Ratings:3/5 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
As I left the cinema having watched the film, I found myself conflicted about my feelings. There is so much to admire here, but it’s evident the filmmakers think they’ve made a smarter film than they actually have. Still, Fan works for the most part. And anyone who – like me – had grown tired and disappointed with Shah Rukh’s unwillingness to step out of his comfort zone will have reason to be a fan again. I’m going with 3 out of 5.

On the whole, FAN has a brilliant first half, but loses track in the second hour, only to pick up again towards the pre-climax. The writing should've been tighter, while the absence of music [it's a songless film!] may also prove a stumbling block, but what works, and works big time, is the terrific act by SRK as the fan. And that's enough reason for you to watch this thriller!

On the whole, Fan is a good entertainer, not an outstanding one. Its first half is enjoyable but the post-interval portion is less entertaining and the climax is a big letdown. It will, of course, make profits but a long run at the cinemas is ruled out. Business in multiplexes and cities will be better than in the single-screen cinemas and small centres. Classes will like the film more than the masses.

The action's glorious but stretches while the naivete of Gaurav's parents (Deepika and Yogendra), unaware of their only child's feelings, seems slightly unbelievable. Yet, ending with a Baazigar-esque twist, Fan makes you feel Darr all over again. Watch it - you'll know why you're SRK's Fan.

Despite its squandered possibilities, Fan is always engaging. What keeps this Fan going is SRK's star power. The actor treads a delicate space in playing his own biggest supporter but also of the community he represents. He’s careful in his zeal, ensuring real-time fans don’t feel as though he’s mocking their affection just as he’s responsible in his response to such swaying attention.

The script (written by Sharma) and screenplay (by Habib Faisal) do show streaks of intelligence and originality once in awhile. But the script also throws up quite a few inconsistencies and impossible-to-believe sequences. If Gaurav can so easily fool the world, what is Aryan's clout we are talking about? If Gaurav can easily impersonate Aryan, why does he go unrecognised otherwise? But then all's soon forgiven when you are kept enthralled by the thrilling chase sequences and that unexpected climax.

I am happy to report that ‘Fan’ is a triumph. Shah Rukh Khan is played to all his strengths, and he plays it just right, gliding in and out of the star and the fan, creating distinct identities and outlines in one scene, and blurring the lines just so in the next. It is a wonderful, grasping, knowing performance, the actor and the star all rolled in one, all at our service, even as they service Shah Rukh Khan’s stratospheric stardom.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:Saibal Chatterjee Site:NDTV
The Fan, seems only superficial and incidental.The Hollywood psychological thriller was set in the world of baseball and the fan, played by Robert De Niro, wasn't a lookalike. Fan works for the most part because it has the fabulous SRK act as a 'young' star-struck boy. His energetic performance is worth the price of the ticket - if not more.It is fascinating to watch the actor making the transition from a gawky movie-crazy youngster to a swaggering Bollywood star mimic on stage to a psychologically unhinged stalker who pulls out the stops.Fan is proof that even if SRK isn't 25 years old, he certainly has the kind of enthusiasm that might put many 25-year-old actors to shame.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:Sarita Tanwar Site:DNA
Fan succumbs badly to the second-half syndrome and that is its undoing. It’s almost like the first and the second half are two different films.Everything in the second half is unbelievable – a middle-class Delhi boy travelling to foreign countries and getting the better of a reigning Bollywood superstar should have at least been handled better. Fan is a not a great film, it is a brave film. Watch it still for Shah Rukh Khan’s outstanding portrayal (an extra star only for him).

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Surabhi Redkar Site:Koimoi
The outrageously flawed script. This logic-defying drama is cringeworthy in the second half. Watch if you are a true SRK fan because after a long time he performs on-screen as an actor. If you were looking for a thriller then this will disappoint.Shah Rukh Khan performs brilliantly in a film that is flawed conceptually

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Lokesh Dharmani  Site:Masala
The film that looked promising started to give a few ‘that’s-a-bit-much-bro’ moments that soon turned into ‘haha-kuch-bhi’ moments and by the climax, logic had stabbed itself in the eye with a blunt knife, leaving you miserable with the improbability of the situation.There is a clash between the star and his fan. As a viewer, I would like to be empathetic towards one, judge the other, take sides and get emotionally engaged. I couldn’t quite decide. Fan is implausible, unreasonable and unconvincing.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:Manjusha Radhakrishnan  Site:Gulf News
Having said that, Fan is definitely watchable. It’s engaging to watch a powerful actor and his seemingly powerless admirer indulge in a twisted battle of wills. As a viewer, you are often gritting your teeth at Gaurav’s self-destructive stupidity and his motives to wreak revenge seems petty Watch this if you are a die-hard fan of Khan, but don’t expect an unpredictable thriller. The key here is to manage your expectations and you will walk home smiling at having seen an engaging drama about a stupid fan and a faultless superstar.

