Actress Deepika Padukone has lauded her Piku co-star Irrfan Khan’s film Madaari, hailing it as a movie which will “stir” people emotionally. The thriller-drama talks about taking a stand and shouldering responsibility, while it also showcases the bond between a father and son.
The Bajirao Mastani actress, who starred opposite Irrfan in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku last year, said Madaari will get the viewers thinking.
“It’s outstanding. I think it’s one of those films that’s going to stay with us for a very very long time and going to get all of us thinking, and it’s going to stir you up emotionally,” Deepika said in a statement.
Earlier, Bollywood heartthrob Ranveer Singh, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film ‘Befikre’, had also praised Irrfan Khan starrer-Madaari and described the latter as an “enigmatic genius”.
Ranveer, 31, tweeted, “Radical stuff! An emotional thrill-ride that’ll shake you up & wake you up! Nishikant Kamat comes out all guns blazing in this one! #Madaari.”
He added, “How he does it…time after time…we will never know…I salute the Enigmatic Genius that is @irrfan_k #Madaari.”
Among other celebrities who have lauded the film included Bhumi Pednekar, actor Rajkummar Rao, Tisca Chopra, Imtiaz Ali and actress Zareen Khan.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also lauded internationally acclaimed Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan’s latest film Madaari. Kejriwal watched “Madaari” on Friday, and has urged everyone to see the film.
“Irrfan Khan ‘Madaari’…Amazing movie. Everyone must watch it,” Kejriwal tweeted on Saturday night.
Irrfan earlier had a candid chat with Kejriwal as part of promotional activity for Madaari. The thriller sees Irrfan and director Nishikant Kamat team up again after the award-winning Mumbai Meri Jaan.
While the film is about taking a stand and shouldering responsibility, it also showcases the bond between a father and son. “Madaari” also stars Jimmy Sheirgill, Vishesh Bansal, Tushar Dalvi, Nitish Pandey and Ayesha Raza.
Irrfan Khan starrer Madaari earned Rs 4.45 crore worldwide on its opening day, according to its makers. The film collected Rs 3.25 crore in India and Rs 1.2 crore overseas, said a statement from the representative of the movie, as reported by IANS.
The thriller, which sees Irrfan and director Nishikant Kamat team up again after the award-winning Mumbai Meri Jaan, has been lauded by the film fraternity too. While the film is about taking a stand and shouldering responsibility, it also showcases the bond between a father and son.
Madaari presents Irrfan in a role that he aces with such ease that it’s hard to see he’s ‘acting’. But he’s placed at the centre of a film which is so patchy and contrived that even he cannot rescue it, The Indian Express reviewer Shubhra Gupta mentioned in her review of the film.
“The idea has power. The execution has very little,” she said on the storyline of the film.
The 49-year-old actor had interviewed politicians like the Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal and RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav for the promotion of this film. He also wanted to interview Prime Minister Narendra Modi, however, the actor did not receive any appointment yet.
“In the film Madaari Irrfan Khan plays a man who is fighting for his family. However, even in reality the actor is interested in understanding how the whole ‘system’ actually works and analyse the particular problems we citizens face and what are the steps these people take, so that is why the actor is personally meeting the politicians to widen his knowledge about the complete system,” a source close to the actor told The Indian Express.
But the box office collections are not really the actor’s main concern. “My intention is to entertain the audience through a film. I never think about 100 crores, 200 crore clubs,” he said in an exclusive conversation with Jagdeesh Chandra.
Madaari also stars Jimmy Sheirgill, Vishesh Bansal, Tushar Dalvi, Nitish Pandey and Ayesha Raza.
