Chennai Express (U/A)
Length: - 2 hrs. 22 min.
Chennai Express is a boring film; it has all the ingredients of the masala films which don’t make any sense to the audience who wants to watch some serious cinema. There is too much Tamil in the film without any subtitles and explanation that what’s going on. The one liner is not cheesy enough and jokes are repetitive. Plot has always been a problem for an Indian film. In case of Chennai Express it is the biggest problem.
Rahul (Shahrukh Khan) plans for a vacation after his grandfather’s death but somehow he gets entangled with Meena (Deepika Padukone) whom he met in a train. Rahul wants to escape but because of Meena and the circumstances he couldn’t. Rahul and Meena go to village where Meena’s father is a big don and they both tries to escape from his father kingdom, which the later part of the story.
What’s enjoyable is beautiful locations and nice camera work for the starting few minutes in the film, but the drama is so dump that you feel like sleeping for a while. Everything can be easily predicted in the film and there is nothing you will be curious to watch. Shahrukh Khan seems like wasting his talent in a rubbish task. Deepika Padukone character is interesting and it gives you a good feel of a Tamilian girl by the way she speaks Hindi.
Verdict: - Too boring
