Synopsis

40-year-old Punjabi man is on a mission to immerse his grandfather’s ashes down South. Enroute he meets a young Tamilian girl who has eloped. Their lives entwine and his journey takes an altogether different route.

Critic's Review

In an ode to his own cinema read Golmaal series, Bol Bachchan, Rohit Shetty ishstyle, the director, who has grossers in Bollywood's 100-crore club, ups the scale for his Eid offering.

Chennai Express (CE) is a magnificently mounted film. Never having been strong in the story department, CE too has a guillible plot line. Rahul ( Shah Rukh Khan) is asked by his dadi (Kamini Kaushal) to drop his granddad's ashes in Rameswaram, the southern-most tip of India. He boards the Chennai Express to hoodwink granny but has secretly planned a getaway with his guy friends to Goa. Alas, in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge fashion, a damsel in distress, Meena ( Deepika Padukone) asks for his outstretched hand as he stands on the footboard. And his Samaritan act changes his destiny.

He discovers she's the daughter of a Don from a South-side village and her accompanying cousins (hulks in pony tails) want her to return home. Her father wants Meena to marry another hulk (Niketan Dheer) from a nearby village, so he can then rule two villages. Meena resists and insists to her father (Sathyaraj) that it is Rahul who has her fancy. The father relents but the other hulks resist.

From here on, Rahul constantly tries to outsmart the South Indian mob. And as expected in Indian mainstream cinema, he breaks into song-and-dance, gets drunk, blows up jeeps and does a Jim Carryish over-the-top act to get guffaws from a captive audience.

For what is primarily a Hindi film, there's too much spoken Tamil. There are cleverly written lines that ask you not to underestimate the south because it even plays a crucial role in the coalition government, but for the rest of India, a lot of the dialogue is lost in translation. Subtitles would be in order.

After Cocktail and Yeh Jaawani Hai Deeewani, Deepika is once again in superlative form. Shah Rukh's attempts at comedy go from convincing to convoluted. But, for the most part, he lights up the screen with his effervescence.

A pathetic movie, with no regard for the audience or the actors. It is an extremely poor attempt by SRK to do a Dabbang like Salman Khan. Deepika is so bad in her dialogue delivery that it would be impossible to be worse in attempting to spak Hindi like a Tamilian. Couldn't she have looked at Padosan?

The whole-hearted zeal that Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika bring to the table and the steady flow of funny one-liners serve Shetty’s purpose well, turning Chennai Express into an elopement-against-all-odds rigmarole that hits the right buttons at most turns. Amid the flying bodies and cars that the director has a penchant for, the actors make their way through the rubble largely unscathed. That, of course, does not mean that Chennai Express does not hit its share of rough patches. It does, but thanks to the free-wheeling energy that courses through its body, the smooth passages make up for the ones that are riddled with jerks. Chennai Express is a full-on masala film that is completely unapologetic about its intentions. And that is its USP.

A laughter riot and considering it is Rohit Shetty's film that is a sort of prerequisite. Apart from that the plot is thin and the film is just passable.

One time watch for the beautiful locations of Munnar in Kerala. Typical Rohit Shetty ishtyle movie. Deepika has looked beautiful. SRK is in his typical 'Rahul' character. Songs are good. But definitely not worth a 200 Cr record shattering movie.

if maximum part of the movie were not shot in Tamil then the movie would have to struggle to reach 100cr. the comedy is good but it received more than expected response.

Good Movie from director Rohit Shetty. He has done good work to make his actors work brilliantly. Shahrukh Khan is as awesome as always and Deepika Padukone is the show stealer in this entertainment riot from beginning to end. Music is just okay.

Watched Chennai Express. Its a family entertainer after so much wait. Likes It very much. SRK and Deepika have performed well. Actually its the story line and direction which made the difference. The film started with a good note and kept its pace. May be edited in some sequences which are not worthy. But overall package is excellent. Kudos to the Film Unit of Chennai Express for this hilarious and family movie. Watched 3 times and still not bored.
