Critic Reviews for Chennai Express
Shetty's need to maintain his characters' romantic heroism constantly grates against his depictions of their ridiculousness.
The movie chugs along for most of its 2 hours and 20 minutes searching for comedy and characters in a frantically overplotted story.
Like the southbound train of the title, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's romantic action-comedy-musical Chennai Express barrels forward with barely a stop to rest.
A loud, lame-brained romantic comedy from the (very) broad directorial brush of Rohit Shetty, SRK's over-hyped vehicle sees the charismatic but ageing actor badly miscast and easily overshadowed by his leading lady, Deepika Padukone.
It's just enough of a change of pace for Rohit Shetty to seem like a radical step forward without being so much of one as to be unrecognizable, as it's still funny and exciting, and the visuals pop.
This Bollywood farce, dressed in the colourful costumes of a romantic adventure with music, is an oversize comedy and a couple of hours (plus intermission) of sheer escapism
