Chandni Chowk to China Summary
Sidhu, a simple cook from Chandni Chowk, longs to escape his dreary existence and looks for shortcuts with everything from astrologers and tarot readers to a magic potato, believing in anything and everything except himself. His fate changes when two strangers from China claim him to be a reincarnation of a war hero from the past and enlist him to come back with them to their village in China. His opportunistic translator, Chopstick, tells Sidhu of the women, wine and princely existence that await him in foreign lands; what Chopstick doesn't tell him is that he has become the village's best hope to take on the vicious gangster Hojo, who has been terrorizing them. Along the way, Sidhu meets Sakhi, a stunning TV model who has embarked on her own adventure to pay homage to the land of her birth, her dead father and twin. Soon, Sidhu realizes he is in way over his head and faces imminent defeat without a miracle. Only at his lowest point does he meet a Kung Fu master who can help him find his inner hero, set the village free, and pursue the love of his life.
