Finally Farhan Akhtar is back in the directors seat after such a long span with Don 2 – The King is back. The style, attitude and karizma of Don are back to the silver screen. After making the remake of the original Don with King Khan, the thirst to discover what more Don has in its way; still continues. So taking a leap of 5 years, Don has now become the king of the bad world in Europe, which is not liked by everyone and so the fight to be the king of the bad world starts in this sequel.
The story starts where it is ended in the last part. The last fight between Don (Shah Rukh Khan) and Vardhan (Boman Irani) and Vardhan is imprisoned after that and Don Escapes to freedom. So after 5 years Don has become more powerful, more stylish and ya got some good tattoo and long hair too. As all of us know “Don apne doston ka khayal rakhne na rakhe par apney dushmano ki khabar zarur rakhta hai”. So a plan to kill Don is made by his competitors, but they fail (Come on yaar, its SRK and upar se Don. Kaun maar payega issey :p ) “Don ke dushman pehle chaal chaley uske pehle Don apni chaal chal chukka hota hai”. Don surrenders himself to the police and asks them to remove all the charges on him in return he would give all the information of his clients, suppliers and all the people who are connected to the drug network in Europe. He is then sent to the jail where his old enemy Vardhan is also present. There he makes a plan to rob the Deutsche Zurich Bank in Berlin with Vardhan. So from there the game begins. In the course of time, his interactions with his Junglee Billi – Roma (Priyanka Chopra) is amusing and surely you’ll love the way he flirts with a cop. The bank robbery sequence is same like you seen in it some international movies like Mission Impossible, A-Team, Ocean series etc. etc. and ya if you not seen that, then I am sure you must have seen Dhoom 1 & 2. Sameer Ali (Kunal Kapoor ) is the tech guy here , who helps Don to hack the system of the bank and control it on his wish (Nothing new )
The movie has a good grip and holds the audience. The best thing about Don 2 is that it is fast pace movie, which doesn’t bore you with all the drama. No doubt, the script and the screenplay are “Inspired” from the west. But Farhan Akhtar has done some great efforts here. Taking the entire Don Saga a step ahead is a task which will always be appreciated.
SRK in and as Don is amazing. He truly glorifies negativity like the way he did it in baazigar and Darr. He is supercool with his style and the Don attitude that he carries, which will surely be loved by all the Srk and Don lovers. Dialogues by SRK, totally fatang!!! Piggy chops is decent enough, nothing more for her to play in this sequeal. Kunal Kapoor (Good to see you on big screen after a long time) is good. But in the end, it’s the Don who carries all the responsibility of the movie and the script.
I still can’t understand, what is wrong with the music. Not a single happening track in this part. Shankar – Ehsaan – Loy sirjis, Maza nahi aya. Even the title track of Don is very thanda this time.
Overall, this would be a 1 time watch. But I am sure you won’t get bored while watching it. Dhinchak Mumbai will give 3 stars out of 5 and a free “D” wala tattoo, just apply water and remove it and flaunt it :p hahaha!!!
