Ek Do Teen.. This Pora (read boy in Marathi) from Nalasopara idealizes the dance style of the Philippines while his ‘Tinkling’ Dil goes Hip Hop from Maa and Dharti Maa with all ‘Shraddha’ and ‘Prabhudeva.

Ding Dong Ding... This ‘Remo’ Numa Teen dance drama beneath its hip-hop gear and ‘Vande Matram’ swear, glares at the potholes seen everywhere during the early monsoon in June. But the ‘Fan’tabulously energetic dancing stepped up by Varun and Shraddha's junoon and star power makes the franchise of 2013 hit 'ABCD' moonwalk the  corny and formulaic approach for a nice grooving weekend with your friends. Aaja Naachle.

Remo and Tushar Hiranandani pen this one which is neither inspired nor unpalatably saccharine but enjoyable if you love dancing.

Suresh (Varun Dhawan), a passionate hip hop dancer, leads a local Mumbai group called Mumbai Stunners in far suburbs of Nalasopara. Vinnie (Shraddha Kapoor) is Suresh’s childhood friend and dance partner. At a local dance competition they steal combinations and dance moves from an international act and are disqualified as cheaters. The local heroes turn zeroes and the Naach Baliye dream of Suresh and Vinnie go off beat.

An exceptionally gifted dancer Vishnu Sir (Prabhudeva) Kathakalis into their mission and prepares them for the biggest international hip hop natyam.. How they faces all odds and ultimately Kuchipudi and Bhangra their dreams forms the ‘naach’ of the whole story.. how Zindagi Milegi Dobaara.. isn't it..

If you can believe in those easily defined logics like a deaf and dumb Punit Pathak can dance like a genius because he can feel the music, the strangely funny background sound, the popular international dance movie’s inspired screenplay then 'ABCD 2' is a treat.

Though the music is less engaging than the predecessor, only the rehashed ‘Bezubaan’ makes you hum along. Remo D’Souza covers the lack of music with more flair and glitz to the dance numbers drenched in rain, Indian tricolor and Grand Canyon throwing his decorated choreographer hat at will.

Brilliantly displaying Varun’s ‘abs’ and dancing hunar.. coming after the path breaking ‘Badlapur’ Varun Dhawan is at ease at feet and in complete mood to entertain. Watch the ‘Chunar’ song. Worth every penny.

Shraddha Kapoor charms all the way with her much improved dancing skills, dancing like a pro, the girl hip hops into the audience heart.

Punit Pathak again displays his brilliant dancing talents. Dharmesh is a delight. Raghav Juyal has his individual moments and excels. Lauren Gottlieb is fantastic.

Sushant Pujari is fine. Murali does his part well.

Last but not the least Prabhudeva is brilliant. ‘Happy’ is the highlight and the exceptional dancer in simple words he is outstanding.

The refreshing twist in the climax with the melodrama of Maa and Bharat Maa worn proudly on its filmy sleeve, the spirit of dance with Varun, Shraddha, and Prabhudeva, Disney’s 'ABCD 2' is aimed rightly at young urban teens and dance freaks.

Go for a ‘Happy’ dance treat.
