Right in the beginning, a minor character asks Sidhu: “Are you stupid?” He nods. That’s prescience.

Warner Bros second foray into Bollywood is a brainless masala potboiler.

Insufferable. Burdened with insipid plotting and lame comedy.
May 18, 2009
Tries to juggle Bollywood musical with martial arts action and slapstick comedy and fails at all three.

This is a fun movie, as well as an interesting peek into what entertains audiences in a different culture.

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.
March 1, 2009
An energetic, if uneven, movie masala whose ingredients include broad comedy, fists of fury, dark family secrets and musical numbers.
January 28, 2009
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

A wholly missed opportunity to broaden the Hindi film fan base in America.
January 23, 2009
Half Bollywood, Half Chinese, all nonsense spectacle. Nikhil Advani's sprawling action-comedy has the feel of great ambition designed by committee.
January 22, 2009
Any hopes of stylistic experimentation or genre fusion are quickly dashed and it becomes evident that this is simply two films: the first half singing, dancing Bollywood and the second a middle-of-the-road martial arts flick.
January 22, 2009
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.
January 22, 2009
...so energetically off-the-wall that the sheer novelty alone makes it entertain much of the way.
January 21, 2009
Chandni Chowk to China never captures our imagination the way those twin Tarantino films did, mostly thanks to a lead character who's too dumb to root for, much less believe in.
January 20, 2009
Results are wonky, with its detriments mainly attributable to its Indian influence.
January 16, 2009
Chandni Chowk to China is Bollywood's all-singing, all-dancing, all-Hindi bid to conquer America.
January 16, 2009
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.
January 16, 2009
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.
