Jack (Jackie Chan) is an archaeologist meets Ashmita (Disha Patani), an Indian professor who has got a map of treasures from the Magadha Dynasty in India. Jack and team sets on adventure to seek the treasure. In their expedition, they travel exotic locales along Tibet, Dubai and Rajasthan.
Jack and his team also has to fight Randall (Sonu Sood) who is decendent of Magadh empire. In the process, he also gets tangled in an undercurrent mission. Will Jack succeed in his hunt for treasure and accomplish the secret mission?
As titled indicates, Kung Fu Yoga is an attempt to make a cross-over film with Chinese and Indian flavours. It certainly has lots of Kungfu but negligible Yoga. The film could have been named Kungfu Bollywood instead. It has lots of flashy song and dance sequences. You’ll get to see Jackie Chan doing bhangra with colorfully dressed beauties.
As any Jackie Chan film, Kungfu Yoga has no logic but only fun and stunts. The film opens with a war between Chinese and Indian forces. The film appears more of a travelogue than an adventure. Visually splendid exploring some exoting locations. Terracotta Warriors Museum in Xi’an, an ice cave in China’s Kunlun Mountains, the camel race in Dubai, and the deserts of Rajasthan are exuberant.
It also has back to back action episodes and racy chase sequences. Sonu Sood’s wrestling Vs Jackie Chan’s Kungfu is surprising, otherwise the Bollywood actor doesn’t have his chunk in the film. Jackie Chan is the USP of the film.
The aging superstar delivers what is expected of him, those goofy stunts and silly antics but he was admirable as maintenance man cum coach in Karate Kid. Kungfu Yoga also missing the magic of Chan’s action adventures like Armour Of God, Shangai Noon, Myth etc.
Disha Patani and Amyra Dastur sizzle with adequate glamour.
Jackie Chan Stunts
Bottom-line: Not so adventurous
