After a dramatic Rangoon, Saif Ali Khan is back on the screen with Chef. The actor who has already played a chef in Salaam Namaste will now again step into the shoes to recreate the 2014-film of the same name.
While the original Hollywood film was directed by Jon Favreau, the Bollywood remake has been helmed by the Airlift director Raja Krishna Menon
Saif plays Roshan Kalra, a professional chef who’s so busy with his career that all his personal relationships have gone for a toss.
His wife Radha, played by Padmapriya, constantly urges him to spend time with their only son. In an attempt to reconnect with his family, Roshan goes around the city, it is here where the fun times begin, eating at joints in different places, a visit to the Golden Temple in Amritsar and more.
The son seems to be less aware of north Indian culture and food habits which is clear from the scene in which the father-son duo are eating a rice meal on a banana leaf and then the father mentions chole bhature, after which the son asks ‘What is chole bhature’?
Soon, the chef realises that he needs to contribute more than just money to his son. So apart from loving his profession, he decides to be in love with life and son. Then he fixes an old bus to make it more like a restaurant on wheels.
Saif is at his charming best in the 3-minute-long trailer, Padmapriya, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Svar Kamble look promising.
Does the move of a restaurant on wheels help to strengthen the bond between the father and son? The audience can find out when it will be served hot on October 6.
