Jackie Chan plays an archaeologist, Jack, in this Sino-Indian co-production where an Indian professor, Ashmita (Disha Patani), comes to him with a map of treasures from the Magadha Dynasty in India, Jack and his assistants decide to seek it out. Their adventure takes them from one exotic destination to another, pits them against wolves in Tibet, a lion in Dubai, hungry hyenas in Rajasthan and enemies of the human kind, equipped with blazing guns and the chasing is taken phenomenally. Watch the rest of the movie to know whether Chan got the treasure.
Stanley Tong had made the direction with different aspect in his mind, but the making wasn't so good. Jackie Chan, Sonu Sood, Disha Patani, Amyra Dastur, Yixing Zhang, Aarif Rahman have acted well and 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. The movie has more action scenes than Yoga.
Apart from a vague mention of a breathing technique, the film has no connection whatsoever with yoga either. Aarif Rahman who plays Jones Lee and Yixing Zhang who plays Xiaoguang, even Amyra Dastur’s Kyra, make the film a bit more tolerable to watch the movie. The cinematography work is made excellently without any thrilling scenes.
Kung Fu Yoga is an upgrade of Jackie Chan's 2005 film The Myth which had an appearance by Mallika Sherawat. In this film, Chan and his previous Myth director Stanley Tong reunite, and rope Disha Patani, Amyra Dastur and Sonu Sood into the proceedings. Jackie Chan's dance is been made fun by many as he is noted for his style of fighting. The movie will definitely take you to the meditative state of mind.
