Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Shetty's need to maintain his characters' romantic heroism constantly grates against his depictions of their ridiculousness."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"A loud, lame-brained romantic comedy from the (very) broad directorial brush of Rohit Shetty, SRK's over-hyped vehicle sees the charismatic but ageing actor badly miscast and easily overshadowed by his leading lady, Deepika Padukone."
‑ Simon Foster, sbs.com.au
"Jump aboard the Chennai Express for a full-on, SRK-fueled joyride."
‑ Priya Joshi, Digital Spy
"The movie chugs along for most of its 2 hours and 20 minutes searching for comedy and characters in a frantically overplotted story."
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"It's just enough of a change of pace for Rohit Shetty to seem like a radical step forward without being so much of one as to be unrecognizable, as it's still funny and exciting, and the visuals pop."
‑ Danny Bowes, RogerEbert.com
"Like the southbound train of the title, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's romantic action-comedy-musical Chennai Express barrels forward with barely a stop to rest."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"This Bollywood farce, dressed in the colourful costumes of a romantic adventure with music, is an oversize comedy and a couple of hours (plus intermission) of sheer escapism"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
