The climax was exciting the way it ended – 4.0/5.0
By: Jay Mamtora
Jay Mamtora, was one of the first few to watch Don 2 in UK and he was kind enough to share some interesting details on the film. Here is our analysis on his Don 2 review that was published just a few minutes back.
When a film is over-promoted – as was the case with Ra One – it makes it pretty evident that the makers are not confident of their product and are trying to cash-in on the initial weekend to recover most of the films investment.
Don 2 was adequately promoted, infact the promotions were quite similar to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which was a good sign. As it turns out, the initial reviews from UK are all positive. The film has been liked, SRK’s performance has received immense praise (even from those who are not die-hard SRK fans) and the second half has been liked more than the first, which is always a great sign.
Apart from SRK, who has received the maximum praise as Don, it’s Boman Irani’s performance that has been liked the most. Not many have liked Priyanka Chopra in Don 2.
Moving on, Hrithik Roshan seems to have a 5 minute role, which won’t be revealed as it might ruin the suspense element.
The 3D version of Don 2 also seems to have come out well – “the 3D was effective and was very well done”.
The Don 2 runtime is approximately 2 hours 20 minutes and the film has only one song, which is again great. The last thing you’d want to see in a fast-paced action thriller is a typical Bollywood song-n-dance number. In Ra One, the three songs – Chammak Challo, Dildaara and Criminal – were all awesome tracks. But while watching the film, it looked pretty stupid.
Overall, a good film is what excites us the most and we can’t wait to watch Don 2 now, with all the positive reviews coming in.
Update Two: We also asked Jay Mamtora about the repeat-value and this is what he said “I would watch it again but with Don 1 – as you might miss some of the wit and banter and I missed some bits of the plot. “.
If it does indeed carry good repeat-value, then get set for a box-office monster!