  1. Fan is One Time Watch for SRK Fans Only ,bcoz the plot is that SRK fighting with himslef ,chasing himself doing everything with himself is an absolute Stupid Idea looks like He is acting in front of Mirror,SRK is always Excellent as usual but the plot of the story is very weak & Maneesh Sharma(Director) would be blamed for that

  22. फ़ैन:
    अभिनय हावी, फिल्म हवा!! [3/5]

    कुछ भी तो नया नहीं है. बस शाहरुख़ खान साब वापस लौट आये हैं. ‘चेन्नई एक्सप्रेस’ और ‘हैप्पी न्यू ईयर’ वाले उबाऊ शाहरुख़ नहीं, ‘बाज़ीगर’ और ‘डर’ वाले प्रयोगधर्मी शाहरुख़! एक लंबे अरसे से जहां उनकी सारी मेहनत-मशक्कत अपने स्टारडम की चकाचौंध से अपनी और कुछ अपने ही लोगों की औसत दर्जे की फिल्मों को बॉक्स-ऑफिस पर सफल साबित करने में जाया जा रही थी, इस बार काफी हद तक अपने दोनों किरदारों को परदे पर जिंदा रखने और जिंदा दिखाने की कोशिशों में ज्यादा कामयाब होती नज़र आती है. मनीष शर्मा की ‘फ़ैन’ शाहरुख़ के उस बेजोड़ ललक, लगन और अभिनय के प्रति लगाव को हवा देती है, बॉलीवुड की बादशाहत हासिल करने में जिसने एक बड़ी भूमिका निभाई है. शाहरुख़ बेझिझक इस मौके का पूरा फायदा उठाते हैं. पर अफ़सोस, एक फिल्म के तौर पर ‘फ़ैन’ अपनी छाप छोड़ने में उतनी शिद्दत नहीं दिखा पाती.

    दिल्ली की तंग गलियों में एक छोटे से मोहल्ले का हीरो है, गौरव! फिल्मस्टार आर्यन खन्ना का हमशकल और फ़ैन. लोग उसे ‘जूनियर आर्यन खन्ना’ बुलाते हैं और वो आर्यन खन्ना को ‘सीनियर’! मासूमियत का आलम ये है कि उसे लगता है मुंबई पहुँचने पर आर्यन उसे पलकों पर बिठा लेगा, पर अपना फिल्मस्टार तो उसे अपनी जिंदगी के 5 मिनट देने से भी मुंह मोड़ लेता है. एक-दो बेवजह के रोमांचक एक्शन दृश्यों को छोड़ दें तो यहाँ तक की फिल्म आपको पूरी तरह अपने गिरफ्त में जकड़े रखती है, पर इसके तुरंत बाद जब वाहियात और उल-जलूल की नाटकीयता का दौर शुरू होता है तो आपके पास भी एक वक़्त बाद फिल्म के ख़तम होने का इंतज़ार करने के अलावा बहुत कुछ करने को नहीं रह जाता.

    ‘फ़ैन’ को आप बड़ी आसानी से ‘प्री-इंटरवल’ और ‘पोस्ट-इंटरवल’ में बांट कर देख सकते हैं. दोनों एक-दूसरे से उतने ही अलग-थलग दिखाई देते हैं जितना आर्यन और उसका डुप्लीकेट गौरव. फिल्म के पहले हिस्से में हबीब फैसल साब की राइटिंग आपको दिल्ली के मिडिल-क्लास तबके के आस-पास ही भटकने की इजाज़त देती है. और इसीलिए इस हिस्से से आपका जुड़ाव जबरदस्ती का नहीं लगता. गौरव साइबर कैफे चलाता है, ठीक उसी तरह के सेटअप में जैसे ‘दम लगाके हईशा’ में आयुष्मान कैसेट की दूकान. हैरत तब होती है जब फिल्मस्टार को उसकी जगह दिखाने और उसके अहम को सबक सिखाने की पूरी भाग-दौड़ में दिल्ली का मिडिल-क्लास नौजवान विदेशों में एक मंजे हुए कॉन-आर्टिस्ट की तरह अपनी सनक भरी हरकतें अंजाम देने लगता है. आपका लगाव अब जमीनी किरदारों से हटकर भारी-भरकम एक्शन दृश्यों की सफाई पर टिक गया है. जबरदस्त शुरुआत के बाद, ‘फ़ैन’ अब अंततः एक औसत फिल्म बने रहने की ओर तेज़ी से लुढ़कने लगी है.

    फिल्म के कमज़ोर पक्षों में शामिल हैं, फिल्म की लम्बाई, बेवजह का ड्रामा, ठूंसा हुआ एक्शन और लचर स्क्रीनप्ले, खास तौर पर इंटरवल के बाद! इसके बावजूद, ‘फ़ैन’ देखने का अगर आप कोई भी बहाना ढूंढ रहे हों तो वो शाहरुख़ का अभिनय ही हो सकता है. हालाँकि हॉलीवुड एक्सपर्ट्स का मेक-अप दोनों किरदारों को बखूबी एक-दूसरे से अलग नज़र आने में मदद करता है, पर शाहरुख़ जिस संजीदगी से दोनों किरदारों को परदे पर जीते हैं, आप हैरान हुए बिना नहीं रह पाते. सुपरस्टार आर्यन का जिद्दी अक्खडपन, गौरव का डराने वाला पागलपन और इनके बीच लगातार रंग बदलते शाहरुख़, इसी की कमी तो अब तक खल रही थी, शाहरुख़ के चाहने वालों को भी और उनके आलोचकों को भी! [3/5]

  26. In refashioning a hit in live action, using the latest computer effects and a whole ensemble of Bollywood A-listers SRK creates an entirely immersive world and a visually stunning film that brings something new .... which frankly seem to be raising expectations with each new scene.... this is a charming film with plenty laughs for both the young and the young at heart .... telling sharp and incising. And with steely performances ..... this one sure has the power to make it a striking, one-of-a-kind experience. The aerial aesthetics and a sanguine score adds substance ....... but it certainly scores as a totally engaging and emotionally satisfying engagement!
    I’m happy to report it hasn’t lost any of its incredible power. I'm going with a full five out of five for Fan. The film grows on you and just doesn’t let go.
