Story of ABCD-2

Suresh (Varun Dhawan), Vinnie (Shraddha Kapoor) and their team members’ disqualification in one of the top dance reality shows with a stigma of “cheaters” energies. Suresh to be the best dancer so that he could not only chafe their blemish but also could glorify his mother’s name and dream. To save themselves from the stigma, most of his friends leave him except Vinnie and some other. The only outlet to execute his dream is via Las Vegas “World Hip Hop Championship” show, but in lack of a team and a perfect mentor, his dream could be asphyxiated in the womb. Fortunately, a gem lurks in the outward appearance of Vishnu (Prabhudeva) to his feet at a restaurant to accelerate him along with his team to Las Vegas for the championship. The team’s persistent request to Vishnu induces him to accept the proposal to be their mentor, but he has his own clandestine drive that is to meet his long parted son and broken up wife in the US.

After their success in the selection round held in India for the “Hip-Hop Championship”- Las Vegas, they set up their journey towards their dream land. After their first successful performance in Las Vegas set, they hoard innumerable congratulations from well-wishers but for Vinnie (Shraddha Kapoor) it becomes indigestible that thrusts her to hospital after a bruise on here foot during her practice to let an entry for a dance-queen, Lauren Gottlieb. Their consecutive successes, that take a rest only at the final round in Vegas, really exonerate them from “cheater-stigma” along with the fulfillment of their dream and justification of the slogan, “dance to express not to impress”.

How I Perceived ABCD-2

Despite minimal plot and dialogues, the movie is stretched out with over loaded dances in length to propel audiences (except dance passionate) to exit door before its completion. Prior to interval the movie flows so languidly as if it’s waiting for Las Vegas invitation and Lauren Gottlieb’s entry to enthral the audiences.

With this 3D dance movie expectation of acting is worthless, nevertheless Prabhudeva’s a few heart-touching scenes grip the audiences. Manifestation of dance mastery can explicitly be viewed through all dance crew, but Prabhudeva’s and Lauren Gottlieb’s exceptional performance goes beyond the horizon. Music suits in average to match with the grand 3D dance project.

Screen play and editing are average but camerawork is stupendously maneuvered along with the exotic “Sets” and a few outside locations. Remo D’souza’s directorial facet seems two times weaker than his spectacular choreography. Overall the movie is average.

My Rating

2.5 out of 5 stars.

My Recommendation

If the actors of the movie are heart-throb to you or if you are crazy about dance, the movie welcomes you to satiate your desire. If you are not so, the movie-ticket price will be exorbitant than your satisfaction.
