The enthralling music is by Vishal-Shekhar.

Though disapproved by critics as a film unworthy of Shahrukh Khan it has broken all records at the box-office.

It seems the hard work of this self made star and the entire team has paid off as it is a thoroughly entertaining film. The producers Ronnie Screwvala, Gauri Khan, Karim Morani and Siddharth Roy Kapur are laughing all the way to the bank. Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone back together after five years have stamped the final seal of approval upon Rohit Shetty’s already glittering achievements.

Chennai Express makes SRK again the Badshah of Bollywood after his stint of two decades. The film was extensively promoted before release on August 9. The business response to the film Chennai Express has made everyone’s endeavor for the film worthy.

Released at a record number of screens across India the film grossed Rs.100 crore within the first three days of its release.

The film is made in an ideal Hindi masala movie style which is to be enjoyed at the theatres and forgotten about later. It is a very different Shahrukh from his romantic comfort zone and Deepika makes it watch able for a number of times. The over the top stunts that are a special feature of any Rohit Shetty film makes the entire environment highly amusing. For now it seems that SRK’s Chennai Express is unstoppable and set to create history at the box office.
