SIFY
Take your pick. There is a whole lot of dancing talent on show here. It is the packaging that lets down the performers -- and the viewers. And why, pray, is this film in 3-D? It isn't about Pina Bausch and Remo D'Souza is no Wim Wenders.
But the best thing you can say about this film is that it's earnest. It could have been so much more.

Is ABCD – Anybody Can Dance the Lagaan of dance? Not by a long chalk. Knowledge of the ABCD of choreography – of which there is no dearth at all in this film – certainly doesn't guarantee cinematic excellence and narrative grasp.
NDTV
ABCD - ANY BODY CAN DANCE's biggest strength lies in the variety of dances that Remo presents to the spectators. Where the film falters is in its skeletal plotline, although writer Tushar Hiranandani comes up with several knockout sequences.

But talent loses to packaging
Smash Hits
If you enjoy some cool, snazzy dance and can look past the largely decorative acting, this is actually a movie worth a watch. I give it a slightly generous 3 stars, largely because of the overwhelming positivity in the script and the loudly subtle happy-ending.

Director Remo made decent debut with a kind of surprise hit "Faltu" starring Jaccky Bhagnani. This time he chose a subject which was close to the heart. An Indian version of "Step Up" and something which was never seen in Bollywood - a complete dance film!

Kay Kay Menon as Jehangir is the only actor in the movie, who has not danced, but he more than makes up for it with his intense performance.

On the whole, ABCD is one film which has a total A to Z of dancing. A never before seen dance sequences and some out standing choreography are sure shot plus points. On the flip side, a boring and dragged out second half kills the flow of the film.

If there is a will there is a way. If you have passion for something nothing can stop you from achieving it. Remo D’Souza’s “ABCD” is not just about the basics of dancing, but about living your passion
IndiaTV News
Remo d'Souza's film glides in expected but never dull ways. It winds its way through a series of self-consciously constructed road-blocks for the sincere dance teacher and his students who learn, the hard way, that dance is for one's own pleasure and not to show off.

Given that his hoofing skills are incomparable, Prabhu Deva would have done a movie like this sooner or later. Actually, he should have done it sooner.

Movie isn't about dialogue, though. Or, you know, acting. Or even the story, for that matter. The focus is on dance and sure, that bit's not all bad. But just as I didn't have the patience to sit through the entire duration of Step Up (the comparisons are
