Wow! Overall reviews are great.
And for the first time, we're having screening of SRK movie in Barcelona. I'm definitely going.
So tomorrow we meet Gaurav. So excited, can't wait!Dancing
 
yeah the major review that is negative is KRK's...I trust his reviews...but KRK also misses a few times and I am praying that his review for FAN is one of themOuchLOL
I don't really care about his reviews. I'm going to watch it for SRK. After years, he has experimented something. He gave what I wanted. So now I'm just gonna support him. I don't care if the movie is predictable or unrealistic or even if it fails. He tried, and I love him for that.

Fan: SRK returns to form

Shah Rukh Khan is out of his comfort zone and great as both Gaurav and Aryan. The film? Well, ye dil maange even more.

It's rarely that I have seen an audience step out of the theatre so sombrely after a Shah Rukh Khan movie. Perhaps in the mood and flow of the film which isn't quite as light-hearted and feel-good as SRK starrers are preordained to be. Fan is completely out of SRK's comfort zone. There is hardly any romance, not a single song, little to laugh about. Instead there is plenty of action, chases (on the walls of Mumbai buildings, Dubrovnik roofs and finally Delhi roads) and unbridled emotions of the very dark and serious kind - in a film that's all about a fan's pursuit of the star and then the star trying to hunt down the fan. And SRK takes a huge stride forward to make the twin roles of Gaurav Chanana and Aryan Khanna his very own in a way that you can't imagine anyone else quite fitting the bill.

Years ago, in an interview, SRK had told me, "I do walks for my films that nobody notices. This is the bane of my life. I do walks to prepare my characters and no one takes note of the ******* serious actor in me." Few would be able to ignore the serious actor in him in Fan. He goes method acting with Gaurav, gives him a distinct gait and mannerisms and the typically Dilli way of talking. He plays to the gallery with him, the underdog you keep rooting for despite his transgressions. It marks a return of the most beloved of his flawed personae of yore " Kabhi Haan Kabhie Naa, Yes Boss, Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman " cast in a different, more devious Darr and Baazigar mould. The entire first half goes in setting up Gaurav, at times quite heavily and tediously so. But you still enjoy it all for what the film does with SRK's own 25-year-long stardom"how it creates a new entity of this Fan from bits and pieces of his own earlier avatars. No wonder then, the wistful channelling of SRK's journey as the star, complete with old clips, make perfect sense here. It doesn't irritate like the pointless homages and referencing some other recent YRF films have been prone to doing.

The makers very interestingly also play with the fans in the audience. There would anyhow be many who would travel w/t (without ticket) on a train to Mumbai and stay in room number 205 at Delight hotel in Charni Road and then soon realise the illusions and delusions that surrounds their love for a star. As Gaurav himself says: "Kitna bhi chilla lo awaaz jaati nahin us tak (However much you may scream, your voice won't reach him)." Isn't it SRK talking to his fans when he tells them that he is nothing without them and then again when he tells Gaurav to be more than just a fan?

Gaurav may hog the screen but for me Aryan Khanna, the star in descent (with a new guy Sid Kapoor on the rise), is perhaps even more interesting, both as a character and as the star that we have known SRK as lately. The plastic home, wife and kids notwithstanding there is a restlessness, an edginess, a certain dark sense of humour about Aryan, the star who hasn't quite faded but could be on the verge of imminent oblivion in the future. It rings a bell. The scene in which he finds himself alone in an auditorium which ideally should be full of fans tellingly captures the star at crossroads. In the figure of Aryan the film invokes a star in search of a reinvention while reinventing the star who plays the role, i.e. SRK himself.

While my stand on SRK is unequivocal, the reaction to the film remains conflicted " a bit like how the film ends. There is a sense of completion, of things coming a full circle and yet a feeling of loss. As though, something still remains amiss. The inexplicable extremities of the two characters, their egos and eccentricities, left me a bit incredulous as did the fact that no one intrudes in the conflict between the two (in fact the cops of both London and Mumbai don't care to listen to the star in trouble) and that Gaurav boldly manages to go wherever he wants to with no one stopping him. But then had there been more logic there would have been no film. There are loads of significant moments scattered all over the film, especially about the star-fan binary, which somehow doesn't come together well cohesively.

Having said that one thing is quite clear: SRK couldn't have found a better vehicle than Fan, both as an actor and as a celebration of the highs and the lows of his own stardom. A stardom whose enormity he'd himself find difficult to wrap around his head. As Gaurav tells him: "Rehn de. Tu nahin samjhega (Let it be, you won't understand)." Will stars ever understand their fandom? Not quite. Nor will some logical journalists like yours truly.

