Chef Ali Khan….

Saif Ali Khan desperately needs a hit. And going  by the look of, Chefhis new film, an adaptation  of Jon Favreau’s film of  the same  name, is likely to do the trick.

Chef looks like a clean direct  address to the heart . The trailer makes no effort to hide the the fact that it is  father-son reunion drama recounted against a  culinary background and set mostly in the lush greenery  of  Kerala.

Director Raja Krishna Menon whose last film Airlift  told a real-life humane story set in violence-torn Kuwait in 1990, reveals  how Saifdug into his own psyche as a father to  play one in Chef. “We had  lengthy conversations on how Saif  became  a  father at a very young age. He was too young to understand ,appreciate or enjoy fatherhood with Sara and Ebrahim. But with the  birth of Taimur Saif got another chance to understand fatherhood.”

According to Raja, Taimur has helped Saif grow closer to Sara and Ebrahim. “I think Saif’s understanding of his relationship with Sara and Ebrahim has definitely helped explore his relationship with his screen son in Chef.”

Saif’s son in Chef is played by a  bright newcomer Svar Kamble.

Says  Raja, “I think it’s been a while since we’ve seen  a  father-son relationship in Hindi cinema. I think Masoom was the last film where the father-son bond  left an impact and that was  and that was 21 years ago.”
