Amitabh Bachchan's 1978 DON

The next big Shah Rukh Khan movie will be DON, a remake of the funkalicious 1978 Amitabh Bachchan movie, DON. If you haven't seen the original DON please do yourself a favor and go out and buy a copy post haste. There's an easy-to-find all-region, English-subtitled DVD and while the middle hour gets a little baggy and saggy (too many tightrope walkers) the opening hour and the finale are all wall-to-wall shag carpets, liquid eyeliner deployed by the gallon, and a gangster so cruel he kills a man because he hates his shoes. And the credits sequence is, quite possibly, the biggest slab of waka-waka 70's joycore this side of DISCO DANCER. So who has the cooler poster? The Shah Rukh Khan DON? Or the Amitabh Bachchan DON?

(And go check out a million other poster designs for the 1978 DON over on the Hot Spot)

Shah Rukh Khan's DON remake

Amitabh's DON is way cooler than Shah Rukh Khan's. That new poster just doesn't have the funkadelic feel of the 1978 poster(s).

Yeah, it's like the difference between the original Miami Vice and the pointless movie. The original is best and I've had the title track music in my head for years. The first 10 minutes of Don (pre-credits sequence and credits) are up there with the best of any badass 70s cinema ever made.

Posted by: David Austin | Jul 28, 2006 8:35:06 AM

Grady, I have to disagree with your verbiage there. Brownsploitation defines don much better than funkadelic. My feet covered in fungi are funka(funga?)delic. Not Don.
New poster and actor sucks.
Why oh why didn't I take the brown pill?

Posted by: anangbhai | Jul 28, 2006 3:17:37 PM

The original DON will be tough to top. The music score from the original DON will be damn near impossible to top. DON without the raw diesel tractor-grade funk of the original theme is not DON. Only James Bond is in the same league, as far as having theme music that says "This man - he's a badass" goes. I'd never cross ANYBODY who had that theme music, because I'd lose. Every time.

I normally don't rent or purchase "Bollywood" films but I'm intrigued by the plot and Grady's promotion as such, along with all your comments. Where's the best place to pick-up a reasonably priced copy?

Posted by: Douglas Roy | Aug 1, 2006 4:54:17 PM

We buy from dvddhamaka or nehaflix. Both have really cheap but good copies.

Posted by: Aimee | Aug 2, 2006 12:01:57 PM

omg.. shahruhk khan poster is much better than the old one.. it adds the theme of mystery and tension... not fake and pointless like amitach's poster. it luks unrealistic whereas sharukh khan is more drawing as it gives than feel to it. and this only fromt he poster the film is goin to be wayyyyyyy better!!! shahurkh khan is the best anyways... so whether the film is a hit (which it will be) or not, shahurkh khan will not fail to disapoint his fans as his performance will be magnificant as always!

Here is a small teaser for the new Don movie

Posted by: Sush | Aug 4, 2006 9:54:51 PM

Please please please don't do this to us, DON was a classic and will always remain a classic, somethings cannot be duplicated, and please my request to BOLLYWOOD, do not duplicate Amitabh Bachchans movie, that will be a big shame for bollywood, he is unique and no one can take his place, this movie will sucks a**

And Shahrukh if you are out of movie plots then retire, i think its high time. We had enough of your over acting

Do not spoil the young generation by making crappy movies. DON is the best there is the best there was and the best there ever will be.

I would be more happy if Amitabh Bachchan would have acted again as DON

And whats up with Udit Narayan trying to sing Khaike pan bana.... dude have mercy on us, please again do not duplicate Kishore Kumar

and rani mukherjee please do not even try to dance like helen, she was the greatest.

Posted by: Eric Cartman | Aug 12, 2006 11:42:28 AM

Maybe, Abhishek bachchan suits don more than shahrukh khan. SRk is no where close to AMitjee. Atleast Abhishek resemble Amitabh by looks and height. And katrina kaif plays a better of Roma (Zeenat aman) than priyanka.

Posted by: Sheeba Shahid | Aug 14, 2006 4:25:10 PM

well i think new will be much better than the old one and the reason is that it has shahrukh khan acting in it
i think this is enough to become the best.
SRK u r the best the only actor which is better than u is Dilip kumar and amitabh is noway near u guys he is a kid.

