Chowk to China
Chowk To China, the first ever Bollywood Kungfu comedy takes you
on a madcap Journey from the by-lanes of Chandni Chowk in Delhi,
to Shanghai, the Great Wall and rural China, marrying in its
wake to hilarious gags, breathtaking action, spectacular
locations and heart stirring emotions.
Our protagonist Sidhu (Akshay Kumar) is the lowest on the totem
pole, cutting vegetables at a roadside food stall in Chandni
Chowk in Delhi. He longs to escape his dreary existence and
looks for shortcuts- with astrologers, tarot readers and fake
fakirs - basically believing anything except himself, despite
his father figure Dada’s (Mithun Chakraborty) best efforts.
His redeeming moment arrives when two strangers from China claim
him as a reincarnation of a war hero in the past and takes him
to China. Sidhu now dreams of wine, women, and a princely
existence in foreign lands. Thanks to the devious translator, a
conman by the name Chopstick (Ranvir Shorey), little does he
know that he is being taken to the Promised Land to rid the
Chinese village of the vicious smuggler Hojo (Gordon Liu).
So, Sidhu blissfully sets forth to China with Chopstick who
instigates dreams of a delicious future and forgets to reveal
the perils which await him. Along the way he meets Sakhi (Deepika
Padukone), Ms. Tele Shoppers Media (Ms. TSM) who has embarked on
a journey to pay homage to the land of her birth and her dead
father and twin.
Initially, Sidhu through a series of lucky coincidences manages
to sidestep being beaten by Hojo’s men but finally Hojo catches
up with him and exposes him as the country buffoon that he
really is. Sidhu has the fire of revenge in his belly and finds
the one man who will make him a Kungfu expert and set the
village free. Armed with his Sifu (master), faith in himself and
the love of the fair Sakhi Sidhu sets forth to conquer all!
