Chandni Chowk To China — Movie review
Posted January 17, 2009on:
Today i went for the much hyped warner bros movie “Chandni Chowk to China”.
The movies and the action scenes are great in this new age bollywood movie . The Actions scens are taken in a great style. But the action scenes lacked a directors touch. I didnt feel like having such unrealistic action scenes suited the movie storyline. I felt the actions scenes were like a hump on the back of the movie.
The comedy scenes were mostly good and fairly new. Akshay and deepika has done a good job. But the director Nikhil Advani failed to make a boredomless real of 160 mintues, many a times the film made me look at my watch.
Their comment was
“We want to protect this film as much as we do with our other films,” said Richard Fox, executive vice president, Warner Bros International, “Warner Bros is very particular about copyright. We are also fighting on another front; when we hear that producers in India are trying to remake our films without permission, we have been taking ads in the newspapers, telling them they have to talk to us first.”
Mr Richard Fox please try to Get a copy of 1992 released Malayalam movie YODHA(Starring mohanlal, directed by santhosh sivan) . The Story Line of movies are similar and YODHA had a far more realistic and better comedy and actions scenes.
In YODHA Mohanlal goes to Nepal to save Rimpoche and buddhist community from villain, learns martial arts and kills the villain. In CC2C akshay goes to china to save a village from the villain, learn kungfu and saves the Village. The Movie yodha was released 17 years before CC2C and after seeing CC2C i feel YODHA is better than CC2C.
I don’t know if there is any other films which has come out with similar story line.
My rating for CC2C 2/10
and a danger note to end the film “TO BE CONTINUED”
