* NotHisSled: The original Don, released in 1978 and starring Amitabh Bachchan as Don, [[spoiler: had Don actually die much earlier, in D'Silva's car, so viewers remembering it may think, till the end, that it's Vijay doing all that... till the twist at the end. It was probably for practicality more than shock value - Akhtar is releasing a sequel in December 2011, which, given the original ending, would have been difficult - it was happy and resolved everything. ]]
