Bollywood thriller and spy movie "Madras Cafe" is written by Somnath Dey and Shubendu Bhattacharya and directed by Shoojit Sircar. It has John Abraham, Nargis Fakhri and Rashi Khanna in lead roles.

The movie showcases assassination of former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. John Abraham plays the role of a special officer of Indian Army. He is appointed by RAW (agency Research and Analysis Wing) for a mission in Sri Lanka during the Sri Lankan Civil War. The mission of Major Vikram Singh (John Abraham) is to disrupt the LTTE rebels. On his mission, Vikram meets Jaya Sahni played Nargis Fakhri who is a British journalist at Sri Lanka. She is researching to discover the truth about the civil war. The ups and downs Vikram faces during the mission form the story of the movie.
Being an international spy thriller, the movie has a decent production design for its budget although not as good as ‘Bourne Movies’, it is a popcorn watch.
