Street Dancer 3D- Story Analysis
The film street Dancer 3D is set against the backdrop of dance, where two warring groups unite for a great cause. Sahej played by Varun Dhawan is an NRI residing with his family in London. He is a part of the Street Dancers group, along with his brother Inder played by Punit J Pathak. Inder participated in Ground Zero, a globally reputed dance show, but unfortunately gets injured.

To improve their dance moves, Sahej asks for help from Nora Fatehi, who is not only a member of The Royals, a British dance group but also his girlfriend. In the meanwhile, Inayat gets to know about some illegal immigrants who are helped by Prabhu Anna, a restaurant owner where the two groups usually chill. And when the Ground Zero competition is announced, the two groups decide to participate for their own reasons.
However, Prabhu Anna advises them to unite if they want to win the competition. The following events form the rest of the film.
Street Dancer 3D Movie Review
Street Dancer 3D is very stunning visually. The introduction scene is shot very well and instantly gives you the feel and sets the mood. The entry scenes of both the lead actress are noteworthy. While Shraddha’s entry is fun, Nora will raise the temperature and give you chills of excitement. The film does not have many high points through the film until Sahej shares his experience from Punjab with Poddy aka Raghav Juyal. It lifts the interest once again.
Before the film starts to drag the makers rightly place the intermission. However, even as the film drops after the interval, Sahej’s step to separate from Street Dancers brings a nice twist to the plot. Apart from this track, the introduction of illegal immigrants and their story is heart touching. The dance sequences especially the semi-final performance is sure to be applauded with whistles and claps. The plot is flawed somewhere but the film still has a lot to offer. You will be hooked to your seat, with your eyes glued to the screen, till the climax.
Street Dancer 3D Movie- Direction and Screenplay
The story by Remo Dsouza is not a work of fiction. It is quite predictable, even though some developments are okay. The screenplay by Tushar Hiranandani is simple and entertaining. Even with so much of dance and so many characters present on the screen, it is easy to know what’s happening. Farhad Samji has also done a great job as a writer. Some scenes, especially the dramatic sequences are very well written.
For most parts of the film, Remo Dsouza’s direction works. And with such a great choreographer like him at the Director’s seat, the dance sequences had to be done well. The confrontational sequences is something at which he excels, be it Mac assaulting Poddy, Sahej’s emotional moment Inder, Poddy-Sahej’s fallout, and Sahej’s speech.
The film runs for just 143 minutes, which is not too long. However, there are some illogical developments that cannot be missed. But there are a lot of plus points that compensate for these moments.
Street Dancer 3D- Cast Performance
Coming to the performance of the star cast, Varun Dhawan is quite charming. He has been entertaining his fans with his wit and terrific screen presence. Apart from his looks, his dance moves too will win your heart. However, he kind of fades when Nora Fatehi and Shraddha Kapoor show their moves.
Shraddha too is a treat to watch. Even though her screen time is limited she makes her impact. Nora Fatehi looks smoking hot, even though she plays a small part in the film, her role is crucial. She perfectly plays the role of a glam diva and is quite a revelation. While Prabhudeva is as usual effortless in his acting and dance, Apasrshakti Khurana too does justice to his role. All the other dancer cum actors were competent in their roles.
Street Dancer 3D- Songs, Background Score, and Visual Effects
The film is filled with songs. There are a total of 10 to 11 songs but all of them are not only rightly places but also beautifully choreographed. They make an impact on the viewers. The remake of the hit song “Muqabla” is one of the best and will surely make you groove.
The other songs like ‘Mile Sur Mera Tumhara,’ ‘Bezubaan Kab Se,’ and ‘Garmi’ are quite moving and very well shot. While songs like ‘Illegal Weapon 2.0’, and ‘Lagdi Lahore Di’ are okay. The background score by Sachin-Jigar is a bit loud but goes along with the mood of the film.
Being a dance movie, the choreography of the film is one of the highpoints. Kruti Mahesh, Tashan Muir, and Rahul Shetty’s dance piece is a visual treat.
The film’s cinematographer and production design have done a great job and it is quite appealing. Even the VFX by the Post House Studios has succeeded in making the required impact. The 3D is a delight to the eyes.
Street Dancer 3D sends a message that no matter what the question is, the answer is love. Just have love and compassion towards everyone and how friendship is important. So you can make your weekend plans with your friends to watch and celebrate dance, love, and friendship.
