Don

Don ka review likhna mushkil hi nahi...na mumkin hai....kyuki kuch yaad hi nahi rehta :-)

Total masala, total yaari-dosti type movie, SRK recommending Priyanka, Arjun of his Temptation troupe..and Farhan giving work to his friends..

Music was on weaker side, Shankar Mahdevan's voice was medicore in 'Ganpati' song, someone with heavy voice like Rathod or Amit Kumar would have done a better job!!

And I'm 200% sure nobody can write a complete review or more than 10 lines about storyline!
All I can remember is that it started with Chunky and ended with Isha, with lots of useless characters like Kareena/Rampal/Om Puri and equally useless songs thrown in.
Almost all songs were picturized as stage shows; Kareena's number was worst and SRK 'Paan' song was best choreographed.

Only saving grace was the background music, coz that was remix of older version.

After KANK, and now Don, I'm convinced that SRK is no longer an actor, he is simply SRK in his movies not the character, but just larger-than-life SRK himself.
Its time he and his director-friends realize that and stop him from heading towards Dada's fate.

In all, a gamble that didn't pay off; still a risk-worth taking, a failed experiment by Farhan, anyways every time he cannot deliver a DCH or Lakshaya, but still he managed to remain in the elite league. From a 'male-bonding story' to a 'love-story in war-background', and to a 'classic-remake', now lets wait what he comes up with next!

Seen Don..it's just disgusting..

@@Shub:: hmm yep his movies r getting stressful, but in 'KANK' KJo warned beforehand abt the length of movie :: 'kuch zakm waqt ke saath aur bhi gehrey ho jaatey hai " :-)
I think its getting difficult for him to choose roles, he is too old for romantic ones and too young for character roles!!

@@Alapana:: hmmmm...root cause is lack of good stories!!
And I read ur updated post, and left another comment there :-)

@@Ganga:: hahahahaha...thats what everybody is saying :-)

Ekta said...

i regret seeing the movie..it was painful and SRK as usual was pathetic!

Bhagya said...

Hopefully he comes up with something better. And gets some actors this time.

kay said...

very well reviewed...i couldnt agree more...kareena kapoor gave me nightmares for a few nights,after i was done with the movie,for the first and definitely the last time.

infinity said...

did you at any point of time in your life seriously think of srk as an actor?because that is one thing he has never been...he's always been more like a ramlila troupe performer from eastern up,over the top...

Amodini said...

I'm not gaga over Don, but I don't think it's all bad. It's hard not to make comparisons with the original though.

Budding Poet said...

Yup man..
Don ko dekhna namumkin hai

manuscrypts said...

the fault is in the comparisons.. treat it standalone and it isnt that bad...

Stone said...

@@Ekta:: Still I'm sure you are gonna watch SRK's next one :-)

@@Bhagya:: Yep, I'm also waiting for his next one, this time he was below expectations but still he is one of the best in business.

@@Kay:: You are the only one who really liked the review :-) Thank you :-) and yes, Kareena's part was lowest point in the movie.

@@infinity:: hmmm....whatever, but still he has placed himself in top slot, I think he is most intelligent actor present, he knows how to sell himself.

@@Amodini:: I agree its not that bad but, like Manu said 'the fault is in the comparison'

@@Budding Poet:: hmmm..ek baar dekhna mumkin hai :-)

@@Manuscrypts:: You are always right :-)

infinity said...

yes srk is intelligent because intelligence is relative...and most of the people who like him are reaalllyy DUMB!

Stone said...

@@infinity:: hahahaha..chill dude, ok I like SRK and think he is intelligent and I'm DUMB. Ab theekh :-)

infinity said...

arre don't worry...it's just my personal opinion that srk fans are dumb...and a widely held belief among srk fans is that i'm insane...so no fight...

Stone said...

yep no fight :-)
Take care!!!

Parth said...

I think expecting SRK to be an actor is misplaced. He has never pretended to be one. I think the way it always worked for him was to be SRK on screen, and he was likeable at that. I actually didn't mind Don that much. Although the music was a little weak adn the plot meandered in the second half, overall, there was a lot of masala in there.
