After a long wait, Maneesh Sharma's highly-anticipated Fan finally opened this past weekend to somewhat mixed reviews. Critics unanimously and rightly raved about Shah Rukh Khan's amazing performance (in a double role as semi-villainous superfan Gaurav Chandna, and semi-fictionalised superstar Aryan Khanna), while questioning the plot of the movie itself. In a film with a lot of meta-references to Khan's career, perhaps the most meta fact of all is that everyone left enamoured by him, even though the film itself is pretty shit.
