Did You Know?


A scene in Goa where Roshan (Saif Ali Khan) mentions of how he came to Goa 20 years back with 2 friends, met a white girl, was robbed and left high and dry is a reference to the 2001 movie Dil Chahta Hain which he has starred in alongside Aamir Khan and Akshaye Khanna. See more »

Mediocre remake of a far Superior movie
16 November 2017 | by dhiraj-teluguSee all my reviews

Chef is a remake of Jon Favreau's Chef (2014), I had seen the movie and have loved it, For its simplicity and great coming of age story where food was one of the characters. The remake Chef of Saif Ali Khan is mediocre, The movie is not engaging its takes a lot of time to get the audience invested in the main character which to me sounded and behaved like an asshole at the beginning of the movie. The journey of the main lead of self discovery is forced and get your attention right at the last 30 minutes of the movie. The movie has been beautifully shot and some of the visuals are stunning. Milind Soman/Dhanish Karthik and Padmapriya are excellent. Svar Kamble is fine as Saif Ali Khan kid, Being portrayed as a school going kid should have much shorter hair. Over all its a Mediocre remake of a far Superior movie
