Fan Movie Review: Fan is a thriller film directed by Maneesh Sharma. The film stars Shahrukh Khan, Waluscha de Sous in the lead roles. It has been produced by Yash Raj Films. Fan is releasing on 15 April 2016.
The names of Shahrukh Khan and YRF are enough to raise our expectations. But the trailer of the film has received immense love from the audience and they are hoping that this will bring back the old charm of SRK which he may have lost while doing masala films. Let's move on to Fan review to find out if it lives up to the expectations.
As most of you already knew that Fan tells the story of a fan and a movie star. Gaurav is a young boy from Delhi. His world revolves around his god Aryan Khanna, a big movie star. Gaurav's journey begins when he plans to wish Aryan on his birthday in Mumbai. But slowly things gets ugly between Gaurav and Aryan and Gaurav's love turns into a dangerous obsession. This leads to an edge of the seat thriller
The writer builds a good engaging tale with its nitty-gritty in place. The only problem here is that it fails at keeping up the gripping pace in the later half which was quite necessary. A patchy, unremarkable approach to a brilliant script at places, this film leaves you with a feeling of how much more it could have been. But director Maneesh Sharma’s edge of the seat treatment holds your attention most in most parts of the film.
The scenes are crisp to make the story tighter. Background score works wonders. The only problem is that in order to keep the film shorter, certain scenes end abruptly. In handling stellar material, Maneesh has fared as average at best. Andrea Guerra has managed a convincing, melancholic score.
Shahrukh Khan as Gaurav is intense, controlled & emotional in the right doses. But he overacts in some of the sequences. As Aryan he does a good job.
For an engaging battle of wits, watch this film. You will definitely enjoy it but don't have too many expectations.
