Chef English Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

There’s not a lot by way of story in Iron Man director Jon Favreau’s ‘Chef’, but this is nonetheless a pleasant comedy that’ll have you drooling into your popcorn, then rushing to the nearest eatery as you leave the cinema.I’m going with three out of five for ‘Chef’. It’s simple, but like good cooking, there’s love gone into it.

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Gavin Rasquinha Site: Times Of India (TOI)

If you’re passionate about food, this movie, replete with its food imagery, will whet your appetite for all things epicurean. But apart from that, this is a simple story that is simply told, with various food analogies, of a man who breaks a monotonous cycle and follows his instincts. Pleasing yet somewhat predictable, this film marks a sharp departure from Favreau’s various blockbuster (*Iron Man*) films into something far simpler. Johansson, however, is somewhat under-used but on the whole, the story is paced nicely. With food remaining the biggest star of this show, the side dishes also include some family-bonding as well. And the result is a serving of something refreshingly original.

Chef whips up a satisfactorily captivating, and often funny, tale of self-discovery. And who doesn’t love a good road movie. Foodies and food porn addicts, you can be rest assured — without giving anything away — there is no dearth of mouth-watering treats upon which you can feast their eyes. Chef is palatable feel-good fare whose recipe has smatterings of moving performances and dashes of rib-tickling humour.

A fun and unconventional movie about a chef, his life, the people he loves and his dream to cook from the heart. Jon Favreau makes you forget about the world and inhabit this lovely concoction where you will drool while watching food being prepared. It is an exploration of what it means to be happy and the risks we have to take in order to truly be great. Catch Chef and enjoy this heartwarming tale of food, passion, family and humor.

Writer-director Jon Favreau`s indie film `Chef` is a light hearted film that revolves around the life of a chef, who is passionate about his culinary art. The narration also interlaces the chef`s personal relationships and educates viewers about the impact of the social media marketing in the current scenario. Overall, `Chef` is a well made film that is thoroughly enjoyable yet cloyingly formulaic in its presentation.

  1. my review of CHEF:
    Taste life like the best dish on menu! Sweat, simple and delicious! [3.5/5]

    You don’t really have to be a cook yourself to like Jon Favreau’s tasteful slice-of-life drama CHEF, but if you are a life-lover you hardly can stop yourself from falling in love with it. Alike every nicely-cooked & well-presented dish in any of your favorite restaurant, life requires nothing but a demanding preparation, monumental effort and a good heart to top it all. CHEF takes its inspiration from the very same idea and turns out to be a deliciously sweat, simple and delightful film that has its heart right in the place.

    Coming from the director of highly technological, imaginative and illusory IRON MAN & IRON MAN 2, comedy-drama CHEF emerges as a surprising but an appetite-full creation of Jon Favreau. Besides being the writer-director, he plays Carl Casper- a passionate chef trapped in a commercial restaurant run by the money-driven, dominating and unreasonable Riva, played by Dustin Hoffman. Life takes a drastic turn when Carl gets bashed up from left, right and center by a reputed food critic for not being innovative and imaginative in his servings. This is the time when his personal life too is on the edge. He should spare some of his life-chunks for his 10-year old son living with his divorced wife and in the meantime, also be looking for what he misses the most i.e. cooking what he likes to.

    CHEF tempts you not only with the luscious, lip-smacking dishes of all kinds being grilled, baked, chopped, basted, fried and served artistically in the most enticing manner; in fact there is hardly any scene where the food is not being celebrated; but also with the heartfelt emotions in a simple yet relatable plot of human relationships. The sentiment of not being permitted to experiment and innovate for what you think is right and often surrendering yourself in the name of what your employer thinks is right, is never an extraterrestrial for any man of creative values. Chasing your dreams and following your heart may not be possible for everyone but when you see Carl getting on to it, you never feel isolated from the sense of achievement and contentment Carl is gaining gradually on screen.

    Film also succeeds in throwing pleasant surprises on regular intervals with the most delectable short & sweet star appearances in recent. Scarlett Johansson woos the screen as Carl’s colleague at the café. Dustin Hoffman as a bossy owner is a luxury to have on board but leaves you unfulfilled wanting more of him. Robert Downey Jr plays a romantically witty more like his Tony Stark in IRON MAN. Russell Peters joins the cast as a selfie-lover cop who can’t stop asking for clicks to upload on social networking sites. Emjay Anthony as his son and Sofia Vergara as his ex-wife come up with endearing performances but CHEF is all about Jon Favreau. As the writer-director, he not only pushes his boundaries but also blesses the screen with a wonderful character lovable in all given situations.

    Though in between courses you might notice something very regular and recurring, at the end it is a sweet, simple and delicious feast you won’t regret booking your table for! Likeability is guaranteed! [3.5/5]
