Story

Munna (Tiger Shroff) is a fan of Michael Jackson.  Also, His foster father Michael (Ronit Roy) is a fan of MJ.  Munna is fond of dancing and earns money by dancing in the club of Mumbai.  He gets banned from that club, thereafter he goes to Delhi to earn money.  In Delhi, he meets a gangster named as Mahinder Fauji (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Mahinder loves Dolly (Nidhi Agerwal) and wants to impress her with his dancing skills.  So, Mahinder asks Munna to teach dance to him. Munna becomes his dance teacher.  Dolly wants to participate in the dance reality show.  Munna and Dolly love each other. Also, he becomes Mahinder’s best friend.

Plus Points:

The movie is a great treat for Tiger Shroff’s fans.  The story is not new. But Tiger dances well.  He performs action scenes excellent.  His entry scene is a whistle worthy which include with a song.  His childhood scenes have shot well.

His chemistry with Nawazuddin Siddiqui is watchable.  Their dance lessons scenes are entertaining.   But editing of Nawauzddin’s final dance is totally messy.  You will realize immediately that there was used a body double of the actor.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been emerging with his each movie, and this movie is not exceptional. His comic timing, as well as his dialogue delivery, is praiseworthy.  He dances well too.

Ronit Roy and Pankaj Tripathi are brilliant in their roles.

Choreography and Action Direction are on higher notches in the movie.  The Cinematography is nice.  Songs are foot-tapping.

Dialogues have solid punches.

Minus Points:

The movie could become a good masala entertainer. But it lacks a strong script.  The director has poorly executed the clichéd plot.  At one point, the movie turns to a predictable manner.

The movie leaves the logic in several places.  Why Mahinder love Dolly? Dolly is a participant of the reality show, but Mahinder doesn’t know about her whereabouts.  Doesn’t he watch T.V.?  What kind of illness does Munna’s father have?

Tiger is amazing in dancing as well as in action in this movie.  However, he fails to emote well in some places.  Now he needs to do different genres of movies.

Nidhi’s performance is not impressive. She has shown as a participant in the dance reality show, but her dance skills are poor.  Also, she doesn’t look as such kind of girl, for whom both guys-Munna and Mahinder will fall in love with her.

The editing is ok.

They have shown Navi Mumbai as Delhi in this movie!

The reality show’s track has taken a too much cinematic liberty.

Is this movie worth to watch?

Yes. Watch only for the nice chemistry of Tiger and Nawazuddin.   Otherwise, stay away from this boring movie.
