Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan has released on January 25, 2023. Directed by Siddharth Anand, the movie also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. SRK is back after 4 years with Pathan. Here is link for Pathan Movie to download for free from Telegram Channel.
Sometimes cinema is a celebration, a festival that welcomes a greater force in art to turn back right in face of every trend of hatred and thus gives us, SRKians, every reasons to celebrate and roar for his return in the transient affirmation that confirms he’s not finished..nope..not yet, our hero from 90s is still breathing even in the age of 57 and PATHAN is his devastating come back that brings literal fireworks in theatres from sides of his fans and admirers who never will let any of his movies fall apart by influences of some extremely negative Boycott Bollywood trends!
Now being more precise about the movie, it’s the same universe which once was started with Salman’s Tiger and later gets assembled with Hrithik’s Kabir (WAR). Well unfortunately enough none of this was particularly well planed but the thing about YRF’s spy universe is the star power in the lead which will be obviously going to make amends for many of their false steps when to be enjoyed the movies in big screen with theatre full of insane applauses bringing mass hysteria to an another level!
To be sure, PATHAAN is all about swag and rivalry..the combo of everything that you can think of from a spy movie, made in Bollywood, starring not a Tom Cruise but someone from INDIA who’s not any less than him!: be it machismo from a larger than life reflection of monstrosity, be it thrill ridden exquisite chivalry from nonstop actions of a superhero..wounded by stress from a long-run, be it patriotism, be it exoticism, be it frustrations to step into the duel for multiple times and be it cringy female actors in a honey trap..
every tropes and cringes in the genre are hence retrieved in order to bring a mess of a pure mass-action entertainer that everyone can enjoy if they don’t try to be critic by their own. Fasten your seat belts, you’re embarking into this journey of world tour in fastest cinematic aircraft of history: dancing in the beach of Spain, a Honeymoon mission in Russia, biggie explosions in an Afghan village, full speed car chase in Dubai streets wherein a first face off they’re fighting while hanging from the choppers, banging in the train in way to Siberia, chase with flying jets, bike chase over frozen lake of Russia
here with PATHAAN it seems like Sid doesn’t leave any of his cards unturned to make it BIG! Even an interesting plot twist reveals some sort of biological weapon that resembles Corona 3.0 with symptoms of smallpox and it’s about to be spread over civilization of India’s capital..threat is here, knocking at the doors. And king is returning from his 4 year’s exile.
SRK is always great but John, being an antihero, gives his best to be a dangerous criminal mastermind who sometimes at his best moments even resembles Joker from DC but I won’t take your expectations too high in that echelon because that only will leave you more dissapointed as things (flaws) turn to be revelaed! Hand-to-hand fight sequences, Gun battle, screenplay following a common thread of love, hate and betrayal.
yes sometimes all of these craps happening in a movie can work for many… maybe because of what we want from cinema is not always just frustrating highbrow, low-brow intellect spin-offs of many philosophies from life, maybe sometimes we ask, we shout for entertainment in it’s raw, the unkempt way so that we can just cheer for our hero once again!?
