Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
If only director Remo D’Souza had curbed his enthusiasm and trimmed this film by a good half hour, it wouldn’t feel like such a slog. Despite all the high-energy up on screen, you feel drained after 155 minutes of non-stop song and dance. I’m going with a generous two-and-a-half out of five for ABCD2. Sure anybody can dance, but it takes more work to keep an audience consistently engaged.

Like most dance movies (made in the West or Bollywood), the malady we are hit with is that while the dancing is professional, the writing is amateur. So, you whoop and whistle when the dances are on. But stifle a yawn between the gravity-defying grooves. The music is a let-down as is the Shraddha-Varun-Lauren Gottlieb love triangle.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!

For those who love larger-than-life entertainers, ABCD2 promises entertainment galore. Remo D'Souza gets it right yet again! ABCD2 hinges on a thin plot, but the drama [second half], choreography [spectacular] and visuals [breathtaking] more than make up for it.However, it's the finale act in #ABCD2 that deserves an applause. Merging patriotic fervour with drama was a master stroke. Clap-worthy!ABCD2 promises to dance into your heart and also dance its way to success at the box-office. Another SURE-SHOT HIT on the cards. Watch it!

On the whole, ABCD – Any Body Can Dance 2 is a surefire hit. It has hit music, great choreography, brilliant sets, outstanding camerawork and superb masala for everyone. It will easily join the 100-crore club. Its opening day and opening weekend’s collections may be the best of this year so far.

Our verdict? You should watch ABCD 2 irrespective of whether you are a dancer or not, because the performances more than compensate for the forced emotions, poorly-written dialogues and the badly-woven storyline.

The build-up, however, is both -- clumsy and grating -- what with nearly every dialogue uttered in the first fifteen minutes crying 'cheater.' Equally tedious is Dhawan's attempt to rope in a drunkard Prabhudeva as mentor.Because of its poorly paced beginning, ABCD 2 feels a bit of stretch at 154 minutes.

The film sets out to prove that all of us can do with second chances, and that Indians can do hip-hop as well as the rest of the world (which we can easily believe given the astonishing degree of expertise we see on our reality shows) But a dance movie needs to electrify. That’s missing: all the I-love-my-India drippiness overwhelms the choreography. And why is it so long? It just goes on and on.

But then, the dance is so amazing and so baroque in ABCD 2 that you can't take your eyes off the screen. It is one of those rare films where you need to pacify your Attention-Deficit-Disorder-ed self because you don't want to leave the theatre without seeing the end credits roll. In all, this week's big release is a lovely watch, and will leave you by saying, 'Naach Meri Jaan!'

Everything is larger than life in this unidimensional portrayal of a universe where passion for dance overshadows all else. Despite its rather lame storyline, ABCD 2 does not scrimp one bit on melodrama. It throws the whole kitchen sink into the attempt to generate fervour for the fluttering flag.That pretty much is the story of ABCD 2: it shows us a great deal, but tells us little. For dance freaks, there is much on offer. For lovers of cinema, ABCD 2 is a hazy blur of a movie.

BCD 2 is a complete entertainer filled with delightful dance performances. Undoubtedly, India’s best attempt at making a wholesome dance film. Every dancer in the crew is pitch perfect and Remo D’Souza deserves a ‘This Is It’. What’s Bad: Whilst Remo makes sure there is nothing missing on the dance front, the plot takes a backseat. In terms of story, the screenplay is mediocre. Also the overstretched run time is a downer for a 3D film.

 He needs to be applauded for extracting some of the best dance movements out of his lead actors Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor. Despite the fact that the film is devoid of any concrete story as the whole, it solely concentrates on the basic premise of dancing, around which the movie is based. On the whole, ABCD - ANY BODY CAN DANCE 2 makes for a good viewing and this film will surely find its way to its target audience - the youth, as the film has the right mix of content and visuals in it.

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. The dialogues are poorly written and the plot is so thin that you want to tear it apart and beg Remo to stick just to the dance sequences.Our verdict? You should watch ABCD 2 irrespective of whether you are a dancer or not, because the performances more than compensate for the forced emotions, poorly-written dialogues and the badly-woven storyline.

