Banner: Yash Raj Films

Producer: Aditya Chopra

Director: Maneesh Sharma

Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Waluscha de Sousa, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Deepika Amin, Yogendra Tiku, Sayani Gupta

Writer: Habib Faisal (screenplay and dialogue), Sharat Katariya (dialogue), Maneesh Sharma (story)

To start with, FAN is not your usual Hindi film. It doesn't have songs. It doesn't have the scenes you usually associate with leading man Shah Rukh Khan. It doesn't have SRK's antics or him falling in love with the leading lady. But while watching the movie, do you really care or miss any of this? Not one bit. Apart from the fact that the film is gripping from start to finish, the double role played by Khan is jaw-dropping, and even though we have seen him essay many types of characters, the two he plays in FAN leave you all but hypnotised.

If the charisma of the super star character played by Khan makes you falls in love with him once again, the other character he plays, Gaurav, takes him to a different level as an actor. If you're an SRK fan, you will love him even more, and if you aren't a fan, you will likely be converted after watching this movie. That's the kind of impact the film has.

The film starts with 25-year-old Gaurav Chanana (Shah Rukh Khan), a young lad from Inder Nagar, Delhi, who is madly awestruck by superstar Aryan Khanna (Shah Rukh Khan). Gaurav runs a cyber cafe but all he really wants to achieve in life is to meet Aryan Khanna, whom he refers to as senior' and himself as junior' since Gaurav looks a lot like Aryan.

Gaurav wins a local competition and some money, and he uses it to visit Mumbai to meet his idol and wish him on his birthday. But things go a little awry. Gaurav misbehaves with Aryan's on-screen rival Sid Kapoor, hoping to please the star, but it has the opposite effect. Gaurav's feelings for Aryan do an about turn and, now, all he wants is to do is make Aryan regret the way he treated him.

Gaurav sets out to tarnish Aryan's image and will do anything to have the latter apologise for his behavior. What follows is a clash between the star and his fan. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

There are very few films that can successfully turn the protagonist into the antagonist, to make the audience fall in love with the lead character, only to turn tables as the story progresses. That's where FAN scores. Maneesh Sharma's direction and writing complement each other to the fullest. His characters are well-defined and the script justifies the story to the fullest. The most endearing sequences in the film are those featuring Gaurav and how his antics come so naturally to him. Sharma plays well with both characters (Gaurav and Aryan). The basic story has a certain simplicity attached to it, making it a smooth, flowing delight on the big screen. Sweeping in its scale and originality of vision, the film not just pushes the envelope, it redefines the boundaries of popular cinema.

Many scenes are spectacularly scripted, like the one where Aryan Khanna meets Gaurav for the first time; the scene where Gaurav arrives outside Aryan's house on the latter's birthday; Gaurav's skit at the local competition; the execution of his plan at Madame Tussauds, his outburst at Aryan's house; and the climax, which is an exceptional end to this beautiful tale. The first half of the film has its moments and the second half keeps you glued to the screen. The chase sequences, which are beautifully captured, are another highlight of this film.

Dialogue by Sharat Katariya and Habib Faisal is crisp, natural and outright honest, contributing a great deal towards endearing FAN to the audience. The screenplay is well drafted and imbued with reason. The background score is subtle and suits the temperament of the narration. Cinematography by Manu Anand is top notch. Editing by Namrata Rao is to the point. With a runtime of 142 minutes, there is hardly a dull moment. The narration is pacey and engrossing from start to finish. The end is sufficiently justified and emotional sans melodrama.

Performance-wise, there is no other actor who can play the role of Gaurav with such conviction as Shah Rukh Khan does. As Aryan Khanna, he owns the screen. His look and walk (different for both the characters he plays), and dialogue delivery are major attractions of the film. Undoubtedly, this is another award-winning performance from SRK. Waluscha de Sousa plays her part exceptionally well. Shriya Pilgaonkar delivers a confident performance. Deepika Amin she stays true to her character throughout. Yogendra Tiku is notable. Sayani Gupta is splendid. The others play their respective parts well. The supporting cast is good.

Verdict: FAN is indeed a treat for movie-goers and will be a BIG winner at the ticket counter.

I loved Chak De India and he was great in it. And Chak De India was a beautifully scripted movie unlike Fan.
Fan is not Chak De.

Wow this is something!! Clap
He gave 3 stars to Action Jackson...

That was a sarcastic review.
but 3 star rating for sarcastic review?
not questioning his credibility...but sometimes I find him very spot on and sometimes it looks like he is just so lenient with bad films...prefer reviews from a bunch of reliable critics including him...yet to watch it...

Have u seen it?how is it?
