Don 2 (2011)
what do you want from a sequel ?
What do you want from a sequel? Twists not to be repeated, better music, better dialogues. the stunts are much better. like first part, the movie starts with SHAHRUKH KHAN killing someone who tries to set him up. well that's repetitive but digestible, the chase in Berlin was brilliant.
but the thing is, first half should have been tighter. the dialogues weren't classy. its the KING ruling all over the movie. But this way whatever thrilling moment is thrown our way, seems already known. because there is no character in movie who can challenge him.
think it like this, if their is no smart and powerful persona to oppose DON every moves he makes however intelligent loses its weight. because things go his way every time, their is feeling that he can achieve this or that without anything opposing him.
his enemy Vardhan played a brilliant enemy to DON in first part. but because his character is minimized to powerless persona, their is no effect on us even if he plans against DON.
similarly MONA(Priyanka Chopra)was powerful, because her motive to catch him was emotionally fed with his brother's death in first part. But just mentioning it as the movie passes leaves us untouched.
when kunal kapoor says "Copy" this and that, well he should have brought more authenticity to it. his acting skills jeopardized many scenes.
the plot to steal 'the plates' from DZB is brilliant thought, loosely managed. So a tight editing is needed, a powerful enemy(a new character)and some brilliant music would have made the movie far better. DON 1 was much better than this. but shahrukh acted very well, see him transform from villainous thoughts to innocent 'trying to help' guy. ADDED THOUGHT : Plus why copy some scenes from OCEAN series and other Hollywood movies?
