The movie opened to a spectacular view of The Great Wall of China where the warrior Liu Shengh dies fighting. It went downhill from there. Siddu (Akshay Kumar) chops veggies at Chandni Chowk desperately hoping for a life of grandeur as his Dada (Mithun Chakraborty) tells him that his destiny is in his hands. Siddu meets the Feng-Shastra guru Chopstick (Ranvir Shorey) on his quest for overnight fame & riches. Two Chinese men and Chopstick who wants a free ride to China convince him he is the re-incarnated war hero and they take off to China to fight the tyrant Hojo. Sakhi (Deepika Padukone) is in China looking for her long lost twin Meow Meow. There's utter chaos as their paths meet. Akshay Kumar's funnies hit the right note occasionally while he was in his element during the later scenes where his skills as a martial arts expert came into focus. Mithun Chakraborty, though with limited scenes, was great. Deepika Padukone as Meow Meow in a catwoman-ish outfit was sleek, feline and gorgeous if nothing else. Ranvir Shorey's halo-ed and horn-ed conscience apart, he was utterly wasted as he spent most of the movie looking miserable. The first part of the movie is overdone in the name of comedy. The second part is well paced out punctuated with laughs, tears and kung fu. The movie had it's good moments, no doubt. Maybe, it was mostly the hype that was built up that made the expectations set, fall apart like a house of cards. Oh! And there might be a sequel to it.
