Jawan becomes an overrated film post-OTT release. It is widely known that Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film, Jawan, was a massive blockbuster at the box office, and it generated record collections for the Hindi version. The film went on to collect more than 1000Cr Gross alone in Hindi. However, Jawan became an overrated film post-OTT release.
During the theatrical release of the film, the trade expected it to do huge numbers in the South because the director, Atlee, was from the South Indian film industry, and it started on a solid note with big numbers on the opening day But, after the weekend, it did not maintain the same level.
With Tamil and Telugu languages combined, Jawan’s Gross was around 70Cr in India. Word of mouth was not unanimous in the South, unlike the North, where there was superb talk about the film.
The South audiences felt that they had already seen films like these. Now, after the OTT release, most of the South audience thought it was a very ordinary film. It was also the weakest film of Atlee and was very overrated in theatres. Even some sections of the northern public felt the same; the movie was an ordinary film.
Jawan is a highly intense action thriller that depicts a man who is driven by a personal vendetta to rectify injustices in society. Shah Rukh Khan played Vikram Rathore and his son Azad in this story, encompassing social and political issues and entertainment. Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara played the other significant roles in the film. Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Dutt play memorable cameo roles as well.
Sanya Malhotra, Priyamani, Girija Oak, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, Lehar Khan, Aaliyah Qureshi, Ridhi Dogra, Sunil Grover, and Mukesh Chhabra have also appeared in other prominent roles in the film. The first time Shah Rukh and Atlee collaborated was with Jawan. Anirudh Ravichander has composed the music for the film.
