Storyline

An Indian Intelligence agent (portrayed by John Abraham)[9] journeys into a war torn coastal island, to break a resolute rebel group. He deftly maneuvers his resources to make significant breakthroughs, amidst a scenario where the enemy has no face and the only counsel is 'Don't get caught.' At various junctions, he meets a charismatic and passionate journalist (portrayed by Nargis Fakhri) who is following her will to reflect the truth behind the civil war. The story unfolds as their quest for the truth reveals a deeper conspiracy, by a faceless enemy, united to seize a common nemesis - India. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie , Jaffna was depicted as having mountains and lush green paddy fields and such. In reality this is totally wrong. Jaffna belongs to dry zone of Sri Lanka and has no mountains lush green paddy fields, It is nothing but dry flatland with "Thal" trees. Utterly fake portrayal. See more »

John and Shoojit team is much better than Ajay and Rohit Shetty.No fake actions no stupid jokes
24 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Madras Cafe is not only one of the best releases but the only best release in this recent time. John is no more expression less actor.HE worked extremely hard in his recent projects and proved him.And he is at his best in Madras Cafe. Talking about Nargis her accent is good but should have done hard work on her acting skills. Thank God no Lungi dance at the end but a beautiful song called Maula sun mere. And then the Assassination. As we all know the end but it keeps us on the edge of our seat till the last scene Credits to Shoojit Sircar. Very realistic,great performances by everyone and great direction. They killed him .We lost him for no mistake.He was so young. This touches everyone Hearts......
