Chennai Express, will be a well deserved entry in the 100 crore club!
Chennai express has everything going for it from the word PO!(Go in Tamil) I am a die hard Shahrukh fan and love Deepika too and let me tell you I wasn't disappointed at all!(though I had serious,serious doubts about the film till it actually began)
The film is a laugh riot! Amazing comedy timing, carefully written script, beautifully shot and two absolutely BRILLIANT actors. Deepika in particular is exceptionally good! She does so well that Shahrukh is side lined in a number of scenes they have together! The support cast and background actors do a fab job too.
A lot had been written and said about what is the need for Shahrukh to follow the others and be a part of another brainless action flick. But thats the difference, this one is miles away from one. No south film remake, no ridiculous flying fight scenes and the female lead actually HAD a role! I never thought the two of them could actually come together and make a one of a kind film, keeping the essence of the genres that each of them is famous for intact!
An original Bollywood flick 'King Khan' and Rohit Shetty style.
The music is extremely catchy and does complete justice to the film,not being too much, but just right.So a BIG thumbs up to Vishal-Shekhar!
A good comedy after a long, long time. Shahrukh had said that he took up this movie only because he was in 'splits' when he heard the script. And he's right, the script is the hero and thats why everything else falls in place. There is logic to everything.
If your a Shahrukh or Deepika fan, your're in for a treat! And the others, trust me, you will not be bored! :)
So,get on the train baby!
And, for the record, this film does not show any of the community in bad light or try to ridicule a south Indian as it was assumed initially by a lot of people as Deepika was required to do a south accent. I agree its not completely authentic but the dialogues are so good that the different accents is just to portray the cultural difference. Me, being a part north Indian and part south Indian did not feel humiliated but enjoyed every little bit. :)