Posted by: yasir | Aug 21, 2006 11:46:55 PM

I cannot stand Shah Rukh KHan, think he's an over-actor! Never really liked him. However, if we are comparing the posters above, then I will have to say that the Don looks better. Obviously with todays technology the picture will look better.

Amitabh made his Don the success it was. The story was not the greatest but his Charisma and abilities made it a worth while picture.

It would be unfair to compare the two movies and I doubt that SRK is playing Amitabh's DOn. I am Sure Farhan and SRK are protraying a modern character.

Posted by: Amitabh-Fan | Aug 22, 2006 7:23:09 AM

plz dont compare srk & amitji bcoz both were super star
in different era,i hope srk will perform upto his best he can do he is great best of luck to him for don.bcoz shahrukh is the only who can act in the remake of film of amitji,dilip sahab and also justify with the character he is the real superstar,
compare to poster srk poster look more challenging

Posted by: riyaz | Aug 23, 2006 4:36:54 AM

I'm looking forward to the new DON. Sure, SRK is known to overact... A LOT... yet, somehow, I still WANT to believe that he's going to get this one right. Partly, I guess, this comes from not being 100% pleased with the original DON. Amitabh was great, as was the score, but I thought the film lost it's energy at several points, and could have been sooooooooooo much better. So let's give SRK a chance, and applaud him or crucify him later.

Posted by: Paul | Aug 23, 2006 11:03:43 AM

Please take it from me "Don ka remake banana mushkil hi nahi , namunkin bhi hai". Amitabh's DON was a classic. I don't know what shahrukh/akhtar is trying to prove by remking this classic.

I think mr. shahrukh is more into comparing himself with biggies like amitabh, which is going to go in vain. Nobody can take place of Amitabh and his movies, he is legend.

Shahrukh should know his limitations and he should act within his boundaries, as ram gopal varma rightly said once "Shahrukh is nothing without a good package".

The ease at which Amitabh performed in DON can not be duplicated by anyone else, he is awesome. I still remember all the dialogues of DON classic from A-Z and its never going to be a boredom if i watch this movie 100 times. Old DON still has ability to thrill anyone.

You may replace any character of this classic, but you can not replicate the verdict "Don Classic was a superhit" and that magic can not be created again.

Don is Don...Mr. Bacchan is Mr. Bacchan and Shahrukh is not Mr. Bacchan!

Posted by: creativitybug | Aug 25, 2006 3:58:53 AM

No matter how many special effects you do, no matter how much you try to tone down sharukhs overacting no matter how much technologically sound u try to make this movie bottom line is "don remake ko banana mushkil hi nahi namumkin hain"

Posted by: Deep | Aug 26, 2006 4:36:01 PM

The new poster looks like DON is constipating and sitting on a crapper

The old poster still rocks, awesome

Posted by: Deep | Aug 26, 2006 4:38:46 PM

Shahrukh is way ahead of Amitabh...do not under estimate his potential by comparin him to Big b..god guys get a life!Despite an ailing back his devotion towrds work is commendable..he rocks n wil continue to govern ths place..he is at an unattainable position..n wil leave an indelible impression on d minds of his fans with DON yet again...

This DON is very contemporary vit modern day gizmos n gadgets..ppl r in for a a breath taking mindbogglin thriller this diwali

King khan rockssss man

Posted by: swats | Aug 30, 2006 4:14:17 AM

SRK is the best!!! i saw him while DON music release & he is superb .....i know BIG B is at a stage where no one can reach ..but in INDIAN cinema After BIG B its only & only SHAHRUKH KHAN.

he is the KING!!!!

Posted by: salonishah | Aug 30, 2006 4:21:34 AM

Guys I checked out the music of the new Don and here are my views on it.

Track 1 - Main Hoon Don : Starts off greatly, great music, original lyrics and Shaan has done a great job. Rating: 4/5

Track 2 - Yeh Mera Dil: Seems like just another umpteenth remixes of the same track available in the market. Whats the unique factor about the song? Rating: 2.5 / 5

Track 3 - Morya Re: Original music, lyrics. SEL are best at it. Sung excellently by Shankar. 4/5

Track 4 - Khaike Paan Banaras: Starts off great, cool rap intro by Udit and midway rap by Shahrukh, looses track after that, seems like "yes one more" remix. SEL are not remix artistes, are they? Frankly they are one of my favorites but not on this one, sorry to say. Udit was his energetic best but can he ever compare to Kishore Da? Rating 2.5 / 5

