CHENNAI EXPRESS is a Hindi and Tamil language action comedy. It stars Shah Rukh Khan as a Delhi boy who ends up on the wrong train and falls for Meena, a South Indian rural girl, who is controlled by her domineering father.

Violence

The film contains infrequent scenes of moderate violence, most notably an extended sequence in which the hero fights his main rival and some thugs. This includes people being kicked and punched, as well as people being hit with sticks and a shovel, often shown in slow motion. At one point, a bottle and a metal bucket are smashed onto a man's head, and a sickle is held to a man's throat. There is some sight of bloody injuries to the hero's face and body. However, the blows are not very realistic and there isn't much emphasis on injury.

The film also contains Hindi and English uses of mild bad language ('saalay', 'shit', 'bloody', 'bullshit').
