ABCD (Any Body Can Dance) Review: ABCD (Any Body Can Dance) has expected story flow but great music and moves brings life on screen. Remo has just got it right amount of humour, few scenes can be edited but wouldn’t make difference. Casting has most of dancers from DID, who are undoubtedly very disciplined and great dancers. Starting dance at home, taking it forward on street, accepting challenge of competing at bigger platform and finally making it in a movie with delivering all their best is something immensely appreciable.
Quite balanced amount of performances for all characters like Dharmesh/Salman/Lauren/Puneet No one gets extra limelight. Prabhudeva fits into the character with decent acting, you know him for dance not for his acting and he is bloody best in it. Lauren Gottlieb was like bonus in ABCD (Any Body Can Dance). Intelligent choreography and honest attempt for showing quality of Indian dance on cinema.
Go for making yourself aware of where we are heading in dancing and what talent we posses. ABCD (Any Body Can Dance) belongs to all talented dancers who has struggled and delivered over the years and open doors for many more. Instead of comparing it with Step Up series, call it as Indian version of step up and just enjoy the treat. We have more variety of music and dances, hoping sequels to come in future with more dancers like Shakti/Binny/Raghav and obviously little champs.
