The trailer of Madras Cafe begins with a music that resounds with spookiness of tragedy. The calamitous air introduces this political thriller that from frame one is hard to not immerse yourself ill. Shoojit Sircar with Vicky Donor elaborated his prowess, and with Madras Cafe he is all set to experiment a paradigm shift. The film’s political thriller premise has lead actor John Abraham playing an undercover officer in Jaffna. Dealing with the volatile socio-political of Sri Lanka, the film must have required volumes of research in its conception as well as scripting stage!
Nargis Fakhri plays the international journalist with conviction! Blunt in her words and fearless in her manner, she exclaims in a scene that criticizing national policies doesn’t make her anti-national. To quote the gist of a popular Japanese classic Rashomon, truth isn’t singular but pluralistic with its zest differing as per perceptions and values.
Created on the background of Civil War with guerrilla forces descending, the pulsating factor here is engaging. With declaration of Code Red, the calamity factor multiples and the trailer could only make you want to watch the film even more.
Slated for a release on 23rd August, Madras Cafe will unravel the mysteries of a troubled story that remains marginalized, ostracized and untold!
