IP Man 2008 Urdu Dubbed Chinese Movie
Ip Man is a 2008 Hong Kong biographical martial arts film based on the life of Ip Man, a grandmaster of the martial art Wing Chun and teacher of Bruce Lee. The film focuses on events in Ip’s life that supposedly took place in the city of Foshan during the Sino-Japanese War.
In 1935, Foshan is a hub of Southern Chinese martial arts, where various schools actively recruit disciples and compete against each other. Although the Wing Chun master Ip Man is the most skilled martial artist in Foshan, he is unassuming and maintains a low profile. He is respected by other masters for the humbleness he displays in friendly, closed-door competitions.
One day, a troublemaker named Yuan tries to rescue his kite from Ip Man’s tree and witnesses Ip defeat fellow master Liu in a friendly sparring match. Yuan spreads the news all over Foshan. His brother Lin, a disciple of master Liu, pulls his pants down in public to show Yuan that some secrets need to be kept private. Embarrassed, Yuan disappears into the crowd.
Jin Shanzhao, a rude but highly skilled Northern Chinese martial arts master, challenges all the masters in Foshan to duels, which he easily wins. Ip’s reputation is further enhanced when he defeats Jin, thus upholding the regional pride of fellow Southern stylists and others in Foshan. The young men in Foshan beg Ip to take them as disciples, but Ip turns them down.
During the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Imperial Japanese Army confiscates Ip’s house and repurposes it into their Foshan military headquarters. Ip and his family lose their wealth and are forced to move into a decrepit apartment. Desperate to support his family, Ip finds work at a coal mine alongside Lin. Lin regrets humiliating Yuan but his efforts to find his brother and gift him a small metal tin have proved futile.
General Miura, a Japanese Karate master, establishes an arena where Chinese martial artists compete with his military trainees for the prize of a bag of rice. Li Zhao, a former police officer and Ip’s acquaintance, now works as an interpreter for the Japanese army. He offers the martial artists working at the coal mine the chance to earn a bag of rice for every match they win. Lin disappears shortly after his fight, and Ip agrees to participate in order to find out what happened to his friend.
Ip watches Master Liu defeat one of Miura’s karateka. Liu then requests to fight three at once for more bags of rice, though he loses the match. When Liu attempts to collect his winning bag of rice from the first match, Miura’s second-in-command, Colonel Sato, shoots and kills him. Miura points Sato’s own gun to his head and threatens to personally execute him if he fires in the dojo again.
After witnessing Liu’s execution, Ip deduces that Lin was beaten and killed after his earlier fight against Miura. Enraged, Ip demands a match with ten karateka at once. Despite having not practiced Wing Chun since the Japanese occupied Foshan, he mercilessly defeats them all, showing none of the restraint he exhibited in his earlier matches with other masters. His skill arouses the interest of Miura, who wants to learn more about Ip and watch him fight again. Ip collects Liu’s bag of rice and gifts it to his surviving family.
Ip visits his friend, Chow Ching-chuen, who owns and runs a cotton mill in Foshan. One day, Chow’s son rushes to Ip and tells him that a bandit gang led by Jin is harassing the workers and trying to extort money from them. Ip finally agrees to teach others and trains the workers in Wing Chun for self-defense.
When Ip does not return to the arena, Miura grows impatient and sends Sato, along with several soldiers, to track Ip down. After overpowering them single-handedly, Ip and his family flee their apartment and hide in Li’s house. When the bandits return to the cotton mill, the workers are able to fight and stall them long enough for Ip to arrive. He beats Jin by hitting his right ear with a wooden pole and deafening it; Ip warns Jin to stay away from the workers. Ip confronts Yuan outside the mill for his participation in Jin’s gang and tells him of his brother Lin’s fate. He gifts Yuan the tin, which contains his folded up kite. Yuan leaves Jin’s gang and joins the workers in resisting the Japanese.
One of the gang members informs the Japanese army about Ip. They soon raid the mill and though Li suggests him not to go to the mill, Ip arrives there to save everyone. As Ip is being taken prisoner, he asks Chow to take his wife and son to Hong Kong for protection. Miura tells Ip his life will be spared if he agrees to instruct the Japanese soldiers in Chinese martial arts. Ip refuses and challenges Miura to a match. Miura accepts because of his love for martial arts and to avoid humiliating the Japanese people. Sato secretly threatens Ip with death if he does not throw the match. At first, the two fighters seem equally matched. Ip eventually overwhelms Miura, inflicting a severe beating through an impeccable defense and relentless blows.
The Chinese crowd cheers for Ip, who sees his wife and child returning with Chow. Just then, Sato shoots Ip in the shoulder, causing him to fall to the ground. This act incites the Chinese crowd, who quickly overwhelm the Japanese soldiers. During the scuffle, Li kills Sato with the latter’s own gun. Ip is taken away by Chow and Yuan amid the chaos.
A closing onscreen text reveals that Ip survived and has escaped with his family to Hong Kong with Chow’s help in 1949. There, Ip establishes a Wing Chun school where his students, including Bruce Lee, came to learn martial arts from him.
