Critic Reviews for Chennai Express

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

Chennai Express - Bolly's biggest release of 2013 - is a shameless, silly and shallow 'masala' entertainer which represents, yet again, everything that is reprehensible about mass commercial Hindi cinema.

Khan's gift for effortlessly moving between comedy and love scenes is complemented by Padukone's striking beauty and comic chops.

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.

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.

I kind of liked the film, I just wish there was a bit more meat on these very familiar bones.
