Irrfan Khan

The film stars Irrfan Khan in a negative role. after giving outstanding performances in films like ‘Piku’ and ‘Talvar’, Irrfan Khan’s this film is the much anticipated. The actor is already known for playing characters that stand out the rest and the past has been evident for the same. Also he has rarely dones films wherein he has played the bad guy. In ‘Madaari’, he is the bad guy but has a serious past which leads him to becoming the bad guy. The trailers have been evident that Irrfan has given one more stand out performance and this film will again be a hit for him.

Nishikant Kamat

Nishikant Kamat is coming up with his second release this year, the first being ‘Rocky Handsome’ which did not fare well at the Box-office. He has given hits film like ‘Drishyam’, ‘Force’, Mumbai Meri Jaan’ in the past few years which give an account of his skills as a director. Going by the response the trailer has received so far, the director seems to have hit the right spot to add one more hit to his list. Also the film has very intriguing tag line saying, ‘Desh so raha hai’ which makes it clear that the film is also a taken on the political debacles that our country is going through. This all factors should add up to the plus poit of the film.

Stellar supporting cast

The film also stars Jimmy Shergill, Tushar Dalvi, Nitesh Pandey in supporting star cast. Jimmy Shergill is playing a cops role which according to him is best and most intriguing role he has done by far in his career. He is also widely known for his roles as a cop in films like ‘A Wednesday!’, ‘Special 26’. Starring alongside Jimmy is Tushar Dalvi who is playing the role of political leader whose son is abducted by Irrfan. Tushar is a very well known actor of Marathi film industry and also has he starred in many content driven Hindi films. So in all the makers have a very content based star cast which certainly adds up to the positives of the film!


The film ‘Madaari’ is already becoming famous because of its poster. Rajinikanth starred film ‘Kabali’ has the same poster as that of the film ‘Madaari’ which has created ripples in the industry. The Rajinikanth starrer film is due to release on 15th of July which is also the release date for ‘Madaari’. Irrfan Khan has slammed the makers of ‘Kabali; saying that they have copied their movie poster and a lot of drama is currently going on in between the two filmmakers. This certainly has given ‘Madaari’ publicity which the makers might have not thought of initially. But as they say, any publicity is good publicity! This Nishikant Kamat directed film is all set to release on 15th July in theaters near you!
