Any Body Can Dance 2 (ABCD2) Movie Review
ABCD2 Review – Story/Plot
Written by Remo D’Souza, “ABCD 2” is a grand 3D dance film, which is a bittersweet journey of love, friendship, betrayal, honour and redemption. The film deals with the real life struggle of choreographers Vishnu, Vinnie, and Suresh from Nallasopara, Mumbai, who went on to win the World Hip-Hop dance championship.
Suresh (Varun Dhawan) and Vinnie (Shraddha Kapoor)are a part of the dance crew Mumbai Stunners, They participate in a a dance showHum Kisi Se Kam Nahi. Their crew gets disqualified from the show for performing an act which is copied from a Philippines dance crew and Mumbai Stnners are called ‘cheaters’.

Mumbai Stunners are then named as India Stunners, being trained under Vishnu Sir. Well, the team gets selected to participate in the Vegas Competition, however, there’s a major twist with Vishnu having an hidden motive.
What is Vishnu’s secret? How will India Stunners win the Las Vegas Comepetition? Watch the movie to find out!
The audience, who have watched “ABCD 2”, say that there is nothing to special about the story. But the movie should be watched for Varun Dhawan, Prabhu Deva and Shraddha Kapoor’s amazing performances, rocking music, wonderful dance choreography and brilliant cinematography.
While the script takes a dip towards the end of the first hour, it gifts a twist unexpectedly and keeps the audiences glued to the big screen. Filled with glitter and action, the dance sequences are stupendous and hugely worked upon, in comparison to the prequel. The lead cast – Varun (Suresh) who breaks the lover-boy stereotypes on one hand and stunning, glamourous Shraddha (Vinnie) on the other have done a phenomenal job by picking up the pro-routines.
Varun and Shraddha’s love story is essayed realistically – without much drama but keeping the characters focussed on the dance.
Pooja Batra and Tisca Chopra make their glamorous cameos in the film.
The patriotic feel overpowers the emotions of all those who are watching, as the dancing team fights in the international championship as proud Indians, sweating it all out to take the trophy home from a foreign land.
Director Remo D’souza makes sure there is nothing missing on the dance front but the plot takes a backseat and the screenplay is mediocre. Also the longer duration of the movie is a downer for a 3D film.
Its a decent one-time watch especially for all the dance lovers!
