Don(also known asDon: The Chase Begins Again) is a 2006 Bollywood action thriller film directed by Farhan Akhtar , and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani under Excel Entertainment . The film stars Shahrukh Khan in double role, opposite Priyanka Chopra in main roles; whilst Arjun Rampal , Boman Irani , Ishaa Koppikar and Om Puri appear in supporting roles. It is a remake of the 1978 filmof the same name, and follows a simple man from the city of Mumbai who is recruited by a police officer to masquerade as Don, the leader of an international gang of smugglers.

The film hit theaters worldwide on 20 October 2006, and screened at the Berlin Film Festival .Upon release, the film received negative critical response, however it grossed overINR104 crores worldwide, and managed to succeed at the box office, being declared aHitin India and aBlockbusterin Overseas Markets by Box Office India.It spawned a sequel in 2011,Don 2which was a even bigger success than the original.

In 2006, the drug trade is booming. The Malaysian Intelligence and Anti-Narcotic Department are called upon for assistance by their Indian counterparts. The Indian team is headed by DCP D'Silva ( Boman Irani ), who wants to break the drug operations of a drug lord named Singhania. Helping him along the way is Malik ( Om Puri ). Both of them know that in order to capture Singhania, they must capture his most loyal ally Don ( Shahrukh Khan ). Don is extremely dangerous - he has even been known to kill one of his own men Ramesh, who attempted to leave Don and his gang without informing Don first. Ramesh's fiance Kamini ( Kareena Kapoor ) decides to help D'Silva arrest Don but in the process, she is also killed by Don. Now, Ramesh's sister Roma ( Priyanka Chopra ) manages to get her way into Don's gang by persuading them that she is wanted by the police - her real plan is to murder Don in order to avenge her brother and his fiance.

Don and his gang, consisting of Anita ( Eesha Koppikhar ) his girlfriend and Narang ( Pawan Malhotra ) travel to India to trade some drugs. D'Silva and his team follow them there - Don is injured fatally during a police chase. D'Silva keeps this a secret - he decides to track down a look alike of Don named Vijay (also Shahrukh Khan) and asks him to pose as Don so that he (D'Silva) can get the gang arrested. Vijay agrees when D'Silva promises to admit Deepu ( Tanay Chheda ), a child Vijay looks after, to a good school. Meanwhile, Jasjit ( Arjun Rampal ), Deepu's real father has just been released from prison and becomes bent on killing D'Silva. This is because Jasjit was committing a crime in order to save Deepu and his wife from a gang of criminals and D'Silva had Jasjit arrested, thereby preventing Jasjit from saving his wife from death.

Vijay is admitted to the same hospital as Don, who is in a coma. Vijay, through an operation, soon gets all the scars which Don has, put on his body. Suddenly, Don dies of heart failure. When Vijay (as Don) re-enters the gang, he will have lost his memory - the more he learns about Don, the more he shall remember. The gang have a disc which contains some of their most vital information. Vijay agrees to take this disc to D'Silva - Roma decides to go with him. When they arrive, Roma attempts to kill Vijay (thinking he is Don). However, D'Silva arrives and tells Roma about his and Vijay's plan. Roma and Vijay now find themselves falling in love. D'Silva soon finds Singhania and kills him. In a police raid, Vijay and the gang members are all arrested by Malik and his team. D'Silva is killed in a blast - this is unfortunate for Vijay because D'Silva is the only person who could prove that Vijay is not the real Don. Vijay escapes and tries to pursue the disc he gave to D'Silva in order to prove his innocence.

Jasjit still continues to try and find his son, Deepu. It is revealed he is in possession of the disc - he receives a telephone call saying that if he wants to see his son again, he will have to bring the disc to the men who have Deepu hostage. At this meeting, it is revealed that D'Silva has been alive all along and is actually Vardhan, the long time rival of Singhania. Jasjit manages to escape with his son. He meets Vijay and Roma and reveals that D'Silva is really Vardhan - the three hatch a plot to help Malik arrest Vardhan. The next day, Jasjit arranges a meeting with Vardhan, saying he will hand over the disc. Vardhan and Vijay engage in a fight until Vardhan is defeated and arrested. Vijay gets badly injured during the fight, and is rushed to hospital - before he leaves, Roma confesses her love for him. In a final twist, it is revealed that the real Don is alive and was pretending to be Vijay the whole time. In the hospital, Don quickly recovered from the coma and overheard D'Silva's conversation with Vijay. He switched places with Vijay, meaning Vijay died of heart failure. It is also revealed that the disc Don gave to the police was fake. In the end, Don and Anita both escape, knowing the police nor Roma will never capture Don.
