Fan -- An Indian superstar becomes an unhealthy obsession for a Delhi-based fan.
Fan -- The story of Gaurav, a young man whose world revolves around the mega movie star Aryan Khanna, or God as he refers to him. From the by lanes of Delhi, young Gaurav embarks on a journey to the city of dreams, Mumbai, in order to wish his God on his birthday. After all, he is Aryan's biggest FAN and even has a striking resemblance to him -- how difficult could it be for the world biggest FAN to get an audience with the world's biggest Star. When things don't go according to plan, Gaurav's love and passion for his God turns in to a dangerous obsession that crosses the fine line.

One of the best Bollywood i have seen!!, 16 April 2016
Author: Paul Chow from Canada

To be honest i am not a bollywood fan by any means. I mean i cannot handle all those songs, and fighting scenes with the mushy gushy love things that never seem to happen in real life. Today was actually the first time that i went to watch a movie in a theatre for a bollywood movie. I will say that i did watch bollywood movies before (on DVD), but most of them were beyond my thinking. For example Prem Ratan Dhan Payo - which was the worst movie till date, oh i almost forgot Dilwale. So it was a great experience to see Bollywood establish itself this year by directing and producing movies that are different and that doesn't follow commercial success.

I did not know who Shah Rukh Khan was, i mean here in Canada the only people we know is our sports stars or Hollywood superstars. Never really cared about Bollywood, but this movie opened my eyes. Doing some research i figured out that Shah Rukh Khan is the biggest star in the world and i was hell shocked. I guess he really deserves that because his acting is superb.

A good actor is a person that brings out the emotions and he just did that. If his duplicate would cry, i would cry. If he was happy, i felt happy. I really want to applaud him on that.

The story too me was 8/10, other 2 was for his acting. The first half is very engaging and touching. A person does not want to leave to the bathroom because they didn't want to miss anything. Second half was OK, some unreal stuff happen but i can live with that because who knows, maybe this events could happen. It kind of is inspired from that baseball fan movie thing. I would know i love the San Fransisco Giants.

Its a great one time watch, everyone should go and just try something new. I am not too sure why people are giving this a 1 star because i know to me on a person bases this is the BEST bollywood movie i have ever seen
