Pathaan Movie Release and Review Live Updates: Shah Rukh Khan’s film gets unprecedented response, YRF adds midnight shows – The Indian Express

Pathaan movie release, movie review LIVE UPDATES: Shah Rukh Khan is returning to the screens after four long years with Siddharth Anand’s Pathaan. Also starring Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana, the film is a part of YRF’s spy universe. Salman Khan is expected to have an extended cameo in the film and Shah Rukh had previously confirmed that the two actors shot together for the Siddharth Anand film. It is yet to be seen if Hrithik Roshan will also appear in a cameo in the film as War also belongs to the same universe as Tiger and Pathaan.
In Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan plays a RAW agent who has been on a sabbatical for a while but returns to duty after John Abraham’s Jim poses a threat to the nation. The trailer promised an action packed film with Shah Rukh at its centre.
Before the trailer, YRF released the first song of the ‘Besharam Rang’ which ignited a lot of controversy. The colours of SRK and Deepika’s costumes in the song had many political outfits opposing the release of the film unless the makers made changes to the music video. The makers then released the dance number, and also the theme song of the film ‘Jhoome Jo Pathaan’.
Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan is releasing on a Wednesday but it is expected that the film will see a rise in footfalls the next day because of Republic Day.
Tamil producer Dhananjayan showered praise on Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan on Twitter. In a separate tweet, he also praised Shah Rukh and Salman Khan’s camaraderie in a cameo done by Tiger actor. “#PathaanMovie is like an Indian #Jamesbond film with fantastic action sequences & fabulous performances from  @iamsrk @deepikapadukone #JohnAbraham , well directed by #siddharthAnand for #SridharRaghavan’s screenplay.  @BeingSalmanKhan cameo adds big strength. Congrats @yrf,” read the tweet.
Renowned cinematographer and filmmaker Ravi K Chander praised Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan and called it a blockbuster. He wrote on Twitter, “#Pathaan  is a joy ride ..King is back with a bang and how .. absolutely stunning @iamsrk . Loved everything about it .. @yrf .. sure shot #BlockBusterPathaan.”
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted that midnight shows for Pathaan have been added by production house Yash Raj Films. He wrote on Twitter, “PATHAAN’ MIDNIGHT SHOWS BEGIN… #YRF adds late night shows of #Pathaan – starting tonight [from 12.30 am] – across #India to meet the unprecedented public demand.”
Superstar Kamal Haasan congratulated Shah Rukh Khan on the success of Pathaan. Kamal refered to himself as his Hey Ram character Saket and wrote on Twitter, “Hearing great reports about Pathan. Saket congratulates Pathan. Way to go brother @iamsrk”. 
After some morning shows of Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan were cancelled in parts of Indore after protests from a couple of groups demanding the screening to be stalled, shows have been resumed in these theatres from 3 pm.
Fans are in awe of Deepika Padukone’s action avatar in the film Pathaan. So much so, fans have started a campaign on Twitter calling her ‘ranisa of Bollywood’. The name has a reference to Deepika’s film Padmaavat, in which she played the role of a Rajput queen.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan has opened to a strong response by loyal Shah Rukh Khan fans and audience. While early estimates show that the film is likely to collect Rs 50 crore on opening day, many on social media continued to trend the hashtag of #BoycottPathaan. Some parts of the country like Karnataka and Indore have seen protest at theatres as well.
Actor Samantha Ruth Prabhu shared an excited post for Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan. Celebrating the film’s release, she posted the film’s poster and wrote, “It’s Pathaan day”!
Protestors belonging to Hindu Jagran Manch threw stones at a theatre screening Pathaan in Karnataka’s Kalburgi area, as per reports. Security has been increased at Shetty theatre.

Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan has got a great opening at theatres on Wednesday. According to industry tracker BoxOfficeIndia, the film saw 60 per cent opening in morning shows, which is the second highest after KGF 2 in terms of post-pandemic releases. This is still a considerable feat for the film, considering its release is on a non-holiday Wednesday, as opposed to KGF 2, which was a holiday release.

Morning shows of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Pathaan were cancelled at some theatres in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore city on the day of the film’s release on Wednesday following protests by right-wing organisations, reported PTI.
Pathaan is directed by Siddharth Anand, who was appreciated for making the 2019 film War starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. The director had previously made films like Bang Bang!, Anjaana Anjaani, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Ta Ra Rum Pum and Salaam Namaste. Siddharth had earlier spoken about casting John Abraham as the villain in the film. “For Pathaan to be larger than life, we needed to have a towering villain who is equally larger than life. We wanted someone who is ruthless and suave, and commands an electric presence on screen. So, the villain in Pathaan was written keeping John Abraham in mind,” he said in a statement.
He added, “He (John) was our first and only choice, and we were certain that we wanted a villain that the audience would cherish forever. I am delighted to see the response that people have showered on John as he takes on Shah Rukh Khan in a blood-soaked, adrenaline-pumping rivalry that will be epic in every sense possible. John is the perfect opposite of Pathaan on screen and we have made their rivalry look deliciously edge of the seat. It will be one hell of a thrilling showdown.”
