Take a look at Taran Adarsh’s post here:
Jawan has been shattering box office records ever since it released – it is Bollywood’s biggest opener and fetched its fastest ₹ 300 crore. Many of the records Jawan is smashing are already owned by Shah Rukh Khan – his previous release Pathaan reset box office benchmarks that are now being demolished by Jawan.
Jawan opened to stellar reviews from both critics and fans. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 3.5 stars out of 5. He wrote, “Who is better equipped to do all this than SRK, who, even when he plays a larger-than-life action hero on a mission to take down a powerful industrialist who has wronged him and his nation in more ways than one, can stay rooted in the real world and animate the canvas with humanity even as he projects an invincible, superhero-like persona?”
