One time watch!!

I watched the movie first day, first show and according to me it was not worth it. It was all over ABCD(2013) again except it had a better cast to attract more viewers this time. For a matter of fact, I like dance and respect every form of art so there is nothing like personal bias. I think the plot wasn't strong enough to keep the audience enthralled. There were many dance performances (some you may find meaningless) but the last one is surely gonna steal your heart but there is no storyline and one may feel that the movie is getting boring at times. Though there are no distractions such as a side love story or anything like that but we can't figure out what the movie is trying to convey. I would suggest people to go out some place other, rather than wasting their time and money on the movie. In anticipation of better dance movies in future.

Everybody is just dancing... with no reason.

ABCD 2 is a dance sequel to the 2013's ABCD of the same genre. It stars Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhudeva in pivotal roles. The story revolves around a group of dancers who join hands with a dance instructor in order to compete in a world hip-hop dance competition in Vegas and to regain their honour. ABCD 2 delivers on what it promises to give; dance. But that's all that's there to this film. While the first film gave a different spin to the dance genre with a proper storyline and some heart, the sequel pales in comparison. It doesn't know what it's trying to be, except that there must be dance. And this is where the film falters. Instead of trying to be a normal film with a SLIGHTLY higher number of dance sequences, it succumbs to an over-stretched 2h20m compilation of dance sequences. Since the film has a completely different plot from the first one, it immediately starts in the heat of the plot with literally no time to get to know the characters; not that there is much to know since hardly any detail is given to each of them. Hence, most of the film's flaws are due to its script and poor writing. For example, Prabhudeva's character, Vishnu, who had so much depth in the predecessor, is simply confusing in this one. It seems that neither him nor the viewers know what he's up to. And that's just the icing on the cake. The story doesn't know whether its trying to be a Disney G-rated film, or a serious drama. Its either trying to be childish, or sometimes overdoing it with serious preptalks and all throughout annoying you with several (sometimes unnecessary dance sequences.) The acting is quite "half-baked". If acting was dancing, every respective actor or dancer, passes with more than flying colors; including Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor. Dhawan, who proved to have major acting chops in his previous flick, Badlapur, tries to add a charm to a poorly-written Suresh, whose the hero in this film. While his efforts are noticed, there's still not much screenplay due to a new dance sequence sprouting after every five minutes. Shraddha Kapoor is wasted in this film as she hardly has any moments to shine except for her solo song, Sun Saathiya. Lauren Gottlieb, being a great addition to the group, only shows up in the last 45 minutes of the film. In conclusion, ABCD 2 completely messes up the great reputation its predecessor set up for the name 'ABCD.' It tries to follow the example of Hollywood's dance series 'Step Up' by taking a great dance film and following it with unnecessary and mindless sequels. ABCD 2 did have great potential, but its wasted by being extremely loud and annoying with a dance at every nook and corner. The film does practice what it preaches; everyone dances to express rather than to impress, and Any Body Can Dance... except it would have made more sense to take its predecessor's example and add a sensible story to it rather than simply showing us viewers that anybody can dance. ABCD 2- 4/10

Its not a Film, Its 2.5 hours of "Dance India Dance"

Let me tell you something first - I could hardly survive the "Step Up" films even though the dance sequences in those films were spectacular and those films had a story, no matter how bad the story was.

This film does not even have a story. Its just 2.5 hours of "people dancing". OK, I get the point - Its a dance film but still it is a FILM. It must have at least an iota of story. Unfortunately this film struggles with the story. They made it just to earn money and it paid off. It has already collected 14 crores on the very first day despite heavy Rains in many parts of India and Ramadan.

Now, let me tell you more about the film. It stars Varun Dhawan (who is yet to impress me because he was bad in every movie I have seen him in), Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhudeva (You sir, are a good dancer but why are you trying to become an actor?). So we have 3 stars but none of them gives a good performance. Either they did this film just for money or they were bored with all the "Dance thing".

The story of this film is ordinary and has been done to death before by countless movies in different ways - A group of wannabes join hands with an instructor to help them achieve their goal.

The dance sequences are good (I will have to give them that) but why did you make a movie just to show dance? There is too much dance in this film. Even Michael Jackson did not dance this much in his lifetime. They could have easily shortened the length of this movie by at least 40 minutes. The length of this film is god awful 2.5 hours (You can watch 2 animated movies in 2.5 hours). So you get 2.5 hours of dance sequences for 300 bucks. Now, thats a deal no one can refuse (Just joking).

The characters are thrown into the movie from god-knows-where without any kind of character development, so you get half-baked characters. Half of the people in theater were trying to understand them but it doesn't matter. You know why? because all they do is - Dance, so you need not worry about them. There are so many sub-plots and they don't add anything to the story. There are some scenes that are so annoying that you want to throw your bucket of popcorn onto the screen. These scenes exist because they had to show something in between the dance sequences otherwise there would only be dance sequences.

"Poor acting" by almost every character adds up to the frustration and makes you feel like vomiting.

The screenplay is bad, direction is sloppy and writing is awful.

The only good thing about this film is - Dance, but there is too much of it. None of us wants to see this much dance in one go.

So if you are hoping for a good story then you will be disappointed. This film does not deliver, it does not know what it is trying to be. I am giving it more than 1 because of the "good choreography" otherwise I would have given it "1". So watch it only if you are interested in watching "Dance".
