Kung Fu Yoga Review
Rating :- 1.5/5 Reviewed by: Rajeevmasand Site: CNN News18
Sadly for us Jackie Chan himself, whose winning cocktail of go-for-broke physical comedy and life-risking stunt work turned him from a local Chinese star into a beloved Hollywood action hero, appears to be in autopilot mode here. His once impeccable timing is no longer split-second, and gone is that scrappy underdog charm that endeared him to the fans.The only time I had a good laugh was watching his expressions fly as he sportingly shook a leg in the film’s big Bollywood-style dance number. Kung Fu Yoga is a disappointment for Jackie Chan fans. The actor deserves better, and so do we.

A bit of the film is set in Dubai only to give us a car chase which features an unexpected back seat guest for Chan. Roars and crashes ensue, but it’s all a big yawn. The only time this Oriental Indiana Jones flickers to life is in an item song with the entire cast and lots of extras. It proves two things: that the clearly ageing Chan can shake a leg. And that song and dance, especially if it is a Farah Khan special, still rules.

Kung Fu Yoga further embarrasses itself by assuming there’s still an audience for India as a country of attention-seeking snakes, rope tricks mid-air suspended sadhus and royalty that looks straight out of a garishly-dressed mannequin off S V Road. Worn down by shabby aesthetics and absurd mumbo jumbo, Kung Fu Yoga assaults both senses and soul. Not a combination you want to try.

Some of the action sequences are shot well and will keep you entertained.There’s nothing interesting about Kung Fu Yoga. It is completely avoidable for a theater watch.Kung Fu Yoga has a plot that is completely yawn worthy. It’s like watching a spoof of Nicholas Cage’s National Treasure. The film’s story lacks intelligence and the dialogue is so forced that it seems like a history reading class.Overall, even the pace of the film is quite slow. It only picks up in the action bits.If the makers were trying to justify the title ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ with one dialogue and a stretching trick, it’s just sad. Another lost opportunity on truly respecting India’s Yoga connection.

If you have grown up watching Jackie Chan movies and loved him more for his comic timing and endearing goofiness or his expert kung fu, Kung Fu Yoga will leave you with a feeling of sadness. If only the film were equipped with anything resembling a coherent plot. There are no thrills, or spills. None of the joyous laughter we have come to expect from a Jackie Chan. We also see a glimpse of the old Jackie Chan in a hair-raising car chase complete with a lion. So, if you have an uncontrollable desire to watch Jackie Chan — or, for some reason, Sonu Sood — we’d still recommend Shanghai Noon or Dabangg, because this attempt to put the two together is just not worth 102 minutes of your life.

At one point, Sonu Sood’s Randall is frustrated and says through his gritted teeth, “Don’t bore me…” as Chan’s character blabbers about morality. The line in itself is a short, crisp review of the movie. The movie begins so abruptly that you feel like you’ve started watching episode no. three of a show by mistake. Director Stanley Tong unloads a ton of information on you in the first ten minutes, leaving you half-confused and already half-disinterested.f you’re going for the Kung Fu, chances are you’ll end up in a meditative state instead.

Jackie Chan is one of the rare action film stars to grapple—and sometimes successfully adjust—to his old age. “Kung Fu Yoga,” his latest star vehicle, re-teams him with writer/director Stanley Tong, the filmmaker who helmed classic Chan films like “Supercop” and “Rumble in the Bronx. “Kung-Fu Yoga” has some good slapstick comedy and adequate fight scenes, but not nearly enough to justify sticking it out for 107 excruciating minutes. In the meantime, go see “Railroad Tigers,” Chan’s recent war-movie action-adventure. It’s got much better action choreography, a stronger supporting cast, neat trains, and quips that aren’t totally cringeworthy. You can skip “Kung Fu Yoga,” trust me.

There is no way of knowing if Jackie Chan was tempted to plunge into this disorienting whirl of a film by the chance to dance to a peppy Bollywood beat, but he sure does a swell job of the hand gestures and body feints that the routine demands. A dizzyingly fast-paced but musty mish-mash of martial arts, stunts and comedy, Kung Fu Yoga isn’t the kind of film that has any time to pause and ponder. Earlier in the film, in a car chase across Dubai, Chan’s character is trapped in the driver’s seat of an SUV with a lion breathing down his neck. While the man escapes without a scratch despite the many crashes, leaps and thuds, the poor four-legged creature, at the end of the ordeal, emerges from the vehicle and throws up on the road. Yikes!
