Pathaan Movie Review: It will take Shah Rukh Khan to save Bollywood.

Pathaan Movie Review: It’s hard to believe, but Shah Rukh Khan is back on the big screen after four years with Pathaan.

And after waiting four years to see SRK in Pathaan, co-starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, what’re another 30 minutes of teasers and trailers? After three teasers – Jawan, Kisika Bhai Kisiki Jaan, and Bholaa – and two trailers – Shehzada and Tu Jhooti Main Makkaar – you arrive in 2019, at a watershed moment in Indian history.

General Kaadir, a Pakistani general, learns of India’s decision to repeal Article 370 just as he diagnosed with a terminal disease. A war  waged, and John’s Jim, a rogue ex-RAW agent, has assigned the task of bringing India to heel.

The deadline is in three years. Pathaan, aka Shah Rukh Khan, will undoubtedly save India in the cinematic realm, but will it be enough to save Bollywood?

Pathaan, an ex-RAW who is now part of the new JOCR unit, tasked with stopping Jim’s attack. His investigation leads him to Deepika Padukone.

Pathaan realizes she’s an undercover ISI agent trying to catch Jim from the inside after hearing one Besharam Rang song – which, by the way, keeps the saffron bikini, and there’s a lot of it, from dancing to romance to severe action scenes.

Pathaan collaborates with her only to betrayed later, just as a key component of a bio-weapon discovered. Yes, our Pathaan is not the brightest nut, but he is amusing. As a result, we forgive.

Pathaan, like any Yash Raj Films spy thriller, is slick, stylish, and clean. Pathaan caters to a section of paisa-wasool entertainer-wanting cinegoers, thanks to a generous dose of Bollywood masala grown in YRF’s backyard.

But what about Shah Rukh Khan fans who aren’t used to seeing their God of Love with blood in his mouth? I’ve never seen Shah Rukh Khan whack so many people in my tricenarian life, with enemy bones popping, jaws breaking, skulls cracking, and blood splattering. How about them?
