A little more restraint in maintaining the tonal consistency would have resulted in a much darker and satisfying cautionary tale about the perils of fame and blind love.
[Director Sharma] pads out the songless film with well-executed but overlong action pieces that become even more frustrating when you consider the ways time could have been better spent exploring Aryan's fascinating backstory.
Fan is a fascinating but flawed study of celebrity and the reverential relationship we have with our stars. The film is a hall of mirrors with Shah Rukh playing a thinly disguised version of himself as Aryan Khanna the superstar.
This is a mediocre film saved by the presence of its overpowered, overexposed, and overconfident star.
[The] story could have benefitted from being a bit more restrained.
An insightful rumination on the codependency between idols and their devotees, disguised as a psychological thriller.
This is Shah Rukh's official entry into the modern evolutionary phase of Indian cinema, an attempt to break away from his mainstream romantic hero image.
Sharma and Faisal borrow ideas from the Hollywood movie Fan and Khan's back catalogue to fashion an absorbing thriller about a twisted lookalike that perhaps unintentionally doubles up as a reflection on the actor's career graph.
With Fan, SRK proves why he is considered one of the finest actors in business.
Just for these rare moments inspired by Shah Rukh Khan's real life, you should go and watch Fan.
SRK couldn't have found a better vehicle than Fan, both as an actor and as a celebration of the highs and the lows of his own stardom.
Straight away, no-one does freaky with more flair than Shah Rukh Khan.
