Bollywood Bubble Rating

‘Street Dancer 3D’ is set in London where Sahej (Varun Dhawan) stays with his brother (Punit Pathak). Sahej’s brother suffered from a knee injury during the ‘Ground Zero’ competition’s dance battle. Now, it is his brother’s dream to have Sahej win the ‘Ground Zero’ competition.

Hardcore Punjabi Indian Sahej and his dance group have a strong rivalry with Innayat (Shraddha Kapoor) and her crew who are Pakistanis, go figure. The two hate each other and can’t stand to be in the same place. Then enters the peacemaker Anna (Prabhu Dheva) who has for sure blown us away with his dance especially in ‘Muqabla’.

The cinematography of the movie is very good but still the screenplay could have even more crisp and less abrupt. The direction too had very vast space of improvement, some scenes could just go from zero to hundred with better direction. The 3D element just amplifies the whole experience but personally, it’s absence wouldn’t make that much of a difference. Nora Fatehi plays the character of Sahej’s girlfriend and boy did she set the screen on fire. You could watch that girl dance for days. She owned the song ‘Garmi’ and pretty much most of the dance routines.

Yes, there is one emotional track in the plot that will get you sobbing. You might empathize with Aparshakti Khurana’s character who plays an immigrant in London with his friends. You might shed a tear or two over there as it binds the whole movie together.

The dance and music of the movie are really good. Yes, there is a ‘Ganpati track’ as always. The songs ‘Garmi’ and ‘Muqabla’ stood out no doubt there.

Talking about Varun and Shraddha’s dance, throughout the movie Varun seemed to overpower her most of the time. The story was a bit dragged and it fell short of that X-factor even though there was so much going on.

I give this movie a rating of 2.5 stars. You won’t be missing out on anything if you don’t watch it.
