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.

Trivia

The fight on the Great Wall was shot in seven days. It was originally planed to be shot in 20 days but the Chinese government would only allow for seven days for tourism purposes. Those seven days were extremely busy; Akshay Kumar, who usually shoots for only 10 hours a day, had to shoot for 18 hours in chilly conditions on the Wall. See more »

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 »

Big disappointment from Akshay Kumar
16 January 2009 | by (Delhi, India) – See all my reviews

I am a great fan of Akshay Kumar. I booked the tickets for the 1st paid premier show for this movie. But I was seriously disappointed.

Comedy scenes wont make you laugh, by the time action scenes come u wont be interested. The movie doesn't excite you much and doesn't do anything to keep the audience glued to their seats. Their is no suspense, Deepika Padukone doesn't help either. Spoils the excitement as and when she appears on the screen. Their was so much fuss about the action scenes involving her, but those scenes has already been shown in all the trailers. The movie is very predictable. Very stupid at times.

I will recommend this movie only if u don't have to pay for it and you have a lot of spare time.

They are already planing a sequel. God bless the producers.
