No drooling for Saif Ali Khan’s Chef

The Bollywood adaptation of the Hollywood film Chef has all the ingredients of a successful romcom! But it fails because it seems all plastic and lifeless in spite of the verdant Kerala, Padma Priya in a modern makeover (she looked good :)), Saif Ali Khan and foodporn

Everything about Chef, starting with the RoshanK’s (Saif Ali Khan) fight with the critical customer, his rage, frustration, his Skype hour with his son, the father- son bonding.. the sarcasm of the Malayalee househelps, the impromptu song and dance from lungi wearing singer Raghu Dixit to discovering the Rotizza ( roti +pizza), the final chase, the refurbished blue double decker…

Even our ever so hot Milind Soman in a white Mundu didn’t make an impact (the man doesn’t know how to carry a mundu elegantly, he looked like a dhothi wrapped around a stick)

.. the staccato dialogue…

You get it, I hope? No wonder it never ran for long after a very promising trailer. I had to rewind it thrice over as I fell as sleep each time I tried to watch it .. but I was curious to know how the transformation occurred, so I did stay awake to …

Verdict: Can give it a miss! A better time well spent would be to re-watch Jon Favreau carving out that portion of meat, and making that cheesy overload sandwich .. oooooooo! Yum.

No such drool worthy moments here with Saif! (Disappointed)
