Bad movie:

1. Poor comedy that looks like it's intended for kids (especially for people in AP used now to the - in general - much more creative Telugu film comedy and dialogues)

2. A poor plot - one of the worst in SRK's career

3. A cowardly hero (we do not go to the movies for that, especially superstar movies)

4. Insipid romance (for a movie supposed to be a romance, the actual romance kicks in only in the last 30 minutes or so)

5. Poor chemistry between the lead actors (Deepika is 27 and SRK looks 45)

This is a classic example of a movie that will cross 200 crores due to a superstar starring in it, extremely aggressive promotion, and poor competition. It is a sign of today's Bollywood - Rohit Shetty's movies become blockbusters due to the competition being even worse.
There was, once, a Bollywood that courted its audiences with the suggestive melody of "Gaadi Bula Rahi Hai". Now, moviegoers are pursued with an unrelenting, in-your-face, "Get On The Train, Baby".

"Ticket khareed ke baith ja seat pe, nikal na jaaye Chennai Express," we are summoned. Unabashed, you say. Such is the tone, such are the times. The film is a blatant pursuit of mad fun, the kind that promises to entertain you without plot or prudence. Fortunately, it does entertain - well, mostly.

Rahul (Shahrukh Khan), a mischevious 40-year-old (no smirking, please) ....
