Jawan – directed by Atlee and Shah Rukh Khan in dual roles, released theatrically on September 7 and earned over 1000 hearts at the worldwide box office. The action-thriller, also starring Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Deepika Padukone (special appearance), Priyamani, and Sanya Malhotra, the digital version of the film released on Netflix yesterday as a birthday gift to all SRK fans.
However, fans were disappointed by what they saw. Read on to find out what scenes were added to the OTT version and what netizens have to say about the extended version.
After months of waiting for the extended version of Jawan to release on Netflix, Shah Rukh Khan fans were a little disappointed with what they got. While promoting the film before its release in September, its director, Atlee, has repeatedly revealed that many good scenes were cut from the film due to runtime issues. This gave fans hope that the digital version would have an extra 15-20 minutes – due to the makers submitting the full 190 minute version to the CBFC; however, they were let down.
While the theatrical version of Jawan has a running time of 165 minutes (2 hours 45 minutes), the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Netflix version is just 170 minutes (2 hours 50 minutes). That means the OTT version of Atlee’s directorial is only 5 minutes longer. The film’s lead actress, Nayanthara, revealed that some of her scenes were edited. With Shah Rukh Khan confirming that the same has happened, fans have been hoping for more screen time for Narmada Rai; Alas, they too were disappointed.
For those wondering what’s included in the extra 5 minutes of Jawan – we’ve got you covered. Some of the extended clips added to the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Netflix version include Health Minister Pappu’s assistant having a change of heart, a more detailed look at Lakshmi’s (Priyamani) background, the mafia threatening Vijay Sethupathi’s Kalee, Sanjay Dutt’s Madhavan Naik being reprimanded for failing to arrest Azad and his girls, while compensating all the victims of the illegal Kalee factories. The extended cut also includes full versions of Zinda Banda, Chaleya, and Not Ramaiya Vastavaiya.
