The movie is dark, depressing and unrelatable...you hardly find insane people like Gaurav in reality. But genuine and sane fans are all out there in plentiful number. I wish they focused on atleast some of the good part of fans and not made a mockery of them by stereotyping so badly, may be then the audience would have been pleased. 

To be honest, they did show the genuine love Gaurav had for Aryan in the beginning. However they can't make it all rainbow-like, other-wise there would be no story. Gaurav had to be the way he was otherwise we would not have a movie... and that too a thriller...

Then i think the movie should have been named something else...not FAN for sure. The tagline of the movie is "SRK IN AND AS FAN" - There is so much focus on the 'love' of a fan though this is not love. This is madness. From beginning Gaurav was shown insane. He had no consideration or emotional connect for other people like in the train scene. That was height of insanity and not love. Fans are not like that. They might be crazy for their idols but they dont have self-destructive attributes. Clearly FAN is a totally one-sided movie from the perspective of only a stars goodness.

Fan - The Genre Makes It Tough

Fan dropped on the second day at key centres which basically sealed its fate and the postmortems will happen but the genre of the film always meant an uphill struggle to meet expectations which were mainly there because of a big star like Shahrukh Khan. It could have succeeded but was never going to be a superstar level hit. The highest grossing thriller till date is Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty at 112 crore nett and that says it all.

 

The next bests are Ek Villain and Race 2 and the list of disappointments in the genre is huge not just over the last few years but since they started being made in Hindi. The last big hit in the genre was Agni Sakshi way back in 1996 and this was mainly driven by Mumbai circuit which had a tax free status.

 

The last one to do extraordinary business all over was actually a Shahrukh Khan film Darr in 1993. This is probably the most successful thriller genre film in India ever but the reason it went so far was that other elements that are needed in a Hindi film were blended so well in the film especially a love story and music. Also it was directed by the one of the greats of Hindi cinemas Yash Chopra and there no directors of that level today in the Hindi film industry. 

 

Basically the bigger the star, the bigger the risk with this genre. The more popular you are then the higher the expectations go which just can't be met with the genre especially the sort of number that is expected of a Shahrukh Khan or a Salman Khan starrer. Its difficult to meet expectations and if a few circuits reject the film then the gap between expectation and final result can look huge which is the case with Fan.

 

The downside of mega stardom is that you can't really go out of the drama, action and love story genre today as box office numbers are reported everywhere and outside these genres you need some outstanding film to put up a megastar number.

 

It is also interesting to note that the other superstar of the day Salman Khan has no film in the thriller genre in our database which goes back to 1994. Not only Salman Khan but even the legendary megastars of prior generations with great box office records are likely to have filmographies devoid of thrillers.

Honestly, the film was depressing and dark. And towards the end, I felt like I was watching Raone.

But SRK still has hopes for winning NA..umeed par duniya kaaym hai..Wink

PS. I wonder what would have happened to SRK if his films weren't released in Pakistan?Ermm

NA for fan LOL
