ABCD 2: 3/5

  I haven't watched the first part- ABCD even when I wanted to watch it. The only thing that kept me away from that movie was the acting skill of the dancers that Remo had cast as actors. In the promos itself, I found the acting quite funny and therefore I didn't find the movie enough deserving to spend my 200 bucks on. I had the plan to drop this movie from my watching list even this time but the kind of opening it got in spite of heavy rains made me watch it yesterday. I must say considering that the movie is based upon dance, it is very well made and for a person who loves dancing, this movie will always be in his smartphone so that he can refer to few steps that are really impressive.            

           But I have this basic problem with the concept of the movie. They say that Anybody can dance but in the film, they show nothing from this angle. They show that only great dancers form a team and get selected in different rounds of a world-level competition. It could have been great if they would have shown how people who aren't dancer meets some great dancers and match their steps with them. Well anyways, the film wanted to show how dance is the integral part of few people's life and it is clearly delivered to the audiences. I was comparing it with Happy New Year as it was also based upon the same concept except the stealing part. And while doing that, I found ABCD 2 a much better story and execution than HNY.

            In terms of direction, Remo have done it perfectly and it shows in every scene even if it does not dance in it. He have used every element to make this movie entertaining and lovable. The small twist that he adds with the character of Prabhu Deva is also a nice addition. I also liked how he didn't add too much of romance and related angle in the movie but still made the audience know that Varun and Shraddha are lovers in the movie. The way he have used locations and props makes it a spectacular visual for you and you wish to see some more of them. 

           Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor have done wonderful acting. Even though they aren't dancers, they didn't look like normal actors. It seemed as if they are professionals themselves. Dharmesh, Coakroach(don't know his real name) and Puneet are other performers who make their way for themselves in the movie. Tisca Chopra is amazing in that one cameo. Surprisingly, for me the weakest person in the movie has been Prabhu Deva. His acting is unimpressive and boring. Except in emotional scenes, every time he tries to do something, it looks fake. Not even once will you feel that he is in a character and trying to play someone. He looks quite bored and lazy through out the movie. Rest, the climax scene did it for me and the way it is executed, it makes me believe that Remo is going to come with greater movies in future. Looking forward to them. 3 stars from my side.