The film suffers majorly from poor writing and poorer editing.  The film in the second half is as sluggish. In short, if you are a DID/Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa/Just Dance fan. If you have broken your fingers, sending a thousand messages to save your favorite contestants on reality shows!! If Dharmesh, Punit, Cockroach, Raghav are familiar names who bring a big smile on your face, then you must watch ABCD 2.

  3. ABCD 2 (3D):
    157 min long ‘Dance India Dance’ episode! [2.5/5]

    Most of the times, you have to have seen the first part before opting to go for a movie-sequel. Well, most of the times! Written & directed by Remo D’souza, ABCD 2 (3D) doesn’t actually ask you to tick that box first but yes, you have to be a television junkie who keeps watching dance reality shows even on repeat telecast. The weathered formula for a TRP seeking episode is applied here utterly and unimaginatively to set the box-office ringing. And it succeeds, until just diving into stretching it too much to uphold your excitement on brilliantly performed dance-steps. More than calling ABCD 2 (3D) a dance-film, I think we should settle it with the term ‘dance-drama’ considering it has dance and (Melo) drama both in equal and strong measure.

    Inspired by the real-life event of Fictitious Dance Group of Nalasopara, Mumbai making an incredible journey of rising from the rag to winning an international dance show; ABCD 2 (3D) follows the spirit of dance as much as shown on TV these days. Suresh [Played by Varun Dhawan] and his group of underdogs have been evicted from a dance reality show for exact-replicating moves from a famous YouTube video. To regain the lost respect in the arena; now they must enter a World Dance Championship in Las Vegas but not before convincing Vishnu Sir [Prabhudheva] to coach the team. Rest is a ‘seen before-been there’ series of dance performances in the championship mixed well with issues of different natures to make the ride tougher and trickier.

    Remo D’souza doesn’t leave any stone unturned to make ABCD 2 (3D) a perfect dance film filled with its own share of dramatic subplots and emotional stories to make you go ‘Awww’ over. His mastery at choreographing dance numbers in the most astonishing way is undoubtedly at par any suggested standard, he also manages to take you through stunning visuals and spectacular cinematography but what lacks big time is the need of a good connecting story to cement all this. Subplots look placed precisely as any dance reality show does to mark a jump in TRP ratings. An unfortunate accident in rehearsal, missing mentor just before the main event, a severely ailing teammate and if this was not it, there are dedicated dance items to ignite your religious and nationalistic sentiments.

    Film’s high points include your favorite ‘Dance India Dance’ stars sharing space on big screen, some genuinely well-conceived 3D shots and the hard works of its lead i.e. Varun & Shraddha Kapoor. If you could notice the camera shots not implying quick cuts on their dance, you will cherish the fact that both the stars are very dependable dancers too. Of course, Raghav Juyal aka Croc-roach, Dharmesh Sir and Punit Pathak of DID fame are there to beat your hearts faster than you think with much better and cleaner dance moves, still the Varun-Shraddha duo earn the deserving admiration. The cameos by Prachi Shah, Lauren Gottlieb, Pooja Batra and Tisca Chopra don’t do unjust.

    Overall, ABCD 2 (3D) can only be remember as a 157-min long extended episode of Dance India Dance- a reality dance show on Indian Television. If you can watch brilliantly choreographed, well-executed & passionately performed dance numbers back to back, one after the other for nearly 3 hours, this should be your bet. Watch out for the amazing title sequence performed by Illuminati UV light Group of ‘India’s Got Talent’, the chemistry between the real dancing heroes, astounding choreography and an arresting camerawork! [2.5/5]

  9. At the time of writing, ABCD2 is already a hit with revenue accumulation of 75 crores INR. By Friday, it will surpass Ranveer-Priyanka-Anushka-Farhan-Pullmanter cruise (!) multi starrer ‘Dil Dhakadne Do’ and Deepika-Irrfan-Bachchan starrer ‘Piku’, to become the second highest grosser of 2015. All within eight days of its release. Here’s five reasons why the film deserves to be up there:
