Trivia

The film's music composing duo, Vishal-Shekhar, were under the impression that they were the only musicians working on Chennai Express. Meanwhile, Honey Singh was asked by the film director to perform in the promotional song of "Lungi Dance". When rumours surfaced about Honey Singh's involvement turned out to be true and the composers felt cheated. Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani did not promote the film's music nor attended the film's promos. See more »

Goofs

When the Marine Police bring Rahul back to Komban Village, Meenamma's 2 brothers: Chinna and Periya speak to the Police and Rahul in Hindi. Hence they should have also understood the Hindi song-conversation between Rahul and Meenamma in the train. See more »

Quotes

Rahul: I will sleep on the bed because I am your spouse, your husband, your mate and don't they say that there is no business like show-her business. Come on Meenamma let us sleep-amma.

Don't Miss The Chennai Express Train
9 August 2013 | by VikasBansalSee all my reviews

King Khan is presenting you Chennai Express on EID festival, the movie packed with Action, Comedy, Romance as usual which has been the bench mark of SRK's movies but this time love story has been given typical south Indian flavor. Movie revolves around completely over SRK and Deepika who are scared of Deepika's father who is don in his town. The movie has been excellently crafted with so many punch lines over which you can't stop laughing, brilliant performances by SRK and Deepika in particular who has given her best performance till date, adapting to south Indian accent wasn't easy in her dialogs and expressions but deepika has done this with so much ease, she looks so natural her in emotional scenes as well, Vishal-shekhar's music with south Indian touch also keeps audience on their toes with songs like Kashmir main and Tittli already on public's lips. Rohit shetty's direction was too good, excellently captured outdoor shots of chennai and kerala. Simply superb movie, overall a complete family entertainer package for the audience. My verdict to this 3.5/5 Stars.
