Street Dancer Movie Review: It’s all about dance not acting
The movie starts with a performance of Puneet Pathak’s performance and he is introduced as the elder brother of actor Varun Dhawan. Varun dhawan plays a very ambitious, dreamer, softie- boy kinda role whereas Shraddha ( inayat) is pompous by nature. And her killer looks and impressive dance moves grabbed the eyes of the audience.
Both Inayat and Sahej have dancing gangs with their names as “rule breakers” from Inayat’s gang and “street dancer” from Sahej’s gang. Initially, the gang belonged to his elder brother which got scattered due to some accident occured with Puneet Pathak and he broke his leg along with his dream of winning the zero ground battle dance championship.
Both captains of the dancing gang tries to prove their supremacy over one another, by giving killer and impressive dancing moves.The harmless tiff between the two opponents takes the form of something bigger when the zero ground battle dance championship 2020 is announced.Also the movie street dancer 3D completely justifies the price of ticket and we can say the movie is “paisa vasool. “
With other cast of the team ( most of the ex contestants of the dancing show dance india dance) dancers turning into actors have justified their roles. Dharmesh , Salman Yussuf khan, raghav have played their respective parts competently and perfectly acted as supporting actors .When we talk about the entry of the actor prabhu deva he acted as a owner of the restaurant and he was actually a suprise package to the movie . The audience got amazed with his revamped version of the song ” muqabla” which made the audience to hoot out during the show.
The music and dance choreography is the main element of the movie as we all can understand by the title of the movie ” street dancer” . With compositions by Sachin-Jigar, Tanishk Bagchi, Badshah, Guru Randhawa and Harsh Upadhyay among others, Street Dancer can come across as a musical hotchpotch. But the good thing is there is something to suit everyone. Garmi composed by Badshah pictured on Varun and Nora is as steamy as they come while Lagdi Lahore Di by Guru Randhawa brings the Punjabi beats to the dance floor.
Before the interval the movie is quiet slow and audience is unable to understand the storyline. But after the interval the story starts to unfold and reveals out the right track.
Usually in dance movies the plot is the first casualty, but in the case of Street Dancer 3D, there is enough to keep you engrossed. From Indo-Pak tensions that spill over from the cricket match to the dance floor, to the issue of illegal immigrants in London, the makers have packed in enough and more to keep you hooked to the two-and-a-half hour movie.
Admittedly the film descends into melodrama, especially when it comes to treating the cross border rivalry and the plight of the illegal immigrants in London, but it doesn’t scrimp on the main subject matter. And that’s dance.
There are a lot of special effects – headless dancers and performers with their feet on fire – but the sheer talent of the entire cast shines through behind the technical wizardry.In the end Street Dancer is a treat for those who love dance movies. And whatever faults it may have in terms of cliched plotlines and melodramatic moments, it more than makes up for it with a host of talented dancers who’d make you wish you could dance even half as well as them!
