"Don" is a nearly 3-hour Hindi action-thriller that plays out like a collision between De Palma's "Scarface" and "Face/Off." The plot is consistently mind-boggling and impossible to predict as it twists and turns throughout the film's runtime, punctuated by the usual Bollywood dance numbers. The acting during the first 30 minutes is a bit hammier than I'm used to from Hindi cinema but, overall, "Don" is entertaining.
