Sharukh Khan Chennai Express Movie Review and Rating

What happens when entertainers like Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Rohit Shetty join forces? Simple – entertainment, entertainment and hell lot more entertainment. Chennai Express lives up to its gargantuan hype and how?

Rohit Shetty rides his Chennai Express on a simple funda — entertainment. Replete with larger-than-life heroism, comical episodes, high-pitched drama, poppycock and fiery dialogues, peppy music, gravity-defying action, mass appealing humor and of course, car-smashing stunts in trademark Rohit Shetty ishtyle. In short, Chennai Express is a total paisa vasool entertainer. The film isn’t anything groundbreaking and all. Nor is it a spoof.. Chennai Express is a super masala entertainment that will leave you in splits for the most part.

Chennai Express review

Story :

Little did the 40-year-old Rahul know while boarding the Chennai Express that this trip would prove to be the most eventful journey of his life. Even in his wildest dreams he couldn't have possibly though that wooing the doe-eyed Meenamma on train in “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge”style would land him up in deep mess. But what he deemed as the biggest mistake of his life, soon turns out to be life-changing for him. SRK revives ‘Rahul’ albeit in Rohit Shetty 'ishtyle'. It all starts after Rahul boards the Chennai Express where he meets Meenamma, the daughter of a powerful South don (Sathyaraj), who takes the train to flee from her imposing dad who wants marry her off to a villainous fiance whom she doesn't love (Nikitin Dheer). What unfolds next is a spate of uncanny but extremely funny situations that sees them fall in love in the most bizarre way.

Analysis :

Chennai Express-review

Chennai Express is an out and out entertainer, a cheeky masala fare that packs is loads of fun. Cashing in on the tried-and-tested mantra of love triumphing against all odds, Chennai Express offers colossal doses of fun. It leaves you guffawing, beaming, and jaws-dropped throughout. At no point, does the film lose its steam.

The action is terrific, especially towards the end. The power-packed duel between SRK and Nikitin gives the film a much-needed punch. The stunning cinematography deserves a standing ovation and Vishal-Shekhar's very,very massy number just adds the right amount of zing to the movie. The “lungi” song in the end adds as icing on the cake. Not to miss Sajid-Farhad's belly-bursting dialogues that never fails to tickle.

Performance :

Chennai Express-review

SRK shines on as Rahul, full of life, humor, emotion, action and humor. Rohit drags SRK out of his comfort “romantic” zone and gives his character a comic wash laced with mind-blowing action stunts. SRK is a total surprise here. Deepika Padukone is a revelation in the film. The actress has surely come a long way with Chennai Express. Her diction is so entertaining, it will leave you delightfully amused.

Sathyaraj as Deepika's authoritative father, puts forward a powerful act.. Nikitin Dheer's towering presence adds a lot of weight to the movie. He looks just every bit menacing in his 'Thangabali' avatar.

Final Word:

Chennai Express is yet another feather in Rohit Shetty's cap. The movie lives up to its colossal hype and hoopla.

Entertainment truly can't get bigger than Chennai Express. All the lovers of masala movies, board Chennai Express pronto!

    Judwaa 2 Movie Review

    Judwaa 2 has been promising and entertaining right from the first frame. Varun Dhawan carried the entire film on his shoulders and he is a treat to watch. He excelled completely in the comic scenes and Judwaa 2 is his best film till date. Though the plot has been completely predictable, it is the entertainment, action and the songs which leave the audience entertaining. The first half of Judwaa 2 has been decent and lives up the expectations. The second half of Judwaa 2 too stands decent because of the entertainment levels. All the characters have been recreated from the original and not much homework has been done. The makers have been completely focused on the entertainment and the glamour. The songs have been shot well and they come at the right time in the film. The climax has been quite appealing and on the whole the second half too is a passable ride completely.

    Lucknow Central Movie Review

    Lucknow Central is one among the finest written scripts in the recent times. Yes, the first half of Lucknow Central takes its time to reveal the important characters of the film. Some of the episodes have been extremely hard hitting and they make a massive impact. The songs have been decent and they have been placed well. The interval episodes have been completely shot well and on the whole, the first half of Lucknow Central has been decent and impressive.The second half which is quite crucial has been handled extremely well. The emotions have been handled well and the audience have been kept anxious about the next episode. The screenplay along with the narration makes a huge impact across the audience. The songs which are crucial have been shot well and the climax is the major highlight of Lucknow Central. One cannot predict the twist and on the whole the second half of Lucknow Central lives up the expectations and ends up impressive.


  • Baadshaho Movie Review
    Baadshaho Movie Review

    Baadshaho manages to impress during the first half because of the star cast and the suspence that has been kept under wraps. Though the film dips down, it picks up immediately and the songs have been shot well. The action episodes and the locations have been grand. The first half builds all the needed momentum so that the audience eagerly wait for the second half. The second half of the film is a sheer disappointment and it offers nothing for the audience. The entire star cast have been wasted utterly. Most of the episodes have been stretched too much and the climax looks completely fake. On the whole the second half is the complete reason for the movie's massive debacle.
