A 2006 {{Bollywood}} film, and Farhan Akhtar's remake of the 1978 film starring Creator/AmitabhBachchan. This version stars Creator/ShahRukhKhan, Creator/PriyankaChopra and Creator/KareenaKapoor. Follows the conflict between an Indian drug lord's lieutenant (a man known as Don), and his arch-rival; the cop DCP Desilva. After Don's death, Desilva replaces him with his lookalike Vijay in order to dismantle the drug cartel. Two other subplots involve Jasjit (who was screwed over by Desilva) and Roma (who was screwed over by Don.) [[EverybodyWasKungFuFighting Many many action scenes ensue]].

----
!!This film provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Roma.
* AirVentPassageway: Deepu and Jasjit pull this off.
* AndYourLittleDogToo: The criminal that threatens Jasjit's family. [[KickTheDog He follows through]] too, and kills Jasjit's wife.
* ArcWords: "I like wild cats." [[spoiler: [[ChekhovsGun It's also the reason Roma figures out that Don is, well, Don.]]]] Don's catchphrase, listed below, arguably fits this trope, as well.
* {{Badass}}: Most of the characters.
* BadassDriver: Several escape scenes qualify.
* TheBaroness: Anita.
* BestServedCold: Jasjit and Roma.
* BoundAndGagged: Kamini.
* CatchPhrase: "It's not difficult to catch Don. It's impossible." [[spoiler: True.]]
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler: Don and Vardhaan both. Don is the more successful of the two.]]
* CodeName: You never learn Don's real name.
* CombatPragmatist: Don [[spoiler: he immediately tries to shoot Kamini in the head when it's revealed she's working with the police.]]
* DeceptiveDisciple: Roma who is planning to betray Don.
* DetectiveMole: [[spoiler: Desilva who is, in fact, Vardhaan and a rival drug lord to Singhania.]]
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: ''Yeh Mera Dil'' functions as this.
* DrunkenSong: Vijay's high, not drunk, but it still counts.
* EiffelTowerEffect: Many, many establishing shots of the Petronas Twin Towers.
* ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl: Averted. Roma's shown training, so her martial arts skills don't come as much of a surprise.
* FanService: Camera lingering on Roma in a swimsuit.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Don.
* GambitPileup: The climax, during which everyone's plots collide.
* GenreSavvy: Officer Malik.
* HonorBeforeReason: Averted completely. Everyone fights dirty.
* IAmSong: Quite literally. ''Main Hoon Don'' = "I am Don."
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[{{Badass}} Don kills people with exploding briefcases and golf balls.]]
* INeverSaidItWasPoison: [[spoiler: Roma realizes Vijay has been Don all along when he says "I like wildcats." Slight subversion because he fully meant for her to realize it and revealed this information when there was nothing she could do about it.]]
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: Don and Anita.]]
* MacGuffin: Don's [[MagicFloppyDisk CD]] of drug cartel contact info.
* MagicFloppyDisk: For all the high tech stuff going on, Don seems to not know about the existence of zip discs.
* UsefulNotes/{{Malaysia}}: Shot there, and it's sponsored by Tourism Malaysia.
* MexicanStandoff: [[spoiler: Don and Vardhaan in their end battle.]]
* NeutralFemale: Averted. All the main female characters aid in the action somehow.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: Roma, as she realizes that her testifying that Don is Vijay [[UnwittingPawn led to him escaping from justice]]]]
* 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. ]]
* OffWithHisHead: Don really hates police informers.
* PragmaticAdaptation: [[spoiler: Many plot points from the original movie are altered. Possibly to maintain the element of surprise]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Ramesh ''tries'' this, anyway...
* SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere: Happens to Jasjit, until he agrees to steal diamonds for an unknown criminal. [[spoiler: Vardhaan was probably the one to set him up, but it's never fully explained.]]
* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler: ''No one'' gets their revenge on Don. In fact, [[TheBadGuyWins pretty much everyone is screwed over]] except for Jasjit.]]
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Cynical. Sooooo cynical
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Kamini. In a mild subversion it's Roma who chooses to avenge her. In fact, Kamini was also attempting to avenge her fridged boyfriend.
** Played straight with the death of Jasjit's wife, Geeta.
* ThemeSongReveal: ''Aaj Ki Raat'' as Roma taunts Anita. [[spoiler: In truth it turns out that Anita and Don are mocking Roma and it seems incredibly obvious on rewatches.]]
** [[spoiler: All the songs serve this purpose to a certain extent, actually. Even ''Khaike Paan''!]]
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: Singhania.]]
** Probably Ramesh, too.
* TookALevelInBadass: Vijay, who goes from a bumbling comic character to being able to engage in badass fight sequences. While in the sky after falling from a plane. [[spoiler: Subverted when it's revealed that Don knew about Vardhaan's plans from the start and had Vijay killed. The level of badass therefore makes sense for the character involved.]]
* TouchOfDeath: Don kills Kamini this way.
* TrickTwist: If you don't know the ending, don't let anyone give it away for you. Just watch the movie and be amazed.
* UnholyMatrimony: Don and Anita can be unexpectedly... adorable.
* ViewersAreMorons: [[spoiler: Subverted. Akhtar wants the viewer to go "wait. What?" and then have your suspicions proved correct.]]
* WouldntHitAGirl: Subverted in the first five minutes when Don punches a rival's henchwoman in the face.
* XanatosSpeedChess: [[spoiler: Don is forced in to this because of [[ThePlan Vardhaan's plots]].]]
