David is the first movie where two subtitlists worked on a film. The original subtitles were done by someone in North India whose subtitle quality was mediocre. Director Bejoy Nambiar was dissatisfied with the subtitles asked Rekhs, a renown subtitlist to redo the subtitles from scratch. However as the release date was approaching, the producer 'Reliance Entertainment' had printed on the original version of the subtitles on all the prints to be sent to other countries. Rekhs, subtitles were only used imprinted onto 7 prints that were sent to Malaysia. See more »
The Ghani family is shown to be belonging to the Shi'ite stream of Islam. When the scion of the Ghani clan, Jahanzeb, is getting married to Noor, the Imam is reciting Su'rah Fateha. When the recital concludes, all the people present say "Ameen" in unison. However, in the Shi'ite stream, the conclusion of Su'rah Fateha elicits the response of "Alhamdulillahi Rab-il-Aalaameen" and not "Ameen". See more »
The UK release was cut, the distributor chose to make cuts to remove a scene of violence (a man being set alight after being doused with alcohol) and a scene of bloody self-harming (a man cutting his arm with a knife) in order to obtain a 12A classification. An uncut 15 classification was available. (The Tamil language version of the film was the version classified and released in the United Kingdom, to date the Hindi version has neither been classified nor released in the United Kingdom).

The making. That was the main attraction of director Bejoy Nambiar's previous project : Shaitan. I was so excited to see that movie in a totally new making style. Bejoy Nambiar was added to my favorite film maker's list and I don't miss my favorites' creations. That's how I got in for 'DAVID' , the tamil version.
Watched this in a local theatre near to my house. The main advantage of this is that there wont be a 'mass' presence to disturb the peaceful movie watching. It was released quite a few days back and I went for a noon show on a Tuesday. So there was no chance of a disturbance and I like it that way at times.
'DAVID' is a sleek n simple tale of two persons with the same name. though their life is shown on a parallel mode, it happens during 2 different times(1999 & 2010). Jiva as the aspiring guitarist and Vikram as the so called 'unlucky' fisherman of goa, tabu as his friend,his mother,his dad; all were great delight to watch. Isha Shervani does her part decently and the good moments in this were in the Vikram's story.
The album is awesome and I loved all the tracks in this. The film opens up with the theme song of 'DAVID' and that's very exciting to watch. The unconventional 'khoya khoya chaand' style (of Shaitan) is repeated in this also in a fight sequence.
The way I understood , 'DAVID' is about the identity that each one of us have and why its not possible for one to be someone else. We all have a name, a soul and a character and we are supposed to do certain things which only we can do. So we shouldn't be trying to be someone else. If we did, then who is gonna do our part?? I felt that's what the movie is all about. The name 'DAVID' was just a random pick ; it could have be anyone , any name..
