ABCD – Any Body Can Dance – 2

remo has struck the right chord.When Prabhudeva is on the floor, there is a snap and pop, even though his moves are familiar. A couple of numbers do crackle. There are two dancers in here who are amazing. But the rest of them, and their sequences, turn into the seen-this-so-what's-new blaze. It sounds uncharitable, but there are a few common threads between Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor's first dance film ABCD 2, which hits theatres today, and Shah Rukh khan and Deepika padukone's Happy New Year. Luckily for us, the similarities between the two films end here. The big difference between the two is that if Happy New Year was a torture, ABCD 2 is a film Bollywood can be proud of producing any time. It is a treat of dance performances you will leave you mighty impressed. ABCD 2 tells the story of Suresh and Vernon's journey from Nalasopara in suburban Mumbai, to the World Hip Hop Challenge finals in Las Vegas. Of course, there's Vinnie, too, to add the necessary element of romance to the film. Prabhudheva reprises the role of Vishnu Sir from the first film, and there are stars added to the cast this time around. Suresh (Varun Dhawan), whose Padma Shri dancer of a mother had planted the germ of dancing in him, now ekes out a living as a waiter at a pub. Vinnie (Shraddha Kapoor) is a hairdresser, whose dream is the same as their dance group Mumbai Stunners' - of being big in the dancing scene of the country someday. When at a reality show, the group is disqualified after being accused of copying the Philippines' All Stars, a world famous dance group, the team disintegrates. Suresh wants to prove it to the world that they are not cheaters. The method? By signing up for a tedious process that culminates in Las Vegas, on the World Starz Hip Hop Challenge stage. On the way, Vishnu guides them, as the team grows with dancers from other parts of the country. Varun Dhawan dances like a dream; and pitted against his bare abs and his acting, the actor's dancing vies for space in the mind of the viewer. Shraddha Kapoor has worked mighty hard to get her moves perfect. As far as her acting is concerned, Kapoor's expressions are not as blank as during her Aashiqui 2 days, but at times, she does look like she's aware of the camera filming her. overall,the movie is worth a watch..a full paisa-wasool film
