If food is what you desire, you are in for a treat (virtually). If it’s for Saif Ali Khan, you are going to drool over. If a good easy-going is what you are looking for, you will love this film.

Raja Krishna Menon blends it well, the desi-local-warm touch to the original, the easy-going narration, the calming locales, altogether on a platter of mouth-watering cuisines.
The best part about the movie, nothing seems wooden or forced upon.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
An official adaption from Jon Favreau’s movie with the same name, the Bollywood version by Ritesh Shah, Raja Krishna Menon & Suresh Nair is casted into molds that will quench Indian appetite. Not seen the original, you should go watch this one. Seen the primary, you should see it for all the good changes this one brings.
The molds of emotion, bonding, food, locales, and relatability. Not only the etching out of roles contribute to all of that, but it’s the dialogues too.
The first half is like appetizers: lot of crisp and pace to stimulate the audiences. The latter half is the main course, equally yummy and interesting but could have been chopped a bit.
Whilst entertaining, the film also delivers few life lessons here and there, Also, it made 3 things very clear: Sensuality isn’t linked to petite clothing, simplicity adds a relatable texture to a film, and all films don’t have to be melodramatic.
Saif Ali Khan – he is back. Though for us, Phantom was a good film and Saif suited the role, but it wasn’t the case with everybody. So, he is back, the Saif you all were missing, the Saif with well-timed witty and sarcastic one-liners, classy cool look, and as a Chef. He makes us adore him for his act and hungry for all the good stuff he cooked/ate.
Svar Kamble, simple, innocent and genuine performance by this impressive young boy.
Padmapriya Janakiraman, one word for her would be oomph! She is so natural in her act. It is like impossible to lay your eyes from her effortless act and sensuality. And who said hotness is defined as less clothing, it is more of a body language.
Chandan Roy Sanyal as Saif’s sous chef is fun and quirky. Dinesh P Nair as food truck driver is another fun and surprising role in the film. Milind Soman, dashing and convincing in his role. Sobhita Dhulipala is good in her role too and totally makes her presence felt.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Music and score are breezy and fun like the film. Shugal Laga Le is such a happy number, it makes you fall in love with life.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Love, family, food, this one is such a homely film. It makes you value moments and long for food. Do go watch it!
