Starring: Prabhudeva, Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor, Raghavan Juyal, Dharmesh Yelande
Directed by Remo D'Souza
Rating: **

ABCD2 feeds on the Step Up franchisee, very unabashedly at that. Like Step Up, not only does it aim at the youth as its core audience but is even structured like most of the recent dance movies from the West. Which means a string of spectacular dance set-pieces linked together by random scenes, a wisp of a story and kindergarten-level Hinglish lines for dialogue. Sample: “Tumhari poojya mataji died with ghunghroos on”. However, to underline the Indianness of the context the victory cries of the dancers are, predictably,  “Ganap­ati bappa morya” and “Bharat mata ki jai”.
