Critic Reviews for Chennai Express

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (8)

  • 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.

    August 13, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Shetty's need to maintain his characters' romantic heroism constantly grates against his depictions of their ridiculousness.

    Top Critic
  • The movie chugs along for most of its 2 hours and 20 minutes searching for comedy and characters in a frantically overplotted story.

    August 8, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • I kind of liked the film, I just wish there was a bit more meat on these very familiar bones.
