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.

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.

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.

Results are wonky, with its detriments mainly attributable to its Indian influence.

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.

In fact, at two hours and 34 minutes, CC2C is too much by a half: too much dancing and fighting and too much footage of the Great Wall of China.

Chandni Chowk to China is an energetic mess.
January 16, 2009
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.
January 16, 2009
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.
January 16, 2009
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.
January 16, 2009
So, here's the deal. Don't send us any more Chandni Chowk movies, and we won't send you anything with Adam Sandler.

If only it were as much fun as its trailer!
