Movie: Don 2
Director: Farhan Akhtar
Year: 2011
Stars: Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Om Puri, Lara Datta, Florian Likas and Kunal Kapoor

Snapshot of the Story

Thrilling fight scene, smashing car chases, boats blown up in the air with smoke every where and a plot based around robbery inspired from the movie “Ocean 11” and “Mission Impossible” the movie Don 2 tries to re-create the same magic as it created in 2006 with remake of original Don in 1978 starting Amitabh Bachchan. Shahrukh Khan is in the role of flamboyant criminal named “Don”, planning a bank robbery and looking for a safe escape from there.

Don 2 is an action packed film and pre-release interviews of Farhan Akhtar suggested that one should not watch this movie with expectations apart from action and thrill, but after watching the movie I felt let down and has nothing much that excites the audience apart from random car chasing scenes.

Story of Don 2 revolves around a bank robbery by Don (Shahrukh Khan) and for this he takes help of his friend or should call him enemy Vardhan (Boman Irani) who is in a Malaysian jail and escapes with help from Don. Don (Shahrukh Khan) creates a plan to get out of jail along with Vardhan (Boman Irani) and creates a master plan of bank robbery. Kunal Kapoor plays the role of a hacker that helps them to break into the security system of the bank and is picked for this assignment. Lara Datta plays the role of Don’s girlfriend and proves that the old saying “Beauty with Brain” is actually true.

Om Puri plays the role of Interpol chief and Priyanka Chopra as Roma is an Interpol investigating officer that carries old rivalry with Don (Shahrukh Khan). Movie “Don 2”
entertains you in the first half and has some good action scenes but as soon as the story enters into the second half the story looses its grip with the audience. “Don 2” in the second half is a bit slow and has nothing much to offer other than the predictable robbery and Don’s escape.

Movie Reviews and Ratings of Don 2

Director Farhan Akhtar has written some good Donism for “Don 2” that show he lives Don unlike any one else and expresses this in his personal interview with Farhan Akhtar where he said that the original Don in 1978 was a life changing movie for him.

Final Thoughts

Director Farhan Akhtar has worked well on the script but could not create the movie with the same intensity as one had expected. Shahrukh Khan was good in the movie and was good in action scenes but he was bit boring at times and I am sure his fans would think the same. Priyanka Chopra was good with her share of action scenes and looked natural. Kunal Kapoor fits well for the role of young computer hacker. There is no room for hit music in this movie and looks like Farhan Akhtar missed the trick here. Unfortunately, the producers worked more on the hype than to bring about a movie that excelled the original.

We give “Don 2” 6 out of 10, “Don 2” was the most awaited movie of 2011 and expectations were high but the audience gets nothing much apart from few good action scenes. The whole second half of the movie was slow and tiring to watch.

Mr. Perfectionist Gives India’s Biggest Hit: 3 Idiots

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Movie: 3 Idiots
Director: Rajkumar Hirani
Time: 2009
Stars: Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Karina Kapoor, Boman Irani

Snapshot of the story

The story is about three Engineering students Farhan (R. Madhavan), Raju (Sharman Joshi) and Rancho (Aamir Khan) who become friends and shares a room in the school hostel. Story is a roller coaster ride of these three friends’ and how their friendship is tested by time and how they overcome these tests. Story of 3 Idiots is inspired from the book by a well know novelist Chetan Bhagat. 3 Idiot highlight India’s materialistic education system that motivates students to run for grades to get good job in western countries rather than study for knowledge. It provides a good punch line “Study for knowledge and not for grades and excellence will follow you”. The movie has lots of humor and is the ranked as one the best comedy movies ever made.

Theme of Story

Movie starts with high drama as Farhan and Raju gets a call from Chatur (One of the college friend) about Rancho whom they have not met after the convocation day in college. Chatur is the one who forced Racho for a bet to see who will be successful 5 years down the line after graduation and to tell him that he would end up in a multi-million dollar contract from a scientist that has more than 500 patents; in short to tell him he is more successful. In this search they look across the beautiful valleys on Shimla and the story runs in flashback about their college life, tussle with college principle and how Rancho tries to challenge the current education system and rules of principle. In all this he always beat others who study only for grades. On the other hand both Raju and Farhan always ranked in last position, as Raju is always afraid of failure. Farhan desparately wanted to be a wild life photographer but was forced by his parents to be an engineer. Rancho used to keep telling them that they become what they liked rather than what others want them to be. In pursuit of Rancho in valley they met Pia who is getting married but still has feeling for Rancho. Pia decides not to marry and go in search for Rancho.

Twist in the Tale

Rancho and Pia (daughter of principle) falls in love during the college days but never share their feeling for each other and one day Rancho decides that he will go to the principle’s house that night to tell his feeling and in this he accompanies both his friends Raju and Farhan. All of them do all mischievous activities in the principles house and is spotted by the principle.
The story takes the tragic turn as Raju attempt suicide when the principle asks him to become eye witness against their late night mischievous act in the house and to punish Rancho and expel Farhan. However this step afterwards is overruled.

On Screen Chemistry

Every character in 3 Idiots was played with superb acting. The first time appearance of Aamir Khan and Karina Kapoor in the lead pair was very much appreciated by fans and critics. The principle, Viru Sahastrabudhhe played by Boman Irani was truly out standing and any one could relate their college principle with him. Music is the life line of the Indian movies and 3 Idiots also score for its music by Shantanu Moitra and sung by Sonu Nigan, Shaan and Shreya Ghoshal.

The Happy Ending

The story take lots of turns before they finally meet Rancho who is the same scientist whom Chatur was looking to meet for multi million dollar deal and wins the bet of being more successful. Story ends on a happy note as Rancho and Pia ties the knot, Raju gets a job in a big company and also manages to help his family financially. Farhan was now a famous wild life photographer. Story gives a social message that “Study for knowledge and not for grades, excellence will follow you” and “Do what you like rather what others want you to do”.