Track 5 - Aaj ki raat : Nice number, original lyrics and original music though sometimes it feels like a rehash of Raat baaqui from Namak Halaal. Rating 3/5

Track 6 - The Don theme : Nice fresh take on the original Don theme, slow and funky, a good number. The original theme of the 1978 was a fast, pacy instrumental. Good fresh view from SEL

Track 7 - Don revisited : Cool remix from Midevial Punditz. Rating 3/5

Track 8 - Main Hoon Don Remix: Another cool remix of the the song. Rating 3/5

So where does the USP of the album lie? I think only in the three fresh / originial songs. All in all an average album and below what was expectated from SEL.
I was wondering if Bally Sagoo cud have done a better work.

Posted by: Ashish | Aug 31, 2006 5:01:02 AM

As far as Shahrukh goes, you can't compare him with Amitabh. How many hit box-office action movies as Shahrukh given? Amitabh excelled at both romantic and action movies, but can you say the same thing abt Shahrukh? He has a more choclatey persona than being an action star.

Posted by: Ashish | Aug 31, 2006 5:03:36 AM

I think the original picture of DON is the best....it really ROCKS!It looks very original and its impression is there in everyone's mind even till date.The new picture of DON looks very common.Its not unique at all.
The original DON is MASTERPIECE.Its not a good idea to remake it.
I request the directors not to attempt to remake classics.
AMITHAB BACHCHAN's movies are Great and he is the Greatest actor in the world....no one can match him.

Posted by: terry | Aug 31, 2006 5:57:44 AM

hahahaha.. was fun reading some of this kool comments. well to me it looks like Shahrukh khan has done a big mistake by assuming that he wud be able to play in the remake of Amitabh's DON. He just doesn't have that personality , that VOICE, that Charisma. He is good for DDLJ type of roles but DON is just not his type or his cup of tea.
He should be prepared now that he has done this choice. there will be comparisions and chances are his this attempt would be a failure.

I agree with someone's comment above that Abhishek would have made a better DON then shahrukh as he has that personality that Amitabh has, he has that Voice , that power, that punch , that DON (Amitabh's DON) had.

Good luck to Shahrukh and Farhan !

Posted by: Ritesh | Sep 1, 2006 11:18:35 PM

Those that have said that SRK is not a good actor above must be stupid no1..or blind...b'cos he is the greatest actor who has acted in many roles and brought out emotion and charisma as an actor. And one of the guys above is correct. NEVER compare SRK and Amitabh Bachan because they are actors from two different era's. I'd also like to finish on the note that I think that SRK is the now the leading legend and the current(and will be for many decades to come) the most enthusiastic actor in Bollywood and will always perform to his best.(Don't know how someone above said that he is an "Over-actor" because that is totally a load of crap!

Posted by: KP | Sep 3, 2006 10:10:39 AM

Leave it. Amitabh Bachhan's "Don" was, is and will always be classic. Look at the songs, the music, the story. It will never be compared as compared to SRK's Don. And the 2007 Sholay will be nothing as compared to the sholay of Amitabh.

Posted by: Mazhar | Sep 3, 2006 8:46:49 PM

srk not suited for DON, rajpal yadav would be taken in place of srk

Posted by: amit | Sep 15, 2006 3:49:48 AM

I'll buy the original Don tomorrow and look forward to comparing the remake--but not to criticize one actor over the other. They are both totally different in style and look. Amitabh's deep voice cannot be matched by anyone. I love to watch him dance and he has a certain twinkle in his eye at times that makes you forget he's acting--that you're watching a movie. Shahrukh has that great smile, that innocent boyishness that can suit up and become serious and even mysterious so fluidly--seamlessly.

Bollywood is big enough for Amitabh AND Shahrukh. I love them both!

I agree, SRK overacts at times--especially in the cutesy boy meets girl films, but he's still great...and he's dedicated to the art, which I think is important. There are so many fly by nights who want nothing more than their 15 minutes in fame. It's great that Bollywood has two such powerhouses as AB and SRK!

The both rock!!!

