Kung Fu Yoga Movie Story & Review
Jackie Chan plays a world-renowned archaeology professor, and his team is on a grand quest to locate a lost ancient Indian treasure when they are ambushed by a team of mercenaries and left for dead. He has been approached by an Indian history professor Ashmita (Disha Patani) to help recover a magical gemstone that was lost when the Indian envoy was buried under the avalanche. Using his vast knowledge of history and Kung Fu, Jackie leads his team on a race around the world to beat the mercenaries to the treasure and save an ancient culture.
Kust like his past adventure movies, Kung Fu Yoga is all about exploring the lost treasure that included loads of action, comedy and adventure. Jackie leads the crew and his onscreen presence allures everyone and intriguing. The problem with the movie is that the original film The Myth didn’t do well at the box office and came out with average to negative reviews. There’s nothing new with Kung Fu Yoga, just old wine in new bottle, but Jackie’s adventitious stunts and some comedy make audiences to stay with the film.
Overall, id you’re an adventurous freak and like these kinds of stuff, then this movie is for you. Kung Fu Yoga won’t satisfy usual Indian film goers.
