“Madaari” is an eye opening film. It’s about a man named Nirmal (Irrfan Khan) who loses his son in a bridge collapse, that is responsible by the politicians. Nirmal decides to take matters in his own hands and kidnaps the home-ministers son to take revenge and all the measures he takes to bring out the truth about politics in India.
Good story, though the screenplay could be better. The 1st half was excellent. It was thrilling. We wouldn’t know the main point of the story until midway, and I got really intrigued to know what was going to happen next. The 2nd half did drag a lot, and did kind of lose its plot in between, but then it led it to a shocking climax, where we see the truth about politics, and all the revelations made by the politicians, which is quite sad.
Irrfan Khan as usual was brilliant. His pain, trauma and his determination was conveyed very well through his acting. Vishesh Bansal as the home-minister’s son Rohan, shines. Jimmy Shergill, though in a small role, added more package.
The movie had 2 songs:- “Masoom Sa” and “Dama Dama Dam”, both these songs are very apt to the story.
Overall, “Madaari” may have some flaws but then again it keeps you engaged, and lets you see things in a different light!
My Rating:- 3/5
