An efficient remake that stays close to the original

With her powerful performance, Aishwarya Rajesh holds the entire film together. The character is tailor-made for her, and it's undoubtedly one of the best in her career. Yogi Babu's cameo appearance is a surprise element, and it provides us some relief. More than the background score, the cinematography has really helped elevate certain portions to another level. The Great Indian Kitchen has stayed true to its original, and we have nothing to complain about its execution.(more)

The Great Indian Kitchen is a worthy remake with brilliant performances by the lead cast. From showing the day-to-day routine of a homemaker to curbing her rights, the film is a perfect reflection of society.(more)

A well-intended, yet functional remake

The Great Indian Kitchen might have been too faithful to its core material or the performances might have been too staged or even the perspectives might have been too one-note, but just like how our folklores find different narrations, narratives, and narrators, The Great Indian Kitchen too has found a Tamil voice through Kannan, Aishwarya Rajesh, and Rahul Ravindran. Did it ring loud, and clear? Probably not. But as the credits roll, The Great Indian Kitchen, with all its problems, reiterates that a woman breaking out of the shackles of patriarchy and making the people who thrive in the system get a liberal dose of the daily muck of an oppressive 'natural order' will always be satisfying.
