Nirmal Kumar: The Hawk swooped on the prey and carried it away... Story sounds believable, but you don't like to hear it... The prey then attacked the hawk. Sounds unbelievable, but is so pleasing to hear.

Realistic movie - go and watch it
24 July 2016 | by psagirajuSee all my reviews

Madari is a realistic movie which shows what's going on in the current society. I don't know why critics are reviewing this movie based on visuals, commercial elements or weekend collections.

Corruption became part of the life in India. I hope people will realize what we are losing exactly by not taking this as a serious issue. Forget about outside enemies or extremists - We have to act fast to keep our country safe from this dangerous enemy within. Wake up and fight this gangrene. It's now or never...

As usual Irfan portrays common-man character with ease. Kid Vishesh and Tushar also performed well.

My rating is 9/10. Go and watch it!
