Baffles me as to why the Indian audience didn't accept Fan.

The loopholes in the script weren't that huge to pull the movie down, so I call BS on that. Movies with worse potholes have been accepted so the cinematic liberties in Fan couldn't have been a huge deterrent. 

This year, especially, when the audience has been accepting content-driven like Ki & Ka  and critically-acclaimed movies like Neerja and Kapoor & Sons - why did Fan not work? The critics gave it a thumbs up, it enjoys good ratings on Imdb and RT.


I can only narrow it down to one thing - India is distancing itself from SRK for God knows what reason or can't accept SRK in a different avatar yet. It's a huge shame considering the man literally put Hindi Cinema on the global front and when the other superstars were dormant or flopping, he single-handedly delivered successes after successes. 


Anyway, I hope that SRK doesn't take this to heart. He's won his die hard fans and harshest critics back with a career-best performance - and this risk of his won't go in vain. My admiration for him, as an actor, has tripled after Fan. Hope he keeps on challenging himself, his craft and pushing his boundaries as an artist - and forgets the box office race and obsession with numbers. Years down the lane, no one will remember whether a Happy New Year did 200 crores or not. People won't even remember it. Whereas SRK's performance in and as Fan will still be used as a benchmark. 



I agree with each and every word.
I hope he doesn't take it to heart though...that's all that really matters 
It sucks man i really feel for him, let's hope this doesn't affect him much.

For them the measure of success is BO collections because that's the only kind of achievement their fave will have. Acting achievements are an impossible dream for their favourite star. 

It's very convenient how so many became fans of the current fave after his movies started becoming hits. They are the fair-weather fans. Once their favourite's movies start doing badly, they will find another favourite. 
What to get upset over what such fair-weather fans have to say??

but i can't listen bad for Srk a li guaruv in me tooLOL

Clap Completely True, each and every word! Clap

@Bold: Exactly! 90% Hindi movies have gaping potholes, yet nobody points them out! Even if someone does, its waved away as inconsequential. Its ridiculous to single out Fan for its cinematic liberties as they are relatively few and most of them are explained in the movie, so maybe the complaining viewers didnt pay attention. In a taut thriller like this, one needs to watch carefully so as not to miss anything crucial.
 Basically people just want to bash the movie as its SRK! Otherwise they swallow garbage served by their favorite star but point out loopholes when its SRK's turn.

@ Red: That is So True! Clap SRK has been the most successful actor/ star since Rajesh Khanna, he gave the most hits and superhits to date, his success rate is the highest of all current superstars and he indeed put Hindi cinema on the global map. Other actors basically followed his lead.
Yet now he is being dismissed all the time!
When he does a commercial film like Dilwale he is bashed for not doing content driven films, when he does something unique like Fan, hes bashed for not getting BO numbers...even that is a blatant lie as Fan is still the best opener of the year and it still has time to make money. 

SRK has mostly non commercial movies lined up now...we will see if those cribbing abt his film choices appreciate his move towards content driven movies or fixate on BO success. That will reveal the real critics from the Hypocrites.

great post!
some very good points.
I think the problem is Shah has lost good 3 to 4 years doing crap movies. same thing I witnessed with begum. and now one will question: is it too little too late? I was screaming daily at begums choices, same I did for shah.
begum rejected some very big movies, and shah rejected the biggest hirani's 3 idiots. imagine where they would be sitting if they had done those movies.


times are changing, so are ppls choices. and time does not wait for anyone. and time is very crucial for a star (not an actor tho).

but that said, I am glad, finally shah has taken a step forward. and yes, no doubt we can question, how come movie crashed so soon. after all shah is a superstar right. but then I also ask myself, I loved Ranveer's Lootera so much, and not liked BM that much, how come one crashes so fast, and the other becomes a superhit.

before some will say now we comparing ranveer with shah, so lets say how come shah's one of the best swades was a no show at boxoffice as well. and that time he was ruling.

I don't have answers,
LOL , seriously I don't.
but one thing i want to say, i am not going to say BS that why it flopped, or BS why ppl are not watching it, or its a great movie everyone should watch it. everyone has different taste. hell i like masala film today, and tomorrow i might like an off beat film.
end of the day...some movies will be loved and some not. like i said, times are changing. and as for losing star power, everyone superstar will lose their star power one day. rajesh khanna and Amitabh b also lost their power once. LOL
