Dreaming big & reaching out to those dreams is the Mantra of the new generation. We’ve seen a few films in the recent past working on the same theme with a dash of romance added to it. Let’s Dance is an addition in this category. What makes Let’s Dance different is that, the main protagonist not only strives for achieving her own dream, but also acts as a catalyst in helping a bunch of street kids in achieving theirs.
The story revolves around Suhani (Gayatri Patel) who is a dancer and has set her eyes on making it big one day. Incidentally she meets a group of street children who also want to pursue the same dream. Suhani then starts a dancing school in order to motivate them & realizes that it is the path that she has chosen that leads to her dreams being fulfilled.
The story is not very clichéd, but it could have done with a better screenplay. The film has been shot well by editor-turned director Aarif Sheikh who gives a pacey narrative. And since the film is all about dance, Music plays an important role which doesn’t really disappoint. Few scores remain with you, when you walk out of the auditorium. The highlight though, is the choreography and the dancers do complete justice to the same.
Of the cast, debutant Gayatri Patel does a decent job, though she proves that she is a much better dancer than an actress. Aquib Afzal & Ajay Chawdhary don’t really leave an impression, whereas the group of street kids, re-iterate after Slumdog Millionaire that kids can perform better than adults at times. Rest of the supporting cast does fairly okay.
Final Verdict : Let’s Dance can certainly be given a dekko once for its performances & choreography. It may not be in the league of Rock On, but certainly attempts at reaching there.
