Don PosterRemaking a yesteryear hit can be an arduous task. Especially if it happens to be the Amitabh Bachchan starrer DON. One film people remember vividly for various reasons, right from Big B’s towering performance to the popular tracks to its gripping story and sharp execution…

The advantages first?

Perhaps, the new generation might not have watched the classic starring Bachchan. That makes the 2006 adaptation a novel cinematic experience. The present version also arouses tremendous interest since SRK steps into Bachchan’s shoes…

DON was made in the 1970s and a new version, with appropriate updates, is always welcome…

Most importantly, every director has his/her style of interpreting a story. Chandra Barot had his way of narrating a story, Farhan Akhtar has his own unique style…

The sole disadvantage?

Since the Bachchan starrer remains etched in the memory of a section of moviegoers, the SRK starrer carries a massive responsibility on its shoulders. The comparisons, therefore, are inevitable. Every character, song and the impact of several vital portions will be viewed minutely…

Any area where the new version works? Of course, it’s far more glossy, far more stylish and far more visually appealing. Let’s just say, the new DON is body beautiful, minus soul…
