapade of DON and Vardhan from the jail is very cool. :-) The whole jail scenario from the moment DON enters the jail and help Vardhan to come out is hooking. ROMA-Priyanka Chopra's first appearance on the screen shows that she is still busy in her dream of catching DON even after 5 years. Malik has lost his patience and he decides to retire. The confidence of Roma after catching DON is amazing but the news of his escapade with Vardhan makes you smile at her over-confidence. Then, DON finally reveals his next big project of stealing the plates which are used to print currency notes from the Currency-making center of Berlin. And from here, the real story of DON 2 begins. 


            DON 2 has succeeded in maintaining the quality of its first part: DON. DON released in 2006 and the arrival of DON 2 in 2011 is almost a gap of 5 years. You wait to watch something new after 5 years but DON 2 disappoints here as there is nothing new in the movie as compared to DON. It is just a sequel where DON moves further with his next big projects of stealing and running. Again, police fails to catch him. Again, he runs away every time you feel that he is caught finally. Every time, you expect that the next scene will take DON 2 at a better scale than DON, your expectation crushes as you find that it is exactly what you saw in DON too. But, if you have loved DON and you wanted to watch it again, you will surely love DON 2. The action-packed scenes are nicely executed. All the fighting scenes makes you fall in love with DON's style of thrashing his enemies. Priyanka Chopra has done a better job than what she did in DON. She looks extremely sexy and beautiful. Camera focuses on her breasts more which result in the screams of initial rows in the theater. :-) Kunal Kapoor is innocent in his innocent role. He has done it perfectly. Boman Irani is useless in the film. He plays no part. Lara Dutta is fine with her appearing-disappearing-appearing role. :-) Understand !!! Hrithik Roshan's cameo fails to excite you as it is nothing special. They should have shown Hrithik doing some fighting scene or a beautiful dialogue-killing scene. But, he is shown doing ball dance with Priyanka Chopra and finally unmasking him just to show his real face- DON's !!! So, people scream for Shah Rukh Khan while Hrithik Roshan's fans think that this noise in the theater is for their favorite actor. :-)


            For me, this movie is nice as it has many witty scenes. Its story is wonderful as you get to see something new. The location used in the movie makes you fall in love with all those countries. Shahrukh Khan has shown why he is still a KING. Where his rival- Salman is attempting same kind of movies, SRK is finally showing some versatility which makes him look better than his previous works. Farhan Akhtar has proved himself yet again. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's music is boring except the song- Hai ye Maya and some background scores. Farhan Akhtar has not included songs in this movie except Zara Dil Ko Thaam Lo which makes the movie look better than DON as it had silly Khaike Paan Banaras wala, Morya Morya etc. I would rate this movie 3 out of 5 and I would recommend you to try it once. But try only if you liked DON and you are OK with DON 2 being the same kind of it with no improvement. I expected it to be the same and hence my expectations are fulfilled. And its a Paisa Vasool movie for me. Oh Ok. I know in 60 rs, even a Bhojpuri film will make me vasool my paisa. :-) 


           Ending this, I haven't reviewed movie anytime and hence you may find this review boring or you may review this review of DON 2 and rate this 1 out of 5. I am OK. As I reviewed this movie only because I liked the movie and I wanted to try reviewing a movie too. :-) I know I have failed. Bye. :-)


          Thanks.
