Chennai Express - Anything but Mindless
8 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

‎ChennaiExpress‬ - The movie delivered what promised and that is sheer ENTERTAINMENT.

Since it was a Rohit Shetty movie, I entered the theater having a mindset of seeing those illogical stunts and gravity defying action, but I was really surprised to see a "toned" down Rohit Shetty in this movie. Yes there were few action scenes here and there, but it was not very "over the top" as was synonymous with a Shetty movie. For me, I will not tag it as a complete "no brainer mindless masala flick", as it surely isn't.

Coming to acting, SRK's comic timing was impeccable even when he was hamming through the scenes, it was done with a purpose, but finally it was Deepika Padukone who stole the hearts with her endearing performance. And did I mention it was funny, rather hilarious at times.

A complete Family Entertainer.

Those who don't feel laughing their hearts out won't hurt their intellect, will surely love this movie
