Sold as a groundbreaking convergence of Asia's leading cinematic influences -- kung fu flicks and Bollywood extravaganzas -- it can only be termed genre-mashup overkill.

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.

Children and undiscriminating adults may enjoy the flurry of eye-catching activities that storm incessantly across the screen for its 2 1/2 hours, but the reigning stupidity of the enterprise is liable to tire anyone else in attendance.

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

The movie's ostensible distinction is its coupling of Bollywood and kung fu, but it's really a self-realization course dressed up as kinetic comedy.

So, here's the deal. Don't send us any more Chandni Chowk movies, and we won't send you anything with Adam Sandler.

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.

This is a pretty entertaining work for the most part despite its unevenness and for those who have never experienced an authentic Bollywood film before, it will serve as a perfectly good introduction to that style of filmmaking.

Spectacular stunts and special effects cannot save this fusion of Indian and Chinese culture from coming across as a movie with little originality or wit.
Full Review | Original Score: C

Chandni Chowk to China supposedly is the 'the first-ever Bollywood kung-fu comedy,' which makes me pray fervently that it will also be the last.
