Don 2

The Don does it again

Guns n’ lipstick: Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra in Don 2.Hindi (U/A)
Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and others
Director: Farhan Akhtar

From the best to good to not so good if not bad. This is how one can rate the journey of Don from 1978 to 2011. Riding high on the success of the 2006 hit Don, the sequel seems to have lost the momentum going for it.

With Asia under his control, Don (Shah Rukh Khan) now sets his sights on the European underworld. He plans to rob the Germans of their currency plates. He surrenders before the Interpol thereby fulfilling detectives Malik (Om Puri) and Roma’s (Priyanka Chopra) wish of seeing the Don behind the bars for once.

Don then ropes in his old-time foe Vardhan (Boman Irani) and the duo vanishes from the jail without losing much time to loot the expensive piece of metal. The second-half of the movie is all about the execution of the plan.

The USP of Don 2 is the action sequences. But the slow pace of the story and the same old dialogues Don ko pakadna muskil hi nahi namumkin hai make you yawn in the first half. Even the charms of Priyanka Chopra and the skin show by Lara Dutta fail to rouse the audience.

However, post-interval action sequences and SRK’s endearing performance manage to reverse the mood to some extent.

Don 2 is all about Shah Rukh Khan and he does not disappoint his fans either. Although in his late 40s, the Badshah of Bollywood does all the action scenes and stunts with ease, making people who brand him only as a romantic hero, to think again. Watch it for Shah Rukh Khan and his daring stunts, specially the leap from the 37th floor.
