Trivia

Don 2 was critisized because of its music and pace but Shah Rukh Khan perfomance and action was much appreciated. See more »

Goofs

When Roma and the other Interpol officers enter DCB, Sameer informs Vardhaan about it. But, he doesn't inform Don about it. After some time, it is shown that Don already knew about it and calls Vishal Malik (Om Puri).

Just because we do not see it, that doesn't mean it didn't happen. It would have been redundant to do a scene with Sameer telling Don. See more »

One of the Best of 2011. "Don Ko Pakadna Mushkil Nahin, Namumkin Hai"
10 January 2012 | by Pratik112See all my reviews

Having heard a lot about this sequel to "DON" 2006, before the movie was released and indeed long time before, that "it was on" and then "it was off," I was looking forward to this one.

It has been five years since Don made his escape and is now out to conquer the Western World. Only he has to ensure that his enemies don't get (kill) him.

Starring Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Om Puri, Kunal Kapoor, Florian Lukas and Sahil Shroff. Music is by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. Lyrics By Javed Akhtar. Directed By Farhan Akhtar. The movie is Produced By Farhan Akhtar, Shahrukh Khan and Ritesh Sidhwani.

Shahrukh Khan's previous release, "RA ONE," may not have done well as expected but this has. Shahrukh Khan has proved, once again, that he is able to do such action roles. He is convincing as the "DON" and this role has suited. His expressions and the way he delivers his dialogues, make one feel convinced. However, his hairstyle is to be watched out for.

Priyanka Chopra makes a return as "Roma." Only this time she has a more meatier part then she did in 2006 and this suits her more now then it did five years back. Here, her character, "Roma" has joined the Interpol and she is determined to catch Don.

Lara Dutta has replaced Isha Koppikar and plays the character, "Ayesha," who is all the time with the Don. Boman Irani returns as "Vaardhan," who was caught by the Police five years back and Om Puri, also returns as CBI Officer Vishal Malik.But one actor, who did a good job of his role, is Kunal Kapoor as a man who helps DON.

Farhan Akhtar has returned to be behind the cameras and not in front of them. While, his father, Javed Akhtar, has written good lyrics for the music directors Shankar Ehsaan Loy to compose.

The action sequences, especially in 3D, are worth watching out.

If you like to watch action movies, then this is not to be missed.
