Can Saif Ali Khan Take On Blade Runner?

Can Saif Ali Khan Take On Blade Runner?

Saif Ali Khan is all set to present his second release of this year - Chef.

It is based on a Hollywood film of the same name starring Jon Favreau, Sofía Vergara, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downey Jr. He gets fired, and returns to India to spend time with his young son and his ex-wife.

Aarakshan is but a blip in his filmography, populated by iconic films such as Omkara, Dil Chahta Hai and Ek Hasina Thi; but it is a gentle reminder of what Saif Ali Khan brings to the table as an actor. Interestingly, David Dhawan's directorial venture has done wonderful business and is moving towards Rs 100 crore mark. The movie is going with 85 percent occupancy on Day 1. Chef's content is good and people have actually liked it, but the film has received a poor opening of around 10% in the morning shows. While other Bollywood releases scheduled for October 6, namely Julie 2 and Aksar 2 have already scampered to a safer place, Raja Krishna Menon's Chef, featuring Saif Ali Khan as a chef trying to piece together his broken life, stays stubbornly in place on October 6. His crisp, urbane diction gives way to a measured delivery that feels like it has been worked hard upon - as you'd expect from someone who is saddled with the short end of the straw in caste society.

However, regardless of what critics say, Indian viewers are known to have favoured movies on wholly different barometer.

"Judwaa 2" is expected to dominate the box office this weekend but with positive reviews for "Chef", there's a chance the film may pick up also.
