Farhan Akhtar's Don - IV

All in all, very well made film even though it may not have had a phenomenal run at the box office. But it has done very well to ensure that it’s producers / distributors are laughing all the way to the bank. Although I am not a Shahrukh Khan fan, I thought he was decent. What I was impressed most was that Farhan Akhtar had managed to get Shahrukh Khan to not be his usual self. This according to me was Farhan Akhtar’s biggest accomplishment.

Had Shahrukh Khan been his usual self and acted the way he acts in almost all his films, then Farhan Akhtar’s Don would most definitely had been a disaster. Besides Farhan Akhtar, Ashutosh Gowariker is the only director who has managed to get a good performance out of Shahrukh Khan in Swades. However, he just doesn’t have the voice and dialogue delivery to pack the killer punch into the character of Don / Vijay which was so effortlessly done by Amitabh Bachchan.