Posted by: indygirl | Sep 16, 2006 11:11:36 PM

Don would be totally absurd movie, i dont think that srk is suited to it, becoz his image always seem to be LoverBoy in bollywood, who could do only romantic scenes and make people cry, with his cry,
Don needs a man of the substance, who has a loud noise and who looks to be complete man,
it will be appreciated only becoz of Farhan Akhtar, becoz he is a versatile person, good knwledge,
well! i think no need to discuss more on prev don or coming don, are tum logon ko kuch tip mil rahi hain kya?
apna kaam karo, why should we bother about this matter, kaam-kaj nahin hain kya aur?

Posted by: amit | Sep 17, 2006 9:10:07 PM

Shahrukh's not even in the same league as Mr. Bachhan. He looks so weak and old and puny personality wise in the new DON. The only thing I can say is thank god for special effects which might save the movie from being a flop.

Old DON + Amitabh Bachhan = Classic Hit

Posted by: Pete | Sep 18, 2006 10:58:26 AM

As commented on top by most of my friends, DON by Amitabh will be tough to top. Take the dialoge of DON for a proof. "DON (of Amitji) ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi namumkin hain". As our friends pointed out earlier, leave aside Amitji's movies as they are a class apart. By giving a new look for the posters a new look, or making it even more stylish, does not make a great movie. Can not blame SRK, as any one would like to act the roles the DON of Bollywood made a classic. As a friend said, if to be made remake of it, Abishek would have been a better choice.

Posted by: Pramod | Sep 19, 2006 4:22:57 AM

here i strongly support what amit has posted. Sharukh must do roles which suites him. Amitabh Bachchan is having a towering personality and a very good voice with versatile form of acting suites the character DON very well while Sharukh with 5 feet 7 inches with a trembling voice is going to spoil the character. here i have a request to sharukh. please try to wear your own trousers.

The original poster sucks, its a cartoon drawing, the new poster is actually 'real' for the people who did not notice, so ya, the remakes of most movies are usually good, but SRK is a great actor, so he will do a good job in this movie.

Posted by: Aman | Sep 25, 2006 2:16:39 AM

U people are fucked, you dont know what you are talking about, and you are jealous of these actors whether it be amitabh or shahrukh, all you guys are good for is pointing fingers so FUCK U ALL !!!! If you feel so offended in anyone doing a role in film, why dont you go yourselves and do a role, or dont watch the movie, do us all a favor and keep your mouths shut!!! You Fuckers!!!

Posted by: Vijay Anand | Sep 26, 2006 7:26:27 AM

dont compare old and new...Farhan Aktar liked the old don so he decided to make a new one with shahrukh...its as simple as that...Even if this new don happens to be better or more entertaining, the first one will remain a classic simply because it is older...i dont understand the point in comparing...they are both produced at differant times...Also, when the first movie was made it was an original story. this new don is just a remake. Shahrukh and amitabh are both good actors.

Posted by: chirag | Sep 26, 2006 8:30:51 PM

OK, lets get serious. Sharukh will do a crap job acting as Don. And no matter what you all say, he will get compared for sure. He probably knew what he was getting into.

I personally feel he made a big ass mistake. He is not fit to take on the Big B's rolls.

Sharukh, please stick to the sobby love stories

Posted by: s | Sep 28, 2006 5:10:22 PM

Oh and the original poster is a painting. And I think it looks allot better than the new one.

Some movies should be left alone. Too many people have a bond with the original....They should have left it alone.

Big mistake Sharukh.....YOUR DONE.

Posted by: S | Sep 28, 2006 5:12:50 PM

The original DON was a classic and will always be Amitabh sahab's could only be duplicated by either Abhishek or Sunjuy Dutt but not Shahrukh Khan, i get the funny feeling that SRK just cant come out of his KKKKKKKIRAN mould no matter how big a film he may do and follwing the Big B's footsteps is not everyone's stronghold so plz me if there is a comic sequel of don we can have Mr SRK for it

Posted by: mansoor | Sep 29, 2006 1:57:08 AM

i think srk is not good enough 2 play DONS role, i think he is worst actor of this era he just try 2 over act many time, look at amitabh still standing tall and rockin, guyz plz dont try 2 compare amitji with srk amitabh is legend and stay legend nobody can even touch his feets not also srk,he is ultimate and RECENT MOVIE DON WILL B UTTER FLOP

Posted by: muslima | Oct 12, 2006 1:24:41 AM

SRK need to take a long long a very long break from movies. What is wrong with these guys - SRK, Javed Akhtar, Farhan Akhtar. SRK could not make an image as a HERO. He is real life villian it is obvious from him trying to remake BIG B's DON. Javed is ruining his own image by leting his son make this movie. They all need some real help.

