Chef stars Saif Ali Khan as a divorced chef Roshan Kalra. Padmapriya Janakiraman, Dhanish Karthik, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Neha Saxen also form the cast of the film. Chef is a remake of Jon Favreau's 2014 Hollywood film of the same name.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Raja Sen gave Saif's Chef 2 stars. "Chef is a nothing film. It holds no secret sauce of its own, but perhaps we shouldn't be that surprised. There is only that much you can do with a reheated film. Khan isn't bad in the film, and, while watching him in his kitchen whites yelling furiously at his staff appears too unrealistic - it all looks very Marco Pierre White-Privilege - the actor has learnt how to handle a knife," he wrote.
Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan's Judwaa 2, which released two Fridays ago, stands 'rocksteady' at the box office and has so far earned over Rs 119 crore.
