Yesterday, I went to watch ABCD 2, directed by Remo D’Souza, a choreographer who also directed ABCD (Any Body Can Dance). ABCD series is India’s best dance film series. This film was shot in India and Las Vegas and starred Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor, and Prabhu Deva in lead roles. Others who were part of the dance team, The Mumbai Stunners turned Indian Stunners, were dancers from a popular dance show in India titled Dance India Dance. This show auditions random, everyday people and turns them into big stars, and Remo was a judge on this show.
The Main Cast
Varun Dhawan as Suresh aka Suru, a dancer who wants the best for his team.
Shraddha Kapoor as Vinnie, the only girl in the group.
Prabhu Deva as Vishnu Sir, the group’s guru.
The story’s plot was pretty simple and believable. First, they assemble a dance team in which every member is aspiring to go to the competition. Then they go and compete with a ton of dancing, love, and drama. The plot didn’t have anything special, except for the ending. However, the dancing on the other hand, was definitely exceptional and innovative.
The acting seemed very believable, even from the other characters that were not part of the main cast, despite the fact that they have only done one other movie.
Now, this movie’s dancing had better been good as it is a DANCE film. The dancing was outstanding! Very rarely in India do you get to see a movie that is based largely on dance, so the performances were very out of the box and pleasing to the eye.
This movie had a ton of songs, since it is a dance movie. The songs were great. One of the songs, Bezubaan Phir Se, was revamped from the last movie. Sun Saathiya is a very pretty and melodious song, not to mention how great the dancing is in the video. The songs are fun and all very different from each other.
Final Wrap it Up
Overall, this movie was very pleasing to the eye and left you with a smile on your face. Take away the dancing, and it would just be a normal average movie. However, the dancing made up for it.
3.5/ 5 stars
