ABCD 2 Critics Review and Rating: Average
Varun dhawan in ABCD 2

Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor starer ABCD 2 is all set to hit the theaters tomorrow. Directed by Remo D’Souza ABCD 2 is a sequel of dance film ABCD released in 2013. Well, the reviews are out and it seems like the movie hasn’t impressed the critics too much. Let’s have a look what the critics has to say on ABCD 2.

1) ABCD 2 Critics Review by Lokesh Dharmani from masala.com: The film suffers majorly from poor writing and poorer editing. The film in the second half is as sluggish. You lose patience. You want them to snap it short and cut to the championship but the filmmaker has other plans. 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.

2) ABCD 2 Critics Review by Sneha Francis from emirate247.com: At 147 minutes of screen time, it’s evident Remo struggled to find enough stories to hold the audience in. There’s romance, emotional threads, patriotism and even (an unexplained) bloodied medical setback thrown in for the tears. Unfortunately, it’s dealt with inadequately, leaving the moments jarring, and puncturing the pace of the narrative substantially. Had Remo focused on the dance, and cut out the rest of the mush, this would’ve been a great watch

3) ABCD 2 Critics Review by Indiatvnews.com: The second installment of ABCD franchise is bigger, better, refined and articulate. We too waited for ABCD 2, and our anticipation is worth as it meets our expectations. The journey of Suresh from the beginning until he ends up holding that shimmery trophy carries intensity, thrill and excitement. 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.

6) ABCD 2 Critics Review by Ananya Bhattacharya from India Today: The dance is so amazing and so baroque in ABCD 2that you can’t take your eyes off the screen. It is one of those rare films where you need to pacify your Attention-Deficit-Disorder-ed self because you don’t want to leave the theatre without seeing the end credits roll. In all, this week’s big release is a lovely watch, and will leave you by saying, ‘Naach Meri Jaan!’

7) ABCD 2 Critics Review by Taran Adarsh: For those who love larger-than-life entertainers, ABCD2 promises entertainment galore. Remo D’Souza gets it right yet again! ABCD2 hinges on a thin plot, but the drama [second half], choreography [spectacular] and visuals [breathtaking] more than make up for it.However, it’s the finale act in #ABCD2 that deserves an applause. Merging patriotic fervour with drama was a master stroke. Clap-worthy!ABCD2 promises to dance into your heart and also dance its way to success at the box-office. Another SURE-SHOT HIT on the cards. Watch it!

8) ABCD 2 Critics Review by Shubhra Gupta from Indian Express: Much of ‘ABCD2′ is inspired by real life: a Mumbai group made it to the world hip-hop championships a few years ago under tough circumstances.  The film sets out to prove that all of us can do with second chances, and that Indians can do hip-hop as well as the rest of the world (which we can easily believe given the astonishing degree of expertise we see on our reality shows) But a dance movie needs to electrify. That’s missing: all the  I-love-my-India drippiness overwhelms the choreography.  And why is it so long? It just goes on and on.

9) ABCD 2 Critics Review by Saibal Chatterjee NDTV: Everything is larger than life in this unidimensional portrayal of a universe where passion for dance overshadows all else. Despite its rather lame storyline, ABCD 2 does not scrimp one bit on melodrama. It throws the whole kitchen sink into the attempt to generate fervour for the fluttering flag.

Overall, ABCD 2 looks like a one time watch at least for Remo D’Souza and his wonderful team.
