      aurora I really liked movies which potrayed people from the poor backgrounds finding sucess. The movie also has good dancers and dancing. I am happy to see the great dancers of india and dancers from 'Dance India Dance'. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/29/22 Full Review Audience Member Good attempt to bring the dance genre into Hindi films. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review r 9 Cool title, but that's as good as 'ABCD' gets. It's very much dance routine first, film second. They really do disregard any attempt at a proper premise, instead putting full focus on dance. In fairness, that's all the majority who choose to watch this will likely want. Still, they could've tried harder with the plot; which hits almost every cliché/trope imaginable. This might've made for a fun/silly 90 minute production, but at 136 minutes it's a very long watch - it proper dragged, for me anyway. I was OK with events until the ending, which is awful from a story point of view. That's unfortunate, as it is actually set up well with a hearty event - the performance for which is nice, but it quickly loses any momentum that it created from it. Prabhu Deva (Vishnu), while likeable, isn't lead-worthy in my opinion - he doesn't bring anything memorable or noteworthy to the role. Ganesh Acharya is alright to watch, he brings the amusement as Gopi. None of the dancers stand out, away from their dancing anyway. A disappointment in many ways for me, though you may like this if you're in search of a film filled to the absolute brim with dance. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the first decent dance movies made in Bollywood. Prabhu Deva is not a great actor but an amazing dancer. Ganesh Acharya overacts and his voice dubbing is horrible. Some of the dancers were brilliant, especially Dharmesh Yelende and Lauren Gottlieb. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member nice movie... dance superb!!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Just for dance lovers To begin I would like to appreciate Remo for his effort and bringing the Bollywood audience something new. I know this is much like the Hollywood "Step Up" flicks of which I am not much of a fan and I don't think I am fan of this one either. The only thing enjoyable here are the dance sequences and music, minus that we have a fill of poor acting, screenplay and dialogues. The story clichéd and predictable. The cheap 3D usage with all those pointing sticks and pipes was evident even if I saw it in 2D. Overall, if you ignore the elements of good film and just focus on the dancing you will have a good time. I mean, even I enjoyed watching the Prabhudeva light up the screen with his wacky moves! and Remo's choreography is always fantastic. Still, I cannot say ABCD is a good film. RATING: [2/5] Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
