FAN Movie Review: 

~Contains Spoilers~

Overwhelmed, conflicted, emotional and a dream-like trance; these are some of the major feelings Fan leaves you with in its bitter-sweet saga, so much so that you might even want a second viewing to let things sink in, nitpick at the finer details and come in terms with the ending (especially for SRK's fans) . Whereas, the first half is sweet and entertaining at the most part; Gaurav's antics make you smile and even raise your eyebrow at some occasions. However, the film picks up significantly in the second-half where most of the thrills are packed. Gaurav and Aryan work with this strange tandem of their own action-reaction games and while that occurs, the film just adds on your confusion on who to side with. That conflicted feeling, most likely, won't be resolved because of the impactful climax/ending.

There are flaws in the screenplay definitely, but everything is overpowered by the SRK, the actor. The film could have reduced its length to 2 hours at most to tighten the screenplay. Or, with the current run time, they could have added bits to explore the thought processes of both Aryan and Gaurav for the things they did, maybe that could've helped gain a deeper understanding of the characters, specifically for those who were left very confused by the movie/didn't understand it [Story time: I remember a friend I talked to complained she hated the movie, citing that there was "no story" ...all Gaurav wanted was a selfie with Aryan and the whole movie is based on that...no matter how ridiculous that sounded to me before even watching the movie (since I had gathered from the reviews the movie was much more than that), there is a possibility a lot of people who like a certain kind of genre might have trouble understanding the purpose of the movie] . I liked Manish's direction, some of the shots were very artistic, especially in some scenes where the camera pans above and gives a picture in a frame like view. The supporting cast had their good moments, Gaurav's mom towards the scenes building up to the climax, the one playing Aryan's wife shined when she figures out it was Gaurav and not Aryan in the house as she hugs him (I almost thought she got fooled till the time she frantically searched for the gun). Sayani and Shreya were both consistent in their performances.

Many are saying that SRK the actor is back with this movie, but for me, he was never gone. Shah as an actor has always been there. Yes, in some OTT movies, he took liberties and hammed as well. But, that's his way of playing those characters. When he is given character driven roles, he excels in his craft the most...the effect is like butter smoothly spreading on bread. We have witnessed his superb performances recently too, with him as the brooding Major Samar Anand or, the subtle and gentle Surinder Sahni of RabNe...he left a mark of memory with both. I loved both Gaurav and Aryan, but maybe Gaurav a little more. His eyes are haunting whether they are glistening with tears, filled with menace and hatred, or just smiling as he looks up to his star Aryan while falling off. They are never empty, they carry an emotion each time. Aryan and Gaurav are poles apart in their nature, yet so similar whether its the physical appearance or their actions. I just want to applaud for SRK for playing both of these extremes so beautifully.

I don't like rating such movies, because then you have to be very critical and analyze each aspect, keeping aside the kind of experience the movie leaves you with individually. But if I have to, then the overall rating (keeping it honest) would be: 4/5


Great Review! Clap
Even I couldnt sleep till 4 am after watching Fan. Its so disturbing, thought provoking and SRK's performance as AK and Gaurav, as well as the film's climax and epilogue just hits you in the guts!
You cant stop thinking abt them. 
I couldnt even gather my thoughts to write a detailed review. Also because 2-3 members have posted such excellent reviews, I didnt have anything more to add to it.
I agree, many people who have more simplistic expectations couldnt understand the multi layered strands in the movie. The star vs fan conflict was too complicated for people who only understand good vs evil and not the gray areas in between.

Loved what you said abt Gaurav's eyes. 
 He expressed everything with those big, wide eyes...love and adoration for his idol, the delightful disbelief when he finally sees his idol, the bleak look in his eyes when hes in jail, writhing with the pain of betrayal; the fanatical determination in his eyes when he makes up his mind to teach Aryan a lesson he wont forget; the mischievous, cunning look when hes carrying out his nefarious plans! Clap
On the opposite end were Aryan's eyes, world weary, cynical, cold, hard, then alarmed, shocked at his stardom slipping away! Loved that "sanki" dialogue. LOL
SRK, you were just magnificent in Fan! Star

I was planning to make this my speech after I watch Fan, but obviously, coudn't fit anything else in the review above, LOL.

Kaash mai tumhe bata sakta mai tumhe kitna chahti hun, I love you. I love you very very much, Shah. 
Main ankhein band karti hu to tumhe dekhti hu, ankhein kholti hun to tumhe dekhna nahi chahti.
Isse pyar kaho, pagalpan ya mere dil ki dhadkan...pyar to bhot log karte hain lekin mere jaisa pyar koi nahi karsakta, kyun ke kisi ke paas tum jo nahi ho! 

Heart

Thanks, Pallavi! You seem like an amazing writer yourself! Love your detailed description in bold! 

On the way back, my mind was almost blank. I was in a daze, didn't know what to think. I knew that Aryan was more right than Gaurav, I don't dismiss his actions. But, maybe if he only did them a little differently, would Gaurav do what he did to himself at the end? Ouch
That smile when he is falling off and the way it remains on his face and his eyes...it kept flashing in my memory. Why, Gaurav, why!! :(
