  1.  Lets get on the train 11 February, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I bought this movie a week ago and watched with my family.
    Obviously, its a great movie that one can enjoy it with their family.
    In this movie, Shah Rukh Khan played a role of young man named Rahul.
    The actress is Deepika Padukone as a resident of South India.
    The love story develops between them throughout the movie and at last, Love wins.

    >> Positives :-
    • Nice comedy scenes.
    • Well spoken language by Deepika Padukone.
    • The movie if full of good songs.
    • And a powerful villan.

    >> Negatives :-
    • The film doesn't gives a definite moral.
    • Sometimes, overacting comes into account.

    > HAPPY ENDING !

     Chennai Express: Derailed! 30 August, 2013 On Junglee.com
    There will be two types of audiences for Chennai Express.
    Those who hated it and those like me who found it tolerable and even amusing in more ways than one. Being a Rohit Shetty film you know it will be entertaining, with a wafer thin story line, a couple of car crashes (which he invariably includes as the kids like/expect it) and over the top song sequences and needless to say: he uses lots of color throughout his films making it almost surreal and dreamlike but kitsch factor works. Collegians have panned the movie though that has not stopped its run.
    Initially, Rohit Shetty and SRK wanted to remake the 1982 popular film Angoor by Gulzar, based on Shakespeare’s comedy of errors but was later shelved for some reasons.
    You have to constantly shift your eyes from one spot to another in the big canvass and makes it the fastest ever weekly collection in Bollywood history. In spite of all its faults (and there are many) it’s still a film that one can see with a family. Pure escapist entertainment and the Paneer Naan-Idly Sambhar (This is Shah Rukh Khan -SRK's second film with Deepika after Aum Shanti Aum) blend works quite well.
    Even though most of the film lapses into Tamil ( after all we do put up with a lot of Punjabi in films like Vicky Donor and Jab Tak Hai Jaan) one really does not miss Hindi that much and it speaks much about the directors ability and confidence to drive the point to the audience sans language.
    I saw the film on Independence Day in Jamnagar to a packed house. In Pakistan all other films were shunted out as they could not get enough of Deepika (as Meenamma Lochni) and is now the biggest ever hit in Pakistan eclipsing Dabaang 2.
    The reason was to make any many people see the film before the reviews started. Not that it matters to the director Rohit Shetty who is unapologetic about his films. Deepika and Deepika only is the reason you should see the film.
    It’s the most bizarre portrayal of a South Indian Tamil woman so far seen in Bollywood. She will of remind you of the spoofs done by yester-year comedian Memmood in his south Indian portrayals especially when she wears a Lungi.
    The way she speaks (her language is a riot) the way she dresses in South Indian apparel: Plain saris with contrasting borders, bindis, kanjeevarams, gold jhumkis, Gajras and jewellery.
    The film portrays the Indian Down Under Southern states skilfully.
    In the temple scene watch out for her expressions as she realises that she could be falling for SRK. Its an honest portrayal for once SRK does not look that perturbed about playing second stage to Deepika and he gets a chance to make up for his buffoonery with his last speech in the film.
    The night “Chudail” scene had everyone laughing at the sheer impunity of it all.
    For once STRK does not look that jaded (as he did in Rab ne Banadi Jodi with Anushka Sharma or more recently With Katrina in Jab Tak Hein Jaan)
    Never has Rural South India looked so heavenly and has been captured by the camera lovingly.
    Watch out for locations like Munnar (Kerala) Dudhsagar Falls (Karnataka: the train stops here and since in real life the stop is only for twenty minutes there were a lot of retakes and immaculate planning) Rameshwaram (SRK is excellent in this role while immersing the ashes of his grandfather: a poignant scene) Jakarta, Goa and Wai in Panchgini, Maharasthra (where the second village was erected from scratch.)
    The songs have lots of pep and my personal favourite is “Titli” and the title track will continue to buzz in your mind after the film is over.
    It was lovely to see yester year’s actress Kamini Kushal in a small role. Deepikas father acted by Sathyaraj deserves a special mention and also Nikitin Dheer (also seen in Jodha Akhbar and Dabanng 2) who acts as Deepikas would be lover who mends his ways at the end.
    The films plays tribute to several films like Dilwaale Dulhaniya lejaayenge (including a spoof from the now famous train scene between Kajol and SRK) and Ra-One, 3 Idiots and Main Hun Naa. The village goons are a class among themselves and deserve a special mention.
    In a nutshell, leave aside your intellectual glasses before venturing in the cinema and have a time of your life.

     Big Names Short of Ideas And Delivery 24 November, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Movie Review: Chennai Express: Big Names Short of Ideas And Delivery

    Big names associated with Chennai Express like Rohit Shetty, Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Yo Yo Honey Singh etc. fail to create a magic in this movie. First of all it is not clear if the movie is meant for Hindi knowing audience or Tamil. Lot of Tamil dialogues are there in the movie where movie watchers will have no idea and they keep guessing.

