MADAARI: 3.5/5

          If a movie has Irrfan Khan in lead role, you are rest assured that you are not going to return back with a disappointed mood. And over that if you have Jimmy Shergill playing a police officer, you know that like all the other movies where he have played the same character, he is again going to keep his performance at least at par. And when such talented actors are directed by Nishikant Kamat, a director who have made many wonderful movies in Hindi and Marathi cinemas, you are just going to pay as many bucks the cinema hall would be asking for. "Madaari", the latest release this weekend, has all these personalities together which compelled me to go to theater to watch it even when I wasn't much impressed with the trailer.  

           "Mumbai Meri Jaan" and "Drishyam" are my personal favorites of the director and "Madaari" have just got added to the list. Though the film has many similarities with "A Wednesday" still it has its own aesthetics which makes you like Madaari for its self chosen path to tell the same type of story. The film is about this kidnapper who have kidnapped Home minister's son because his own son have been killed in a tragedy which is the result of government's corruption. He wants to teach them a lesson and feel what he has been feeling since his son's death. And then the movie shows the kidnapper's past when he is happy with single-parenting his son, his journey with home minister's son, his conversation with the officials etc. 

            The movie is interesting but the biggest problem is its pace. The movie is too slow to keep you glued to the screen. If it would have been less by half an hour then it would have justified itself to be one of the bestial movies of this year. But unfortunately, it is not that terrific but it is surely one of the good movies in the recent times as it has something to say about how government functions. The climax scene says a lot and it's been a delight to watch last 15 minutes. Film is definitely emotional and moving. The dialogues are great. The song "Masoom Sa" is very powerful whenever it plays in background in the voice of Sukhwinder Singh. Background music is very loud. Rest, as I said in the beginning of this review, performances are wonderful. Just little editing and minute improvement in direction could have made Madaari what the audiences was expecting out of it. Still, I give this movie 3.5 stars out of 5. Certainly, one-time watch.
