    Chennai Express is a dull movie, there is no plot or story. There's just cheap laughs all held together by some impressive action scenes. It's getting so much attention because it has Shah Rukh Khan. Rohit Shetty's other works are promising but this one is dumb. Rahul is a coward and Meena is a English speaking dumbo. Watch Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara! It's way better than this sh*t.

    Although the film serves as a charming introduction to audiences new to the Bollywood genre, those well studied in the history of Shah Rukh Khan movies will be most rewarded, since the screenplay and songs make dozens of references to his earlier films.

    Shetty’s need to maintain his characters’ romantic heroism constantly grates against his depictions of their ridiculousness.

    Whether it's the wealth of meta-cinematic references to both Shetty's and Khan's other work, or the evolving romance between Khan and Padukone, or the handsomely mounted action, or the occasionally excellent songs, Chennai Express always has something up its sleeve.