Posted by: MehNee | Oct 16, 2006 6:13:37 PM

Shaan can't become Kishore Kumar even by sing the title song. They should copyright every movie in such a way that no one should be allowed to remake except the original movie producer or director. Did anybody try to remake any BOND movie in Hollywood? Bollywood is killing their own history by making remaking , remixing etc. etc.

Posted by: MehNee | Oct 16, 2006 6:19:10 PM

The guy swearing in this comment page is queer he doesn't know what he's talking about because everyone is forming there own opinions and thats what this is for so if you are reading this then you are a Moron!

Posted by: Baadshah | Oct 21, 2006 12:19:24 PM

i don't think srk is the best actor after big b infact not at all they are other great actors, srk does'nt suit the role for don they have picked wrong person for the role, abbishek would have fitted role far much better.

Posted by: cool dude | Oct 21, 2006 7:00:38 PM

Good New Plot! Good Direction! and Movie!! However, the new Don has exposed a very important aspect. It very clearly shows that SRK needs a hell lot of efforts by all others to make a film a hit. Original Don was a movie with '78 style posters','baggy and saggy', 'liquid eyeliner'. But it was a hit because of the performance of one guy: AMITABH BACHCHAN! I challenge SRK to turn such a low cost & no special effects movie a hit only by his original acting (or overacting). Dude Amitabh ki tarah Don karna Mushkil hi nahin Namumkin hai!! Hail Amitabh!!

Posted by: Prasoon & Chaudhary | Oct 26, 2006 9:35:25 PM

Hi guys, we r all wasting our time in comparing the gold and bronze. Amit Ji is the real golden performer at all times whereas S.Khan is trying to become gold from bronze which is not in his potentiality...so better stay away from copying or imitating Amit Ji...Only Small B. can afford to be closer..!That's a real fact..!

Posted by: Kailash | Oct 26, 2006 11:43:46 PM

In brief, comparing the 2 posters, the old one justifies itself a bigger positive impact with power, focus, action, and "James Bond looking style". This is the best!!!!!!

Posted by: Kailash | Oct 26, 2006 11:50:13 PM

Hi guys,
it was fun to read all the comments above about the Don,well thr is NO camparison between AB and SRK.
SRK can never do the same job as AB in don,though SRK is one of the best in the business right now and thr is no doubt in it.
i think it was a mistake of SRK to act in the movie,and as we see remake of SHOLAY is coming too and that would be a mistake of AB to accept the role of GABBAR as he wont be able to do it as great as Amjad Khan did it.

Posted by: Zaheel | Oct 28, 2006 4:53:07 PM

Acting as Gabbarsingh, there is no doubt Amit Ji will shake that movie as he is too good and perfect in any role proposed to him. In fact, he proved himself to be the world's best film performer and don't forget about the "Legion d'honneur" from France.

Secondly, Jr Bachan will beyond question prove his potential in Sholay.

Enjoy the movie soon!!

Posted by: Kailash | Oct 29, 2006 8:44:32 AM

those who are saying the old don was better are uptight people who saw the old don when they were young and it reminds them of "their time" the new one is much mucb etter. i mean when amitabh throws the bag some dust goes in the air hahaha funny funny, but when srk throws it, it explodes and there is realistic fire. the ending is much much better though!! i love how the movie sticks to the line that "don ko pahkadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai." you people are making it into a amitab vs srk thing, amitab is a better aktor i mean srk isnt meant for this type of movie. abhishek would have been better for this. however when you compare old don vs new (notice i said old not "asli") don new is better. simply because of the way don does things!! amitab performs better as vijay while shah rukh performs better as don and i am much more impressed by don than plain old vijay. simple as that.

Posted by: new don is better | Oct 29, 2006 8:51:36 AM

after seeing Big B's movies and shahrukh khan's movies ive come to this conclusion.

there are 2 classes of actors:-
Class 1 (top most class) Amitabh Bachan
Class 2 (next level) SRk, Amir Khan,Abhishek, Saif, Sanjay Dutt etc etc

don't EVER compare AB with SRK (SRK is no match), this is all media made i guess.

sorry sharrukh,
u could not prove with Don what u wished to :), u are still where u are. keep doing 'karvachauth scene' movies, ur fit only for that.

