Don Telugu Dubbed Movie Review: Sivakarthikeyan is one of Tamil cinema’s most underappreciated actors. His popularity skyrocketed with the success of Doctor in Telugu. With his self-assurance, he creates Don, an action comedy-drama picture. Don was a much-anticipated film in Tamil, but it was ultimately released in Telugu on May 13, 2022, and the film received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. So, let’s have a look at Don in detail and see if it’s worth seeing.
Don is a film about college life. Don (Sivakarthikeyan) is a laid-back college student whose father has always preached to him about the importance of education and how it can only lead to success. However, he is uninterested in education and is on a quest to discover his talent and master it. In the meantime, he becomes a troublemaker for the teachers and principal because he points out students’ problems. When one of his friends dies, though, the story takes an unexpected path. Will he finally discover his talent? The rest of the story is about what happened after his companion died.

Sivakarthikeyan is not only an actor but also one of the film’s producers and a talented lyricist. Coming to Don, the story is not new, as we have seen many films dealing with college life, student problems, and so on, but what made Don engaging was the comedy. The comedy worked out quite well, and you could sit for two and a half hours just for the comedy. Other than that, there are no emotions in this film, and the director failed to blend emotion.
The film’s flow has ups and downs, with the film beginning well but then descending into typical college drama after 15 minutes. However, during the proceedings, director Cibi Chakaravarthi addressed one of the fundamental concerns of self-discovery, in which many individuals live for others rather than for themselves, and this point would resonate with many young people.
The first half ended with hilarious moments and songs; there was nothing new to see in the first half, but the second half picks up when student Don and Principle begin a cat and mouse game, and the ending could have been better.
Soori has justified his character, Priyanka Arul Mohan looks cute but she doesn’t have much scope to perform, and the rest of the actors did well. Sivakarthikeyan has just killed it with his screen presence, and SJ Suryah as Principle has left us dumbfounded.
The photography of K.M Bhaskaran is not up to par, but Anirudh’s music never fails to wow, and Sivakathikeyan and Anirudh have become a successful duo. The remainder of the technical staff performed an excellent job.
Finally, Don is a one-time viewing film that is a must-see for children.
