Don 2006 - O God !!! Why did I waste my Time ??

I had heard that Don (2006) had not got good reviews ... some friends liked it .. others said it was a waste of time ... then someone ... hey ... nice twist in the end ...

I was myself recomending people NOT to see the movie based on these perception ...

But ... as fate may have it ... i ended up spending 3 hours of my time watching the movie ...

My review ... based on personal experience and not on hearsay ...

DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT WATCHING THIS MOVIE ...

DON (2006) is the shoddiest, most ill-concieved, ill-directed, ill-scripted, ill-choreagraphed, ill-acted , ill-musical'ed, ill-etc ... movie I have seen in the recent past ....

Farhan had thought out a very fantastic twist in the tail .. or is it tale .. whatever ..
but he messed up the movie .. completely ...

I cannot appreciate a single thing in the movie ...
The story line was confused .. not confusing .. but confused ...
there were soooooo many inconsistencies in the movie .. in the dialogues ... in the storyline ...
it seemed to be a cut-paste of two storylines ... the old and the new-twists ....
very 'ordianry' camera work ... a very un-convincing movie ...
costume designer was probably out of his head
and the characterizations were ill-conceived and ill-managed
not a single character in the movie displayed any sign of 'good acting' ...
ordinary 'chalta hain' quality of performance ... even by established actors like SRK, Om Puri and Boman Irani ... very ordinary ...

An absolute waste of good time ....

I just wish ... Farhan had decided NOT to re-make Don ...

I was wondering ... what image of DON will the new generation carry ... they have NOT seen the original ,,, but they have sen the 'Duplicate' ... a pretty shoddy Duplicate ...

Yuks ...

If you can ... just watch the last 30 minutes ... u might like the twist-in-the-tail/tale

  2. Read this: http://greatbong.net/2006/11/06/don-the-review/

    I personally liked the remake as much - though Sharukh is no match for AB - and I agree there is some mix-up in the styles. For ex: "Khaike ..." does not suit the character of the new Don ... it did for the old one ...

    But I liked it for Sharukh - who didnt try to copy the original, Boman - who was good, 'Experience' - which was closer to 007 than the original movie

  3. It was truly refreshing to read article on DD. I recollected as you narrated each and every serial.
    DD was truly the torch bearer of indian TV.
