Critic Reviews for Chandni Chowk To China

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (29)

Half Bollywood, Half Chinese, all nonsense spectacle. Nikhil Advani's sprawling action-comedy has the feel of great ambition designed by committee.

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.

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

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.

Chandni has martial- arts montages and Bollywood song-and-dance numbers. As tacky as the latter are, they're the sweet -- and only? -- draw of the movie. They also give this slight comedy-adventure its epic and unearned length.

If Chandni Chowk to China were a person, it would need Valium.

Audience Reviews for Chandni Chowk To China

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!
