Remo D’Souza has directed films like FALTU, ABCD, ABCD 2 and Race 3. ABCD and ABCD 2 were dance-based films and now, Remo has directed one more dance-based film titled Street Dancer 3D. The movie stars Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhudheva in the lead roles (they were also a part of ABCD 2).

The movie is about two dance groups in London; Street Dancer, an Indian dance group, led by Sahej (Varun Dhawan) and a Pakistani dance group named Rule Breakers, led by Inayat (Shraddha Kapoor). Now, of course, it’s India vs Pakistan here. But soon, the movie turns towards the struggles of illegal immigrants in London and how by winning a dance competition these dance groups plan to send them back to their respective countries.

The story is written by Remo D’Souza and he had a good story in his hands. But Tushar Hiranandani’s screenplay and Remo’s narration ruin the whole film. The screenplay is very boring and also quite scattered. The editing is not good at all and there are a lot of continuity issues especially with Varun Dhawan’s hair colour. Remo’s direction is also not up to the mark and he fails to narrate the emotional story.

Coming to performances, Varun Dhawan fails to impress us. He is good when he is dancing but as soon as an emotional scene comes, the actor is really bad at it. Shraddha Kapoor is decent in the film. It is not a great female lead character. Nora Fatehi has danced amazingly in the film, but the movie doesn’t give her any scope to perform as an actor. Prabhudheva is fantastic in the movie. He has performed very well and it is a treat to watch him dance on the big screen especially in the song Muqabla.

Talking about music, songs like Garmi, Muqabla, Nakhra and Mile Sur Mera Tumhara are damn good.

Overall, Remo D’Souza had a good story in his hands, but he failed to convert it into a good film. The movie has a few good dance sequences, however, if you skip this one, you won’t miss anything great.
