The movie seems to be inspired by Step Out series 3, which was superb in technical execution and 3 D action. Remo DíSouza (director of ABCD anybody can dance ) has refused to copy the theme of flash mob dancing in the Hollywood original movie. Rest of the theme too, is tailor-made for the Indian audience.

The Bandra reclamation locale with its bridge as background is superbly chosen. Apart from this aspect the movie moves in slow motion and picks up pace in unfolding the plot. The title of the movie reveals that anybody can dance provided he or she puts in their heart and soul into the activity.

Remo is blessed with abundant talent from Dance India Dance show on Sony TV. All the excellent dancers have been picked and introduced into the film. Some of the notable dancers are Dharmesh, Salman, Prince, Kishore, Paul, Mohini, etc.

The story revolves around Vishnu ( Prabhu Deva ) who is shown the door by the famous Jehangir Khan (Kay Kay Menon) of JDC (Jehangir Dance Academy). Vishnu is left with no option but to teach his mentor a lesson, that dance is all about discipline and dedication not about manipulation and packaging. How he goes about his task despite numerous hurdles is theme of the ABCD.

Ganesh Acharya ( Gopi ) gives asylum to Vishnu to hunt for his talent among the Bandra boys who are basically street dancers. How he converts their raw talent into honed dance moves forms the crux. Prabhu is good in his dancing skills but his dialouge delivery lacks the punch of an established actor. The movie does not stress much on romance or extra dramatisation unlike the Hollywood movie.

I was disappointed by 3D effect of the movie. The Step Out technical finesse is far superior. This movie would definitely appeal to all youngsters and college students. Go for it guys if you are a dance enthusiast.
