Saif Ali Khan's 'Chef' is a beautiful presentation of a father-son relationship while exploring the various delicacies of life. The well-written plot with the light approach was messed up during the journey. Many enchanting moments were beautifully captured, shared by the lead actors, Saif Ali Khan and Svar Kamble.

This Raja Krishna Menon directorial is the adaptation of Jon Favreau's 2014 hit flick which won many hearts while offering the foodies some delightful visuals of the exotic flavours. Though, this Hindi transformation has failed to recreate the magic for Indian audiences in the rather bland film.

Without a doubt, Saif has done justice to the film and played the role with his full potential but the screenplay failed him. The audience who are expecting a full course might be left famished with the last night's leftover served in a captivating manner.

Saif Ali Khan's Roshan Kalra is the passionate chef who has fought all the adversities of life for living his dream, including his own father, who is against the idea of men stepping into the kitchen. The skilled chef fails as a family man and gets separated from his dancer wife Radha Menon due to his arrogance.

Later, upon getting fired from his high-end job in New York, Kalra is called back home by his son Armaan who helps him in realising his passion. Once back to India, the protagonist is on a journey of discovering himself with the help of his ex-wife and her friend who help him in organising a food truck.

Instead of setting the cafe at a single location, he travels while tasting the delicacies of life along with his teenage son. Those road trips soon turn into a journey of bonding and exploring friendship. Milind Soman is beguiling as usual and adds the much-needed humour to the film.

All in all, the film can be watched once but lacks the anticipated flavours which the typical Indian audience would be willing to watch.
