Movie Review: ABCD 2 (2015)

★★★☆☆
Box Office: Above Avg.


ABCD2The film starts off with Suresh aka Suru (Varun Dhawan) and Vinnie (Shraddha Kapoor)’s dance troupe ‘Mumbai Stunners’ being disqualified in the dance competition ‘Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin’. The judges reason their disqualification in the competition as blatantly copying the dance steps and moves of a Philippine dance group. In no time, all the members of ‘Mumbai Stunners’ get tagged as ‘cheaters’ everywhere they go and also in their day to day lives. The going gets so tough that most of the team members even call it quits from the troupe. The omnipresent taunt of being a ‘cheater’ starts echoing in Suresh’s mind all the time. That’s why in order to prove himself and gain the lost respect; he decides to participate in an ultra-prestigious global dance competition that is to be held in Las Vegas. It is out of pure co-incidence that he ‘accidentally’ meets an alcoholic Vishnu (Prabhu Dheva), whom he considers as their sole ray of hope to Las Vegas. After much persuasion, Vishnu decides to choreograph ‘Mumbai Stunners’, who now have to clear the national auditions that are being held in Bangalore, in order to participate in the global championship. As luck would have it, Vishnu’s intense training helps ‘Mumbai Stunners’ find their way to Las Vegas. It is here that the second half of the story unfolds, which sees Vinnie badly injuring her leg during the competition, Vishnu’s hidden agenda and many other things. After all the ups and downs, ‘Mumbai Stunners’ manage to reach the finals of the global dance championship, when calamity strikes the team’s performance, thus stunning everyone present there, including the judges. What is this calamity that strikes the ‘Mumbai Stunners’, what secret is Vishnu hiding, do ‘Mumbai Stunners’ make India proud by winning the dance championship… is what the rest of the film is all about.
