Don 2--back in the action
Not being a huge fan of action flicks--this was pretty good--it had suspense, drama and of course, many great actors not just SRK! The special bit with Hrithik Roshan was priceless! I kept asking kiddo to check the other actors and what they were in it--some were old friends: Om Puri and Boman Irani. Though one actor, the computer whiz that planned all the technical stuff--Kunal Kapoor--seemed familiar, yet not--I recalled him from Rang de Basanti but I had also seen him in other stuff.
Don manages to evade the police--but only so far--he does get captured and tossed into a Malaysian jail with many of his enemies. I had read that they filmed in a high security jail in Malaysia--talk about taking risks. When Don gets out of jail, he is off to Germany to get his money and some revenge.
He then plots to steal the printing plates that they use to print the Euro bills from--the fact that they manage to get into the highest security part of facility is kinda hard to believe--but then, it is SRK and he can do anything!
The film was enjoyable and you could totally see the set up for Don 3--but hey--why not.
If you like action flicks--you will enjoy this! The stunts are fabulous and the acting good--story line kinda is thin but hey, aren't most action flick story lines thin??
Another enjoyable day with Bollywood--and now thanks to a wee gadget from Radio Shack--we merely have to press a button and we can switch from DVD to Cable and back--no unhooking wires!!
