    Kamat’s execution falters a bit though. He tries too hard to be ambiguous at times, when a simple storytelling could have been as effective. However, overall, his intent deserves an applause as Madaari shames the trend of rising apathy that is often misconstrued as resilience.

    There are certain moments in the first half of Madaari that are both powerful and subtle. Even though the second half barely manages to scrape through, this film on the broad and capable shoulders of Irrfan Khan manages to deliver the right punch. This Madaari will have your dormant nationalism and parental emotions dancing out with thundering effect. The message here is loud and clear.

    ‘Madaari’ is an absolute treat both for cine-goers and every citizen of India, who is concerned about his country.

  • Madaari was engaging and touched upon some deep subjects such as corruption, the power of social media and public opinion, with alacrity.

  • It was quite apparent from the trailer that Madaari is quite predictable. But one does wait for an interesting twist to the tale. Mercifully, Kamat does try hard to tie the loose end. And he does manage to give a rather interesting climax but what has unfolded before he arrives to that conclusion is neither convincing nor engaging.

    Irrfan Khan fans will go for Madaari regardless, but for the rest, it is a run-of-the-mill popcorn thriller, nothing more unfortunately.
