Don wants to get in touch with his old rival Vardhan (Boman) who is in the jail and hatch a plot. The mission is to extract the plates that print currency in the prestigious DCB bank in Germany. Both manage to escape from the prison and reach Germany. For the mission, Don takes the help of hacker (Kunal) and hitman Abdul Jabbar (Nawab Shah) along with Vardhan. However, there is a twist in the plot. Whether Don manages to succeed this time or not forms the rest of the story.

Artist performances:

Shahrukh Khan has come up with an impressive performance and he carries it off with good style and mannerism. Priyanka Chopra was good and she has a reserved act this time. Boman Irani was effective. Nawab Shah was impressive and stands apart. Kunal Kapoor was brief but good. Lara Dutta was sexy. Om Puri was apt. Alyy Khan was adequate. Hrithik in his cameo is appealing. Sahil Shroff was standard.

Plus points:

Second half

Minus points:

Weak content
Poor songs


The film happens to be a sequel to the original hit 'Don' and it has been packaged with more richness and style. The film takes off on a slow note and it is not until the interval bang that it really picks up. But it is the overall feel and the efforts put in to cover different countries. Moreover, with less content, the challenge was to engage the audience for two plus hours and it was successful to an extent. As such, there are not many riveting scenes but it gives a satisfying taste after the film ends. At the box office, the openings will be strong and given the hype, the film would land in profit zone.

Verdict: One time watcher..
