• Chef serves up a feast garnished with subtle spices. Its aroma is mild and delicate, but the after-taste lingers on for long. Watch it: Chef is a film that is easy to fall in love with.

  • The only actor who stands out a tad amid the ruins is Rajesh Tailang in the role of Haseena’s defence lawyer Shyam Keswani although he, like everybody else in the cast, is hopelessly trapped in a stilted script. Nothing, therefore, can salvage this insipid biopic from the morass of mediocrity.

  • One is sure that there will be takers for this piece of cinematic tripe, but the audience deserves better. There can be no two ways about that.

  • in trying to squeeze every ounce of hilarity out of its scrappy screenplay, the film goes overboard with its excessive cheeriness and swerves into the realms of inanity. In the bargain, it loses its way completely after delivering a fairly breezy first half.

  • Not always an easy watch – it isn’t meant to be – MOM wields a heavy mallet, but it does so with purpose, precision and panache.

  • It isn’t possible to completely dislike Hindi Medium. So, ignore its hiccups and watch it for the relevance of the questions it poses and the remarkable quality of the acting.
