ABCD: Any Body Can Dance Reviews
At 2 hours and 20 minutes, 'ABCD' is too long. There's some genuinely original choreography up there, but it's lost in a plodding film with characters you couldn't care about.
This film had the potential, but it needed both sharper direction and dancing, to maximize it.
...the best thing you can say about this film is that it's earnest. It could have been so much more.
ABCD tugs at your emotional cords all the way as Prabhu Deva tries to convert a bunch of street ruffians into champions.
Take your pick. There is a whole lot of dancing talent on show here. It is the packaging that lets down the performers -- and the viewers.
This movie isn't about the A-to-Z of dance; but if there's rhythm in your body this one will move you. To the nearest floor.
...has some incredible, eye-popping dances as its soul. While the template may be conventional -- the triumph of the underdog -- the film has its share of moments that stay with you, especially the concluding portions of the film. Decent watch!
If you enjoy some cool, snazzy dance and can look past the largely decorative acting, this is actually a movie worth a watch. I give it a slightly generous 3 stars, largely because of the overwhelming positivity in the script and the loudly subtle happy-ending.
