The trailer was slick n awesome. Edited my review aft seein n found the movie slick n action packd.
22 December 2011 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Review before watching the movie - I was completely blown away after watching da trailer of don 2. My dad rarely watches Hindi films. So when he gav me a call to book da tickets of don 2 i was like stunned. Such is da impact of da promo. Da twist in da end of don- 1 is da best twist til date in da history of Bollywood. I hav seen numerous bollywood films wid twist which i found most of da time being plagiarized from Hollywood. But don-1 ka twist was original n da best. Period. The action sequences in da promo was mind blowing. Da fight scene in da jail does remind me of BLOOD N BONE. Added review after watching the movie- Awesome movie indeed. Cool fight sequences. Nice cinematography. Awesome direction. Good star cast. But i ain't no fan of Srk's actin. Srk was stylish with his looks n he looked cool with the bike. The villain Jabbar was really intimidating. Action was on par with Hollywood films. Surprisingly Priyanka's action choreography was top notch.
