I finally got around to watching Shah Rukh Khan‘s latest movie, Fan. I have always complained about how Shah Rukh does only one kind of movie so it was really refreshing to see him do a pure acting kind of role and he did deliver!
On the whole, I have to commend the director for keeping it real, not adding song/dance sequences and unnecessary drama. I thought it was well directed and edited except for some chase sequences getting a bit too long. Croatia looked very scenic!
As far as the story goes, I’m not sure if we could have had a better ending. At times, it was confusing to figure out who should you empathize with. The message was clear, but could it have been portrayed a bit differently, yes, for sure!
Nevertheless, a good movie and three cheers to Shah Rukh for trying out something different.
