In 1993, Shahrukh Khan had played the negative character of an obsessive lover in Darr and we still can't forget his terrific acting in the film, (especially that K..K..K..Kiran). However, since a few years, SRK was doing only romantic-comedy films, which only got average reviews from the critics! After a long hiatus, Shahrukh Khan is back with a 'hatke' film, i.e., Fan and let's see, what this movie has in store for all of us...
This Shahrukh Khan starrer is a double dosage of entertainment owing to his two different characters in the film. Shahrukh will play his own biggest fan and at the same time, he will also portray his real life character, a Superstar.
Below Are The 'On The Sets' Pictures Of Fan:
Director : Maneesh Sharma
Cast: Shahrukh Khan, Waluscha De Sousa
This film is all about a fan's fandom. Gaurav, who owns a small cyber cafe in Delhi, is a huge fan of Superstar Aryan Khanna, worships the Superstar and is all crazy about him (as he says, wo sirf star nahi hai, duniya hai meri.) Gaurav achieves something big in his life, which makes him very popular in his community.
To dedicate his achievement to his Superstar, Gaurav decides to meet Aryan Khanna on his birthday, so that he can wish him and also show what he has achieved because of him. Gaurav embarks on a journey and reaches Mumbai, while facing a few difficulties.
Everything is nice and exciting for the young obsessive Gaurav till he meets Aryan Khanna. He gets the biggest shock of his life when his favourite Superstar refuses to share time with him and refers Gaurav's actions to a crime. Well, what made Aryan say so, for that you have to watch the film.
Things take an ugly turn and all his love and admiration for Aryan turns to a dangerous obsession that crosses the line. How far Gaurav goes with his obsession and what mess he creates in Aryan Khanna's life is for you to find out.
Coming to Shahrukh Khan's performance, he has pulled off both the characters so effortlessly that at one point you will feel like standing up and clapping for the actor. SRK has worked really hard on Gaurav's character. Right from his body language, to his looks and typical 'Delhi' accent, SRK has given complete justice to the role.
From the actor's angle, Gaurav is perfect. But we feel the director should have done more research on the detailing of Gaurav's character.
SRK's co-star Waluscha De Sousa, who is debuting in Bollywood through this film shares very little space in the film, that we can't judge her acting skills.
Coming to the direction of the film, we will give credit to Maneesh Sharma only for the second half of the film. The sequence that appears a few minutes before the interval is so long that we wished that the particular over-exaggerated sequence got over soon. We appreciate Maneesh for the gripping climax as he has helmed it really well. Worth praising!
As it's a YRF film, our expectation from the editing team was rather high, which they couldn't fulfill. There were many scenes, wherein the direction was good, SRK's performance was outstanding, but because of the average editing, the scene didn't come out well on-screen.
The film has been shot in the stunning locales like Croatia, London, Mumbai and Delhi and the cinematographer of the film, Manu Anand has done a beautiful job. The team of Fan has spent a bomb on the VFX of the film, which actually looks amazing on-screen and works as the backbone of this thriller flick!
No matter, whether you are a Shahrukh Khan Fan or not, this film is surely a must watch. There are a few flaws but don't worry at all! Shahrukh Khan's 'double dhamaka' is totally a paisa-vasool and you can easily give it a shot, that too, along with your full family!
