Chennai Express

Director Rohit Shetty’s ‘Chennai Express’ never made any promises other than to deliver a lot of laughs and some fun moments with Deepika Padukone (playing Meena) & Shahrukh Khan (playing Rahul, of you musta heard the name already fame). Now, here’s the thing. Even regular followers of The Vigil Idiot tend to call me too nitpicky & hair-splitty at times. And I’m pretty sure I agree. But I’d still like to think that I understand how movies are supposed to be judged. Which is why I totally get how a ‘Golmaal’ and a ‘Ship of Theseus’ can both get rated 3.5/5 by critics I trust. It’s because both films deliver on what they promise, right? One gives you laughs and the other gives you something to talk about when you’re in need of a smart sounding conversation-starter. So, keeping that in mind, you know that it doesn’t come from a place of nitpickiness or snobbery when I say that, even for a Rohit Shetty and SRK production, this film sucks donkey balls!
