Chennai Express: It's No Monsoon Wedding

What does a Bollywood misstep look like? For the answer to this question shimmy on over to the multiplex and buy a ticket for this disappointment.

Sure, it has all the bell and whistles: A gorgeous leading lady, splashy colors, energetic song and dance numbers and a twisty rom-com plot. In fact it could have been a winner if forty minutes had been left on the cutting room floor.

CH clocks in at 2 hours and 21 minutes and contains many repetitive scenes. If you decide to go, you'll want to sit in an aisle seat. A lengthy trip to the concession stand mid movie might do the trick.
