Sarcastic Anupama Trolls Deepika, Calls her action scene in Pathaan “A Video Game”

One of the most-awaited movies of 2023, Pathaan marks the return of Shah Rukh Khan on the big screen after 4 years. Made on a huge budget of Rs 250 crore, the YRF-backed project directed by Siddharth Anand also features Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in important roles. Anupama Chopra has now criticized some unwanted action sequences of Pathaan.

Deepika in Pathaan

According to reports, one of the highest-paid actresses in Bollywood, Deepika Padukone has charged a whopping amount of Rs 15 crore for her role in Pathaan. The 37-year-old essayed the role of a RAW agent who aids Pathaan in taking down a terrorist organization. In this film, Padukone is seen performing a few high-octane action sequences that left netizens in shock.


However, some of her action scenes were too cringe and weren’t necessary in the first place. Popular critic, Anupama talks about the same and said a few things that were intolerable according to her.

On the Film Companions’ review show, Anupama Chopra and Anmol Jamwal discussed the lows of SRK’s Pathaan.

“Pathaan was all good but dips were there. I think the second half of the film, where the film starts to wobble, the whole sequence on the Ice (SRK chasing John Abraham on an ice pack lake in Russia), and the VFX did not match the idea with the director Siddharth Anand’s vision,” said Anupama.


The intolerable scenes from Pathaan

“For a person, there is the point when you realize ‘No, now I can’t buy it’ (intolerable). When SRK chases Jim (John Abraham) on an ice-pack lake, Deepika comes into the scene with a skets. I mean this is where I can’t take it,” says Anmol, who said it is good to see actresses like Katrina Kaif and Deepika coming in for some action scenes but things never look good in some sequences.

Adding to Anmol’s point of view, Anupama says, “For me, it felt too much like a video game. It felt like there wasn’t enough emotional punch to it.”

Meanwhile, Pathaan collected approximately Rs 130 crore in its first two days and early reports suggest that the film has managed to collect Rs 35-36 crore on its third day, as per Box Office India. This drop in figures was likely because Friday was a working day. It is expected that the film’s collections will rise during the upcoming weekend. With such strong figures during the first three days, the film’s three-day collection is expected to be around 160 crore nett.
