Chef Movie Review: Star Performances
Saif Ali Khan as Roshan Kalra or desi Carl Casper proves that he was the best choice to play this character. The 47-year-old actor played his role with such sincerity and simplicity that you will surely fall in love with his character. Displaying the fatherly love with maturity and maintaining the deeper nuances of the character is something makes the Khan perfect choice for this role. He’s the complete entertainer in his role.
Svar Kamble as Saif’s son played a vital role in the film and he succeeded greatly in portraying his character. His scenes with Saif Ali Khan are something to watch this film out for.
Padmapriya Janakiraman is damn so hot!!! You just can’t miss the scenes when she’s on screen. She gave justice to her role and character as required from her. Chandan Roy Sanyal as Saif’s sous-chef is uplifting and brings the amazing positivity. Dinesh P Nair as food truck driver is a surprise package for us as his comic timing is something one just can’t miss. He is too hilarious in some scenes. Milind Soman plays Robert Downey’s role from the original and gives justice to it. The sexiness that Scarlett Johansson brought in the original film was highly missed in this film as Sobhita Dhulipala is not up to the mark.
Chef Movie Review: Direction, Music
The director Raja Krishna Menon makes this story organized amazingly. He has done an amazing job in making certain changes from the official adaptation and showing it in desi Indian style. He made this fil an appetizing treat for the cinematic taste buds.
Raghu Dixit was the perfect choice for the music of this film. He prepared songs that fit on their appropriate situations and makes you soothe as well. Songs like Darmiyaan, Banjara & Shugal Laga Le are just incredible to listen on repeat mode. We just hope that we could see Raghu Dixit in Bollywood in future more often.
