Movie Review: Madras Cafe: A Bold Debut by John Abraham

Madras Café is a marvelously woven intrinsic and intense movie with a classical touch. This is a debut launch as producer from actor John Abraham and kudos to him for starting in such a challenging and non-orthodox manner. Madras Café has John Abraham in lead role as one of the most efficient agent in Indian Army Intelligence. The movie has been released on 23rd Aug 2013 starring John Abraham, Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanjay Gurbaxani, Sheetal Malhar, Rashi Khanna, Nargis Fakhri and Leena Maria. It has been excellently directed by Shoojit Sircar. Music Director is Shantanu Moitra. The movie belongs to Thriller genre.

This Hindi Political Spy Thriller action packed extremely fast movie revolved around early 1990s depicting civil war in Sri Lanka. Vikram Singh (John Abraham) is deputed on a special and critical mission by Intelligence Agency of India, RAW to go to Sri Lanka on a secret agenda. During his secret mission of making Anna Bhaskaran (Ajay Ratnam), a rebel leader, a powerless entity; lot of eye opening facts are revealed in life of Vikram Singh. Shoojit Sircar doesn't seem to compromise even on the minutest of the scale when he is required to direct a movie. At times the movie appears as a documentary but that is what the story is supposed to go so as to bring some amount of absorption of theme of the movie in its audience.

If you intend to watch this movie for the sake of some dances, easygoing story and lot of music, Madras Café is not meant for you. You will have to be attentive to capture the main storyline. At many places and especially during the last 15-20 minutes, you will have to hold your nerves to catch some of the most intense situations of the story. Overall I would recommend it as a Must Watch.
