About Chennai Express

Rahul buys a ticket on the Chennai Express with the intention of immersing his grandfather’s ashes in Rameshwaram. As he attempts to deboard, he observes a young woman rushing to board it. He assists her and four other passengers in boarding the moving train, but the train departs before he can deboard.

Rahul attempts to flirt with the woman, who responds by singing Hindi cinema song parodies and says that the four men are attempting to kidnap her. She is fleeing Tangaballi's forced marriage (Nikitin Dheer). Durgeshwara Azhagusundaram (Sathyaraj), her father, is a formidable boss of the local mafia in Tamil Nadu. Rahul is taken captive and they are stuck together.

Meena eventually realizes she has fallen in love with Rahul. Rahul also realizes that he has fallen in love with Meena and attempts to persuade him to accept and honor his daughter's wish. He also expresses his feelings for Meena. Rahul informs Tangaballi and his goons that he is prepared to fight this time. Rahul is seriously damaged in the fight that follows, but he triumphs.
