When you have Jackie Chan, you expect a hell lot of things from a movie. The charm of Jackie Chan is enough to watch the entire movie. This is what exactly happened with Kung Fu Yoga. It is only watching worthy when Jackie Chan is on screen, rest it is entirely yawning worthy.
Kung Fu Yoga Review
Jack, a Chinese archaeologist, comes to India with the help of Indian Archaeologist Ashmita (Disha Patani) to unveil the hidden treasure of Magadha. Jack agrees to help Ashmita and lands to India with his two assistants. But while seeking for the long thrived treasure, they have to fight various opponents in terms of animals and Randall (Sonu Sood). Jackie Chan looks great even while shaking legs on Bollywood numbers. But apart from it, there is not much the movie gives. The title specifically does not seem to be apt. Just to give a Chinese Indian merger, the title has a Chinese and Indian word, rest there is no connection with what is going on in the film.
There is no proper flow of sequences in the movie, the only action then some dialogues and again action start. India is shown as a cliché animal possessor. Audiences will surely miss the witty side of Jackie Chan in the movie as his other movies do. Audiences might feel the film to be going on at a slow pace and starts actively only during the action scenes.
Kung Fu Yoga – Jackie Chan is the savior
Looking at the performances, it’s Jackie Chan not the best movie of all. We all have seen Jackie Chan carrying out his heaviest roles in a much easier way, but this is a sheer disappointment. Disha Patani and Amyra Dastur have decent roles and performances in the movie as well. The major disappointment in the film is Sonu Sood. It seems he is actually acting but over the top acting. He appears to be horrible in some of the scenes, and the movie is among his worst performances. The Chan’s assistants played by Aarif Rahman and Yixing Zhang are quite funny and good to watch.
Kung Fu Yoga vs Jolly LLB 2
Directed by Stanley Tong, Kung Fu Yoga is an unimpressive and Patchy movie. The only exciting scene in the film is of Jackie Chan and Lion in the car seat having car chases and pun. Rest the film is dull and boring. Some of the scenes having witty dialogues are good, but Chan’s Kung Fu Yoga could have been a lot more enjoyable had it have got the great script and story plot.
Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 will release on 10 Feb 2017. This will definitely affect the collection of Kung Fu Yoga. Anyways you can get Jolly LLB 2 movie download in best print from here.
