Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta also gave Fan three and half stars and has praised SRK for his performance. (Fan: Audience reaction to Shah Rukh Khan’s film, watch their reviews)
She writes: “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. But, and this is the thing, the film does not simper or slobber. It is not in thrall to its star, even when it recognizes his stardom. It goes at itself with with a raised devil’s eyebrow ( just like SRK’s) and a nod and a wink, and brings us in on the joke. And Shah Rukh Khan keeps pace with us, all the way.”
SRK’s last year’s release Dilwale had Rs. Rs. 148.72 cr. in India and his Happy New Year, which released n 2014 was a commercial success and earned Rs. Rs. 203 cr. in India. His other hit was Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express (2013). The film earned Rs. 227.13 cr. during its lifetime.
