Trivia

The filmmakers also released a limited-edition toy version. The toy, Shahrukh Khan dressed as Don, is the first bobblehead of a Bollywood star. 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 »

Quotes

Don: Don ke samne aadmi ke pass sirf do raaste hote hain, mann jaye ya mar jaye, jaisi uski marzi.

Forget everything I ever said about Mission Impossible, I can recommend you a movie even better than that- it's a one crafted in our Desi Bollywood- Don 2.

'Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai' (It's not just difficult to catch Don, it's impossible.)- is not the only catchphrase that will ring in your ears throughout this well-scripted, action-packed blockbuster. Gone are the days when only Hollywood can eke out such thrillers- Shah Rukh Khan has once and for all silenced his criticizers and has indeed emerged as the 'Badshah of the Bollywood'.

Though it maybe imprinted on a firangi's mind that Bollywood Movies are just 'Song and Dance', he may even be right in most of the cases, but Don 2 is an exceptional case, and why shouldn't it be- after all it's directed by Farhan Akhtar.

I am a simple man (or kid, if you want to be specific) - it's not difficult to please me at all. All you have to do is to get me a movie filled with action, twists and turns, oozing adrenaline and just a hint of romance in the background- I would be drooling over the movie in no time at all.

Cinematography is superb,Berlinrocks. Action scenes are believable- there is a style and zing added to it in the way they are synchronized to give you a nice, worth popcorn crunching fight. Star Cast is awesome- Kunal Kapur fits in the role of Computer Hacker, delivery man cum photographer. Lara Dutta (Aisha) as eye candy hasn't got much to do in the movie. But most importantly it's Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra who take away the cake. I was all agog over the 'chemistry, physics or whatever you make like to call it' between Mr. Khan and delectable Priyanka Chopra (Roma), there were sparks flying off when they clashed against each other. Boman Irani (Vardhan) has returned with a vengeance and it was difficult to cull his temperament, but of course we have Don to stoke the fire. Direction and Script were excellent- kudos to Farhan Akhtar, he did an excellent job. Music by Shankar, Ehsan and Loy though others may not have liked it, was, according to me, quite likable.

My belief regarding Bollywood Movies is shattered- it is not being laid hostage to Tollywood style fighting and comically non-comical and non- vegetarian comic-caper. If Farhan Akhtar has Don 3 in pipeline, I would be one of the firsts to watch it.

I hope this movie captures other Bollywood Directors' imagination- I would love seeing more of such type of movies.

Throng the movie theatres to watch this one- I hope you won't be disappointed. Though of course I won't tell you the story as I don't want to be a party-pooper, but rest assured- entertainment is guaranteed. If you are my type of person (miser, firangi's whelp or whatever you may like to call!!), you may love this one
