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

It also gives a nod to Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai (1954) (as well as its Hollywood remake, The Magnificent Seven (1960)), which is about Japanese villagers hiring a group of swordsmen to fight off rampaging bandits. See more »

Goofs

For multiple times the name of the "legendary warrior" was shown as Liu Sheng. But in the center of the village, there is a statue of him, and his name is inscribed to be Liu Qing. Close pronunciation, but very, very different when written down. See more »

Chadni Chowk to bogus land
16 January 2009 | by sayan-mitra2008See all my reviews

Just watched the 1st day 1st show of Chandni Chowk to China, and seriously i think it was a waste if time & money. The film action sequence is straight out of Kung Fu hustle but not as good as it. The only thing to watch in the whole movie was Akshay Kumar. He is funny as always & there are a lot of hilarious moments u will die laughing on seeing. But i am disappointed on the techniques used in the movie- the use of wires is very bogus. The old Chinese movies of Jet Li & Jackie Chan was more fun to watch than this. There is no connection to the real world here all things was shown as if magical. Finally must say watch this movie if are a fan of Akshay Kumar and if u love his comedy.
