Don And a half (yes that's my name for SRK-Akhtar version 1) felt like a turbo-wash scrubbed the circa off the original's flary pants, patchy rope tricks and rustic Banarsi ale. But here's the scrub. The best dialogues were fully air-lifted from Banarsi to Bacardi zone.
And since it was SRK and not His Baritoneness, intensity got a sidekick. Replaced with a suitable sneer.And now the F1pace-plot continues to slicken with graphic novella atmospherics.
Missing in action, in the new Dons - The comic relief of country bumpkin Amitabh.Which had a plotted place for the songs but I guess songs then were woven with fewer hectic threads than jeez.
To be fair, DON And a half elongated the Don franchise and twisted us successfully, bang into our era. Scam hain naam mera SCAM!
A stupendously less innocent time when the criminal draws us in from everywhere be it murder mysteries, power topis of cops to politicos-Gandi topi anyone?
So much more believable that the crook will cook the cops today. Aadha Don you were bang on - because I no longer believe sequels can offer us the classic escapism of the original DON, simply because reality will mostly outwit current video game imaginations.
But point Milord is in these smarter sexier multiperplexing movie going times, why are the women not moving beyond a stunning cosmetic absence. EVEN NOW?
Why not have a dance bar girl from western UP plot a paan masala revenge on Don for let's say, screwing with her tip? But can that be expected of boys with toys who are more likely to offer a sexy rub instead of a cool back story?
What might actually work as Farhan Akhtar goes around hard selling Don platitudinously as an honest criminal is a comic strip called THE LEGEND OF DON Hua—Resting in Pieces.
That by the way is what these fans in Patna wanted — a piece of SRK.
Meanwhile DON too, sorry two is here.
Move into the erogenous e-friendly makeover of see-kqill of the sequel, while I roll back and take a chhota peg of the old DON. The whole movie in less than 16 minutes flat. Now there's a portable Don for Bambai nagariya.
Ee too dekh babua?
