“Street Dancer 3D” reunites Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor with choreographer-turned-filmmaker Remo D’souza after their 2015 successful outing “ABCD 2”.

Street Dancer 3D is a dance flick with Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor fronting the cast. It reunites the two actors with filmmaker Remo D’souza after their successful dance film ABCD 2 in 2015. In fact, Street Dancer 3D is the third instalment of the ABCD franchise. Prabhudheva and Nora Fatehi also play important characters in the movie.

Story: Street Dancer 3D is set in London where two immensely talented dance troupes, one Indian and one Pakistani, are constantly at loggerheads. The Indian troupe, Street Dancer, is headed by Sahej (Varun Dhawan), while Inayat (Shraddha Kapoor) heads the troupe, Rule Breakers, from Pakistan.

Both teams have one thing in common: they are passionate about cricket teams of their respective countries. They frequently meet at a restaurant run by Prabhudheva and keep engaging in meaningless arguments and squabbles every now and then. In order to prove their supremacy over the other, they enter a dance competition which changes their lives forever. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Critical Analysis: The world that filmmaker Remo D’souza has created in Street Dancer 3D is awe-inspiring. It is a visual spectacle which dazzles you. From jaw-dropping dance sequences to magnificent sets to breathtaking locations, everything in the film is top notch. It arrests your attention from the word go.

Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor give their 100% to the film and the same shows in every single dance move that they make on the screen. As performers, the tow have pushed the envelope and how! What is even more commendable is the fact that there is an army of professional dancers who perform along with them, but Varun and Shraddha leave no stone unturned in being at par with them. They immaculately match up to every single step of these professional performers. Nora Fatehi stands out with her lithe dance moves that seem to set the silver screen on fire. Prabhudheva also delivers a highly convincing performance.

What weakens Remo D’souza’s film is its story. It has no novelty and no X-factor. Many a times you feel as if you are watching an incredibly long episode of India’s Got Talent where several dance troupes have come to put their dancing skills on display. The storyline is very predictable, something which stops Street Dancer 3D from becoming a great dance flick.

Final Verdict: Street Dancer 3D is not a great movie, but it is likable and engaging. Despite several flaws, the film will appeal to everyone. Dance enthusiasts and fans of Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor are going to love it thoroughly. It could have been a far better film had the makers worked harder on the script. Having said that, there is a lot to keep you hooked to the screen. I am going with 3 stars.
