Movie Review : FAN

Movie Review : FAN 

FAN released on 15th April 2016 is an Indian thriller movie starring Shahrukh Khan in the lead role. He is playing a double role of a superstar Aryan Khanna and his doppelganger Gaurav Chandna who was his Fan. Others staring in the film are Waluscha de Souza (Gauri Khanna-Aryan's wife), Sayani Gupta (Aryan's PA), Shriya Pilgaonkar (Neha - Gaurav's love interest), etc. The film is directed by Band Baja Baraat fame Maneesh Sharma who said that making this film was his only dream. It is produced by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films.



Pre-Production and Marketing : News of film's release was in public domain from more than a year. Its release was delayed several times for VFX and special effects requirements. Promotion was handled mainly by SRK as he always did for his films and was visible everywhere before and after film release. From motion poster, to title designing to Fan Anthem to movie release , SRK's fan were involved on social media platforms which helped in creating buzz around the movie.

Music: You will be surprised to know that this SRK movie has no songs except the JABRA FAN song which was used for promotional purposes but is not featured in the film. Usually SRK movies' music set the stage for big release however this time it was done by a single song which was translated and sung in 11 different languages by famous singers of that language. You can say that a single song created as much publicity as the entire album.



Plot: Gaurav Chandna is a die hard Fan of superstar Aryan Khanna. He is known as Junior Aryan Khanna in his locality for his appearance and mannerism. He his mad about Aryan and can do anything to meet him. When he won trophy and prize money of Rs 20,000 at his colony's Dussehra function by performing an act based on Aryan Khanna's movies, he decided to show his trophy to Aryan after meeting him personally on his birthday in Mumbai. He reached Mumbai where he found himself standing among thousands of Aryan Khanna fan who wanted to meet him but have to satisfy with just his glimpse. Gaurav is not a ordinary fan so he did something which forced Aryan Khanna to meet him. This meeting turned Gaurav from a fan to enemy of Aryan Khanna. What he do after that incident? How Aryan deal with his obsessed fan? A thrilling story answers this questions and take you to a memorable climax. 

Hits: We all know Shahrukh Khan is a great actor but director exploits his star image more than his acting prowess. This film yet again highlights his acting potentials. He has done a marvelous job in making Gaurav believable to the audiences. Director Maneesh Sharma has proved his worth in thriller genre as well after successfully directing rom-coms. You don't miss the songs while watching this movie and not even the SRK you know till know. I also like the action chase sequences.

Miss: I think some emotional scenes between Gaurav and his family or with his love interest would make this film more sensitive. Aryan Khanna's character is not much highlighted which bereft the audience of his psyche. 

Verdict: This not just for SRK fans but for all those who has loved a star selflessly. Its a tribute to all Fans. Go and watch it now. 

Rating : I would give it 4/5.

  1. Sharukh is a good actor but his recent movie choices are nothing great to mention. Seems this one comes with no regular SRK stamp. Good then.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway.

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…

Gorakhpur Tragedy

Gorakhpur Tragedy
Amid increase crime report in UP where after swearing in of Yogi Adityanath as chief minister cases of murders, kidnapping, dacoities, rape, etc has increased many folds the fresh news came of the negligence in government hospital. At least 60 children have died over five days at the state-run Baba Raghav Das Medical College hospital in Gorakhpur.  The deaths are being blamed on infections and possible disruption of oxygen supply in the pediatric ward. 


The administration has rejected the claims of shortage of Oxygen as reason for deaths but the increase supply of Oxygen cylinders in the morning after the news broke out indicating otherwise. Isn’t it the negligence of the government hospital administration, health minister and Chief minister? Incidentally Gorakhpur was Yogi Adityanath’s Lok Sabha constituency. No compensation can fill the void of death of innocent children but there must be a time bound probe of the reasons behind the death and culprits must be puni…
