Storyline

Based in Delhi's Chandni Chowk, orphaned Sidhu is adopted by the owner of Bajrang Bali Parathas, known simply as Dada. Years later Sidhu has grown up and is an expert at slicing vegetables. When his Chinese friend and Philosopher, Chopstick, cons him into believing that he is the reincarnation of Liu Sheung, a slain Chinese revolutionary, Sidhu takes it upon himself to travel to the Zhange district where he will be forced to confront a deadly female assassin by the name of Suzy; be befriended by a semi-crazed beggar; and must face humiliation and possible death at the hands of the virtually indestructible Hojo.

Goofs

Towards the beginning of the film the narrator mentions that the 'The Great Wall of China" is the only man made object visible from Space. However, it has been scientifically proven that for a human being to be able to see "The Great Wall of China" from Space a resolution of 7.7 times better than normal vision would be required, making that statement an impossibility See more »

Same formula, but a lot worse this time !!
16 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I was going to watch this movie, I was just hoping that Akshay Kumar has not used the same formula again which he has been using in his recent movies - where he is a stupid, thick, ill fated guy who everyone hates, but still he makes the audience laugh due to the comical nature of the character. And then something completely unexpected happens which changes his life and he becomes a real Indian movie hero. This movie has also got the same old formula, but this time, the comedy in the beginning is by far the worst in his last few movies. Specially, the constant use of vulgar jokes (like breaking his balls or eggs, threatening to put a wooden stick into someone from behind, etc) don't help at all. Deepika has looked stunning in both the roles she has played. But apart from that, its all the same as "Welcome" and "Singh is King". The makers have tried to show some senseless and boring comedy. For example, Akshay gets away from the attack of about 25-30 enemies, completely unaware of them during dancing in one of the songs. Also, too many fighting sequences are just over the top. In short, the movie is a complete disappointment!!
