Trivia

David is the first movie where two subtitlists worked on a film. The original subtitles were done by someone in North India whose subtitle quality was mediocre. Director Bejoy Nambiar was dissatisfied with the subtitles asked Rekhs, a renown subtitlist to redo the subtitles from scratch. However as the release date was approaching, the producer 'Reliance Entertainment' had printed on the original version of the subtitles on all the prints to be sent to other countries. Rekhs, subtitles were only used imprinted onto 7 prints that were sent to Malaysia. See more »

Goofs

The Ghani family is shown to be belonging to the Shi'ite stream of Islam. When the scion of the Ghani clan, Jahanzeb, is getting married to Noor, the Imam is reciting Su'rah Fateha. When the recital concludes, all the people present say "Ameen" in unison. However, in the Shi'ite stream, the conclusion of Su'rah Fateha elicits the response of "Alhamdulillahi Rab-il-Aalaameen" and not "Ameen". See more »

Amazing Movie
4 February 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

OK, many people gave negative reviews because they were not able to keep up with the plot. This movie has everything, action, drama, comedy, romance, tragedy, amazing cinematography, superb songs, and quite unique style of handling a movie.

Although superficially it may look like a movie with three protagonist with same name 'David', last few minutes really define the movie name and common string that holds all three stories together.

Some references to decide whether you'll like it or not

If you like Quentin Tarantino - Please go watch David

If you love rock music -just watch the movie for "Mast Kaladar" rock version

If you can like Neil Nitin Mukesh - this is a must watch

If you like art movies - you are on borderline

If you like Amir Khan's performance in Talaash - you are on borderline

If you like Karan Johar movies - this is waste of money for you

If you love Shahrukh Khan - you'll hate this flick

If you like Amir Khan in 3Idiots - you won't like this one

Overall I am kind of disappointed it got so less collection at box office. I might watch it again in theater.