Posted by: jaibhai | Oct 29, 2006 12:45:13 PM

u stupid shits, the new one is easily better. nowaday movies have better tech. u cant even compare amitabh to sharukh srk is just da best there is in bollywood movies. most of you are just fucking stupid shits trying to support amitabh. you all know from inside that the new don is much better

Posted by: anonymous | Oct 30, 2006 7:12:33 AM

i was not trying 2 copy amitabh bachan as i know i am much better. he is a lula. i can do a better movie in an hour. what about kal ho na ho, that was a phat film all u amitabh fans (do 1)

Posted by: Shahrukh khan | Oct 31, 2006 2:33:53 AM

Hey...SRK Fans...do not get angry over the truth guys..!
Don't be perplexed if Srk could not reach the height of Big B...coz it's not written in destiny but may be while keep on trying copying some more actors like Bobby Deol or Om Prakash Ji, he might touch the skies.

That was just a consolation for u dear fans!!!

Love u all!

srk is he best end of convo.... his just wkd.. ppl sayin that amitach is gud... srk had to recreate the whole film and try it mke it beta.. how hard is tht. n the bst thing is he did it!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Nisha | Nov 7, 2006 1:55:31 PM

Now you all guys have to stop just an moment. I personlly loved Big B befor, but I stopet many years to see Indian movies. but after I saw some Srk`s movies. So I just said wowww. Did India has actor like Ms. Srk??? Becouse he is realy genius, I never ever have seen an actor lik him in the whole Worled. He is just the best in the Worled. I wishe you India becouse you have some people like Ms. Srk.

So Guys I am living in Norway, So I have drived 3 hours to see just the Don, but Srk proved for me that he deserves to go to India only to see his movies. So he is the best

Ms. Big B is just Over for long time. With all respect, but you all guys, your love to Ms.Big B lead you to to be blind, and cannot define between the good cinama and good actor as Ms Srk, and bad cinama.

my gud bless you all, and open yours eyes and thinkings

bay the way Iam kurdish boy

well shahrukh khan is jealous of amitabh and the great dilip sahib he is doing more remakes upcoming movie will be andaz apna apna this time he will try and beat ammir khan coz he is gonna perform as prem which aamir khan did in andaz andaz apna apna 1 i know shahrukh is a good actor but he shouldnt try and beat great actors like dilip sahib amit jee and aamir khan

Posted by: truth | Nov 18, 2006 5:42:47 AM

How old are all you SRK fans? Twelve? You come across as either daft or childish. Think twice about how your comment will read before posting. If anyone reasonable person ever thought that SRK could pull off this remake they'd certainly be disabused of that notion by the tone, arguments and maturity of his supporters here.

Forget old Don v/s new Don. Any movie with SRK cannot be worth watching. That guy simply does not know how to act PERIOD. I will ask all you kids (SRK fans) after 25 years - beta KANK, DDLJ, Main Hoon Na, Duplicate, Asoka, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na ya DON dekhoge. And, most of you will respond back - eeeewwww, Those movies had no substance at all.

You people going on about technology and so on are true.This should have meant that the new don would have been unsurpassable but despite holding the 'technology' advantage over the new don,it just about averaged at the box office.Can you imagine how well the old Don would have done had it had the 'technology' advantage??..The old Don was miles and miles better and Amitabh didn't have to rely on half as many remakes as Shah Rukh does..Shah Rukh is 'a remake of Amitabh and Dilip's abilities possibly at their worst'

I couldn't agree more to Parvez's view-point. Most of SRK fans are in their teen age or even younger who are not acting connoisseur..
Amitabh's old movies sound so refreshing even today and that's just because of his acting. I am not sure who will find SRK's Dil to pagal hai or Kuch kuch hota hai and so on refreshing now if they are watched again and again.
I really doubt if SRK movies perform well without BEST of the banners.
Amitabh Bachchan can not be compared even with the likes of Al Pacino or Robert de nero, his class is higher than them, let alone SRK.
Just watch Dewaar and Agneepath, I think these two movies are enough to make him the biggest bollywood star.
I do admire SRK for the energy that he brings into his roles, however, he has his limitations and his prowess is on lower scale.
