Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap Shah Rukh Khan’s new movie Pathan has been praised after watching the first day’s first show. A smiling Anurag told reporters outside the theater that he had never seen Shah Rukh so handsome. He also said that he has never seen Shahrukh do an action scene like he did in Pathan.

Anurag told reporters,Shahrukh Khan It has not been seen, it was not beautiful before. So we came to see him and our hearts were happy. And there is so much ghastly action, a first for Shah Rukh in such a role. I don’t think they have done this type of action before (I have never seen Shah Rukh Khan so handsome. So we came to see him and we were very happy. The action sequence is so dangerous, it is the first time that Shah Rukh Khan Is such a character I don’t think he has ever done this kind of action).
Hindustan Times reviewed the film, “Pathan Doesn’t bore you but seems a little stretched in the second half when you want to climax. There are some dialogues that you find laughable or too heavy, but the overall writing is not impressive enough to leave a mark. Pathan is full of action but it’s best not to question the logic behind the gravity-defying lifts and falls because there isn’t any. They are a visual treat and a spectacle that immerses you effortlessly. It gets a little too unrealistic at times, but that’s what you get when filmmakers try to make a movie on the scale of a Hollywood actioner.”
A spy action thriller, Pathan is directed by Siddharth Anand. It is a part of Aditya Chopra’s detective universe. The film stars Shah Rukh, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. The film was released in theaters on Wednesday. The film opened to packed theaters across the country.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh said that Pathan sold around 556,000 tickets on the first day, just behind Baahubali 2’s record-setting 650,000 tickets on the first day. The film is being released on 8000 screens, of which 2500 are overseas where Shahrukh has a strong following.
