Fan - Movie Review

April 15, 2016

Verdict - "A misused opportunity."

When love turns into rage and when your greatest admirer becomes your ultimate enemy and tries to annihilate the name and fame you've acquired through hard work and determination, will you wipe out his existence or how would you react if you're a global superstar who is the center of a target for a psychopathic fan.

Gaurav Chandna (Shah Rukh Khan), a mid 20-year-old from Delhi is a worshipper and a devotee of his idol Aryan Khanna who is an eminent Bollywood superstar. After winning his first award for acting in a local talent competition, Gaurav decides to travel to Mumbai to visit Aryan and present his recently won souvenir as a gesture to thank his hero on his birthday. But things change rapidly when Gaurav traps himself into a deadly situation that not only annoys Aryan but also turns out to be a crime. What did he do? A murder? Well!

Discarding the two main pleasurable aspects of a film music and comedy, the story becomes the frontrunner and the presentation should be remarkable and accurate at the same time. When the main theatrical trailer released online it seemed that we're up for something exhilarating and intriguing and moreover it felt like a sure shot success in the action-drama category.

But, here's my concern, the objective of the entire film, the reason Gaurav was infuriated towards Aryan was a bit ridiculous. It felt a lot convenient and didn't justify the action that took place in the second half. I understand the emotion behind it, but the screenwriters could've considered a better idea to exploit the riveting premise. 

And furthermore, they're a little too many plot holes in the second half of the film where the scenes defaulted without logic, authenticity and emotion. Sure, watching SRK chase SRK was sure-shot entertaining but if you take a moment to think about the whole thing it sure will feel a bit asinine. 

Also, here's another example of why this movie felt transparent for me, the climax scene when the two characters talk to each other, that scene was supposed split your heart with affection and sentiment, but instead we get a dry impassive drama that didn't affect me emotionally. 

But, on the positive side, we finally get to see the Shah Rukh Khan we've been missing for almost three years now. His performances in the last few movies felt more synthetic and artificial for me. But in Fan, he's back with his charm and the alluring screen presence that he brings to the film. His body language, facial expressions, and dynamic that he brought to these two characters felt natural and didn't seem that he was acting in front of the camera. This performance will be remembered  and in the end, it's always delightful to watch SRK giving his best in every scene.

Nevertheless, this film had everything properly established, a great actor, a fascinating premise, and a talented director. But, the writers had misused the opportunity to perpetuate the storyline with a gripping screenplay and scenes that were emotional and believable. SRK was at his best during the entire film but it's just not enough for me to recommend you guys to go watch this film if you're not a fan of the superstar. Believe me, as a big fan of SRK I wanted to give this movie a good grade, but maybe I just have to wait till Raees releases.

My Rating - 2.75/5
Grade - C + (Decent Flick!)

Fan already released?

I wanted to watch this movie when I saw its trailer before Bajirao screening. Why is there such little buzz? The review looks good. Will go this weekend. Also need to watch The Jungle Book.
