As per many reports, the movie made a huge box-office collection and turned out to be the biggest Bollywood hit of all time. After the movie’s success at the box office, many were excited as the Shah Rukh Khan–Deepika Padukone starrer finally released on Prime Video on 22nd March 2023.
Unfortunately, the movie received mixed reviews and failed to live up to its hype. Many people took to social media to share their reviews. From calling it boring to a headache to a great watch, many people shared their reviews online. Want to read Pathaan’s Twitter reviews? Read them here.
One user wrote, “When I saw this film was just taken aback by it’s box office collections..to me it’s just the worst film among some other worst films I have seen..” Another user mentioned, “You can watch it if you want to update your worst movie to-watch list. Guilt to watch for 15-20 min because of my wife pressure”. “Couldn’t tolerate it for more than 15 min. Absolutely bogus”, wrote someone. There were few who enjoyed the movie as they watched it with their family.
Now, Pakistani actor and screenwriter Yasir Hussain has dissed SRK’s movie with a note on Instagram.
While reviewing Pathaan, the popular Hum TV host wrote, “Agar aap mission impossible 1 bhi dekh chukey hain toh shah rukh khan ki pathan aap ko aik story less video game se zyada kuch nahi lagy gi.”
Yasir’s statement on Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan left the internet divided.
While many praised Yasir for speaking the truth, there were some who called out his venom and jealousy towards SRK. One user wrote, “The collection of Pathaan matches Pakistan’s GDP.” Another user wrote, #yasirhussain has to first reach the level of SRK to pass judgement or make unnecessary comments to stay in the news… he’s a comedian turned actor and not a very good one either, his wife #iqraaziz is far superior to him in the acting field.”
Another person wrote, “ I dont know who this guy is. The director and team’s goal was to do good business and make money, and they achieved that goal extremely successfully and broke all records. All other opinions after this are useless and could be dumped into the “biased box”. While defending the movie, one fan wrote, “Really that is your foolish opinion not everyone’s man .. the millions who went and saw the movie will not agree with you. In the meantime you can use your negative energy to make a new video game for Pakistanis.”
There were many who agreed with his review comments aswell. A user wrote, “He is not wrong.. It’s a horrible movie.. Goes to show that box office collection has no relevance with quality of movie..” Someone wrote, “I agree with him..The VFX is painful to watch. The helicopter fight scene is so cringe, when helicopters were flying so close to ground, traffic didn’t panic at all, no screams nothing, even the cars look cartoonish. Don’t try to defend this garbage”. One user wrote, “He’s not wrong n I am an Indian…. Pathan movie the story seem ok but how they execute the scenes is beyond stupidity… it’s all about star power still am happy I love srk n Deepika.”
