A common man's plight against the system.....
20 September 2016 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

"Madaari" presents the anger of a common man against the system. Every year thousands of civilians fall prey to the negligence of the system and government remains reluctant to provide any support in such circumstances. The plot revolves around one of such common persons whose son is killed in the collapse of a fly-over road of a city. He wants to talk some of the officials who are guilty for the collapse of the structure. For the purpose, he helds captive an eight year old son of the home minister and starts to play a game to provoke the corrupt system.

In terms of story, the film is close to the thriller "A Wednesday" (2008). Where the motive of "A Wednesday" remains unclear till the very end of the movie, "Madaari" becomes a bit obvious by the interval. The element of surprise in the former film is missing in this one. Besides, the film also becomes overlong; and the climax lacks the effect. Despite the flaws, the film remains commendable for a terrific performance from Irfan Khan. The tactics played by him as a kidnapper are interesting and flashbacks shown enliven the father son relationship. The flashbacks and the relationship between irfan Khan and 8 year old boy as an abductee are cleverly portrayed which will hold your attention to an extent. Though the subject has been sensitively carried through out, just in the end the film doesn't suffice the prominent issues it raises.

Rating: 2 stars out of 4
