Most of you guys have definitely seen Shahrukh Khan’s Fan. The psychological thriller received positive reviews from critics but the film failed to perform at the box office. I am not much of SRK’s fan and did not watch Fan in the theatre. But recently I witnessed Fan and was quite impressed.
Well, then what went wrong with Fan? I personally enjoyed the film and was much better than some of SRK’s last films. But I did not like the ending at all and I missed Jabra Fan song. If this song was in the movie, there would have been dances in the theaters.
The first half of the film was superb. The second half was good too but in last 30 minutes, the film lost its plot. The chase sequences were pretty long and made the film slow paced. There could have been more twists and thrills. In the climax, Fan made no sense.
In the film, Gaurav is portrayed as a bad guy and Aryan is seen beating and showing his hatred towards Gaurav which did not go well with the fans. In one of the scenes, Gaurav shoots Aryan. We all know fans will be fans but they will definitely not hurt their superstar in a physical way. Here are few changes that should have been made.
Gaurav also has some kind of emotional connection with Aryan. Like in one of the scenes, Gaurav helps Aryan when the later is about to fall from the roof. After helping he ran away and their chase continues. Through this, we would know that Gaurav has a love-hate relationship with Aryan.
There should also have been a happy ending. Like Gaurav’s death made no sense at all and made the audience indifferent. Instead in the climax, Gaurav and Aryan sort out their differences when Gaurav broke out and confessed that his whole life revolves around Aryan and he has nothing to do instead. Aryan also realized his mistake and advised Gaurav to do hard work in his life to have a better career just like he did to become a superstar. And in the end, Aryan dances to Jabra Fan song in Gaurav wedding ceremony (for free of cost :-P)
With these few changes, Fan would have been much better and no one could stop it from emerging blockbuster.
