Much like the script of the film, Don 2’s music is bland and insipid. Music composer Shankar Ehsaan Loy are now working on the background music for additional scenes you will soon be able to watch on the DVD of the Shahrukh Khan starrer
Don 2, many felt, did not live up to the expectations and curiosity it generated among fans of the franchise. Its music too did not charm the audience. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s subtle and classic music compositions were not accepted too well, especially for a film that was supposed to be an edge-of-the seat action thriller. Now to make up for the inadequacies the music trio of Don 2, we hear, is working on the background score for some additional scenes to be incorporated into the DVD of the film. Going by the numbers in the film, we can sense that the music composers were in two minds about the whole thing.They had to keep the memorable tracks of the first film and yet pay homage to the original songs by introducing a totally fresh sound. The attempt went kaput, unfortunately. Hopefully the talented composers will now reclaim lost ground and come up with some original work for the DVD. We wish them luck.
