Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Chef’ Movie Review. Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan’s delectable drama, Chef, is a relief on several fronts. An official Hindi remake of Jon Favreau’s 2014 film by the same name, Director Raja Krishna Menon’s ‘Chef‘ is a breezy film, centring around the self-discovery of Chef Roshan Kalra this role played by Saif Ali Khan, a Michelin three star chef. Roshan, who hails from a middle class Chandni Chowk family, is attracted towards cooking from the age of ten and aspires to learn cooking from the ‘chole bhature wala chacha’ in his neighbourhood and become a chef much to the chagrin of his father who wants him to become an engineer.How after losing his job at a renowned restaurant in the US, Roshan returns to Cochin to meet his son Armaan (Svar Kamble) who lives with his ex-wife Radha (Padampriya Janakiraman) and realises his priorities and centres his career as a chef around them, is actually the rasion d’etre of the film.The film dives straight into his present life as a chef in the US and merely skims through his early life, including his failed marriage and divorce, without really delving too much into it. While the first half has a wee bit of emotional drama, the second half is clearly a series of road trips showcasing his new found meaning in life as a chef and how he makes a success of it. In the movie some interesting twists and the narrative flows on an even keel.Saif as Chef Roshan Kalra is endearing. He portrays the character in his inimitable style with his attitude and swag to boot. He tries earnestly to look and behave like a chef when in the kitchen. Save some attempts at chopping, or perhaps frying, one does not really get a peek into his cooking skills. His relationship with his son Armaan aka Ari is easily one of the highlights of the film.The music by Raghu Dixit and Amaal Malik is melodious and meshes well with the narrative. “Tere Mere” by Armaan Malik is particularly pleasant.Overall, Chef is a feel-good film about the importance of relationships and the message comes across smoothly albeit garbed in a long-drawn plot.On the work front, Saif Ali Khan is playing an important role in Gaurav K Chawla directed film Baazaar produced by KYTA Production and EMMAY Entertainment.
