Set against the backdrop of dance competition, ABCD - Any Body Can Dance leaves you with a feeling of achievement and gives you a feel-good factor. It's a film that every Indian (considering how passionate we are for dance and music) can relate to and above all, Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya's dance is a treat to watch. The various dance style that Remo uses leaves you spellbound.
The plot as such is weak and that is where ABCD falters. The narrative by Tushar Hiranandani seems predictable. The second hour seems quite a drag and a bit more firm editing would have done the film some good. The 3D effect is not so great either.
The last dance finale will make you sit on the edge of the seat (the same feeling that you get while watching a one-day cricket match between India and Pakistan!).
Vishnu (Prabhu Deva) is extremely passionate about dance. He along with his partner (Kay Kay Menon) set up a dance academy. However, Kay Kay turns out to be quite a manipulator, and Vishnu is extremely dejected. He decides to leave Mumbai, the city of dreams and go to his hometown. That's when he spots a group of talented dancers who are preparing for a dance competition. He decides to take them under his wing and train them to be outstanding dancers.
Kay Kay Menon, as we all know, is a fabulous actor, and he does complete justice to his 'villianous' role. Prabhu Deva is extremely good in doing what he knows the best....and that is dancing! He is not too good as an actor, and that he has proved once again (He previously starred in Sapney with Kajol) with ABCD. Punit Pathak has got the spunk in him and he has the ability to be one among the leading hunks in Bollywood. Lauren Gottlieb is talented, good looking and an amazing dancer - a firang with a desi touch! All other actors have given a decent performance.
