Chandni Chowk to China

When his Chinese friend and Philosopher, Chopstick, cons him into believing that he is the reincarnation of Liu Sheung, a slain Chinese revolutionary, Sidhu takes it upon himself to travel to the Zhange district where he will be forced to confront a deadly female assassin by the name of Suzy; be befriended by a semi-crazed beggar; and must face humiliation and possible death at the hands of the virtually indestructible Hojo.

The only wonder of the Earth.

Which can be seen

even from the space.

The Great Wall of China.

There was only one reason

to build this wall,

The Defense of the Country.

Enemies kept on attacking.

He kept on fighting.

The biggest warrior of

the history of China.

Lou Shang

Today this wall is only an

attraction for tourists.

And the warriors are reduced

to the statues on the roads.

Now the enemy has returned.


Hojo ruled this village.

He knew there's a treasure

buried in this village.

He kept on selling that

to the foreigners.

The game Hojo was playing with

the villagers,

had only a defeat for them.

Only the death.

Only the helplessness.

In hard times like this a blind

man looks at the sky.

But only those get help

who have courage to reach it.

They were seeking the light.

To eliminate the darkness

of their lives.

The key to their hope was

in their own past.

Their centuries old savior

has come back.

He is re-born.

Lou Shang.

In some other guise.

In some other country.

In a country where the Lord

Buddha was born.

In a city which is still

standing strong

even it got attacked

for seven times.

Near a Fort.

A fort who's strength shows

the courage of it's warriors.

Near a road-crossing, who's lights

are brighter then sunlight.

Under all such great things...

Their savior is waiting for them.


You are no more, son.

Where are you going to?

I bought lottery of 50 million.

I spent 100 rupees on that.

I asked forjust one favor.

Just one favor and you can't

do one thing.

You just keep on sitting

like this.

Just once Lord.

Just once get the lottery.

One, one, six, six.

I've won the lottery.

Keep it with you.

I got it, noodles with bread.

Here put it down.

I'm the only fool who keeps

on working like a dog.

Shut up.


Do you see this magical

taveez ( amulet)?

You'll get lucky with it.

It's a unique magical object.

Just for you.

Forjust... How much do

you have in your pocket?


How much do you have

in your pocket?

I'll have to check that.

Only 2 notes.

Damn you.

Give it to me.

But shall I become


Stupid! Just put it on.

After that you'll be up

and the world will be down.


I wish I had become something,

your menu would've finished.

Yes, even since you've come

I'm surviving.

Else I would've been begging

in front of the mosque.

I know everything.

You don't know a thing.

Had I worn that taveez,

I would've been very rich.

Hey Sidhu.

You are too naive.

Don't get into schemes

of such frauds.

Our luck in not in this.

It's in here.

Do the hard work.

- Hard work give only sweat.

Not the money.

I need money. And for

money I need luck.

And for luck you need

hard work.

Don't take out your anger

on that.

It's our fate that we have

to work everyday to survive.

Don't make hollow plans.

No miracle will happen.

How any miracle will happen

when I didn't wear taveez.


Ganeshji appeared

in potato.


Ganeshji appeared in potato.

Hail Ganesh, hail Ganesh.

Will you tell us why Ganeshji

chose a potato to appear on?

Don't talk just prostate

and go out.

Weekly money?

- Money?

My money.

I knew Bappa will send

you on time.

Just be patient with me.

Don't smash eggs.

You too are here?

You always follow me

in every wedding.

Don't spare him.

Beat him

Beat him.

I'm the bridegroom.

Why are you beating me?

It's my wedding today.

You're ruining me.

Remember one thing.

You won't find any vegetable

cutter better then me.

Even you search the

whole Chandni Chowk.

I'm best Mughlai...

Where did he go?
