CAST & CREW
MORE CAST & CREW
Well, the much-anticipated Fan of Shah Rukh has hit the screens amidst great expectations. Let’s see how the movie, which is produced by Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films, has turned out to be.
The script is one that has not been touched before in Indian cinema; Shah Rukh plays the role of a Superstar, Aryan, who has ardent followers including Gaurav. Gaurav is obsessed with Aryan and one day goes to meet his preferred actor. There happens the twist; how the obsession of the hardcore fan turns out to be? Watch it to know how the movie progresses.
We have not seen Shah Rukh testing waters in such an avatar for quite some time. Shah Rukh Khan is just outstanding in his tailor-made role of a self-made matinee idol. He plays the character that is close to his life and nails it with his awesome performance. He mesmerizes us as Aryan, the superstar. His earnest performance is visible in every scene.. But as the die-hard fan Gaurav, though he does well, it seems as though he is overacting. But this can be forgiven given the point that the character needs such over-the-top performance. Overall, he has maintained an intelligent balance between the two characters. Shriya Pilgaonkar and Waluscha De Souza have brief roles in the movie. Yogendra Tiku, as Shah Rukh’s father, has done a commendable job. The rest of the cast does what is required of them.
Director Maneesh Sharma deserves credit for working on a script that is not confusing. He has also extracted the best from Shah Rukh. Some of the scenes are executed in such a way that the audiences can connect with them. The interesting thing is that the movie is devoid of songs. However the promotional song is good, and it has already become a rage.
What’s not there?
The second half dips down as compared to the first half.
Fan is a perfect treat for Shah Rukh’s fans. Also, the director Maneesh Sharma has done a great job in dealing with an unusual script.
