Temple in Chennai.

So, what has poor ole Chennai done to deserve this dubious honor? Lonely Planet describes it as lacking Mumbai's prosperity, Delhi's history or Bangalore's buzz. Even the movie stars are "not that hot." And Lonely Planet don't want you to think that they are being generous!
I can't comment too much, because I've only briefly visited Chennai once. However, I have expat friends there, and they're convinced they would much rather live elsewhere in India -- such as in Mumbai!
What do you think? Is Chennai charming or not? Is it your most hated Indian city? Why?
