Chandni Chowk to China

chandnichowk Chandni Chowk To China is a big, bloated misadventure of a movie with a string of set pieces instead of a plot. There are too many gags, too many action scenes, too many item songs, and too much of everything, in fact. The film’s biggest crime, if you ask me, is that it’s an exercise in excess.Akshay Kumar stars as Sidhu, a down-on-his-luck street-side cook in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk who some Chinese tourists mistake for the reincarnation of their ancient warrior who alone can defend their village against the kung-fu crime-lord Hojo (played by Chinese actor Gordon Liu). Encouraged and abetted by Ranvir Shorey playing con artist Chopstick, Sidhu leaves behind his father (Mithun Chakraborty) and heads off to China, where much chaos ensues.
Inspired liberally from Stephen Chow’s Kung Fu Hustle, the comedy in Chandni Chowk To China, although largely slapstick, is enjoyable for the sheer good-natured goofiness Akshay brings to his character. I’m reminded of that scene in the aircraft where he repeatedly attempts to slam shut a stubborn overhead locker, or then that ingenious song sequence in which he fobs off the bad guys in his bumbling, drunken state. The film’s first hour is lighthearted and simple and most of the humor’s derived from Sidhu’s clumsiness and ineptitude. It’s when the film enters its second hour that the cracks begin to show.The track involving the estranged twin sisters — both played by Deepika Padukone — and their reunion with their beggar father is too convoluted and distracting, and it takes away from the film’s central story.

LTTE usig Tamil as a shield

Accusing the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eeelam of using the Tamils as a shield in the war against the Sri Lankan army, AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa rejected the argument that the outfit was the sole representative of the Tamils.“The killing of the innocent Tamils can be avoided if the LTTE allows them safe passage,” she told reporters at the party headquarters here on Saturday. She argued that the Sri Lankan army’s intention was not to kill the Tamils. “But the killing of innocents is inevitable in a war. No country is an exception.” She even took exception to the usage, ‘Eelam Tamils,’ saying it could not be used since there was no separate Eelam. Instead, she preferred the word, ‘Sri Lankan Tamils.’As for the demand for India’s intervention to ensure a ceasefire, Ms. Jayalalithaa said there was a limit to how far one country could interfere in the internal affairs of another country. While her party was for securing the rights of the Tamils on a par with those of the Sinhalese, the fact remained that the LTTE was a terrorist organisation.“Many countries have declared the LTTE a terrorist organisation. It has been banned in India.” Ms. Jayalalithaa said the fast observed by Viduthalai Chiruthaikal Katchi (VCK) leader Thol Thirumavalavan, demanding a ceasefire in Sri Lanka, was a drama.
Asked about the support extended by the MDMK and the CPI, two allies of the AIADMK, to Mr.Thirumavalavan, she said there was no compulsion that the partners in an alliance should have consensus on all issues.
