Fan Rviews : – It’s Shah Rukh Khan vs Shah Rukh Khan !
Shah Rukh Khan has stepped out of his comfort zone with Maneesh Sharma-directed Fan. A far cry from his romantic image, Fan takes us back to the days of Anjaam and Darr when SRK played obsessive lover/stalker with aplomb. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge changed all of that.
Directed by Maneesh Sharma, the Fan review stars SRK in a double role. He portrays himself in one role of the celebrity while in another role; he plays a #fan of himself. With its release overseas, it has garnered positive reviews in high quantity from the critics as well as the audience response. Fan” has been produced with a whopping budget of Rs 85 crore by Aditya Chopra under the banner Yash Raj Films and it has got brilliant production values. Vishal-Shekhar’s songs, Andrea Guerra’s background score and Manu Anand’s cinematography are the biggest attractions on the technical front.
So the much awaited film of the year is finally here. Shah Rukh Khan’s Fan which has him playing a double role, has finally hit the screens and it’s insanely trending on Twitter right now. People cannot stop raving about this Maneesh Sharma directorial. Mind-blowing, Fantastic, Surreal are the only reactions that we are getting to read on the internet right now. It’s like I am already getting an adrenaline rush to watch the film right away. However, while our film critic will be getting you the exclusive review shortly. Here’s what Bollywood celebs have to say in reaction to this ‘Film Of The Year.” Yes! Celebs like Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra caught a special screening of the film last night and seem to be completely bowled over by SRK’s double action.
Writer Habib Faisal seems to tap into the fan’s inner-most adulation for the star. There is more angst than sweetness in the relationship. In scene after scene, even when the angry fan gets down to ‘create a scene’, Faisal conceptualizes the turbulent conflict between the idolized and the idoliser, with a keen eye on keeping the drama on a tight leash.
For a large part of the narrative the energy and mood are bridled and broken down to an acceptable and credible level. The director films the duel of deception in bright colours that flatter to deceive. The bonhomie wears thin soon enough. When it does, the narrative is ready to shift gears with brisk adeptness.
A lot of the credit for bringing the two protagonists’ irreconcilable lives into a karmic clasp goes to editor Namrata Rao. She breathes an urgency into the proceedings without knocking the drama senseless . Towards the end, the plot begins to fall apart.
Kamaal R Khan (KRK) tweeted: “Maneesh Sharma Sahab, Ek Kahawat Hai, Ki Nakal Karne Ke Liye Bhi, Akal Ki Zaroorat Hoti Hai n it’s proved with your ch*tiyapa in #FAN. The whole world can learn from director Maneesh Sharma, how to totally destroy a film in the 2nd half with great nonsense.
