Chennai Express - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Yes, I agree, coming from a SRK non-devout, Rohit Shetty non-fan and a non-believer of the nonsense genre, this review means nothing. Yet, for what it's wroth watch Chennai Express if and only if you have conceded that you have nothing better to do.
