Finally, the most- awaited movie of Shahrukh Khan, ‘Fan’ released on 15 April 2016 worldwide. In this movie, there is a double dose of your favorite superstar, Shahrukh Khan, as he is playing double role in it. He has played a double role is many of his films earlier as well like in Duplicate, Karan Arjun, Don, etc. It is always fun watching him in a double role.

SRK is playing the roles of Gaurav (an ardent fan) and Aryan Khanna (a superstar) in the movie.

Gaurav is a 25-year-old boy

who is the fan of 50 years old superstar Aryan Khanna.

This movie is not a romantic movie, typically played by SRK. It has something different in it. In this, Gaurav is obsessed with superstar Aryan Khanna and later becomes his greatest enemy.

Cast and Crew

‘Fan’ is filmed under the production of Yash Raj Films and directed by talented director Maneesh Sharma. This combination in itself gives a great hope for its success.

Shahrukh Khan is in the lead role, and then there are also Waluscha de Sousa, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Yogendra Tiku and Sayani Gupta are in main roles.

Audience feedback

The first screening of the movie ‘Fan’ witnessed a great crowd. The audience was already very excited about the movie.

Movie goers and critics in general liked the first half of the movie over the second.

Critics have praised Shahrukh Khan a lot for his performance. He has performed convincingly for the both the roles.

But second half the movie was a just stretching of a story for no use.

If you are an SRK fan, then you will definitely like this movie because he has played his part very well. The movie has fun, full of emotions and thrill.

You will also get a chance to see some action between the Gaurav and Aryan Khanna at the end.

Critic Reviews

Some of the reviews from critics are:

According to Lokesh Dharmani, Fan movie is unconvincing and unreasonable.

For Gulf News, this movie is for the fans of Shahrukh Khan as in the movie there is nothing unpredictable. The key point of the movie is Shahrukh, so enjoy it if you are a fan of Shahrukh.

From Emirates24/7 Sneha says, the movie is highly inspired by a Hollywood flick of the same name. But the story is unnecessarily stretched by the filmmakers.

Final take on FAN

I have a similar opinion about the movie. It has quite a predictable storyline with nothing new in it. Though the most interesting thing is watching Shahrukh Khan playing two completely different roles which have nothing similar except their face. Gaurav is a young man who is highly obsessed with Superstar. The role of Gaurav is somewhat like the character Shahrukh played in movie Darr. But here, he is not obsessed with any girl. Gaurav just wants to meet his superstar and proud to look like him.

The SRK performances makes it worth watching in the theater, So go and enjoy this double-trouble movie of Shahrukh this weekend.

In case you have been living under a rock, and haven’t watched it yet, here is the FAN trailer.

In case you have watched FAN, and are still drooling about the movie, here is the making of the song – Jabra FAN Anthem.
