Rajdhani Express

Rating : 1/10
Release Date : 4th January, 2013
Time : 130 minutes
Director, Writer : Ashok Kohli; Music: Lahu-Madhav & Ritesh Nalini
Starring : Leander Paes, Jimmy Shergill, Priyanshu Chatterjee, Gulshan Grover, Sayali Bhagat, Mukesh Rishi

This is a disaster from every angle. Bad direction, terrible plot, awful acting, atrocious art direction, stupid sets, silly songs, daft dubbing, senseless sound effects, muddled music, asinine accents, dippy dialogues and careless camera work. Struggling to find a single redeeming feature in the film, other than it is the debut of a man who’s done the country proud in another arena

The story, if it can be called that, is laughable, crazy, of a man who, at the end of his tether, sick of being called low class, decides to turn to violence and hijacks a train. Thanks to a minister’s parents being on the train, the cops, led by no-nonsense tough guy, Jimmy Shergill, seek to hunt him down. What follows is utter farce and nonsense. With equally bad performances to boot.

Am a bit sad that a lovely train, part of so many of my childhood memories, is the title of such a film. Could win unintentional comedy of the year.

Could have been a good film had it been directed and edited properly. Performance of Gulshan Grover, Jimmy Shergill and Priyanshu Chatterjee are commendable
