Don – 2 Return Of The King (Review)

Yesterday I went for Don-2 the much awaited 2nd version of Bollywood flick Don(1975) .I already had reviews  from two of my friends that it was good movie.So i was eager to watch it soon.I was accompanied by one of my room mate.He booked the tickets online for 8:15 PM show at INOX,Central Mall,Jayanagar,Bangalore.We  reached there by 7.50 and show began at 8:15.There comes so many advertisements.I didn’t expected this much advertisements in INOX.

Soon film started.Introduction of SRK was done is a stylish way.With long hair and beard comes Don in a speed boat for consignment.Then story goes on with scenes like introduction of Priyanka Chopra,Don’s meeting with old arch enemy Vardhaan played by Boman Irani.Then they escapes from prison and there comes the first song with Lara Dutta ‘ Zara Dil Ko Thaam Lo’.I was not interested in this song when i heard it first,but later on i was addicted to this.Next thing is the explanation of master plan by Don and later on he adds up Kunal Kapoor in his team as a hacker.The plan is to get currency plates from Duetsche Zentral Bank.Sorry folks that is it.I am not going to tell the whole story here.Now what is noticed in between Don and Don 2 is that latter part has so many action sequence and song were less.The only other song which was there in the movie was ‘Hai Ye Maya’  by Usha Uthup was played as background music.There were not too many romantic scenes.This made the movie more serious otherwise it would have been boring.The climax was also superb.

Farhan Akhtar is really a true genius.I think he is the whole master brain behind this movie.He has tried to lift up the standards of this film,which i think can be compared to MI:2.SRK deserves a lot of respect as he can only do a role like this.The dialogue delivery and style statement from him was too good.The special appearance by Hrithik Roshan and Lara Dutta made film more interesting.Priyanka Chopra,Kunal Kapoor,Boman Irani  also chipped in with great performance.In overall i would rate this movie 7.5/10.

Cygwin

I loved using this tool as soon as i installed it in my lappy.Totally cool app for everyone who has to work on Unix/Linux.Cygwin is Cygwin is a Unix-like environment and command-line interface for Microsoft Windows. best part is that cygwin can access application,data and other system resources from Windows.Cygwin is open source and is now maintained by employees of Redhat and Netapps.You can read more about the below link.

After Installing this one i refreshed all  Unix/Linux commands.My enthusiasm towards Open source world has increased much after working on this one.First time i installed Cygwwin with Minimal packages.Afte working for some time i noticed that Vim editor commands and some bash commands are not working.So decided to check for the updates,then i came to know that we have to install additional packages to get VIM editor and all.So decided to give all packages for the next install.I started downloading then i  realize that full install of Cygwin is around 900MB.So left it behind and began to install again after selecting all the packages that i need.Now the download was over within minutes and the Cygwin was up.The next in my mind was to run an MP3 from the Command line .So googled whether it is possible.Failed to get any appropriate result.Anyways i am stuck to this tool now as i can get a Unix/Linux look and feel in Windows.+1 for the developer of this app.
