Movie Review: Don 2

BuddyBits [rating:3.5]

With all it’s twists and turns, Don 2 marks a decent end to the year for Bollywood. The movie’s strengths are action, plot twists and it’s faced paced storyline which always keeps you at the edge of your seat. The film borrow from some Hollywood flicks like Mission Impossible, but it’s neatly made and the plot fits in like a jigsaw puzzle at the end of the movie.

Direction, cinematography, dialogues and the editing of the movie is excellent. The only negatives were the touch of grey given to Don’s character and the love story angle towards the end. The character could have been made much darker, which would have appealed more to the audience.


After ditching the cops five years ago, by becoming an indisputable don of Asian underworld, the story of Don (Shah Rukh Khan) goes ahead, initially by surrendering to cops Malik (Om Puri) and Roma (Priyanka Chopra) in Malaysia, with a certain motive. His aim is to steal the money making plates from a bank, whose source can only be traced through a safety deposit box in Switzerland, preserved by Singhania (Rajesh Khattar), who was killed in the prequel Don. The only man, who can take him to the deposit box now, is Vardhan (Boman Irani) who is in the Malaysian jail. As soon as he sets himself and Vardhan free, he gets on a mission to conquer the European underworld with an aim to fetch the plates from the bank. Now, how will Don accomplish his task with the help of Sameer Ali (Kunal Kapoor), Jabbar (Nawab Shah) and his sweetheart Lara (Lara Dutta), is the rest of the story.


Don 2 is a perfect combination of twists and turns. It’s definitely a one-time watch. We recommend Don 2 to all BB Readers.
