Many Indians have an infatuation with big-name entertainment. Fans constantly strive to catch their favourite actors in the movies, regardless of the circumstances, regardless of the plot or production. One such movie is Pathaan, which is worth seeing just for Shah Rukh Khan’s magnificent screen presence. The film also has some breath-taking graphics and action scenes that will keep theatergoers entertained.

The plot of this film has been seen in a lot of previously released films. An agent overcoming many obstacles to aid his nation in escaping a terrible crisis, and so on. Shah Rukh Khan is shown in a strong part in Pathaan, which has several action scenes. There is also a special surprise in the film regarding the spyverse from Yash Raj films that can only be viewed in theatres.

Shah Rukh Khan, as usual, did his utmost to delight the audience with his acting and manner, however in a few situations, the actor’s styling comes off as strange. Although Deepika Padukone has performed the necessary duties for the part, she lacks all appeal in this film. Although his acting was adequate, John Abraham looked good throughout the action scenes. The other actors all performed their roles as needed for the characters.

The Pathaan movie looks good technically. Although the songs by Vishal & Sheykhar are wonderful, they could feel out of place and disrupt the movie’s rhythm. One of the film’s standout features is the cinematography by Satchith Paulose. For the spectator, the fights created by Casey O’Neill, Craig Macrae, and Sunil Rodrigues [ROD] are a visual feast. Although Yash Raj films have good production values, the VFX should have been given a little more attention.

Once more, director Siddharth Anand aimed to produce a pure action film with a straightforward plot. Although his production has a few impressive action scenes, the story and screenplay are destined to fall flat.

The action scenes in Pathaan are masterfully choreographed and will undoubtedly delight SRK fans.
