Rajma Chawal Movie Review: Rishi Kapoor’s Film Is Garnished With Flavours

Rishi Kapoor, Amyra Dastur and Anirudh Tanwar in Rajma Chawal (Image courtesy: Instagram)

Cast: Rishi Kapoor, Amyra Dastur and Anirudh Tanwar

Director: Leena Yadav

Rating: 3 Stars (Out of 5)

Garnished with flavours that range from the mildly pungent to the gently aromatic, Rajma Chawal, a bittersweet father-son drama set in Old Delhi, is instantly appetizing. The crowded, chaotic, colourful location plays a key part in the narrative, serving to reflect the uneasy relationship not only between a sullen young musician and his acerbic dad but also between two generations of Indians, one rooted in the past, the other looking ahead. The principal conflict in the film centres on the struggle within a family – and a locality – to find a meeting point for what has gone and what is at hand.

But no, Leena Yadav’s heartwarming film, released on Netflix, isn’t seeking to paint a big picture of a neighbourhood that is both static and in flux. It offers no startling insights into a milieu that is oft-seen in Hindi cinema nor does it have anything new to reveal about individuals coming to terms with loss, grief and loneliness. What Yadav does, and does well, is keep the narrative simple, light and uncluttered, which makes for consistently enjoyable viewing.

Following the untimely death of his wife, Mathur (Rishi Kapoor) decides to move to Chandni Chowk, where he grew up and where many of his childhood friends still live and work. His son, Kabir (debutant Anirudh Tanwar), has no sentimental connect with the place and is mighty peeved at the disruption caused by the shift. The grieving boy has reason to feel hard done by because, among other things, the abrupt relocation has led to the breakup of his band.



In no mood to forgive his father who, he feels, did not do enough to save his mother, he all but stops talking to him. If face-to-face talk isn’t happening, replace it with Facebook chat, an elderly neighbor suggests to Mathur. He takes a while to warm up to the idea, but agrees to not only play along but also open a fake Facebook account in the guise of pretty young girl, Tara (Amyra Dastur), to get his reticent son to bare his heart. The gamble is, of course, fraught with risk.

It pays off until the point Kabir runs into the real Tara – she is actually Seher, a small-town girl who works in a hair salon – at a nightclub gig. Mathur’s well-laid plan goes for a toss. Seher’s hotheaded boyfriend Baljeet (Aparshakti Khurrana) throws a spanner in the works and Mathur is compelled to come up with Plan B, which entails his paying the cash-strapped girl to keep the ruse going.

The three pivotal characters in Rajma Chawal are all fleeing from a past and grappling with a present that is anything but stable. Mathur’s bereavement has been aggravated by perfidious business partner. Kabir is in distress, having lost both his mother and his comfortable New Delhi home. Seher is on the run from her family in Meerut for reasons that aren’t divulged until near the end of the film.

But while the self-centred older man thinks nothing of clinging to old habits, the two youngsters are determined to move on with their lives. What good are these memories, Kabir asks, when somebody reminds him of the stories of Chandni Chowk that he heard from his mother as a boy. When Kabir, on his part, advises Seher to visit her family for Diwali, she confesses that the doors to her home are shut forever.

Rajma Chawal is occasionally marked by simplistic, broad brushstrokes and the film’s denouement isn’t entirely convincing. It is Yadav’s genteel approach to the material – it is a blend of slice-of-life drama and conventional romantic and emotional tropes – that helps the film strike and sustain a steady rhythm. No overly jarring notes interrupt its flow.

Rishi Kapoor leads the cast with aplomb. He is, as always, effortlessly on the ball. He receives enough support from Amyra Dastur and Anirudh Tanwar to be able to turn this agreeable tale into an engaging portrait of a social media tyro negotiating the challenges thrown at him by a rapidly changing social and digital environment. At no point does Tanwar look unsure of his screen presence. Dastur, too, turns in an impressively confident performance as the rebellious hairdresser whose own hairdo states her intentions upfront – a long pigtail on one side of the head and a razor-cut on the other, rounded off with a barcode tattoo on the neck.

Parts of Rajma Chawal might feel a touch under-cooked, but the rawness is only occasional. The work put in by the technicians is of the highest order. Among them are two internationally feted octogenarians, Australian cinematographer Donald McAlpine (Breaker Morant, Moulin Rouge!) and British editor Thom Noble (Witness, Thelma & Louise), who give the film is distinctive visual texture and narrative pace. The fluid camerawork takes in the alleyways, the terraces, the courtyards and the facades of Old Delhi in an unobtrusive, unflashy manner, enhancing the sense of intimacy that Rajma Chawal seeks to induce.

#FoodFestivalAlert: Flavours Of Colombia At The Legendary Machan


  • Indiana are knowing more about Colombian food
  • Indians are more aware of the culture, history and food of Colombia
  • The Colombian Embassy, has tied up with the Taj Mahal Hotel

“India is very popular in Colombia but Indians don’t know Colombia too well”, says Ms. Clemencia Forero Ucros, Ambassador of Colombia here in New Delhi who has been stationed here for a little over 6 months. And in just these few months, Ambassador Ucros can already point out all the similarities between her country and ours. According to her, people of her country are as warm and welcoming. Our love for family, dancing, movies and movie-stars and a rich cuisine are some more attributes that are common between India and Colombia, a nation that is fast emerging as a favourite South American holiday destination for travellers across the world.

