Movie Info

For Vishnu (Prabhudheva), widely regarded as India's best dancer, dance is more than a passion - it's the reason he lives! So when he finds himself thrown out from the swish dance academy he himself set up, by his manipulative business partner, it feels like the oxygen has been sucked out from the air he breathes. Heart-broken, Vishnu decides to give up dance and leave Mumbai forever. However the night before his departure he witnesses a most amazing sight - a group of dancers preparing for the upcoming Ganpati Dance Battle - an annual festival that pits Mumbai's best dance groups against each other. Watching the raw talent of these amazing dancers helps Vishnu arrive at a decision - he will take this disparate group under his wing, help them overcome their personal rivalries and past demons and turn them into India's best dance squad!. From India's biggest film studio, UTV Motion Pictures, and renowned choreographer & director, Remo D'souza comes India's first dance film in 3D-a spectacular entertainer that proves yet again that if you dare to dream, impossible is nothing!

It is serendipitous that this is my final review before embarking on my sixth excursion to India; intoxicating, enchanting, addictive India whose tentacles have enchained my heart, refusing to unleash me from the exotic lure of its compelling, mysterious, engaging ancient culture; I have relinquished the struggle, always returning; exiting altered, rejuvenated. India is a classroom, unearthing possibilities, long dormant, unknown sensibilities ignited by its prismatic aura. India is light, life. "ABCD:Any Body Can Dance" is a joyous romp, gravity-defying, stunning, creative choreography; Bollywood, defined by its dance sequences, can categorize this film, in a realm of its own; three- dimension enhances the aerobic abilities of the gifted cast; contortionists, rubber, elastic-limbed, soaring on winged feet through streets, rain, smoke; nullifying any limitations to the art of dance. A predictable, stale scenario: friends, dance impresarios, part ways, become competitors, training their groups to compete in the Ganpati Dance Battle. "Vishnu" (Prabhu Deva) fired by his partner "Jahangir Khan" ( Kay Kay Menon; a Hugh Grant lookalike) garnishes talented neophytes from the mean, gang- infested streets of Mumbai; the training and rehearsals of these feisty, skilled, undisciplined young people is riveting; Vishnu, named after the Hindu God,( preserver of the universe), is intransigent in exacting discipline from his students; he suffers no infractions of his dictates; he becomes a punitive "god" to his pupils, feared and revered. A touch of Shakespearian comic relief is donated by the delightful Ganesh Acharyaas as "Gopi" a corpulent, Falstaff figure, rigid supporter of Vishnu; he is the foil actualizing the success, vanquishing the vicissitudes visited upon the aspiring, first- time competitors. The film, for all of its iconic numbers, belongs to Prabhu Deva; his solo, chimerical, electric performance on a night club stage was more than magical, it was profound; a superlative blend of Baryshnikov and Billy Elliot; astonishingly astral, his brilliance: supreme, unequaled, amongst the divine, dance masters of the universe. Maybe "any body can dance" but not like this, never like this. THREE & 1/2 STARS!!! For Now.....Peneflix
