Consensus: A thin plot is disguised by high octane dancing and action in this Bollywood crossover comedy.

Half Bollywood, Half Chinese, all nonsense spectacle. Nikhil Advani's sprawling action-comedy has the feel of great ambition designed by committee.

Chandni Chowk isn't going to appeal to those not already entertained by Bollywood and kung-fu movie clichés. But it could turn the charismatic Kumar into a global star, making the prescribed happy ending even sweeter for Warner Bros.
