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.

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
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 16, 2009
Chandni Chowk to China is Bollywood's all-singing, all-dancing, all-Hindi bid to conquer America.
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.
January 16, 2009
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.
January 16, 2009
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.
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
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.
January 16, 2009
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.
January 16, 2009
To appreciate this scenic spectacle requires a leap of faith that will test even die-hard Bollywood fans.
January 16, 2009
If you can get into the frenetic rhythm of the thing, it has its charms.
January 16, 2009
The first-ever Bollywood kung fu comedy qualifies as deliriously and endearingly bizarre.
January 16, 2009
This Indian/Chinese cinematic hybrid is likable and entertaining but overlong and occasionally hokey.
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
If only it were as much fun as its trailer!