One last point. However much Maneesh Sharma may travel from Dilli to Mumbai, London and Dubrovnik, the Capital culture (West Delhi to be precise) firmly stays by his side and in his frames. It's in the lovely lingo ""one way wali girlfriend""in the nostalgia for watching films at Delite, Novelty, Golcha. Why, he even sets up Gaurav's shop in the same marketplace as the one shown in Band Baaja Baarat. No wonder this crib then " that Sohan Halwa from Ghantewala wasn't Sohan Halwa at all, it was actually Karachi Halwa.

Keywords: Fan, Shah Rukh Khan, Maneesh Sharma

15 Dialogues From Shah Rukh Khan's 'Fan' You Just Can't Forget

Posted on: 06:49 PM IST Apr 15, 2016 | Updated on: 7:13 pm,Apr 15,2016 IST

There are certain roles that help an actor earn huge Box Office returns, and then there are those who make viewers rethink an actor. This could be because actors came up with a performance viewers thought they couldn't have ever pulled off or because they played against the known' and well-accepted' image. And we obviously can't contain our excitement after watching Shah Rukh Khan move out of his comfort zone, try out something new and also find huge success in it.

While we can't stop talking about Shah Rukh Khan on his incredible potential to play to his strength and also try out something new, his film Fan' is winning hearts with its barbed comments, interesting conversations and veiled threats. We bring to you the most unforgettable dialogues from his film 'Fan'.

 A still from the film.

Mumbai: On Friday, April 15, Shah Rukh Khan's much awaited film Fan' hit the theatres. The film, which was already a hot topic in the B-town for the longest, received warm welcome from the audiences all over the country.

With film witnessing almost houseful reaction on its first shows of the day, has created frenzy among SRK fans. Many are applauding Shah Rukh Khan for his commendable performance as Aryan Khanna and Gaurav Chandna in the film.

The chase between SRK and his fan in Fan' is worth the hype it created. While so far we have read many interviews of Shah Rukh Khan, here's his biggest fan, Gaurav's first ever interview.

In the interview, Gaurav talks about his obsession for Aryan Khann, his earliest memories of him and how he has never loved anyone more than his idol among many other things.

King Khan fans make way... our hero is back with a bang!

Shah Rukh Khan's track record at the box office might have been impressive in all these years, but we were beginning to miss our hero's hatke roles on screen. Somehow this year Shah Rukh has decided to treat his fans with two very different looking movies - Fan and Raees. And whatever the box office figures might say after catching Fan all I'd like to say is Shah Rukh should be very proud of Fan. Strangely Fan happens to be about a superstar much like SRK, but apart from a few funny references to the actor's real life and the shots outside Mannat, King Khan makes you forget that it is him you are seeing on screen. Shah Rukh's success lies in the fact that he portrays Aryan Khan much like any other character or has he really unmasked himself and bared his real self to the cameras for Maneesh Sharma's movie. In either case this role works out perfectly.

Shah Rukh Khan the actor and the hero have both succeeded with Fan. The reason is that you connect, sympathise, empathise and are angered by both Aryan Khanna and his Jabra Fan Gaurav. Maneesh Sharma takes a lot of liberties sitting on the director's chair, but SRK takes none. His honest portrayal of both the characters stand out. There's one scene in the movie where Gaurav breaks into Aryan's home and destroys his space and goes on to deliver almost a five minute long scene, SRK kills it with his manic acting and dialogue delivery.

Now we have loved King Of Romance for opening his arms wide, flaunting his dimpled smile, hypnotising us with soft gaze and then mouthing some intense love lines. That still remains, but we like the baddie in SRK more today. After essaying some hatke roles early on his career and changing the norms for Bollywood heroes in his times, Shah Rukh returns to playing an anti hero. You hate SRK in Anjaam, Darr and Baazigar, but you cannot disagree that it was these roles that set him apart from all his contemporaries. That SRK dared to do roles that most mainstream heroes would not do just so that their HERO status is not compromised. If Amitabh Bachchan made angry young man cool, then Shah Rukh's these roles made anti heroes cooler. And with Gaurav SRK jut bring back all those good ol' days where he dared to be different. Glad that Maneesh Sharma and Yash Raj Films made this film, but happier that Shah Rukh Khan decided to take it and give it his honest best.
