Verdict : Watch for Irrfan Khan

Madaari’s plot is quite familiar tale of how a common man fights against the corrupted system- the politicians, bureaucrats, administration — that is seen as the cause for every problem facing the nation, be it inflation, unemployment or water crisis. Before the film starts Irrfan Khan’s voiceover saying, “Baaz chuhe pe jhapta, use utha le gaya. Kahaani sacchi lagti hai magar acchi nahi lagti. Baaz pe palatwaar hua, kahaani sacchi nahi lagti magar acchi lagti hai.” It almost sounds like a promise of a gripping social thriller.
 
Story: Film that comes with a tagline Shh Desh So raha hain.. begins with a kidnapping where Khan abducts the home minister’s son to take a unique revenge for his own son’s death. The narrative is all about the cat and mouse game, about how the cops Jimmy Sheirgill  eventually nab the man but not before he has addressed the nation, spoken his mind, all in an effort to try and wake up the sleeping citizens. 
 
What’s not: The film starts well with the scene being set up for a massive hunt for the kidnapped son. Irrfan Khan as Nirmal Kumar’s preparations, especially the technical set-up to ensure he isn’t tracked down, will make you think of Neeraj Pandey’s national award-winning film A Wednesday (2008). The problem is the pace of the movie, at which writer Ritesh Shah tells the story. Sometimes it was becoming too sluggish that it was little hard to believe that the hunting is going on for a Home minister’s son. While the narrative is too slow then there was also less depth in the characterizations. 
 
What’s Hot: However, film isn’t a complete disappointment. It has its moments because of the ever-reliable Irrfan Khan as its pivot and spine. It’s just the sheer strength of Khan’s performance that takes you along from one scene to the next. Be it how he tackles the intelligent kid Rohan (Vishesh Bansal) he has kidnapped, for whom he becomes a surrogate father of sorts and vice versa. On the other hand, how he expresses the depth of his pain at the unfathomable loss of his own son in a civic tragedy. In some moments, it is difficult to hold back your tears.
 
You might be wondering about his disappeared wife or her side of the story but there is  heart tugging and subtly poignant moments in seeing the single father bring up a child in the many scenes from Nirmal’s past. It’s in these emotional instances, when the film becomes the story of a father and a son, that it involves you, makes you invest in it.
 
There are sparks of brilliance: The song Masoom Sa, sung by Sukhwinder Singh and composed by Sunny Inder-Bawra, adds to the pathos when played in the background.
 
Over all Madaari plot had the power to be a gripping thriller unfortunately which was not executed rightly.

 
“Madari was scheduled for a September-end-release, but now there’s a push for an earlier date — June already has a lot of big films, so it will most probably be sometime next week. They want to make the most of Irrfan’s winning streak. Irrfan is being kept in the loop and agrees with the decision,” our source reveals.
