|Rahul and Meenakshi|
Well,to be sure this movie has real clever laughter and good comic timing from Shahrukh and Deepika has leveraged this film to a Comedy Action Thriller.Direction is good by Rohit Shetty and the screenplay is average.
Rahul(SRK),showing his back to his friends to go on a trip to Goa,goes to Rameshwaram with the ashes of his Late grandfather,boarding Chennai Express.But,in the train he meets the beautiful Meenakshi aka Meenamma(Deepika Padukone),who is running from her imposing father,who is accidentally a South DON.From one to other, the two reach said village. Towering hulk who is also would-be-groom of Meenakshi arrives to growl and snarl.Then starts their journey to fight the evils,DON and The would-be-groom and makes them fall in love.
Rohit Shetty makes Chennai Express revel in ridiculousness and has a superstar crack jokes that are certainly beneath him. But he succeeds in his mission to entertain simply because of his actors who add marvel to his second rate jokes. Perhaps the best part of the film is when Meena and Rahul communicate through Hindi songs; it is the only place where the screenplay reflects imaginative quality.
