Madaari is Irrfan Khan and Irrfan Khan is Madaari !
27 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

It's a gem of a movie, largely carried on by Irrfan Khan and an expressive chunk of kid (Vishesh Bansal) & grit of Jimmy Shergill (he is wasted though). The depiction of Father-Son relation is directed beautifully ...u can actually fall for them 

In here Irrfan doesn't try to be the one man army fighting against the system unlike almost all vigilante justice movie, instead he lets the situation, grief and purpose drive the movie with his exceptional acting (among the best v have seen) especially the post- accident hospital sequence is gut wrenching. The dialogues carry punch and tears apart our psyche.

Nishikant Kamath's best direction after Mumbai Meri Jaan, though the movie falls short at some instances but they are well overlapped by Irrfan Khan's brilliance 

If you loved A Wednesday u will admire Madaari

P.S: it is a shame that such movie will hardly gather 10% of what BRAINLESS movies earn this days... no doubt we are living in denial !!!
