The film opens with a pronouncement: Don must die. This is the verdict of a European gangster cartel that fears its competitor’s plans to saturate the market with cheaper narcotics from Asia. Affable master-criminal Don bursts spectacularly onto the scene in Thailand where he is obliged to eliminate a small army of killers bristling with weapons. The eponymous hero of Bollywood blockbuster DON girds his loins for a counterattack involving Euro note printing plates. Berlin is the location for the big showdown from which Don – after a series of sensational stunts, captivating dance sequences and surprising twists – emerges victorious as the true king of Europe’s criminal underworld.
