DON KO PAKADNA MUSHKIL HI NAHI NAMUMKIN HAIN!!! If you are wondering how different is the new Don from the original version, then that line is the answer. This movie directed by Farhan Akhtar has made a conscious and audacius effort in not replicating the original. He has come up with some new twists in the end well if not for this the movie isn't worth watching. Shahrukh looks old but anyway that doesn't matter to the character he plays here. Priyanka seem to come as a mere eye-candy has nothing much to perform. Farhan has roped in galaxy of stars in the movie and at times its a bit difficult to remember all the characters. A very technically advanced movie which is shot mostly in different parts of Malaysia. The movie was totally an enjoyable ride!!

Guess farhan watchd swordfish,kill bill,con air n a host of other heist movies along wit his dad;dad tells him"beta,meine bhi aisa ek movie lika thaa.."farhan gets thinking and adds 1 and 1 lo!u ve the new DON(-2)! And even if we chose to ignore such things n watch it,sth was amiss. The performances vr nt tat convincing. The casting wa aweful and even now i cant imagine Om Puri holdin a starbucks espresso in his hand n talkin wit Boman(Kamal did such things so naturally in V.V)...After DCH n Lakshya, one expectd far better stuff from Farhan.
