Screening antiquated martial art movies when nothing else is available is not
uncommon to cinema halls in Hyderabad. The reason is simple - little investment

Lethal Hunter (actually Drunken Tai Ji) is supposedly the last traditional martial

debuts in this film. And since we have never heard of him before, it is no profound
inference that he is no superstar.
