“Saif’s Careers Best In Heartwarming Culinary Drama Chef” – A Subhash K Jha Review


Starring Saif Ali Khan, Padmapriya Janakiraman, Svar Kamble

Directed by Raja Krishna Menon

There is a lot of teasing between the father and son, played with endearing casualness by Saif Ali Khan and Svar Kamble. Aptly, Chef teases our appetite for cinema. It’s a culinary delight—warm, tender, inviting and appetizing– served up in a dainty dish with a dash of debonair but played-down posturing, like a masterchef who is shy to show off his skills but can’t help it. He’s so adept at what he does.

Chef conveys the kind of sagacious skill born not out of arrogance but wisdom sometimes misplaced. Like the protagonist Roshan Kalra’s traditionalist father who believes the kitchen is for women.

Speaking of which—arrogance more than wisdom—Saif Ali Khan’s Roshan Kalra (from Chandni Chowk Delhi married to and divorced from the lovely Malayali danseuse Radha Menon

"Watching Striker on YouTube with people from all over the world was an incredible experience!"

It all began when a few Bollywood-loving writers and friends heard that Studio 18 and YouTube had come together to release Striker on the Internet the same day as the release in India.

Organized by Beth Watkins with help from Sujoy Singha, the watchalong soon grew from the 4 of us to over 25 people in 9 countries including the Us, UK, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Australia, and Abu Dhabi.

"The Striker cast met expectations and even went beyond" - Chandan Arora

He belongs to a new breed of makers for whom cinema is not just merely film making, but instead a process in which you get absolutely involved in the subject matter. Making a film for them is more than just organising a film and executing it, but instead believing 110% in what they're bringing to life on screen. Perhaps that is why although he's only 2 films old, Chandan Arora has somewhat a name for himself already amongst the audiences and more importantly his peers. This February, after a lot of struggle and trouble, the highly talented director is all set to release his third directorial venture which he has also produced. The film stars Siddharth (Rang De Basanti), Aditya Pancholi (Yes Boss), Ankur Vikal (Slumdog Millionaire), Nicolette Bird (Rock On!!) and Southern actress Padmapriya. Promos have made everyone more and more intrigued about this project, so Chandan put all the queries

Vidya Malvade is Striking

Vidya Malvade makes a striking addition to the cast of Siddharth’s Striker, along with Padmapriya and Nicolette Bird. She’s full of praise for her co-stars, in particular model Nicolette. “Nicolette is a very beautiful girl and is a nice actress too,” she says, “She plays an important role in the film. In the movie she looks like a pristine goddess from heaven.”

Vidya is slowly coming to terms with the fact that everyone confuses her with Vidya Balan, but she nearly blew her top on the set of the movie when a delivery boy refused to give here a bouquet sent to her by her husband, insisting they were for Vidya Balan. After that, it became a running joke for the cast who kept instructing new delivery boys to refer to her as Miss Balan.

Vidya is developing a bit of a reputation as a sports and games enthusiast.

Padmapriya is All-a-Flutter

Kollywood actress Padmapriya says she is feeling butterflies in her stomach as she waits for the release of her Bollywood movie Striker next week. The movie also marks the return to the screen of Siddharth. She admits, however, that she enjoyed the experience of making the movie. "I am contented about playing the role,” she confirms, “We worked from 2:00 in the afternoon to 4:00 am the next day. It was a great experience."

The actress has no plans, however, to up sticks and move north, preferring instead the variety and flexibility offered by the south‘s movie industries. “After essaying the challenging role of a tribal warrior in the period saga Pazhazzi Raja, I am excited about my Tamil film Irumbu Kottai Murattu Singam and the Kannada film Thamasu,” she says.

Her flexibility will certainly be put to the test in the comedy western Irumbu Kottai Murattu Singam in which she plays a cowgirl.

Shahrukh Khan in Mammootty Movie

The most expensive Mollywood movie ever made, the historical epic Pazhassi Raja has been the big Diwali hit in Kerala and elsewhere this weekend, with over 500 prints produced. Starring Mammootty in the title role, the film tells the tragic tale of the epic rebellion of Pazhassi Raja, an early king of Kerala at the end of the 18th century, who led an army of Nairs and Kurichiyas, armed with little more than swords and bows and arrows, who fought the British to a standstill for more than ten years in the forests of the south. The movie has been compared to recent Chinese-made epics such as Hero or Red Cliff. The film opens with a narration from Shahrukh Khan in the Hindi version, which the great man provided for free as he comes from a family of freedom fighters and wanted to support the project.

Siddharth Starrer Striker In Post Production

We've been hearing about this project since 2008 however after much anticipation nothing came of it. Now Siddharth starrer Striker is back in the news and hopefully won't go away from headlines until release.

Rumour has it that the reason for the much delay of the project has been issues with distribution of the film. Originally given to Studio 18 for distribution however for some reason or another Siddharth was not happy with this decision. And so came to the rescue Rdb co-star Aamir Khan who helped the makers and Studio 18 strike a deal convenient to both.

Speaking to Mid-Day director Chandan Arora confirmed, "We are currently in the post-production stage. Studio 18 is the distributor of our movie."

Striker stars alongside Siddharth southern belle Padma Priya and inspired by a true life story. Siddharth plays a carrom player from a ghetto in Bombay and the setting is the mid 80's.
