Farhan Akhtar's remake of the Amitabh Bachchan starrer blockbuster Don was anything but a letdown. Giving his own twist to the original story, the remake distressed from the original story, giving way to a sequel.

The remake of Don is filled with its own twists and turns along with new characters that'll blow your mind away.
