Chef - Top Reviews

In a premise begging for food porn, there’s a shocking scarcity of sensory pleasure or vision. You’ll see more gastronomic delights in the two-minute trailer of the original Chef than in this entire movie

I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five.

Saif Ali Khan's Film Is Flavourless And Forgettable
Raja Sen, NDTV
This Saif Ali Khan starrer is a good-looking film, with good-looking people
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
And here's a semi-delightful film which serves comfort food to film buffs.
Mohar Basu, Mid-Day
A remake of Jon Favreau's film by the same name, this film is more of a kitchen disaster than a chef's signature dish. Unappetising!

Well, though, Chef is predictable in parts, the journey is an enjoyable one. Choose what you wish to eat while watching it. Popcorn or some of that delicious pasta which Roshan K whips up in a jiffy.

Raja Menon’s overstuffed but enjoyable remake of the Hollywood movie has likeable characters and warm performances.

Saif Ali Khan’s 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.

In the nutshell, Raja Krishna Menon's ‘Chef’ demands some more tadka.

Overall, Chef is a feel-good film about the importance of relationships and the message comes across smoothly albeit garbed in a long-drawn plot.
