ABCD aka AnyBody Can Dance > Movie Review


I generally write movie reviews on Fridays itself but this is different simply owing to the fact that it was quite a surprise!

I was almost going to miss this movie as it did not really gets my pulse racing with its promotions and the fact that it released with Special 26 which has a few very big names associated with it did not help the cause either.

However, the movie is excellent. In fact it is safe to say that it is the best movie of 2013 so far. Miles ahead of Race 2!!!

The movie is as good as any Hollywood movie as far the dance is concerned, the story is better than most Hollywood dance movies. Most of them practically have the same story line. The acting could have been better, specially Prabhudeva’s performance could have been a much better, in fact I feel even Kay Kay Menon who is otherwise amazing, also could not do justice to his character, but I guess it is fair to say that the movie is fairly experimental in the Indian context and it would have been difficult to get the bigger names on board even with a Powerhouse like UTV backing the movie. By the ways Kudos to UTV for supporting such fresh talent.

The dancers in the movie who are primarily contestants of the Dance Reality Show on Zee Dance India Dance are brilliant in their dance and surprisingly good in their acting too. They have their flaws as far as the acting is concerned, but they more than make up for it with their dance.

Trust me, it is a much better movie than most movies that are in the current 100 Crore club and deserves a watch. It is up to us the audience to decide the quality of entertainment that we want to be served in the future. If more movies like Race 2 and Son of Sardar enter the 100 Crore club, then more movies like them are going to get made and we will only have ourselves to blame.

The 3D, Lights, Cinematography, etc… are awesome. All in all, the movie is awesome as far as the technical aspects are concerned.

The movie has a lot of heart and some truly amazing sequences.

Trust me, do not miss this one. It deserves a watch in the theaters in 3D!!

Score: 4.25/5
