So I just watched it online, and I have so much to say!
***Might Contain Spoilers***
First off, there were parts missing and that bugged me, but there is no where in my area playing it and I really wanted to see it so I had no choice.
The storyline was weak, but honestly I don't care. It was cliched to the max but I loved it. The only thing I didn't like about the writing was that there were too many characters, and most of their stories weren't developed properly (I don't think they all even had names
). Inspiration from the Step Up series is obvious, but I liked ABCD better.
As actors, they all surprised me- in a good way- especially Dharmesh!! I did not think he would do even half as well as he did. Everyone was good, but Punit stood out- maybe it's because his character's story touched me, but he made himself stand out. I wish his character didn't die, because now there is no chance of him being in the sequel.
There were so many DID contestants that I lost track counting part way through.
I liked Lauren as well- if I didn't know, I would have thought she knew Hindi, because her accent wasn't too bad, and she was good at the Indian dance styles too.
The dances were all AMAZING!! If you're a dance lover, you'll love it, and even if you're not the last scene will amaze you!
Other than the dance, I loved the whole friendship aspect. When there are two groups, and one of them is being taught the dance, the others sit outside the hall and watch and learn from afar, just because D doesn't want to go, and they don't go until he does.
There was one scene that I didn't like, and it's in the beginning of the movie with Dharmesh, Saajan and 2 others running away from the cops. It just looks like it was thrown in to justify the 3D aspect, because every 5 seconds there is someone jumping at the screen or something being thrown at the screen, and maybe it looks cool in 3D but watching it in 2D irritated me.
