Anupama is such a huge fangirl LOL  LOL @ her clarifying that she enjoyed more than 'bits and pieces'. SRK has that effect on women when he is in form LOL

I saw it and loved it. Yes there are script loopholes in the second half but the film
is a strong comment on celebrity culture. The ed is powerful especially as I kept thinking of Pratyusha's death and her repercussions. Would strongly recommend it. Detailed review tomorrow as it's late night here!

Short review without spoilers:
Loved the entire film. No dull moments. SRK did a fabulous job as an actor and so did the director. I dont know what are those people talking who say who didnt like the second half or the climax and found it totally bakwas. Did they even watch the film? There were a few flaws like twice it seems it will end but we had more. The second half could have been tighter. Also there is a chase sequence in Croatia. While the chase itself was thrilling it was needless. It seemed like it was added to showcase Croatia. Also VFX was a but patchy here and there. Overall rating is 4/5 with one mark deducted for the flaws.

Long review with SPOILERS:
The film starts off with Gaurav the fan and his antics to meet his idol. You get an insight that he is crazy when he threatens to jump off the train if he is not allowed to travel to meet Aryan. Perhaps his loving parents also encourage his crazyness by not stopping him when there was time. There we also get a glimpse of Aryan not entirely being the 'correct' personality when we get to know that he slapped a younger colleague. That was a take off on the Shrish Kunder incident while the younger colleague looks a lot like Siddharth Malhotra. He is even called Sid Kapoor. Infact there is a point where this character even says he cant read Hindi perhaps a comment on today's superstars who work in Hindi films but cant speak proper Hindi. Gaurav pulls off a stunt to teach Sid a lesson and sends proof of it to Aryan. Aryan in turn takes the help of some police officers to scare Gaurav so that he is dissuaded from pulling off such stunts in the future. Here again you feel Aryan perhaps should have dealt with the situation differently. Perhaps that would have saved both of them lot of trouble. Gaurav's dreams are shattered and he plots revenge. From here onwards starts Gaurav's revenge drama which is the second half. 
The first half only flaws I found was Gaurav's Delhi accent which was tough to follow for me. Also Gaurav's performance in the colony show was very long. They could have cut it out. The second half also had a few flaws like twice you feel the film will end. First when Aryan chases Gaurav in Croatia. Second after Aryan imitates Gaurav in the colony show and his parents call him down. 
There were some comments that the sympathies are shown to be with Aryan. If you watch the show in the cinema you will realize that is not the case at all. Infact sympathies are with Gaurav till the end. Everyone would cheer whenever Gaurav would make a move to beat Aryan like when he manages to escape Aryan in Croatia or when Aryan is about to repeat the what he used to keep saying that is without fans he is nothing but then remembers how Gaurav believed that and he didnt meet Gaurav's expectations on that. or when Gaurav comes to Aryan's house. In the climax scene when Gaurav tells 'Tu nahin samjhega' and lets go of Aryan's hand I had tears in my eyes. Not just for the character of Gaurav but for all the fans out there who spend their time and money on stars who have no idea about their existence. A fan's love for a star is one of the most selfless. And kudos to SRK for playing the superstar with flaws. Incidents of his life were used and he was shown to be someone who is probably as sanki as the fan. Someone who is not very 'correct'...a Dilli ka gunda as SRK calls himself who doesnt hesitate to take matters to his own hands and give it back instead of being the gentleman all the time. 
Also another thing to add is how the fact that hell hath no fury than a fan scorned. I have seen that happen many times in this very forum. Not really extreme levels like Gaurav but some of the star's biggest bashers have been their huge fans at one point and he disappointed them. 
Coming to the films's BO prospects despite me liking the film I honestly dont know how far it will go. Its a thriller and most likely a one time watch for most people. The story many would also find predictable. But I think it will enjoy good WOM. Atleast from the reactions of people coming out of the cinema.

Been hearing good reviews. I have an interest in celebrity culture and Fan seems to have showed it rightly so I hope I like the movie.