    Lot of masala has been tried by Rohit Shetty in an effort to draw attention from masses. Songs, story, dialogues, script - none though are can be called as excellent. Story is quite weak and theme of the movie is light entertainment. Story is about a

    Tamil girl (Deepika Padukone) who is running from her home as her father is forcing her to marry with a boy of his choice which she is not interested in. On the same train (Chennai Express) you will find Shahrukh Khan who has planned to get down at Goa though he has promised his grandmother that he is going to Rameshwaram to disperse remains of his grandfather who died recently, in the sea there. Though he promised his grandmother the same but is not serious about it and has planned to go to Goa along with his friends and enjoy there for some time.

    But finding Deepika in the same train changes his plans and he decides travel ahead in the same train instead of getting down at Goa. Gradually they fall in love, and next big task for Shahrukh is to convince Deepika's father to allow him to marry with her.

    The train in no way is express. It is slower than any slowest of the train. You will have a big fight in deciding which half was more boring, and slower too. Go with a 100% risk to watch this movie. It may totally spoil your mood if you go with some expectations from this movie.

     Entertainment! 19 November, 2013 On Junglee.com
    A very nice movie. But the movie has many scenes of telugu and tamil movies remixed and remade The movie may seem fresh to the North indians when they watch it. But southern guys will surely spot it. Shah's performance was stunning as usual. It mixes southern and northern indian styles and brings out best entertainment.

     Chennai Express Review 12 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Chennai Express released with a whooping response in India as well as overseas. As we all know, it has made smashing records at the BO.

    Set amidst the picturesque regions of South India and starring Shah Rukh Khan & Deepika Padukone, will Chennai Express prove to be a mass entertainer? Has Rohit Shetty delivered his best by casting these two larger-than-life actors?

    Rahul, played by SRK, embarks on a journey from Mumbai to Rameshwaram to fulfil his beloved grandfather's last wish of immersing his ashes there. On the way, he meets a South Indian lady, Meenamma, played by Deepika, who has been abducted by few lusty captors. Meena explains SRK that her father has sent these captors to bring her back to her home, in Komban village. Meena tells SRK that she busted out of her home because her father (a renowned Don) wanted her to marry to Tangaballi, played by Nikitin Dheer, against her will.

    A series of hilarious events takes place in the train. The next morning, Rahul tries to escape from the clutches of these formidable captors, but to his surprise, the train has already entered the realm of Meena's father. Everything in this area is under the control of her father, including the stoppage of Chennai Express at Komban village. Nobody has the valour to go against him. Unable to decipher the Tamilian conversation between Meena and her Dad, en route to her home, Rahul asks Meena what did she tell her Dad which calmed him down. Meena explains him that, to respite from the direful situation, she had weaved a story about their love with each other and also that they wished to get married.

    Reluctant to latch on to this complex situation, Rahul just wants to flee from Komban. Meena assures Rahul that they both can escape from her village at night. Can they manage to slip away from the clutches of her father's garrison and Tangaballi, the strapping don who challenges Rahul to defeat him in one-on-one fight?

    Chennai Express is encrusted with an all-inclusive masala moments. From uproarious convos to gravity negating action sequences, from romantic scenes to ferocious confrontations, Chennai Express is sure to regale you till the very end.

    Shah Rukh Khan is undoubtedly the powerhouse of Chennai Express, who carries the film on his shoulders maturely. Deepika is a surprise package who never lets you down with her first-rate South Indian accent and attire. Though the film contains one or two futile moments and a music which could've been much better, overall, the film is a complete entertainer.

    The locomotive engine of Chennai Express has been given a green signal by the audience. What are you waiting for then? Embark on this humorous journey asap and witness the mighty meld of Rohit Shetty and SRK saga. For those who don't like SRK, I'd like to ask, doesn't he bring a smile to your face when he smiles, romances his ladies and tries to amuse you on the screen? I'm sure he does. SRK can, without a slightest doubt, woo each and every type of audience.
    I've already boarded the express and don't wanna alight at any station...

    Final verdict : GO FOR IT !

    Thank you for reading the review. Hope you have a wonderful time at the cinema

     Srk now to compete with Rajni...Boss !!! 12 August, 2013 On Junglee.com
    SRK has always tried hitting on bigger star by copying their movies, styles, lifestyle. He did with ABachan by copying DON, now moving south in the end of movie he imitate as Rajni fan.
    Movie was an entertainer but too much of tamil in movie without subtitles....
    Action is just like other Rohit Shetty movies, cars flying, car rotating in slow motion...
    Deepu is in very Non-Glamourous role, always in south sari....but still looking good.

    All in all a good movie.

     SRK doing what he does best 22 August, 2013 On Junglee.com
    While I will say the movie is entertaining in parts, it does get tiresome. SRK is in his element, whether romancing the girl, wooing the dad or fighting the bad guys. Deepika does a decent job of portraying a South Indian damsel in distress. The Tamil in the movie is hard to follow and can feel excessive for those who dont speak a word of it. The songs are great but by the end of the movie you just want it to end. The chemistry between SRK and Deepika is luke warm at best.
