Ever since Farhan Akhtar’s Don came out, I wanted to watch the old Don to revive my memories before watching the new one. Ofcourse, the intent being to compare the two movies.
A couple of days ago, I rented a DVD and watched the old Don. Last night I watched the new one. Here is my take on both the movies (please bear in mind, that I am no movie expert):
Amitabh Bachchan (AB) is The Don. Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) doesnt even come close. Maybe it was AB’s height, his charisma or both. SRK is good, but not when compared to the original Don.
The old music is the best. Sorry, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, but Kalyanji-Anandji truimph with their melodious music. I liked the Morya re song from the new movie, didnt like the new Khaike Paan song.
Arjun Rampal was good. Much better than Pran (haha, sorry for comparing them).
Overall a good entertainer. Just don’t go to the movie hall expecting to see a better Don movie. Watch is as just another movie.
