The Pathan, a crime thriller directed by Siddharth Anand, stars Shahrukh Khan as the lead role. We can observe that the story, screenplay, and language for the Pathan movie were written by Siddharth Anand, Shridhar Raghavan, and Abbas. The film stars Dipak Kapadia, Siddharth Dhamaal, and many other actors in supporting roles in addition to Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham as the central protagonists. The movie looks to be extremely interesting.

About the film, YRF has launched its Spy Universe with this movie. In this world, Shahrukh Khan is his new detective. When a terrorist attack on India is threatened, the plot of “Pathan” opens with the intelligence service spotting a face abroad. The hunt of Pathan then begins. Where Pathan has come up to defend the nation, the same ex-RAW agent Jim has turned against it. This gym currently houses the private terrorist group Outfit X. Deepika Padukone, who is a single ISI agent, is concurrently striving to add a plot twist.

The plot follows India's withdrawal of Article 370 (the special status of Jammu and Kashmir) and its effects on a Pakistani commander who wants India to make up for this "error." He reaches out to the fearsome Jim, an ex-RAW agent who was wronged by his own people. He is joined by his seductive partner Rubai, a former ISI agent (Deepika Padukone) with murky motivations. As they cross continents and engage in a risky game of betrayal and retaliation, Pathaan, Jim, and Rubai lock horns and exchange glances. The three compete to destroy and defend the worlds they hold dear.

The movie is engaging in the beginning. Even still, the plot has a lot of unexpected turns and turns that will keep you captivated. The second half is consistently exciting as well. For the first time as an action hero, Shah Rukh Khan displays amazing action. The fight between John and Shahrukh is quite enjoyable to watch. The surprise is Deepika Padukone, who is seen performing amazing actions.

About the performance, Shahrukh’s act is remarkable, and Deepika has strong screen presence. Shahrukh Khan does a good job portraying Pathan. Shahrukh is very great in the action scenes. Deepika Padukone has a good screen presence, but she hasn't had many dialogue-driven roles that have been a success. While she has been given the character of a Pakistani doctor to become an ISI spy, the audacity with which she is presented does not have a Pakistani flair.

Siddharth Anand, the director, has done amazing work. He did a good job of presenting each scene. It is challenging to identify any flaws in the film's screenplay since it is so good.

The background music in Pathan is really nice contemporary music. One benefit is the absence of repetition in the music. In some places, the Pathan anthem has also been played. Because there is new music in every scene, it never becomes boring.

Salman Khan, aka Bhaijaan, also makes an appearance in the movie. Salman makes a fantastic "Tiger" appearance. As long as Salman is on the screen, you will find humour. The plot of this movie is totally predictable.

The writers were unable to provide the backstories of each character despite how quickly the movie's plot unfolds. ou need to understand the rest of Deepika's biography because we've only covered the first few seconds of her upbringing.  The writers didn't go into considerable detail while developing the Pathan character, even with the few facts given.

John, who ended up playing the antagonist, was thought to be a little too strong, but he was easily dropped in the end.  You might also find it strange that the villain keeps giving himself advice on how to thwart his own plans.

In the YRF espionage universe, Karan and Arjun are reunited as Bhai meets the Badshah to offer you a memorable whistling moment. Pathaan includes slow-motion entry, a classic good vs evil battle, and most significantly, a sensual, smouldering Shah Rukh Khan who can fight for the right things both on and off-screen. Pathaan has all the elements of a masala film.

Overall, film Pathaan is worthy to watch once for its entertainment quotient with top-notch action scenes and performances.
