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. 

From the very first poster, i felt like Fan would have a hard time surviving because it is about stalker culture, the dark side of fan culture. India as expecting a hommage to fans, the public was not ready for anything like this. & the reported issues with directing + script are not helping

These numbers makes me a little worried for him. He's loosing his grip over Indian audiences. Fan wasn't a perfect movie but still it was better than his recent. I think the connection is missing and I hope he would connect with Indian audiences through Raees. Still I'm glad SRK, the actor is back.

Thanks for agreeingEmbarrassed. One and only person to agree on thisHug FAN is a different concept,new to BW. SRK was the shinning starStarStarStar Yeap he definitely did a fabulous job in both roles.

It was a very different concept. So many of his movies have been and non earned huge at the Box office, BUT ALL are remembered today like Swades or say Dil se and Fan will be too. Marketing or no marketing the movie would still be for a few and not everyone.

Yes FAN has unconventional concept. The problem lies in public being unaware of its release. I myself did not know of its release and came to know because of IF. I told many people who wished to see FAN as they were not aware of its release. 

In past few years movies with different concept have done well because public was aware and wanted to see it. With FAN too people would have loved watching it, had they known about it. Whoever has watched it has praised it, so that proves its well made film. SRK has been showered with accolades for his performance. All this deserved a BO success too.

 Many youngsters were waiting for jabra song to come in end credits but it did not. They wanted to dance On it and shoot the video. This was disappointing. I blame YRF for this fiasco, they should have marketed and promoted it better. SRK and public deserved it.

Will the next decade of Bollywood belong to females? 
Once a superstar fades, it takes a decade for another superstar to emerge. (Amitabh Bacchan and Khans). In between, female leads become dominating players (like Madhuri, Sridevi were). 

Right now, there are only male "stars" in younger generation. No superstar who can be compared to Khans. It will take some more years for any one of them to get there. In between, who will be playing on the field?

Boi is little too lenient toward this film and indicine a little too harsh.  No site has declared it a flop like indicine has.
Perception and expectation wise it has failed but that doesn't mean it will be a losing proportion for producers. Similarly justifications and defensive approach by boi is also wrong.

It is the wom that has resulted in its failure otherwise it got the start that could hv warranted a good run if response was favourable.

With ZERO buzz and almost zero lack of awareness, if a movie can open to almost 20 cr,  that shows who is the baap of BO power. For people who do not underatand BO, 200 or 300 crore doesnt not tell you the BO power. That is decided by the content and public acceptance of the content. BO power solely depends on can you bring in the audience on day 1? Simple.
Now if a movie can do that without any publicity or buzz, that means the star is one of the greatest audience puller of all times. How can you even doubt this.

Honestly, I would not worry about him. Fan missed the mark with what the public was expecting from their promos, Raees should be safe because it is a true story & people can & will relate to it more. Iam making fun of some fans here (they deserve it), but truth be told, i Clap SrK for trying to introduce a new kind of Masala in Bwood. The genre has to evolve, he is still searching for the right formula, i think his next choices for the massy genre will be closer to it.

now some will defend and say it was a niche movie and not a feel good movie

my answer...Neerja

hope that shuts the blind defenders now..who are totally have a different tale to tell in salman's threads

learn to accept failure with dignity..shall we?

this failure is still better than dilwale's failure though..

so last year a kangana starrer earned more than srk starrer

this year a sonam starrer earned more than srk starrer


oh my..things are changing and how

who would have thought that!!

Kuch bhi! Who didnt take Fan's failure gracefully? As I can see most SRK fans are pretty graceful about it. Coming to Kangana and Sonam..compare flops to flops and hits to hits. SRK's flop has made 70cr so far, Sonam's last flop was DKD which made 15cr while Kangana last flop was Katti Batti which made 20cr. Hits I need not mention. 

And someone will bring screen counts here. I have a basic question-DKD had twice the screen count of Neerja yet it didnt do well. Why? Same star but bigger release size. The film should have done better than Neerja. It did even lower than Khoobsurat. Why?

aray Mrs. Khan..i clearly mentioned "blind defenders"..you aren't one of those..so chill
