A week or so back Grady at Kaiju Shakedown posted news about an upcoming Bollywood remake of Don, a 1978 brownsploitation gangster film by Amitabh Bachchan - a film apparently considered a classic by a good many people in the know. Now, the interesting note on this to me isn't so much that the film is being remade but that, according to IndiaFM, this is the first official remake in the histroy of the Bollywood film industry. Not that Bollywood producers haven't cranked out stacks of remakes in the past, but this is the very first time that they have ever actually acknowledged their source and paid proper rights fees to do it legally.

I cant wait till this movie comes out. LOOKS FANTASTIC. IVE BEEN WAITING A VERY LONG TIME FOR THIS MOVIE TO COME OUT. I CANT WAIT. I THINK SHAH RUKH will justify this role very greatly and sincerly. A big blockbuster actor stared in this role previously, and a big blockbuster actor will star in this role presently. The original DON, was my al time favourite movie. I love it. I cannot wait to see the upcoming film.

I cant wait til this film comes out its gonna be the best this year. A lot of ppl are sayin the old Don is a classic, which it is. Deep above sed its being duplicated, in fact its not, if he ever reads any bollywood news and interviews he will see that there are changes.
This film will not ruin the old one. It will enhance it due to the better effects and more gadgets which will make it action packed and revilatise the original Don. I think SRK is the right man for it as well.
P.S Deep, its Kareena Kapoor doing Helens role not Rani so get ur facts right

DeepAugust 22, 2006 4:38 AM

My friend DON, I am not critising the movie, it justs that it will be difficult to watch Amitabhs movie even with changes reacted again, do you think special effects and action is everything in a movie what abt acting??? Do you think anybody can match Amitabh, I don't think so, if you want special effects and action watch HOLLYWOOD movies they r way ahead of BOLLYWOOD as they have more money and it doesn't matter if kareena or rani or whoever dances to that song, it will still suck

OLD DON ROCKS

The movie poster sucks and so will the movie, the poster looks like a MATRIX movie poster. Sh Sh Sh Sh Sh Shahrukh Khan is the crappiest actor BOLLYWOOD has ever created. He should do whats suits him best soap ads. The only way this movie will make money is by pple going to the theaters to see what disaster they did with the original DON, I am quite sure the young generation will still remember the old DON which will wipe out the new crappy DONs existence

Please take it from me "Don ka remake banana mushkil hi nahi , namunkin bhi hai". Amitabh's DON was a classic. I don't know what shahrukh/akhtar is trying to prove by remking this classic.
I think mr. shahrukh is more into comparing himself with biggies like amitabh, which is going to go in vain. Nobody can take place of Amitabh and his movies, he is legend.
Shahrukh should know his limitations and he should act within his boundaries, as ram gopal varma rightly said once "Shahrukh is nothing without a good package".
The ease at which Amitabh performed in DON can not be duplicated by anyone else, he is awesome. I still remember all the dialogues of DON classic from A-Z and its never going to be a boredom if i watch this movie 100 times. Old DON still has ability to thrill anyone.
I agree with Deep, you may replace any character of this classic, but you can not replicate the verdict "Don Classic was a superhit" and that magic can not be created again.

Is there a way to ban this film from releasing what a waste of money hungry kids can make more use of that money

shahrukh's no1 fan!September 12, 2006 10:48 PM

hmmm to all u guys that think this film will be a blatant rip off off the old “don” I wana tel u how wrong u r! it’s inspired by the old one, but that doesn’t mean it’s a total copy of it!
Shahrukh khan is a LEGEND-I mean his movies say it all! He’s had his flops, but it doesn’t mean that he’s not a brilliant actor. Ram gopal varma chats shit-jus coz his films r all flops! Look @ srk’s films-darr, baazigar, kkhh, ddlj-LEGENDS who else can portray love as psychotically as he did in darr? What other actor wud give the role of “Raj” in ddlj justice?? NO-ONE else could!

& if he’s made a “remake” of don-so what?!!!! Go bitch @ the director who made the film-why abuse the actors? I think it’s a great thing they’re doing by remaking the old movies. Obviously the old movies are great originals, but not all young people these days enjoy the old films. @ least in this way, the younger generation will be able to relate more to Indian cinema, and hey how is that a bad thing?
Shahrukh has his own style of acting, I don’t think he overacts at all!
I cant wait for this movie to be released-its gona b great!!! It won’t have the same effect as the old don-that is the original and amitabh bachan is awesome, but srk is a brilliant actor! :)
