A film somewhere in between ABCD and Gully Boy

Yeh Ballet has something in common with both the above films. Poor slum boys making big because of their talent. But the film does something new. By now we are used to watching poor boys dancing on screens and making big (in every other reality show), but never have a film ever brought two male dancers performing ballet.

Based on true story, this film tries to follow every cliche available in Bollywood's film making text book for dance movies. Angry father, talented kids, drama, a white face (for drawing in the audience -- as said by one of the characters himself) giving international validation. This film have everything. The only thing which doesn't have is a good screenplay. Perhaps in terms of story this is a good film (maybe because it is based on true story, because nothing beats that) but the screenplay which has been written on top of it is a big let down. I am not sure how Netflix is not bothered by its poor choice of acquisitions recently.

All the films follow one single pattern. Poor script. Poor dialogues. Poor editing (in the case of Yeh Ballet, straight out bad). And poor direction.

Although the casting of this film is quite good. The young New comers are a breath of fresh air. And good dancers.

Overall this film is not bad. But could have been lot better if executed well in the writing or the editing rooms.

A thirst-quenching, a bracing indie culture flavor

Ballet in india??? This may seem like an attempt to set new horizons by breaking a stereotype gender based drama .. but as a matter of fact it is a true fairytale that is fictionalized at few places, does have some run of the mill segments but it is thirst-quenching .. directed by Salaam Bombay and The Namesake screen writer Sooni Taraporevela returning to film making after a long hiatus and produced by Siddharth Roy Kapoor.. a must see...

Ballet in India

While it is always inspiring to watch a movie which shows underdogs coming out as champions, what was refreshing was a dance form that we dont often see in India. Although the movie was filled with cliches and there was a lot of things going on simultaneouslywith the central characters, but all was handled well and there was some humor in the way the characters reacted to the situations they found themselves in. All in all it was a refreshing watch.
