SRK is passionate about cinema and wants to take Indian Cinema ahead but looks like he is saddled with several people who are less passionate. How can one explain this slow motion tripe of a movie. Why so much slow motion? Because the cost is low and it serves as a tangent for low cost stunts and VFX. The only good and thrilling shots are of a Metro careening at high speed in Mumbai and mind you that is not in slow motion. There is no action set piece that is a wow, this is great. Slow motion action is cheating the audience. I am sure SRK wants to push his movies to Mission Impossible level but alas at the moment cannot do so. The next is the thin plot that has several plot holes. What about the violence? This movie is so violent that it would have been an automatic R rating in US if it had been a Hollywood movie. With a star cast of more women than men, this would be a first but when you come to individual roles, none of the women have a meaty one including Deepika Padukone. Sincerely wish, Deepika comes back to Piku days. What is she doing in this nonsense? Finally the villain played by Vijay is a caricature. He does not look at all menacing, in fact his right hand, Murad is more threatening. It is hard to say which one was more mediocre, Pathaan or Jawan. SRK needs a Rajamouli to up Indian Cinema, wish that happens soon. 2 stars for SRK's energy and passion!

Exaggeration galore !!
Good thing we don't have to deal with reality while watching this movie. Exaggeration kept increasing exponentially as the film moved on especially with the action scenes. There was shameless copying of the Hollywood character Bane from Batman movie, which was downright embarrassing. If while watching the movie you get confused as to which Shahrukh Khan is the father and son. Don't worry it's a confusion in all our minds. One with a slight makeup is the father, the other one with more digital touchup is the son. Watching a 58 year old Khan romancing does get awkward but not to worry he is still striking a pose and walking in slow motion. The main villain was decent in his role as he did not engage in overacting. Padukone was good as she portrayed a mother aptly. Sanjay Dutt looked like a last minute addition so he didn't have much of an impact. Not sure why a good actress like Sanya Malhotra accepted this blink and you will miss role. Nayanthara was ok. Should you watch this movie? If you are into flights of fantasy devoid of any reality and over the top acting than this one is for you.

The story is not connected to the events. The interaction of the father and son in the exciting shot does not indicate that there is a connection or knowledge of the events as reality. Complete focus on unexplained audio noise. In the end, the movie was just a waste of time.
A silly comedy and action beyond children's imagination, despite the obvious falsity in it and its distance from realistic excitement. You find it fun for children only and annoying with its sounds for adults. I consider it a failure in making suspense and excitement films, as Indian cinema excels in folklore and colors only.
