ABCD 2 - Top Reviews

Director Remo D'Souza ends up the film with a note - 'Life is all about the next step', we would love to follow that by excusing this film and wait for his next venture.
Divya Solgama, Moviez Adda
For dance freaks, there is much on offer. For lovers of cinema, ABCD 2 is a hazy blur of a movie
Because of its poorly paced beginning, ABCD 2 feels a bit of stretch at 154 minutes
Sukanya Verma, REDIFF
Varun, a terrific dancer, puts his heart and soul into the role and it is to his credit that he looks perfectly capable of being the leader of a professional dedicated dance group
Luckily, the film, in 3D, is quite a spectacle
Baradwaj Rangan, BaradwajRangan
Sure anybody can dance, but it takes more work to keep an audience consistently engaged
Rajeev Masand, Rajeev Masand
Far too much dancing to impress, rather than express, we guess…
Mayank Shekhar, ABP Live
Had Remo focused on the dance, and cut out the rest of the mush, this would've been a great watch
Sneha May Francis, Emirates 24X7
Great looking lead pair, dancing their socks off and the visuals are pretty neat too. ABCD 2 is a dance film that makes its viewer feel like dancing. Michael Jackson would approve!
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
Except the dance sequences, every other element in this film seems like an afterthought
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo India
ABCD 2 review: The beginning is the end for Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor’s film
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
The happiest film of the year.Remo’s coming-of-‘edge’ dance-and-drama razmatazz is suffused with a steep joie de vivre

ABCD 2 - All Reviews

Director Remo D Souza tries to deliver a film notch higher than prequel and he succeeds as far as star power and gloss are concerned. But it seems that he comfortably overlooks writing department which could had made the huge difference.
Box Office Capsule
Why should you watch the film? Apart from its fantastic dance sequences, the film gives you a sincere Varun Dhawan (How can you not love him?), 3D put to good use and a climax that you will enjoy
Vidula Menge, BookMyShow
Despite the surge in dance-based reality shows, dance-based films, once an important genre in Indian cinema, were increasingly becoming a rarity before Remo D’Souza’s rag-tag team stole many hearts in ABCD with its absorbing contemporary choreography

Great Dance Moves Make It Watchable
Suparteek Chatterjee, Huffington Post
It will make-up for a decent one-time watch and so for weekend cine goers, this will be a good choice. There is drama, emotion, patriotism, love and most important of all – Dance!
Surabhi Redkar, Koi Moi
The oversimplified treatment and the superfluous screenplay makes things worse. And the film is 30 minutes too long.
A must watch for all dance lovers this weekend as the movie releases on 19th June, 2015.
Sab Filmy Hai
ABCD 2 is, without doubt, about mesmerising dance sequences and its equally impressive dancers. Trouble is, it's reduced to a joke every time the music stops and the characters are made to talk
Sweta Kaushal, Hindustan Times
Watch It Only For The Dance Sequences
Jaidev Hemmady, Movie Talkies
On the whole, ABCD – Any Body Can Dance 2 is a surefire hit. It has hit music, great choreography, brilliant sets, outstanding camerawork and superb masala for everyone.
Komal Natha, Komals Review
You should watch ABCD 2 irrespective of whether you are a dancer or not, because the performances more than compensate for the forced emotions, poorly-written dialogues and the badly-woven storyline
‘ABCD 2’ is a step in the right direction
Kusumita Das, Deccan Chronicle
With well choreographed dance sequences and 3D effects, ‘ABCD 2’ is entertaining and will be equally liked by dancers and non-dancers.
There is little in the film apart for that to entertain you.
Tushar Joshi, DNA India
Varun Dhawan undoubtedly ruled the hearts throughout the film with his outstanding performance. Especially his dancing skills are elevated thoroughly in the movie. Shraddha Kapoor has been stunning and glamorous too. Her dedication towards the dance movements off screen can be identified through her quality of dance she gave on the screen.
Aravind, Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
You wonder why. Maybe we do know the answer: The sound from the box office cash register must have been quite deafening.
Tanul Thakur, First Post
If the length of the movie and a few dragged scenes can be avoided, ABCD 2 is definitely worth a watch.
Pradeep Varma, Bollywood3

RDS: With you both around, I know why I called these films ABCD - Any Body Can Direct.
Mihir Fadnavis, First Post
The last dialogue where Suresh says, "Ma kehti hai, agle kadam par dhyan rakhna," was very close to SHOLAY. Remember the line, "Soja bete nahi toh Gabbar aa jayega."
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
ABCD 2 is what you would call a ‘dance film’. While ‘dance’ may be the keyword here, doesn’t it also have to be a ‘film’ — you know, with relatable characters, an interesting storyline and some coherence?
Vishal Menon, The Hindu
To Sum Up, ABCD 2 is a treat for the dance lovers as they will get to see some of the finest dance performances in the film but for the rest, the film won’t appeal a bit as there is barely a story to keep you hooked on the screen for Two and A Half Hours
Talking Moviez
Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor starrer ABCD 2 has hit the theatres today! The film is faring well too with its opening doing as well as Akshay Kumar’s Gabbar Is Back. Is the film worth your money? Do Varun and Shraddha do justice to the film? Most importantly will it make your weekend more entertaining? Well, read on to find answers to all your questions in our review…

ABCD 2 is all about passion for dance -- a great flick to watch if you are a dance buff
In all, this week's big release is a lovely watch, and will leave you by saying, 'Naach Meri Jaan!'
Ananya Bhattacharya, India Today
Watching this movie won’t make you smarter, but it just might, more than most, leave you feeling happier than you were when you walked in.
Scott Foundas, Variety
he 3D effects are a cool add-on to the whole package and kids will enjoy it more than their parents. This monsoon, drench yourself in some flavourful Indian popping and locking with ABCD 2.
As an ambitious and earnest dancer, his character is graceful and fluid. Except for the honest note he strikes, the rest of the film could have been just a bunch of music videos and no one would have been the wiser.
ABCD 2 is a great movie for the weekend watch, irrespective of the age, you can enjoy this good 3D dance movie and have a smile on your face through out. Filmibeat verdict says, ABCD 2 is a must watch on this great weekend.
Priyanka Prasad, Filmi Beat
An eminently watchable dance movie that overstays its welcome
Nikhil Kumar, Apun Ka Choice
Finally, it is needless to say that this flick deserves a watch. It doesn’t matter you are a dancer or not, you would be moved by this Remo D’ Souza presentation.
India TV News
In short, if you are a DID/Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa/Just Dance fan. If you have broken your fingers, sending a thousand messages to save your favorite contestants on reality shows!! If Dharmesh, Punit, Cockroach, Raghav are familiar names who bring a big smile on your face, then you must watch ABCD 2.
Lokesh Dharmani, Masala
Sans the gush and the mush, ABCD 2 is just about watchable but the wicked vibrance remained obsolete altogether.
Pink Villa
The Subject of Dance and Music Makes the film Too Monotonous to Enjoy
Just Bollywood
ABCD 2 is too melodramatic and too impressed with itself to be able to deliver an eye-popping dance spectacle that you expect and deserve. If you're looking for that great Bollywood dance-off film, you'll have to wait and see if ABCD 3 does it for you.
