Jawan review: Shah Rukh Khan packs a punch in this massy, meaningful actioner
SRK's film release is equated to a festival. There's a notable excitement as theatres get housefull even for early morning shows.
Popularity of Shah Rukh Khan
The movie delves deep into prevalent issues of corruption and touches on the significant topic of farmer suicides. It also provides social commentary on the state of the healthcare system in India.
Themes and Plot
The non-linear narrative and extensive use of flashbacks make the film engaging, though there's a noted inconsistency in storytelling.
The action scenes are top-notch, intricate, and bring a fusion of Bollywood and South Indian cinema aesthetics.
Jawan has a strong supporting cast with the female characters playing significant roles. Performances by Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara are highlighted, but Nayanthara's chemistry with SRK is deemed lacking.
Supporting Characters and Performances
SRK dons multiple looks in the film, each leaving an impact, especially the bald look during a metro hijack sequence.
Look and Style
While the screenplay by Atlee and S. Ramanagirivasan is engaging, Sumit Arora's dialogues are said to be forgettable.
Dialogues and Screenplay
Deepika Padukone's special appearance and dance number with SRK brings nostalgia, referencing their previous work together in Chennai Express.
The film is described as a "wholesome watch" that constantly demands the audience's attention, especially for its climactic sequence.
