My experience in one word: OH MY GOD!
Shahurkh khan starter Fan, in which he was both in and as his fan, was just mind blowing. So by far you know that I’ve soft spot for thriller movies. Produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Maneesh Sharma, it encapsulates a nail-biting story of a fan named Gaurav (Shahrukh khan) who resembles Aaryan Khana (Shahrukh khan again), who is a top actor of Bollywood. Gaurav spends his life praising him like his God but unfortunately, when he meets his superstar in real life, he realizes that he is as human as any other. The twist comes in when Gaurav can’t let go of the fact that he is of no value to Aaryan Khana. He decides on taking revenge and rest you need to buy in cinema.
I know many will only watch to get a glimpse of Shahrukh khan’s real life. (Hint: You won’t be disappointed) BUT if you are expecting romantic musical movie then please don’t waste your tickets. This movie has no songs, not even the one which we see in trailers and yes no heroin. I like the way Bollywood is getting all rational like Hollywood movies, with no song in the middle of dessert with next scene in Switzerland but come on, we will miss it!
Cost of production: Rs 85 cr
Print and Advertising: Rs 20 cr
Total budget of the film: Rs 105 cr
But totally worth it!
This movie is still a big win because you actually start believing that there are two characters fighting against each other, not one. It’s the storytelling that matters in the end and that is flawlessly done in Fan. Hats off to the makeup team and strong acting capabilities of Shahrukh khan.
