Audience Reviews for Chandni Chowk to China

  • Dec 25, 2008
    Absolutely hilarious! Sidhu is a faithful cook in his uncle's food stand, and is always trying to make the best with whatever luck he has. Even if improving his place in life, he rarely gives up. Along with his faithful companion Chopsticks, Sidhu must travel to China to help a village from a horrible tyrant. In the process, he meets Sakhi and her mysterious twin sister, Meow Meow. Tons of laughter! Great dual performances by Deepika. Story plots that centrally coincide with two, or more, countries are always fascinating, and makes the suspense more intriguing. Great cast- Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Ranvir Shorey, Mithun Chakraborty, Gordon Liu, and Roger Yuan. Definitely worthy!

    This is definitely not for everyone, but I really enjoyed it. I love action/comedy combos, even if this went a little overboard sometimes, like the Cosmos Kick and the little whirlwind he made at the end. It would have been better without those outrageous "Kung Fu Hustle" bits, but it was still a great mix. Love the blend of kung fu and big Bollywood musical numbers. Some great action, a gorgeous cast, and a decent story. And I always enjoy a nice 'zero to hero' story.
