Chennai Express Movie Review-In Short:
A man on his way to fulfill his grandfather's last wish helps a girl get into a train and ends up on the run across South India from a powerful don's goons.
 
Chennai Express Movie Review-Verdict:
Combine Shah Rukh Khan's infinite charm and comic sense with Rohit Shetty's style of madcap fun and what you get is an enjoyable ride!
 
Chennai Express Movie Review-Story Plot:
40-year-old Rahul, the grandson of a halwai, wants to go to Goa to chill with his pals, but ends up on the Chennai Express to ostensibly fulfil his dead grandfather's last wish (to have his ashes immersed in Rameshwaram).
 
When the train starts, Rahul helps Meenamma (Deepika Padukone) get onto the running train, only to discover that she is on the run from her father, a powerful don in South India. It seems the father wants to marry her off to another villain Thangaballi (Nikitin Dheer), which made Meenamma run away. Things get more complicated when Meenamma and Rahul are traced and brought back to her hometown and she tells everyone that Rahul is her lover and very soon, the two find themselves on the run from every goon in South India, with hilarious consequences.

Chennai Express is the first ever collaboration of Rohit Shetty with Superstar Shahrukh Khan who is paired alongside his Om Shanti Om co-star, Deepika Padukone. This much awaited romcom has Vishal-Shekhar handling the music department with Amitabh Bhattacharya penning the lyrics. Being a Rohit Shetty entertainer, it is a given that the music will boast of a high entertainment quotient and this when coupled with the highly successful combination of Vishal-Shekhar – Shah Rukh Khan, would surely mean that the music will be a surefire chartbuster. It is with this humongous expectation that one begins to listen to the soundtrack of Chennai Express.

The album opens with 1234 – Get on the Dance Floor that literally makes one want to get up and dance. Sung enthusiastically by composer Vishal Dadlani alongside Hamsika Iyer, this fast paced and energetic South Indian tapori-style track also has a bit of Tamil rap thrown in by Sricharan Kasturirangan. This madcap number is peppered with some quirky and inane lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya but it is indeed a no-brainer that this one is going to (or should we say already) set the music charts on fire!

From the fast paced to the serene, Titli surely comes as a breath of fresh air. This romantic number begins with a classical music based Tamil verse (which appears intermittently through the song) that instantly captures one’s attention followed by Chinmayi’s mellifluous voice which literally blows your breath away. Ably supported by Gopi Sunder, Chinmayi who is a popular singer down south manages to bring in the joyous feeling of love and romance through her honey-soaked voice. Titli is the kind of number that one expects in a Shah Rukh Khan romantic film and Vishal-Shekhar manage to hit the bulls-eye with this one, not only by way of their composition and excellent choice of musical instruments (from Guitar to Mridangam!) but also in the choice of singers.

Chennai Express TRIVIA

Shah Rukh Khan who has been shooting for Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express in Wai used a bike to commute on the sets. The set which was spread over acres of land and required Shah Rukh Khan to move from one spot to another and the actor found the bike to be the most easiest and accessible mode of transport.
