Prabhudeva New Bollywood,Tollywood,Kollywood Film ABCD-Any Body Can Dance Movie Review:
ABCD – Any Body Can Dance, directed by Remo D’Souza is one of the biggest surprises this weekend. While some of us expected Special Chabbis to be a good film, not many have high expectation from this Prabhu Deva, Kay Kay Menon, Ganesh Acharya and Lauren Gottlieb starrer film. However, Remo D’Souza proved all of them wrong with his ‘hatke’ plot and awesome dance movements in ABCD. The film also boasts to be the first dance film of India in 3D.
Vishnu (Prabhu Deva) is extremely passionate about dance. He along with his partner (Kay Kay Menon) set up a dance academy. However, Kay Kay turns out to be quite a manipulator, and Vishnu is extremely dejected. He decides to leave Mumbai, the city of dreams and go to his hometown. That’s when he spots a group of talented dancers who are preparing for a dance competition. He decides to take them under his wing and train them to be outstanding dancers.
One of his biggest strengths comes in roping in Prabhu Deva to act. If you get past his funny sounding, South-Indian accent laden dialogues like ‘Yay Bhi See Dhi (ABCD),” you will notice the astounding excellence of the dancer. You can watch the film over and over again for a ten-minuter stupendous solo dance act of the choreographer. Even on the acting front Prabhu Deva only impresses.
A major annoying factor in the film comes in the name of Ganesh Acharya. The choreographer sets loose all his pent up acting dreams and tries doing everything in one film itself. Right from a drunken act to comedy to emotional, Ganesh tries his hands at everything and only hams or over-acts in all of them much to the annoyance of the audience. Kay Kay Menon acts well and probably is the best of the lot but well, one can expect that much from him. The rest of the cast dances better than acts.
Technical and Other Departments:
ABCD is directed by director and choreographer Remo D’Souza and produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur.ABCD is an unapologetic dance film and it stands true to every sense of its claim. Remo D’Souza painstakingly infuses some never before dance sequences in the film and elevates the film viewing experience. His true innovations and expertise get showcased in the way he brilliantly captures the acts that leave you tongue-tied and gobsmacked! It’s easy to say that no other filmmaker could do a better job than this in directing astounding portions of ABCD.
The filmmaker also shows an ear for good music with the album he extracts from composers Sachin-Jigar. The film has songs ranging from emotional to melodious, groovy to enjoyable that have been beautifully picturised. A special mention to the Ganesha remixed track that gets featured in the finale.
ABCD – Any Body Can Dance, directed by Remo D’Souza is one of the biggest surprises this weekend. While some of us expected Special Chabbis to be a good film, not many have high expectation from this Prabhu Deva, Kay Kay Menon, Ganesh Acharya and Lauren Gottlieb starrer film. However, Remo D’Souza proved all of them wrong with his ‘hatke’ plot and awesome dance movements in ABCD. The film also boasts to be the first dance film of India in 3D.Set against the backdrop of dance competition, ABCD – Any Body Can Dance leaves you with a feeling of achievement and gives you a feel-good factor. It’s a film that every Indian (considering how passionate we are to dance and music) can relate to and above all, Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya’s dance is a treat to watch. The various dance style that Remo uses leaves you spellbound.The plot as such is weak and that is where ABCD falters. The narrative by Tushar Hiranandani seems predictable. The second hour seems quite a drag and a but more firm editing would have done the film some good. The 3D effect is not so great either.The last dance finale will make you sit on the edge of the seat (the same feeling that you get while watching a one-day cricket match between India and Pakistan!)
All in all, ABCD – Any Body Can Dance is India’s answer to Step Up series! Watch it for the unadulterated passion for dance and the spellbinding dance act of Prabhu Deva!
