Movie Info

Chef is the story of Roshan Kalra (Saif Ali Khan), a celebrated Michelin star Chef at an Indian restaurant, called Galli, in New York. In his desperate attempt to continuously please his customers and live up to his fame, Roshan loses his mojo and with that, both his personal and professional life fall apart. The film opens when circumstances lead Roshan to India, to meet his 11-year-old son, Armaan and wife, Radha Menon. Things take a dramatic turn when Roshan is forced to rethink his life, consequently leading to him launching a food truck by the name of 'Raasta Café'. Taking to the road, Roshan goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen and his zest for life, family and love. Chef encapsulates a journey of exploration of Indian cities, a variety of food and different cultures, as Roshan and Armaan travel across the country in the food truck. As the two relive old memories on their journey from Kochi to Goa and then Delhi, they create many new ones, strengthening their bond. In a second coming-of-age, Roshan grows to realize that re-prioritizing the things that are important in his life, is the key to finding happiness again!

Critic Reviews for Chef

All Critics (7)

The dynamics of modern-day, urban associations are well-observed. It's the uneven, jagged and lazy tone of the film that lets it down badly.

This one's not an explosion of gastronomy but it is a slow and flavoured broth of genuine emotions.

But most importantly, the film is an emotional journey that ties up all the loose ends between fathers and sons, whose ideologies may differ but who still share a deep bond that is impossible to shake off.

October 19, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Chef offers moments of brilliance which, if weaved in a more organised manner, may have given us a light, affable film. But a lazy and rather uninterested narrative takes away the pleasure.

The heavy lifting is left to Saif Ali Khan, and he is in top form.

October 6, 2017 | Full Review…

The Hindi Chef is as one-toned and as predictable as the original. For a film that purports to be about food, there is little more than a passing interest demonstrated.
