Chennai Express (2013)
Delivers just what expected Entertainment!!
Let me be honest I had very low expectations from Chennai express not with the amount of business it would do but in terms of content.The trailer didn't impress me and I don't like the so called "Masala movies".I love srk. His diversity in choosing films impresses me and that's the reason i went to see this movie.It was a gamble and it paid off.Chennai express is a roller coaster ride.
The basic plot of the movie as most of us know is : Rahul(Srk) wants to fulfill his grandfathers last wish to take his ashes to Rameshwaram. He boards the train and meets Meenamma(Deepika) she is being followed by her fathers goon which takes him to south India to her father who is a Don. Rest of the movie is all the situations he gets in while trying to runaway from the Periyathalai (Don).
The performances by Srk, Deepika are fantastic.Rest of the cast has also done well. These type of movies work mostly because of the gags and jokes that come one after the other.To my surprise they were very funny. I laughed out loud along with the people at a house-full single screen theater.The numerous references to shaharuk's other movies were funny and so was confusion which happened due to Rahul not knowing tamil. Rohit shetty has played to his strengths and that has worked.
The locations are aesthetic and when you put some one as pretty as Deepika in them it is a sheer treat for the eyes.The music by vishal shekhar is very good.It is the kind that grows on you. Titli is the standout track.With Srk you expect romance and you get it in the songs.As it is a rohit shetty film there is action in the climax.The thing i liked is the action wasn't over the top. Srk is not an action hero so if he does something only an action hero can do it would seem unbelievable.Thankfully it is well shot and completely believable off course little exaggeration is done as it is a rohit shetty film but overall its well shot.
To sum it up when you combine srk and team rohit shetty expectations are high and although its an express you expect nothing less than a bullet train.It delivers just what was expected entertainment for a good 140 mins.If you are a Srk fan like me this is a treat for you.Go enjoy with your family but remember its a masala movie so don't let your expectations run too high with the plot or you might be disappointed.
