Trivia

Hrithik Roshan who was the first choice of Don. He appeared as cameo in Don 2. 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 »

Don 2 is a watchable fare.......and a treat 4 SRK fans
23 December 2011 | by Vivek DonSee all my reviews

Saw Don 2 today morning at a Terrific theater atmosphere........even after reserving the tickets,we had a tough time entering the theater........

Now coming to the movie,Don 2 is a fast paced thriller that lies entirely on SRK and Farhan,what makes it a watchable thriller is SRK's energetic performance,Looks and Charisma and Farhan's direction.

Movie doesn't have much Story to offer.It starts off from where the first part ends......Don returns to Malaysia where he eventually surrenders to Interpol officers Roma and Malik.From there he goes to the jail to see his arch enemy Vardhan(villain in the 1st part)where he has set new plans for a robbery and then the film deals with the execution of the robbery and of course there are some twists and turns here and there....

Shahrukh as the villainous hero Don is the main highlight of the film.He portrays the role with ease.His looks and action scenes were top notch.His entry look was simply superb.I really liked the way he delivers the good one liners.The film entirely lies on his shoulders.Cant imagine any other person to do this role.(maybe AB.....he did it in 1978,But now there is no chance for him too)

Priyanka Chopra did her job very well....looked good in the movie.....but a bit boring in the 2nd half....didn't have much role when compared to the 1st part.Final song sequence was not needed though Boman Irani as Vardhan did what he was told too....not too outstanding and not too bad...... Kunal kapoor,Lara dutta and the Others did what was demanded.....not much to do though.......Hritik Roshan's Cameo was not very needed but it doesn't cause any harm to the film also....Like I said earlier,Its an SRK film and its SRK all the way overshadowing all the other others with his performance

Farhan Akthar who is known for trend setters like Dil chahta hai ,Lakshya returns to direction after 5 years with Don 2......He lives up to the expectations to a certain extent,His writing deserves a special mention.I loved the dialogues.But on the Whole,The movie could have been better.screenplay should have been more tight and romance of Don with Roma could have been removed from the film.......

The main drawback of the film is the lack of thrilling moments we expect from a thriller.Apart from a chase sequence in the first half,Ther are not many scenes to thrill.In the 2nd half,plot becomes predictable........and twists became very weak......we feel that we have seen it all somewhere....and that is where the movie fails.....

Music is also another drawback....yet i liked the track Zara dil ko tham lo from the movie....which i didn't like earlier.......Background score is awesome though.....

Well I would rate Don 2 as a watchable fare which could have been better.....SRK fans might love it......and In the box office,Don 2 is sure to set he cash registers ringing........Farhan should focus more on the story and screenplay if he plans for a DON 3........
