HT Cafe - - Front Page - HTC

Di­rec­tor Raja Kr­ishna Menon’s Chef, star­ring Saif Ali Khan, which re­leased yes­ter­day, has im­pressed movie­go­ers across the coun­try. The Hindi adap­ta­tion of Jon Favreau’s 2014 Hol­ly­wood hit is a unique story about Roshan Kalra (Saif), who un­der­takes a jour­ney to find out his true pri­or­i­ties and source of hap­pi­ness.

Chef is a story of food, love, fam­ily and a fa­ther’s re­dis­cov­ery of the fil­ial bond. Per­for­mances by the cast mem­bers — child ac­tor Svar Kam­ble, who plays Saif’s son; Padmapriya; and Milind So­man — have been ap­pre­ci­ated. The film is be­ing hailed as a vis­ual treat for en­cap­su­lat­ing a jour­ney of ex­plo­ration of In­dian cities, a va­ri­ety of food and dif­fer­ent cul­tures.

Talk­ing about its suc­cess, pro­ducer Bhushan Ku­mar says, “Chef is be­ing ap­pre­ci­ated by movie­go­ers and I’m ec­static. It’s a fam­ily film that’ll put a smile on every­one’s face. I am sure the word of mouth will help this film fur­ther.”

Co-pro­ducer Vikram Mal­ho­tra adds, “I’m de­lighted with the re­sponse Chef has re­ceived. The film has been given such a won­der­ful shape for the In­dian au­di­ences by Raja. By trust­ing us with the re­make, Jon Favreau had en­trusted us with a huge re­spon­si­bil­ity. I’m proud that In­dia’s Chef is en­dear­ing and evoca­tive.” Chef, pre­sented by Gul­shan Ku­mar in as­so­ci­a­tion with Abun­dan­tia En­ter­tain­ment, is a Ban­dra West Pic­tures Pro­duc­tion and is di­rected by Raja Kr­ishna Menon. Chef is pro­duced by Bhushan Ku­mar, Kr­is­han Ku­mar, Vikram Mal­ho­tra, Janani Ravichan­dran, and Raja Kr­ishna Menon, and is play­ing in cin­e­mas now.
