“Jo hum dekhte hain, sunte hain, sacch sirf utna nahin hota,” says the Indian Intelligence agent, played by John Abraham in director Shoojit Sircar’s film Madras Cafe.
The visuals in the first trailer of Madras Cafe are powerful. They recreate the infamous war in northern Sri Lanka to wipe out the local rebel army, the LTTE. Dead bodies litter the ravaged grounds; soldiers, militiamen, local guerillas, civilians, all are locked in the game of death. Into this madness and mayhem is pitchforked the Indian secret services officer (John Abraham).
He’s on a covert mission in Jaffna, backed by Indian forces. Also in the midst of this war is an international journalist (Nargis Fakhri). “Criticizing international policies doesn’t make me international (journalist),” she says in her thick American accent.
Madras Cafe is a spy thriller with a terrorism angle. The film was earlier titled Jaffna and it touches upon some sensitive issues.
