Madras Mail (Chennai Express)
Director: RohitShetty
Cast: Shahrukh Khan, DeepikaPadukone and Tamil Nadu
Music: Vi shall Shek-huh you to death
Screenplay: What?
DOP: Dudley but not more…
 
Rating: ½ Star
The title is very misleading. Firstly, the train plays a part in the film for only the first fifteen minutes. Secondly, the pace of the film is more like the Madras Mail that takes two nights to arrive at Chennai from Mumbai and by then you would want to throttle somebody.
Where do I begin with this Madras Mail?
Rahul (Shahrukh Khan with raised eyebrows) has promised his grandmother that he will immerse his grandfather’s ashes in Rameshwaram but he wants to go to Goa with his friends to meet some NRI girls. His grandmother insists on dropping him to the station, so he decides to take the Madras Mail to hoodwink her but actually wants to get off at Kalyan- not to buy real estate – but to meet up with his friends and then take the road to Goa. However, he does not get off in time and ends up getting involved in the ridiculous life of Meena (DeepikaPadukone) who is trying to run away from her Lungi clad Mafioso father’s goons because he wants her to get married to the son of another Lungi clad Mafioso in Lungi Land.
Rahul and Meena fall in love- of course (but at the fag end of this nonsense when you are yearning to pull the chain to stop the train of your life).
So, the so – called story is more about a couple escaping from Lungi clad Mafiosos.
I apologise for not being able to indulge anymore in the plot. But you will appreciate that I am, obliquely, saving your time and money from being spent on this piece of absolute crap.
The less said the better.
The Tamilians and their language are made the butt of most of the jokes. The tragedy in this intentional comedy is that there is nothing funny about them. The parts are played by the Tamil actors in genuine and disciplined fashion and they come across as far better and far more talented than the Representative of the North.
