Is “Jawan” by Shah Rukh Khan and Atlee similar to “Darkman” by Sam Raimi and Liam Neeson? Fans seem to think so | Hindi Film News

Shah Rukh Khan on Friday revealed the first look teaser of his upcoming action entertainer starring Atlee, titled Jawan.

“An action-packed 2023! We bring you #Jawan, an explosive entertainer hitting theaters on June 2, 2023,” the superstar said as he shared the teaser on his social media handles. The 1 minute 30 second clip showed SRK with his head and hands in bandages, in a secret lair full of machine guns, explosive ammunition and outdated technology to keep him in touch with the outside world. Unlike the other Bollywood heroes, this film will see SRK bloody and bruised and will have most of his face wrapped in bandages.

If Shah Rukh Khan’s avatar in this clip gave you déjà vu, it may be because you saw Sam Raimi’s 1990 anti-hero film Darkman.

Starring Liam Neeson as the vengeful Marvel anti-hero, Darkman follows expert scientist Peyton Westlake, who is in the process of developing artificial skin when his lab mysteriously explodes with him inside.

Driven insane by his injuries and filled with a spirit of vengeance, he becomes the “Darkman” and sets out on a quest for blood. “They destroyed everything he had, everything he was. Now crime has a new enemy and justice has a new face.

Fans were quick to notice the similar character design when they took to Twitter to compare “Jawan” to Marvel anti-hero Darkman.

Check out their reactions below:

Aside from a few similarities, it’s highly unlikely that SRK’s next film will have much in common with the 90’s Hollywood flick, given that Darkman mostly emerges under cover of night, as his synthetic skin only lasts 99 minutes when exposed to it exposed to light.

Speaking of the film, Shah Rukh Khan said, “Jawan is a universal story that transcends languages ​​and geographies for all to enjoy. Credit goes to Atlee for creating this unique film which was an amazing experience for me too as I love action movies! The teaser is just the tip of the iceberg and gives a glimpse of what’s to come.”

The film, which hit theaters earlier this year, is slated for release on June 2, 2023 and will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
