Dammit, you should have at least put a spoiler warning :(

Hmm.. Well..my reaction after the movie was one of confusion. While injecting a new storyline in the second half was smart move, I did feel that farhan should have gone all out and made a NEW all out action thriller instead of a tribute-usque one. Yes, the movie was slick and often felt like watching a hollywood production at times, I didn't find it particularly innovative. I certainly wouldn't keep it in my all time list as yet. Watchable..is my opinion at this point. Though, I must admit, Shahrukh was better than what I had hoped.

Hi,

Somehow I dont really feel like seeing this movie.With all the designer sun-glasses and Matrix like action in the trailer, I yet feel I would rather die with the memory that Amitabhji was THE DON..
I was never a huge Shahrukh Fan and I really dont see any chance of him coming close to Amitabh's class.

Good review in short. I would have taken reams of pages to pay tribute!!

main hoon don main hoon don………….these lines are only indicates to BIG B. nobody can replace this image from the mind of bollywood lovers. I’ll appreciate shahrukh that he had accept the challenge of be a new don. But …………? I’ve seen new don in trailer, he looks like Hollywood hero. I think nothing is desi type in this film.

I too caught it recently on SET-Max and what I really loved was this superb line! I just wish if somebody wrote such lines for contemporary "masala" flicks. Vintage Salim-Javed, indeed.

Did get your joke. Hope you got the sarcasm ;-)

Salil - yeah, believe it or not, I was going to put a spoiler warning in the original post, then forget. Then came your comment :-)) Anyway, you seem to have seen my share of the viewing too!

Zero: yeah, what fun stuff that was.
