  •  Indian Express -Shubra Gupta Rating-5
Wannakum, wannago? I went into Chennai Express dreading I would be doused, doused I tell you, with a staggering number of stereotypes, and I would spend the film flinching and grimacing and counting the minutes.

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-5
The trouble with brands is that you come to know what to expect. Director Rohit Shetty has achieved an enormous deal by being one but it has also limited his creative progress. Unlike his films, he's a pretty sharp guy but there's a sameness to his shtick.Does Chennai Express 

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-6
The action of the film is something that stenches of typical Rohit Shetty flavor. It is not bad just regular with cars flying in the air and windscreens smashing. It arises quite an unsettling feeling as it is disturbingly follows the same pattern with a mere seasoning of Tamil tadka on it.

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-6
It’s a somewhat long ride that occasionally teeters on the edge of tedium, but it certainly isn’t all wrong. Parts of Chennai Express, propelled by a spirit of inspired lunacy that holds the no-holds-barred action comedy in good stead, is markedly better than the sum total of the film.

  •  Daily Bhaskar -Mayank Shekar Rating-2
I saw Chennai Express about a month back. This was on a road-trip in Tamil Nadu. I watched a long set of semi-decrepit bogeys pass by lush green meadows. The name over the windows looked familiar. It was a train of course, full of second-class non-AC compartments,

  •  Rediff -Raja Sen Rating-2
Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express is a curious beast, a film it seemed would lampoon the South Indian blockbuster — those films we claim are cheesier and sillier than our own (and then remake with much fanfare) — but happens to be, in fact, the diametric opposite. This is, in many ways, a full-throated tribute, a Sun TV Strikes Back statement of a film,

  •  DNA -Sarita Tanvar Rating-7
There is just too much Tamil in Chennai Express. There I said it. There are long dialogues between actors in Tamil, and while one doe understand what is being conveyed, it is still tedious. This is what it must feel to the rest of India, when they watch Hindi films with an overdose of Punjabi

  •  Times of India -Meena Iyer Rating-7
For what is primarily a Hindi film, there's too much spoken Tamil. There are cleverly written lines that ask you not to underestimate the south because it even plays a crucial role in the coalition government, but for the rest of India, a lot of the dialogue is lost in translation. Subtitles would be in order.

  •  Box Office Capsule -Rating-7
If it is a Shahrukh Khan release then excitement soars to new heights no matter what is the genre or what is the occasion. But after not so great spell in last few years at domestic box office, he teams up with director Rohit Shetty who has mastered box office, this excitement goes

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-8
The season of biggies commences from Eid onwards. And it sets in motion with the global release of CHENNAI EXPRESS. Shah Rukh Khan. Deepika Padukone. Rohit Shetty. UTV. Four formidable entities that translate into the ultimate, unbeatable combination. The timing couldn't be better

  •  One India -Nabanita Rating-6
Least did the 40-year-old Rahul know that wooing the beautiful Meenamma in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (DDLJ) style would land him up in such jeopardy. That was possibly the biggest mistake of his life. But, this mistake was for good, or in fact the best that was about to happen in his life.

  • -Swati Deogire Rating-5
After endless weeks of promotions, Rohit Shetty’s ‘Chennai Express’ makes the last and most important stop at the cinema theaters. The marketing miracle unfolds with Deepika Padukone’s name on the silver screen followed by that of Shah Rukh Khan (a promise he had made in an ad

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-3
"Don't underestimate the intelligence of common man," you literally want to bawl right back at Shah Rukh Khan as he repeats his statement (used excessively in promos) 'don't underestimate the power of common man' for the nth time during the film. Chennai Express maybe the big ticket,

  •  Bollywood Life -Deboshree Ghosh Rating-4
Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express starring Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone looks like a film that was executed while the makers were in a goofy mood. The result, we must confess, has turned out to be nothing less than abysmal. While Shahrukh’s hamming like no one’s watching,

  • -Faisal Saif Rating-7
And the wait is finally over for all the SRK and Chennai Express fans who were waiting for the movie to hit cinemas. Chennai Express has been the most awaited film for various reasons. A special reason which embarked few days back was King Khan’s “Friendship-Hug” to fellow superstar

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-4
Shah Rukh Khan, who's provided enough evidence to convince us that he can do comedy effortlessly (remember 'Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa', 'DDLJ', and 'Main Hoon Na'?), spends a chunk of this film referencing his earlier hits, and bouncing off the walls like the Energizer bunny.

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-4
So it breaks my heart to tell you that Chennai Express left me cold. This hyper, eager-to-please Rahul sorely tested my patience. And after a while, the innumerable references to DDLJ seemed like a lazy shot at siphoning some of the enduring affection we have for that film.

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-4
3500 local prints. 700 overseas prints. The widest Indian release ever. Production budget a shade under 100 crores. 6.75 crore paid preview collections on a Thursday, the highest ever. 100 crore over the weekend? 200+ crore lifetime? 2nd place for 3 Idiots? It's troubling that,
