    My review of Chennai Express (2013) by rajverma67

    This film has been directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Gauri Khan for Red Chillies Entertainment. The story starts with Rahul. He is a 40-year-old guy who lives along with his grandparents in Mumbai. His grandfather has a family business of running his year’s long sweet business. Rahul’s parents died in an accident and his grandparents who took care of him since, he was a child. Rahul’s grandfather while he is celebrating his 99th birthday, dies seeing the match. Therefore, his friends tell him that they will go to visit Goa. Rahul agrees and convinces his grandmother that he will take his grandfather’s ash along with him to immerse in Ganga and Rameshwaram. So, Rahul reserves his tickets for Goa but he catches the train of Chennai Express. Rahul is extremely happy that he will be visiting Goa with his friends. But while he is in train, he sees a woman who is running behind his train to board the train. Therefore, Rahul helps her along with her few bodyguards. It is after this, he comes to know that her bodyguards have kidnapped her and he decides to free her when the TT comes to ask for the ticket. They throw the TT in water and also Rahul’s phone. Rahul misses his train to Goa and instead of going Goa, he has to go with Meenamma’s bodyguards and Meenamma’s place. She tells her that her father is a don of a place and that he shouldn’t leave the place. Meenamma dictates a fake story about her and Rahul’s life that they are in love with each other. Meenamma also confesses that her father her to get married to Thangabali. Thangabali is Meenamma’s father’s friend’s son. So in her place, Rahul is taken care of everything but in a poor way. The don announces the competition between Thangabali and Rahul. Rahul wants to run away from this place and he takes Meenamma along with him. Both Meenamma and Rahul cross all the hurdles and they reach Rameshwaram. In Rameshwaram, they immerse Rahul’s grandfather’s ashes. Meenamma is in love with Rahul and she confesses this to him. Even Rahul confesses his feelings by taking her to her own place. He decides to fight with Thangabali and win her father’s heart. The film shows fight sequence between Thangabali and Rahul with rahul winning the competition. Thangabali decides to lay Meenamma’s hand to Rahul. Rahul and Meenamma live happily ever after. If it’s a Rohit Shetty‘s film, you can see cars and other objects flying high in the air. The film has got a good concept and it keeps you entertained till the end. The film’s fighting sequence is also excellent. All the stunts have been performed by SRK himself. The film has outstanding songs, which have been composed by Vishal Shekhar and Yo Yo Honey Singh. The film’s strongest factor is the romantic chemistry between Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. The film’s contents, especially the songs written in Hindi take you to another world.
