Review: Chennai Express

"Chennai Express", with its huge marketing campaigns and tie-ups, heavy duty promotions, eclectic catchy music, as well as a grand release of over 3,500 screens in the country and 700 screens abroad, is expected to outshine "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag". It is also being dubbed in nine languages - English, French, Spanish, Arabic, German, Hebrew, Dutch, Turkish and Malay."

'Chennai Express' is a commercial entertainer and has an obvious and enormous demand overseas with Deepika Padukone's and Shah Rukh Khan's fan base," says Amrita Pandey, executive director, International Distribution Studios, Disney UTV.

Chennai Express: The film
Nine months after failing to impress his fans with his true-romantic avatar in "Jab Tak Hai Jaan", SRK has taken the commercial action-comedy genre route, which is usually the trademark of his arch rival Salman Khan.
 The hit jodi of 'Om Shanti Om' is back after seven years in 'Chennai Express'. It remains to be seen if this film can top their earlier hit in terms of box-office numbers.
 Deepika Padukone plays a South Indian in the film. For her, it is a sense of Déjà vu. Deepika, who hails from Bangalore had reportedly struggled to get the accent right when she stepped into Bollywood.
 Rohit Shetty whose films are known for their high-octane stunts has directed this romantic action-comedy. This is the first time, he teams up with Shah Rukh Khan.
 The story is simple. Boy meets girl. They fall in love and the girl's father doesn't like it. Much like SRK's earlier hit 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge' but with a twist.
 Apart from the Lungi Dance which is SRK's tribute to Rajnikanth, we'll get to see South hottie Priyamani doing an item number in a Hindi film.
 On August 9, director Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express brings together SRK and Deepika Padukone together on the big screen once again after the hit movie Om Shanti Om.
 This is the first time Rohit Shetty is collaborating with Shah Rukh Khan.
 SRK has spent over two decades in filmdom affirms that his films are meant for the masses.
 But the audience may have to shell out of rnoney for the multiplex ticket.Tickets to the Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone starrer will now cost upto 40 per cent more, thanks to a decision taken by the multiplexes.
 The Lungi song which has been trending on the chart is SRK's tribute to Rajnikanth.
 Whether this film will chug into the audience's heart or not, we have to wait and watch.

'Chennai Express' is a comedy film with a love story, but it's definitely not like 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' or 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. It's a family entertainer. There's a little action too," SRK stated recently.
Will "Chennai Express" chug away to success with all its steam?
