    Verdict - Dance-lovers will rejoice but cinema lovers won’t!

    ABCD 2Watch trailerRelease date : June 19, 2015

    ABCD released two years back and became an overnight sensation as it was touted as India's first dance movie. The announcement of its sequel created quite a buzz and just got bigger with the casting of Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor! Has it been able to live to the expectations? Has choreographer turned director Remo D'Souza been able to recreate the magic? I would say a big YES but only in terms of some spectacular dance sequences. But those who were expecting a good storyline and nice cinematic experience will be left very disappointed!

    Based on a real life story of two choreographers Vishnu and Suresh, the story traces their journeys from the backstreets of a Mumbai suburb to winning an International dance championship. Along with them are other dreamers who become part of their team and support each other in their downfall and rise to fame!

    The dialogues are badly written and sound too melodramatic at times. Even the editing of the movie is not up to the mark as easily 30-40 minutes could have been done away. Some shots have been done really well and Vegas moments are fun to watch.

    The saving grace for the movie is Varun Dhawan who tries very hard to keep the movie alive with both his dance and acting skills. He is experimenting with different roles, which is a good thing but he also needs to make good choices in terms of script! Shraddha Kapoor is annoying at times but manage with the dance moves. Prabhudeva sir is still far from being a good actor. The highlight of the movie though is the supporting dancers who pack a punch in terms of their skills, be it Dharmesh Sir, Punit or Lauren!

    In all, if you are a dance-lover you might love it, but if you are going for a good story, skip it!
