FAN'Tastic' Idea! But Okay Okay Movie!!

A creative idea and a combo of vfx has given us this movie - FAN starring Shahrukh Khan & Shahrukh Khan. And here's the short & sweet review of the movie-:

Its a story of a crazy fan of the superstar Aryan Khanna(Shahrukh Khan), and this fan also belongs to Delhi like Aryan. The fan name is Gaurav Chandna(Shahrukh Khan), and he is just a teen, but he is so obsessed with him that he even challenges him when the star doesn't responds to his requests, and this is what the crux of the movie.

This movie is directed by acclaimed director of Band Baaja Baarat - Maneesh Sharma, and its his idea to make this movie, and its a creative idea I must say, the idea of a crazy fan who can go to any limits just to meet his star, but not only this, he also looks like his star, and since the star is a aged one, and he's a teen, it was very difficult to either find such a look-alike actor, or to create one, but they pulled it really well, by the use of vfx. In today's world anything's possible, If Rajni-Can, then other can too. The fan character Gaurav Chandna was superbly acted by Shahrukh, well he has pulled off many such characters earlier in his other movies, if you remember Suri, or Mr.Khan or the anti character of Darr & Baazigar movies. So, he is truly capable of pulling of a teen character as well. He is just too awesome in the teen character. But the movie has its own flaws - there are some scenes or situations which seems impossible, I mean un-digestible. Plus the movie is lengthy, had it been cut short, it could have better impact.

There are no heroine or songs in the movie, and yes I missed the title track so badly in the movie. It could have been included. Plus it seems just a chase-kind of movie instead of having more impactful one. the starting of the movie is awesome and also the climax, even the chase scenes, esp the delite hotel one, the action was nicely played, but the movie just lost in between. And in some scenes of the fan character, sometime he looks more like Shahrukh and not like his look-alike. Yes it had a Darr like feel, but still Darr was much better. That spark is missing here. I would say still that please go ahead and watch this movie to checkout something different and a brilliant idea, but go with lesser expectations. I rate 2.5/5. And just please tell me who the hell given the background score for chasing scenes, it was horrible, the fan theme was good, but that music.
