Irrfan Khan starrer Madaari had hit the theatres on the July 22, the same day superstar Rajinikanth’s movie, Kabali had released in the theatres of India. On the first day, the film opened with a collection of Rs.2.25 crore while on day two, (Saturday) the film had hit Rs 3.50 crore in India as tweeted by trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

The thriller, which sees Irrfan Khan and director Nishikant Kamat team up again after the award-winning Mumbai Meri Jaan, has been lauded by the film fraternity too. While the film is about taking a stand and shouldering responsibility, it also showcases the bond between a father and son.

Madaari presents Irrfan in a role that he aces with such ease that it’s hard to see he’s ‘acting’. But he’s placed at the centre of a film which is so patchy and contrived that even he cannot rescue it, The Indian Express reviewer Shubhra Gupta mentioned in her review of the film.

“The idea has power. The execution has very little,” she said on the storyline of the film.

Actress Deepika Padukone who had shared a screen with the actor in Piku, lauded the film. “It’s outstanding. I think it’s one of those film that’s going to stay with us for a very very long time and going to get all of us thinking, and it’s going to stir you up emotionally,” Deepika said in a statement, as reported by PTI.

The 49-year-old actor had interviewed politicians like the Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal and RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav for the promotion of this film. He also wanted to interview Prime Minister Narendra Modi, however, the actor did not receive any appointment yet.

“In the film Madaari Irrfan Khan plays a man who is fighting for his family. However, even in reality the actor is interested in understanding how the whole ‘system’ actually works and analyse the particular problems we citizens face and what are the steps these people take, so that is why the actor is personally meeting the politicians to widen his knowledge about the complete system,” a source close to the actor told The Indian Express.

But the box office collections are not really the actor’s main concern. “My intention is to entertain the audience through a film. I never think about 100 crores, 200 crore clubs,” he said in an exclusive conversation with Jagdeesh Chandra.

Madaari also stars Jimmy Sheirgill, Vishesh Bansal, Tushar Dalvi, Nitish Pandey and Ayesha Raza.
