Farhan Akhtar's Don
I did check out your blog Muvie Geek and found it very interesting. Your choice of favourite films (on your profile) is absolutely hilarious! You have a great sense of humour!
I also checked out the posts on your blogs and found it quite entertaining especially your take on Farhan Akhtar’s Don. You and I had pretty similar reasons for watching Farhan Akhtar’s Don. I watched it not for Shahrukh Khan but for Farhan Akhtar as well because I have tremendous respect for him as a film-maker. Like you, I also tried not to compare the earlier Don with the new one because it’s unfair. However, comparison was inevitable. Though I feel that Farhan Akhtar has managed to hold on to his own knowing fully well that critics would be waiting to bay for his blood upon the release of his remake of this 1978 classic! However, I think that inspite of keeping the basic premise same, he has beautifully adapted his version of Don to suit the present generations’ sensibilities.
I have written about Farhan Akhtar’s Don twice. Once prior to watching it and once after watching. I would love it if you could check out my posts on Farhan Akhtar’s Don and let me know of what you think. After reading your posts, I got a sense that both of us had different views on Farhan Akhtar’s Don.
Anyways, happy Bollywood Blogging to everybody and have a great weekend!!!!
