Jawan is a film driven by a powerful message, revolving around an army officer who has been wronged, and his son who carries on his mission. The emotional drama and theatrical elements are prominent.
Shah Rukh Khan's dual role as the father and son is a clever move, but the screenplay, helmed by Atlee, has its fair share of flaws and inconsistencies. Nayanthara deserves special mention for her excellent support to SRK.
The concept of a group of individuals, led by Shah Rukh, striving to be modern-day Robin Hoods, helping the downtrodden, is not entirely new, with recent examples like Money Heist and Kamal Haasan's Indian.
However, Jawan distinguishes itself through its unique treatment and execution. Shah Rukh seamlessly embodies Atlee's blockbuster vision, and the camera work complements the actor's presence beautifully.
While the supporting cast doesn't have much to do beyond adding size and grandeur to the film, SRK remains the focal point. Vijay Sethupathi's portrayal as the antagonist is exceptional, particularly in the scene where he takes on the role of Santa, delivering a menacing yet humorous performance.
