Street Dancer 3D

Rating: 2 stars

It’s sad that a dance film directed by a choreographer (Remo D’Souza) lacks soul and emotion at its core i.e. dancing. Street Dancer 3D pits Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor who starred together in another dance film ABCD2, against each other to win the Ground Zero competition. Set in London this film tries to capture much more than dancing. For instance there are illegal immigrants from Indian subcontinent wanting to go back to their motherland. D’Souza who takes the credit for the story of this film sets a dance competition with undercurrent of problems faced by illegal immigrants.

Revealing more about this issue will take away the emotional endurance of the film which is really low to begin with. The narrative shows problematic areas from the beginning itself. However, it has a well choreographed and performed intro song Illegal Weapon 2.0 where the two rival dance groups; one headed by Dhawan and other by Kapoor engage in a street dance battle. You get the initial conflict. Dhawan’s group is of Indians and Kapoor’s is of Pakistanis. You know what is more likely to be in store for us.

There are quarrels over India versus Pakistan cricket match (which is a ridiculous blunder in this one). The first match of the tournament shows the footage of India versus Pakistan game from Champions Trophy 2017 while the final match footage is that of the clash between the neighbours during ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. With such quarrels there will be moral lectures. Prabhudheva has been hired to do this job in this film. He gives his pep talk on dance, physics, morality and much more.

It is evident that the dancers, the lead actors and makers have taken a lot of effort in creating the dance set-pieces but the material leading up to those is so lousy that you lose interest in seeing the battle. The dancing looks more like acrobatic stunts. The sequence that is thoroughly enjoyable is when Prabhudheva breaks into the recreation of his 90s super-hit classic Muqabala. The final competition sequence where they dance to Mile Surr Mera Tumhara is nicely done but it is plagued by the obvious turn of events.

Aparshakti Khurana plays a cameo as an illegal immigrant. Nora Fatehi does what she does best, doing all the twerks and splits and jumps and grooves to songs like Garmi. Over enthusiasm reduces Varun Dhawan to being only himself. Shraddha Kapoor looks stunning and dances well but again there’s not much to do in this film. Had the makers avoided clichés and made it little less obvious and preachy, Street Dancer 3D could have entertained more. It is probably meant for single screens and dance lovers. Hopefully, they’ll have fun watching it.

Hailed as the ‘girl of the moment’ right after her debut in Jawaani Jaaneman, actress Alaya F made headlines for delivering a phenomenal performance on the silver screen. The actress nailed her unconventional character and is still considered one of the most impactful debutants. Being the learner that she is, Alaya is leaving no stone unturned being a force by herself as she continues to work from home.

From styling her own shoots and having taken it up even though it is not her niche, virtually taking dance classes to better her craft, watching documentaries to understand nuances of different characters and even, creating her own digital series- Alaya is doubling up and making sure that nothing hinders with her commitments during the lockdown, with her hardwork and dedication.

Talking about the same, Alaya F shares, “I had certain work commitments to fulfill even while on lockdown. As actors, our nature of work requires us to be in front of camera and usually we have a whole team of professionals to make us look our best. But due to the lockdown and the safety guidelines that were put in place, it became difficult to have a team so I had to get creative and do my own hair and make up and even styling for shoots! I even did a cover shoot by myself at home!”.

She further adds, “On social media I have to stay active and I also have brand commitments so for everything on my social media, not only hair and make up and styling is done by me, but also the creating video concepts, shooting them and editing them.. it’s all done by me! Everything now takes 5 times the work it would have taken but it’s been a great learning curve! It’s given me the chance to experiment and go out of my comfort zone in a lot of ways! It also always kept me occupied and busy and overall I must say, it’s been a lot of fun!”

Alaya has been on a roll after a promising debut, with back to back magazine covers, working on herself constantly and the actress recently bagged the award for the Fresh Face new comer for her debut performance in Jaaawani Jaaneman.
