Hailed as the Khiladi of martial arts, Akshay Kumar, brought forth India’s first martial arts comedy – Chandni Chowk to China, but it did not receive any applause. We appreciated the proficiency of combat filmed, however it lacked comedy. And while watching a soon to release PVR Director’s rare, Local Kung Fu, it was like déjà vu.

Directed by Kenny Basumatary, the film depicts the story of an Assamese boy Charlie, who comes to Guwahati for persuading and winning over the hearts of his girlfriend’s parents. With a well-knit story, the film is about a boy who beats up the bad-asses. The film starts abruptly, but time and again makes it a point to let the viewers know that Charlie is not the native of Guwahati and is staying with his uncle who runs a martial arts school. While trying to impress his girlfriend, Sumi’s parents he runs into trouble with the local goons. What falls is series of dishoom-dishoom (with the absence of the forlorn sound effect) and a setting up of a duel. If the hero wins the combat, he takes the girl and the villain leaves them to enjoy peace of life. And if Charlie loses, he never comes back to the city.
Being the work by amateurs, the film does have glitches but the crazy fights out-do them, doing a decent job to make you laugh. The director, an IIT dropout and an aspiring filmmaker set out to make a film using a Cannon 550 D with constrained budget of approximately Rs 95,000/- with a bunch of trained martial arts chaps. And with that it looks like Kenny has done well for himself as far as Assamese cinema is concerned. Bringing forth the lingo of Assam and depicting the settings of Guwahati, the film hails them as the hub of martial arts in India. What with a 90 year-old doing the stick-trick, you can’t say otherwise. The songs in the film are not too soothing, instead has more background music. The camerawork is fresh and unexpected from a newcomer. In certain spaces, it is the background score that tickles your bone while in some, the performance does the trick. Without any blood and gore, the action sequences are credible enough but some spaces look like they are forcibly filled in, as also the edits and acting are not up to the mark.
All the actors, although sloppy, have done fairly well with their character portrayal. In a subtle way, the film also gives the viewers/youth a message to stay away from tobacco products and alcohol.
