FAN – Movie Review

3 Stars (3 / 5)

A very hard worked script and brilliant, outstanding acting from Shahrukh Khan as Aryan Khanna and Gaurav Chandna. The movie is all about a next door guy who resembles like superstar Aryan Khanna and his obsession towards the star took him to other heights. Aryan Khanna the superstar is inspired from the real life story of Shahrukh Khan and played by Shahrukh as situations matched with his current life.


Brad Pitt’s makeup man Greg Cannom, the multi Oscar nominated makeup man did the fantastic transformation of Shahrukh to Gaurav Chandna. Along with that a little VFX effects on nose to look thin and different from Shahrukh. Movie is all about the obsession towards the star, to so extreme that the fan starts living in a fantasy world of superstar and when he win a trophy in his local society dance program oriented by his star’s performances he decided to visit Mumbai on Aryan Khanna’s birthday to present him the same trophy.

Due to heavy crowd and security he was not able to meet him and disappointed Gaurav took a next level step to meet Aryan, which made the star unhappy and evil came out in the movie after this point. I personally believe there was too much negativity in the movie till the end and that was the lacking point which made the movie little low even after brilliant performances by all the cast. The happy go Gaurav disappeared very fast before the interval and the evil side irritated somewhat throughout the show.

Well it is a onetime watch to see brilliant acting from Shahrukh Khan.
