Now it’s Roma (Priyanka Chopra) turn to make an entry, she is working with the Interpol and her aim in her life is to put Don behind the bars. And then there is Om Puri her mentor who decides to ‘retire hurt’, he has only one regret that in his career spanning over 33 years if there was one criminal whom he could not put behind the bars was Don. With heavy heart he hands over this responsibility to Roma.
But Don being the magnanimous one comes and surrenders just a few minutes after this conversation as if he knew what was going on in Om Puri’s life. While Roma arrests her no one tries to find out what made Don surrender.
Now begins the actual plot of Don 2, Don surrendered so that he could break out of prison along with Vardan (Boman Irani, his enemy). Vardhan agrees to come along, rest of the movie revolves around how Don plots and executes the plan of stealing currency printing plates from one of the central banks.
Performance wise SRK is at his best, Priyanka gets very little space to show her work, Lara was convincing in the limited space, Boman Irani and Kunal Kapoor did a fine job of supporting cast, it was Om Puri who was wasted, that role could have been done by anyone.

I have learnt not to mingle with strangers at the same time travel without getting restless and bored, I always carry novels which are atleast as thick as the best available encyclopedia, which I use as a means of self defense as soon as I sense that people are getting ready to start their 'let's know' session. I try to give an impression that I am lost in the world of magical web created by the words. While I enjoy reading I also keep a tab on the happenings taking place around me.
On day two, they started encouraging the male co-passenger who was not part of their group and was seating beside me to start a conversation….but to their bad luck I overheard them whispering. So I realized that I need to device an ingenious method this time to ward off the evil. Thanks to advances in technology and the network connections which follow wherever you go, I dialed a friend’s number and started a conversation which was not very loud, but loud enough to be heard by the guy sitting beside me. My friend on the other side asked, “How are your co-passengers?” To which I replied,“People can be so shameless, even after you give them all indications that you are not interested in having a conversation, they still keep trying.” To my luck the mid-thirties guy on the next seat who by now was almost ready to invade my guarded territory had some social sense, so on hearing this conversation he was somewhat embarrassed and decided to retrace his steps. Thank God!

Even in the case of such crimes, why capital punishment? The accused can be sentenced to life imprisonment and can be provided with professional counseling. In
It is difficult to say whether the same set of things will be applicable in the Indian context or not, as there are obvious cultural differences between the two countries.
