    Verdict - Super smooth production but not too much soul.

    Don 2 is very slick, very suave and very smooth. So smooth at times that it slides off you like an egg off a Teflon pan leaving you marveling at the super high production values but wondering what the fuss is all about.

    In this episode ( I am assuming that there will be many more)of the story, Don spirits himself back into jail to free Vardhaan so that they can rob, not just some silly bank but the plates from which the notes are printed so that they can become, as he says, a millionaire. So much for ambition. As usual Inspector Malik and Roma are on his case. There are a couple of other goons and Don is one step ahead of them as he hatches his plans and crosses them and double crosses them etc etc. till he rides off into the sunset on his bike.

    SRK in an attempt to be uber cool does not move too many muscles on his face. All his lines are delivered with just a small lopsided grin and a slow drawl in a bass-ish voice. The challenge now lies in getting used to seeing an older SRK on screen with an increasingly androgynous look about his body. The only times he sheds the languid pose is when he is sparring with Priyanka when you can see the sparks flying or when he is really angry. Then you can see shades of the old SRK from Darr and Bazigar in his eyes. Scary. The good part is he delivers some fantastic one liners with such perfect timing that you just have to doff your hat to him. Priyanka as Roma is all bustling professionalism and puts up a good show in the fight sequence. Lara looks good but doesnt have much to do. Boman makes a cool criminal and it was unusual to see him throwing a few punches. Kunal Kapur as the computer nerd is kind of cute and I suspect the sequels will have him in larger roles as Don moves towards retirement.

    Yeh Don ko aap ek baar zaroor pakad sakte ho.
