Not even the hip location (Berlin, mostly, including an astonishingly spacious Tiergarten) can save this sequel to 2006’s Don – The Chase Begins Again. Khan swaggers through a convoluted (and periodically re-narrated) plot involving the corrupt president and vice president of a euro-printing bank. Beyond functioning as a vehicle for king Khan to curl his signature lip, raise a signature eyebrow and engage mid-kick in some badinage with the baddies, the film has little to offer. At some point, too much ham just jams the genre.
Don 2 | Directed by Farhan Akhtar (India 2011) with Shah Rukh Khan, Florian Lukas, Om Puri. Starts February 16
