"Fan" deals with an unusual story of a 25-year-old boy named Gaurav (Shah Rukh Khan), who is a huge fan of film star Aryan Khanna (Shah Rukh Khan), who he considers God. Gaurav embarks on a journey from Delhi to Mumbai to wish the star on his birthday. Gaurav bears a striking resemblance to Aryan.

When things don't go according to plan, Gaurav's love and passion for his idol turns into a dangerous obsession that crosses the fine line. What happens next forms the crux of the movie.

The audience says "Fan" has an interesting and unique story and arresting screenplay. The movie is engaging right from the beginning to the end and the second half provides an edge-of-the-seat thriller. The climax is the most exciting part of the movie. Shah Rukh Khan has played a double role and the film is his show all the way. The superstar has probably given his career's best performance in the movie.

"Fan" has been produced with a whopping budget of Rs 85 crore by Aditya Chopra under the banner Yash Raj Films and it has got brilliant production values. Vishal-Shekhar's songs, Andrea Guerra's background score and Manu Anand's cinematography are the biggest attractions on the technical front.

After watching the film, many viewers took to their Twitter handles to share their verdict on it. We bring you some unique Twitter comments. Here is the live update of the "Fan" movie review by the audience:

#Fan Interval: So enthralling. One of the most exciting plots in recent times comes to life through a stun show from SRK. Enjoying this. #Fan: Fantastic. Intriguing take on the rush of blood between a fan and his idol. Tense, fun and emotionally gripping too. Recommended! #Fan: Ideally SRK's best since Chak De India, he is absolutely spotless as the die hard fan Gaurav. 20 min sequence in FH and climax - wow! #Fan: May not please the entertainment junkie, but this is a brave step from SRK sans doubts. Try it, for this'll help you forgive Dilwale. #Fan: Loosely based on The Fan and The King of Comedy, with a shade of Vaali too. Yet, I'm already toying with the idea of seeing it again.

It's interval for #Fan & it is going very good so far. @iamsrk has given very good performance. #Fan is fantastic film & superb work by @iamsrk, it's vfx,screenplay are awasome & it has well designed action sequences. #Fan is a emotional film which dealt with relationship of a fan & starts & at climax you wil get all the answers, "Must Watch". #Fan has shaped up very well but it's becoz of only @iamsrk, Manish Sharma fail to show his talent,editing & cinematography is very well. #Fan is very outstanding & emotional film with terrific performance by @iamsrk, "a must watched film".My Ratings ****.

Halfway through #Fan and we've only had 3 babies cry, one kid having a meltdown and 2 running ard playing #DontStealMyShow #Dubai Meanwhile, #Fan review at intermission: intense, slightly slow paced; Gaurav's character disturbing; @iamsrk entertaining #ShahRukh #Fan post intermission: (no spoilers) Is very #Bollywood. Has some 'say what now' moments. #SRK is of course, a star, but as #Gaurav

SRK the actor is back. @iamsrk loved Fan It's amazing From acting to screen play to direction to bgm to action scenes & locations everything is superb. have to admit now, you are god of acting. still can't believe that same actor played both roles aryan & GAURAV. after 1st half everyone was like what will happen in 2nd half. Everyone was discussing during interval. but it was opposite of what we thought. best second half . I don't how to describe the awesomeness of CLIMAX. Standing OVATION.
