Chennai Express Reviews

Good, but overrated.... and this comes from a die hard SRK fan... Bollywood needs to cut back on the fight scenes until they become more believable

Chennai Express is my first real experience with Bollywood and while it was't as lame as I expected it just isn't my cup of tea. Shahrukh Khan was charismatic as Rahul the immature self centered protagonist and though the actual story was entertaining and some of the spontaneous dances were fun to watch Chennai Express just didn't resonate or make me a fan of Bollywood. Perhaps other Bollywood films will be better at showing me why it is such a popular genre.

No Logic, No Story.. it was a headache to watch the film. The best scene of the film is "The End"

Nevertheless the movie uses the classical bollywood comedy ways to entertain and the mediocre performances of SRK and Deepika worsen the film. Illogically plotted and a hardly hilarious movie.

While it does not have a great plot, Chennai Express still lives up to the hype featuring great performances and ridiculous but hilarious scenes. Must watch movie.

The ridiculous and supercilious nature of this film is further heightened by its cringe-worthy drama. Yet, the spoof that is the end result is quite heart-warming and humorous. This is a prime example of a film in which one needs to neglect the nagging pokes of common sense and shift perspective. But at the end of the day, Chennai Express is a film with a meaningless plot with aesthetically pleasing sets.

One line summary: Occasionally funny; great scenery.
At 40 years of age, Rahul is looking to strike out on his own after his grandfather dies on his 100th birthday.
He promises his grandmother that he will take half his grandfather's ashes to the holy water of Rameshwaram for dispersal. He concocts a scheme with his friends to disperse the ashes, then to rendezvous in Goa for a vacation.
This starts out fairly well, but he nearly leaves the ashes on the Chennai express. He recovers them, but in the process unwittingly helps Meenamma get on the train, but also her four would be kidnappers. He and Meenamma try a few ploys to contact his friends and foil the kidnappers. All this goes awry. As it turns out, the kidnappers were representatives of her father Durgeshwara. Meenamma tells Durgeshwara that Rahul is her love interest. He attempts to escape the situation. Then Meenamma's other suitor shows up, and he intends some sort of duel to the death. This has to be sorted out. Misadventures, car chases, lost at sea, misunderstandings, you name it. The matter of the two suitors still has to be sorted out, after all the filler. Repeat to use up the 140 minutes.
Does this get better?
Cinematography: 10/10 Nicely shot and edited; great-looking scenery, costumes, sets.
Sound: 10/10 No problems. Could have used a few more musical numbers to shore up the lack of plot. I liked the numbers that were there.
Acting: 5/10 I liked the performance of Deepika Padukone, who seems to be on her way up. Shah Rukh Khan clearly has talent, but he seems a bit old for this, and he seems to be covering old ground.
Screenplay: 5/10 About 40 minutes of ideas done in 140.

As much as I should give this film a 2.5 or lower, the pure energy poured into Chennai Express makes this a nonstop ride with a couple of clever surprises around the corner. The OTT ending is really disappointing though....

Absolute rubbishness at its best.

Shamelessly written with poor footpath humor. Chennai Express is miserable even with country's biggest superstar (SRK) in it. Filled with over/under acting by its male lead and weak direction by Rohit shetty. I must admit, I loved his Singham. CE is filled with beautiful landscape and cinematography. The only merit I found is Deepika Padukone, apparently the only person honest to her role. Also it has poor visual effect supervision and a night shot taken directly from Disney studio's title. I did not saw it at the cinema, now I feel like lucky one. !

Shahrukh Khan tries hard to do Rohit Shetty kind of slapstick comedy but he fails miserably here. Result is extreme overacting. On the other hand Deepika Padukone is fairly decent even with that annoying accent. In this so called comedy, I only laughed 4 times (Yes, I fucking counted). Sadly a very pedestrian attempt with absolutely no screenplay & bad direction. And to go with Rohit Shetty tradition, film has everything from flying cars, poorly sketched characters & OTT action. I need a Crocin.

comical dialoges by srk and chemistry between him and deepika plus the hilarious sequences great movie

nonsense movie!!!the script made no sense,the jokes were completly pathetic...cant even imagine what was there to laugh if a tamil girl(deepika) was trying to say hindi in a wierd accent and the punjabi lad(srk) poking fun at her and her local peaple and culture??rohit shetty tried a serious issue present in our big indian society in a light hearted way where the outsider is being scrutinized for being an outsider for the way he looks,talks,eats,dresses,prays,talks and bla bla....and the end was worse..after fighting and playing hide and seek with each other for so many days , the villian realises its not a good thing to fight for a bad cause just for his ego and spares srk for his big heartedness to fight for his love!!(still some crazy peaple laughed at dis) #racist
the word "LUCKY" got a new meaning after the movie became the highest grosser in bollywood!!..maybe sir rajnikhant can take some credit for that as peaple do worship him in real in south india and must have watched this movie just for his one song(lungi dance) at the end!!trust me,they really would have :-/
