Watching this movie won't make you smarter, but it just might, more than most, leave you feeling happier than you were when you walked in.
For all the movie's flashy pyrotechnics and pulverizing techno-ish musical numbers, gleaning an emotional pulse can be challenging.
If you want to see some amazing dancing like you've never seen before, ABCD 2 is your joint.
Beyond the dance performances, ABCD 2 is disappointing and lacks cinematic flair or energy.
Since ABCD 2 aims to be bigger than its predecessor and magnifies its spectacle to 3D proportions, it takes no chances.
The 3D SFX add to the spectacle. But the third dimension serves as a gimmick rather than a thought or philosophy, as in Wim Wenders's immersive Pina.
ABCD2 is the latest film to recognise that - however you gender your gaze - there is an abiding pleasure in watching bodies in motion, and choreographer-turned-director Remo d'Souza keeps nudging more of them on.
It's an infectious experience
The patriotic fervour in the climax brings a lump to the throat. If only the film had been 15 minutes shorter, the 'Jai Ho' would've resonated more.
ABCD 2 is, without doubt, about mesmerising dance sequences and its equally impressive dancers. Trouble is, it's reduced to a joke every time the music stops and the characters are made to talk.
Like the franchise it's clearly inspired by-the Step Up series-ABCD 2 tricks out simple messages with spectacular dance sequences.
