Once the undisputed king of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan’s career took a serious hit after a string of box office bombs. After four years of self-reflection, he resurfaced as ‘Pathaan’. Here we have the movie Pathaan.

Let’s see if Shah Rukh Khan can work his magic one more time.

Pakistan’s ISI has threatened to attack India using a private terrorist organization in response to the Indian government’s decision to repeal Article 370.

The head of the ISI contacts a renegade Indian agent named Jim (John Abraham), who plans to exact revenge on India.

Many years ago, when Jim’s wife was taken hostage by terrorists, he became bitter towards India because our government did nothing to rescue her.

As part of his plan to create a deadly virus, Jim kidnaps an Indian scientist in Dubai and forces him to work for him. India’s top secret agent Pathaan (Shah Rukh Khan) is tasked with taking down Jim.

In this case, Pathaan is assisted by Rubina, a defected ISI agent (Deepika Padukone). But can he trust Rubina’s honesty and integrity?

Performances by artists:
Shah Rukh Khan sheds his romantic image and turns into an action star. Shah Rukh Khan, with his eight-pack abs, seems to be in shape for such roles. His charismatic screen presence and dialogues are the most appealing aspects of the film. He is extremely skillful in performing action stunts. Another highlight is his bond with Salman Khan, who appears briefly in the film.

Deepika Padukone excels in both the glamor show and the action stunts. She does a lot of action stunts with Shah Rukh Khan and has a meaty role.

John Abrahm is a compelling rogue cop. He has a charismatic presence. Dimple Kapadia is cast as a boss.

Technical excellence:
“Pathaan” is a true spy thriller with world traveling action. The locations are breathtaking. The visual setting is opulent and grand. The ice stunts are reminiscent of a James Bond movie. However, the stunts are really large scale, conceived and executed. We see jet planes flying through the sky and helicopter battles.

The cinematography is excellent and fits the scale of the film. The work with visual effects is enough. Background music is ideal. The pace of the movie should have been snappy.

There’s a title card at the beginning of “Pathaan” that explains that the movie is connected to the YRF spyverse. Both “Ek Tha Tiger” and “Tiger Zinda Hai” are produced by the same studio. In this latest installment, Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of Agent Pathaan in yet another spy movie. In this espionage universe, we also get a visit from Agent Tiger.

Everything about ‘Pathaan’, from the setting to the plot to the production, is typical of a spy thriller. The plot is not much. But director Siddharth Anand presents it in such a way that it can win over general moviegoers as well as fans of Shah Rukh Khan.

The first half of the film is largely spent establishing the hero’s mission, introducing the villain and Deepika Padukone – SRK’s romance. After the intermission, the movie starts. An explosive “Pathan meets Tiger” moment kicks off the action after the intermission. The on-screen chemistry between Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan makes for a fun episode.

The second half features a plethora of thrilling and visually stunning action sequences. The lack of logic and reason is disappointing, but the thrill is well worth the price.

Let’s face it: the film adheres strictly to the standards of the spy thriller genre and its established formula. It’s just too taxing to watch some of these stunts. Also, the story’s attempt to provide emotional appeal falls flat. There isn’t much in the movie that makes you feel patriotic, either. But Shah Rukh Khan’s charisma makes us believe in the unbelievable.

Star power and action are Pathaan’s main assets. The intended viewers of the film are those who like action movies in general. So it will be effective for them. For others, though, it’ll just be another slick, high-budget action movie.

All in all, watch “Pathaan” for Shah Rukh Khan’s charm and some jaw-dropping moments, but don’t expect too much from it. It’s not great, nor a total letdown. In the theater, however, the film provides a fair amount of enjoyable entertainment.

What it comes down to: Routine but captivating
