Kung Fu Panda Rediscovered
Yesterday I got a chance to see Chandni Chowk To China, and until now I m cursing myself for watching it. To keep it simple, Chandni Chowk To China is a good example of “How to make a worst movie from a good script”. Yes, the script is very promising and it could have been taken in a marvelous way. But eventually everything went wrong in the movie, the presence of the Chinese stars went waste. This movie has a strong resemblance with the animated movie “Kung Fu Panda”.
Well there is nothing new to say about Akshay Kumar in this movie. Now this kind of acting is becoming a routine for him. He should understand that the public is now looking for variety. The scenes which the crew was thinking that were too funny, were actually too boring. The movie was just a calculated combination of some well known Hindi movie formulas. But there was a terrible mistake in the calculation.
Now lets come to Deepikia Padukone. Well, she was OK, especially in her actions scenes. Other than that she was just used to drag the scenes and to remind us of the old “Seeta Aur Geetha” formula. The caliber of Mithun and Ranvir was just wasted and neither of them had any large impact on the movie. None of the Chinese crew were used properly. Even though Gordon Liu was able to make a sadistic impact on us. But Roger Yaun was rather funny in his role with his hindi accent.
Well there is nothing much to say about the movie. But I must mention the best part of the movie. It was the trailing credits song. This is not the first time when Akshay Kumar is on the trailing credit vocals. But it was really the best part of the movie because it was when I realized that the torture was actually over. Even the songs were not well choreographed. Tere Naina song is off course an exception to that. It showed great creativity.
This is the second movie in a row for Warner Bros that has gone all wrong, the first one being Saans Bahu Aur Sensex. They must well be careful from now on when investing in Bollywood. By this time they would have learnt that just big banners and names will not satisfy the Indian Audience.
Plus: Hmmmm…. Ah.. Hmmm cant think of any, may be the songs without video….
Minus: Well… I am planning to write a book on that 🙂
