Storyline

In 2006, the drug trade is booming; trafficking between Asian and Europe is at an all time high. It is at this time that the Malaysian intelligence and Anti-Narcotic department are called upon for assistance by their Indian counterparts. There are rumors that the gang recently moved their operational headquarters. The cartel is headed by the dreaded Singhania, but what many people do not know is that the business is truly managed by his lieutenant, Don. A man who lives life on the edge, Don is constantly expanding the size of his empire while evading arrest or death at the hands of his enemies, both within and outside the law. He is unstoppable in his pursuit of absolute power. His chief pursuer is an Indian police officer, Desilva. He is a man who has sworn to put an end to this nexus of evil and knows that in capturing Don lies the key to unlock this puzzle. And one day he succeeds. Don is captured and Desilva puts his plan into action. Unknown to even his own department, Pesilva ... Written by gAvInDrA (brave_loverboy2004@hotmail.com)

The best n original twist ending in the history of Bollywood.
27 February 2021 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

I first saw this with my family in a theatre in 2006. Revisited it recently. While the original 1978 version was ahead of its time n it has some amazing star cast, this one is slick with the best twist ending in the history of Bollywood.

Sharukh aint no match in comparison with Amitabh, especially the way Amitabh portrayed the dead serious n cold hearted behavior n face but Sharukh is stylish n he gave a decent performance.

This one has some lovely locations, good action n it has Kareena in a busty shape.

The scene in the original where Don is locked up in the same cell along with his associates n Shakaal (Shetty) is tensed n nail biting. This one is lacking such stuff.
