Street Dancer 3D Quick Movie Review

What more can you expect from a dancer turned director like Remo D’Souza? After the ‘Race 3’ (2018) debacle, he offers us a string of peppy dancer numbers interwoven with an illegal immigrant backdrop story in London, UK. Stupidity reigns overall because of cliched dialogues, incomprehensible acting and confusion over the actual theme of the movie. The lack of originality, as it appears to be another poor copy of the ‘Any Body Can Dance’ franchise, rubs more salt into the wound. Varun Dhawan, who is comfortable as a dancer, is impressive and amazes with his moves and perfect chiseled body. He acts according to the messy script and manages to deliver his best, nevertheless. Ditto for Shraddha Kapoor, but her screen time is significantly reduced. Nora Fatehi is dashing and creates frenzy on screen but does not receive a meaty role to showcase her acting skills! Prabhu Deva does not disappoint in the revamped version of “Muqabla”. The supporting cast of Dharmesh Yelande, Punit Pathak, Salman Yusuff Khan and Raghav Juyal gets ample scope to perform. The talented Aparshakti Khurana is sadly relegated to a forgettable role. Unfortunately, the direction leaves a lot to be desired as the illegal immigrant track is forced into the narrative and therefore, the emotional quotient is totally fake. Editing is below standard for such a theme. Ear pleasing music (mostly recreated hit tracks) by an army of so-called ‘music composers’ aims to bring the youth to watch this dance-competition-cum-emotional-story but one is left in a state of utter confusion after humming all the dance numbers!
