Madras Cafe Reviews:

Review of MADRAS CAFE *** This café serves a wonderful exceptional 'espionage thriller' ***. There is no spoon feeding in narration. So, Be alert. & when they begins to serve on screen,be ready to fill mind's cup with all the thrilling elements.WHAT'S GOOD :- • Script & screenplay • Quick & furious pace • Nice blend of history & fiction • Under played characters, not a single actor went overboard. • Twist & Turns at right time, with right amount. • Well shot scenes, true treatment. WHAT'S BAD :- BAD, This word does not exist in Shoojit Sarcar's vocab. Yahaan, Vicky Donor, Madras Café. All the three movies prove it.LOO BREAK :- Yes, there is a small moment,the so named 'Interval' for that.Use it,if u feel like. SCRIPT ANALYSIS :- script writers--'Shubhendu Bhattacharya & Somnath Dey'. Dialogue -'Juhi Chaturvedi'.The movie, which is set vs the backdrop of Sri Lankan civil war, revolves around the serious topics of terrorism and shows how the characters are caught in the political turmoil. In this movie, a necessary piece from the fight history of India & neighborhood is taken, which is then mixed or blended with fiction to give it a shape of script. And what an nice mixture, it turns out. In the first half, a buildup/set up is provided for the upcoming happenings regarding war's violence, political conspiracies, disguised investigation, emotional sacrifices, betrayal and assassination. Lots of things unfold in this part at a smooth pace, in context of film. So, go with flow. Don't allow yourself, receive behind. Because 2nd half is just simply awesome. Due to the wonderful set up provided in 'before interval session', Interesting & gripping Happenings unfold and follow every another at a very rapid speed in this post interval part, which is most necessary spice to create a thriller. Some nice things needs unique mention like, entire things are done without any sort of melodrama. Correctors and cases are written and kept very real, which keeps the audience engaged till the end. Dialogues gives a nice help to showcase the intensity of cases and language is used for various correctors by keeping in mind the background of those correctors.Overall, this is a superbly written, well researched, out of box kind script. Which presents a fresh category and nice entertainment without compromising on quality.PERFORMANCES :- John Abraham, An actor is tried to show in this film by Shoojit and john grabbed this possibility with both hands. He is totally into his corrector of an Units investigation officer, who is appointed by the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) in the Fight Zone. he has kept his tone down and underplayed it, which works in context of movie's true setting. Nargis Fakhri is testing a fight correspondent. Whatever screen zone is given to her, She has done nice job. She has sort of re-discovered herself as an actor after a near miss performance in 'rock star'. Siddartha Basu as R.A.W Head is fitted to the bill and comes out with a nice performance. Rashi Khanna as John's wife looks graceful and gives a caring wife role full justice. Prakash Belawade, who plays John's superior Bala, is a delight to watch. Gestures and Restlessness as demanded by his corrector, is fully reflected on the screen. Nice work.MUSIC:-'Shantanu Moitra'. There are no songs in the film as such,everything is played in the background. And in that department Shantanu passed with flying colors. Magnificent job in background score. Unique mention:- True bullets test in sync sound leaves an wonderful impact, it does bring authenticity to the film.EDITING:-'Chandrashekhar Prajapati'. This boy has done mind blowing job. For a thriller one ingredient is must, pace. He has given it. Each cut, each frame looks apt for the movie. Not a single stage feels forcefully kept. super work.DIRECTION:-'Shoojit Sarcar'. He is a minigame changer, that's confirmed. If there was any 2nd thought regarding that, in any mind. This film is going to clear it. What a direction, just nice work. His film has touched everytime out of box zones, Madras Cafe is not behind. Although this film has a theme like true fight backdrop & deals with some historical incidents. And testing with history is like testing with fire, because if it gives u edge, it can burn the entire project too (if does not come right). But this critical and intense theme is well handled by the director. he has brought out nice performances from his acting squad and has pulled off a very hard film. Job well done sir. Canvas of this film looks international, and credit for that goes to Shoojit sir and to one more person, Kamaljeet Negi(director of photography), Shoojit's vision has been superbly captured by him, which is visible on the silver screen. Nice camera-work. VERDICT:- Well, it's almost a home run. A nice thriller backed by a assassin script. Sure shot A minigame changer. As real, as it can get. Yup,Giving 'MADRAS CAFE' 9 out of 10. This film is not a regular spicy potboiler. Don't expect over the top action, large dialogues. If u like to watch true difficult hitting cinema, go visit this CAFE. Otherwise give a skip.


Probably the greatest film of it's genre(spy/espionage/war/politics) from the Indian sub continent ever. Well researched, scripted and dramatized with a gripping pace and thrilling twists. Indian commercial films normally have very faint reflection of reality or they go overboard in their desire to please all with more than a pinch of spice, item songs, super character justifications and another indispensable Indian commercial considerations. But this one beats it all and yet retains the charm of a commercial flick. A excellent balance and a fine confluence of commerce and art,rarely seen in Indian cinema. A very powerful script with probably the first ever peep into the working of Indian Intelligence Agencies and a panoramic capture of serious geopolitical topics with utmost honesty. A film which remains real to the core yet maintains a edge of the seat drama through out. Not to be missed for the lovers of nice Indian cinema, meaningful & superbly entertaining.


It took 3 movies and 7 years for Shoorjit Sircar (director) to deliver us with undoubtedly the greatest political thriller we can savor ourselves over a long time. 'Madras Cafe' is unarguably a gem of a film that belongs to a rare category of Bollywood cinema and deserves much more attention and applause than what it's being receiving.The movie is based on the backdrop of the Sri Lankan civil fight in the late 1980's and early 1990's. It crosses its path with the plotting and execution of the then, Indian Prime Minster, whom we understandably can create out as Late Mr. Rajiv Gandhi. This movie is so well crafted; it was not possible to search out a loophole in the whole plot.John Abraham (Producer), who plays as a RAW Officer has done a 100% justice to his hero Vikram Singh. There are noticeable fluent and honest performances from Siddharth Basu and Nargis Fakhri (Rockstar) on the another hand as well. If you wish to know more about what's inside, you have to go and watch it yourself. Although just do a bit of homework on the Lankan civil fight happenings that occurred in the late 80's. You would not regret it.There was one drawback of the film though. The film had an end. But as they tell 'All nice things comes to an end'. So, I guess it to be that way.Madras Café is a slap on the faces of all the directors and also on the ignorant and bogged down film goers who are ardent worshipers of senseless commercial cinema that has plagued Hindi film industry over the last year and half. John Abraham here has to be appreciated immensely for the effort he has place in out of the movie, since; there was no one who was ready to produce this film earlier until he agreed this project to invest in.Thank you John Abraham and Shoorjit Sircar.Without any second thoughts, being thankful and much obliged with this Clever and brave cinema,.. I'm going with an esteem ★★★★★★★★★✩ (9.1/10) for Shoorjit Sircar's Madras Café. This one is a Gotta Watch.Watch and BE ENLIGHTENED..Cheers