Colombian food fest

Great chef’s under one roof

In a bid to bring knowledge about their culture, history, and indeed its food, The Colombian Embassy, has tied up with the Taj Mahal Hotel in New Delhi to recreate the gastronomic diversity of Colombia through a week-long festival being held at the iconic Machan. The festival aims to bring a slice of Colombia to the heart of India through a variety of dishes that represent not just the flavours, but also the different regions of this dynamic South American nation.

The festival brings together Chef Alejandro Gutierrez and Chef Arun Sundararaj who team up to present some exquisite Colombian dishes like ajiaco, carimanolas and sancocho. Chef Alejandro runs a restaurant with his partner in Colombia’s capital city, Bogota. They aim to use local produce in the most innovative ways at their cafe back home.

About Colombian Cuisine

Colombian cuisine is as diverse and vibrant as its topography. Rice, corn, potato and legumes are eaten a lot, and in many different ways. One of the most popular Colombian dishes is bandeja paisa. It’s a large plate with beans, rice, ground meat and fried egg as its main components. Don’t forget avocado and tomatoes – two ingredients extensively used across many local dishes.

As you head towards the Amazon basin – cassava (a type of tuber) and yuca root are enjoyed quite a bit. Colombians don’t eat too much spice, so the flavours are milder but made very interesting with the use of tomatoes, avocados, onions and garlic. Thanks to a favourable climate, the country is home to some rare fruits like noni and zapote. Fruits like mango, berries and apples are also found here in great abundance.

The ongoing food feast at Taj Mahal Hotel is a great way to learn more about Colombian cuisine and enjoy flavours from this South American cultural hub.

Here are top 4 dishes that you must try at the food festival:

Lamb Carimanola

This is a traditional Colombian croquette made using cassava and ground lamb meat, a type of root vegetable. It is mildly flavoured and is served with a chili sauce and a dash of yogurt. If you are looking to take baby-steps towards Colombian cuisine, try a carimanola (veg or non-veg) and you’ll never look back.

Corn Envuelto

Next, we recommend you to go for a corn envuelto. ‘Envuelto’ literally means ‘wrapped’ in Spanish; here a corn pate of sorts is cooked and served in a corn wrap, topped with a few strands of caramelised corn silk. Three different parts of the corn are used here innovatively giving the final dish a very interesting texture and taste.

Pacific Style Rice

For mains, we recommend you to go for pacific-style rice with a meat of your choice. Don’t forget to mix it all up with a generous helping of tomato, avocados and onions in a fresh tangy mix.

Don’t Forget Colombian Coffee

Ending with a cup of Colombian coffee would be perfect. What’s even better is the signature mango cafe and chocolate dessert that stays with you long after you leave the restaurant.

The week-long feast is a must try. After all, how often do you see the finest flavours of Colombia come together so seamlessly at the legendary Machan.

Festival Details:

Date: 26th May – 2nd June, 2018
Buffet Lunch At Machan:

Monday To Friday – INR 2100 plus taxes per guest
Saturday & Sunday – INR 2600 plus taxes per guest

If you like Persian food, the zeytoon parvardeh with pomegranate seeds, chopped walnuts and green olives flavoured with mint leaves and served with crisp lavash, is a great pick. Among the non-vegetarian starters, the jejuh kebabs which consist of marinated chicken thighs grilled in the oven and served with a curd dip and a side of salad is the best option.

Moving on to the mains, there is no dearth of exciting curries, breads and pulao to choose from and both vegetarians and non-vegetarians are bound to be spoilt for choice. Vegetarians may wager a chance at the apple curry which is made from grilled apple pieces, cooked in Kashmiri spices and served with tamiri roti, or go for the Khoresht Gharch, which consists of three types of mushrooms in a mild and creamy yogurt gravy, served with pulao.

For non-vegetarians, the absolute best choice is the Kandhari mutton, which is sure to keep you coming back to Orza. The dish comprises a juicy baby mutton shank in a rich tomato gravy, flavoured with garam masala and served with tamiri roti. The mutton is tender and flavourful and the rotis are light and soft, indicating the presence of curd in the dough.


Orza also has show-stopping desserts, which include the middle-eastern sweet delight Bakhlava and the Persian-date dessert Ranginak. Both the desserts are toothsome in their own right, but if there were a competition, the Bakhlava would definitely win.

The Bakhlava is bigger in size, than what you would usually get and has an unusual filling made from candied strawberries and other nuts. The Ranginak was a crumbly sweet delight served with vanilla ice-cream and is great for someone wanting to try out something new.

The Drinks Menu

The restaurant’s alcohol menu is limited but all the classic cocktails including cosmopolitan, daiquiris, mojitos are available. The restaurant also serves some IMFL drinks and also has a small but dependable mocktail menu.

Final Word

The food  at Orza is above average and is definitely worth a try, especially for non-vegetarians. The dishes are reasonably priced and won’t leave a huge dent on your pocket. However, the portions aren’t exactly huge, given the single-serving concept of each dish, which means that one dish will be filling for just one person. Overall, Orza is a great addition to Delhi’s food scene.

For instance, the beetroot halwa, which you don’t find easily across restaurants and hotels, but in Gujarat it is prepared popularly in marriages and big functions.”

On our plate was, mixed dal nu dhokla, lilwal kachori, fritters made of fresh tuvar beans. The star of the mains was definitely Undhiyu, a traditional Gujarati assortment of vegetable with muthiya; a bowl of sweet and soothing Gujarati kadhi; the savoury paneer kathiyawadi; and the lovely dal dhokli. The piping hot theplas went amazingly with all the delicacies served. However, the show stealer for us had to be the rich desserts. Beetroot halwa, mango shrikhand and sukhdi sweet ladoo all made for a delightful ending to a wholesome meal experience.
