What Would Toto Watch?

Chandni Chowk to China is a fresh, invigorating mashup of Bollywood and Asian martial arts epics. Then, it stays around a good half hour too long. Way too long.

An energetic, if uneven, movie masala whose ingredients include broad comedy, fists of fury, dark family secrets and musical numbers.

Packs enough entertaining moments in its 154-minute running time to whet our appetite for more films from the subcontinent, but its sloppy audio and low-rent visual effects will likely prove distracting to American audiences accustomed to more polished fa

If Chandni Chowk to China is any indication, a combination of Bollywood and kung-fu movies is something the world needed without even realizing it.

...so energetically off-the-wall that the sheer novelty alone makes it entertain much of the way.

Chandni Chowk to China is Bollywood's all-singing, all-dancing, all-Hindi bid to conquer America.

Charlotte Observer

Chandni Chowk is the kind of madness to which you surrender unconditionally or not at all. You'll find the trans-Asian journey from the market street in Delhi to the tyrannized village in China bewitching or bewildering, with little room in between.

Chandni Chowk isn't going to appeal to those not already entertained by Bollywood and kung-fu movie clichés. But it could turn the charismatic Kumar into a global star, making the prescribed happy ending even sweeter for Warner Bros.

If Chandni Chowk To China is not exactly original, it steals wisely, resulting in a movie that moves and entertains (even if it's too long by at least a half-hour).

Think of the title of this Bollywood/martial-arts mashup as a riff on North by Northwest. And like that preeminent American entertainment, CC2C is stylish, slick and full of fun.

Chandi Chowk is fun but somewhat exhausting, with several elaborate production numbers, a bullet-proof umbrella that also serves as a parachute, a magical potato -- plus a running time just over 2 1/2 hours, which is short by Bollywood standards.

After a while the film chills out just enough, getting by on the sheer force of its grandeur and good humor.

Long story short: There was plenty that I liked about Chandni. But I also couldn't wait for it to end.

The first-ever Bollywood kung fu comedy qualifies as deliriously and endearingly bizarre.

This Indian/Chinese cinematic hybrid is likable and entertaining but overlong and occasionally hokey.

Film Journal International

Brimming with talent, technically masterful on many levels, this overwrought Bollywood/martial-arts caper should please fans of both genres ready to be happily assaulted for two-and-a-half hours.
