The film is set in the late 1980s and early '90s, during the time of Indian intervention in the Sri Lankan civil war and assassination of former Indian prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. See more »
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 »
Madras Cafe is a wonderful representation of Sri Lankan civil war from the viewpoint of India. Critics state that it fails to capture the emotional aspect of the war but it was never meant to be viewed from the Lankan point of view.
It is a non Bollywoodish movie where we find no songs, dancing etc. There is no stupid romantic crap in the movie which other Indian political movies show. Relationship of John and Nargis is strictly professional(the way it should be).
One of the best Indian movies of the year after probably D Day and Ranjhaana. WATCH IT PEOPLE!!!
