The arts are strong. Be it music, dance, or theatre, they all invoke a deep sense of fire and become a powerful part of your individuality. This is just what you get to witness in Street Dancer 3. This Remo D’Souza directorial takes dancing and uplifts it to a whole new level of enthusiasm, excitement, and excitement.
Once the film opens, we meet a passionate Sahej (Varun Dhawan) who’s a spoilt brat that resides with his parents and his older brother in London. Sahej has one rule and that’s never to be Number 2. However, his joyful bubble of being the best dancer is quickly broken up by Inayat (Shraddha Kapoor), a Pakistani woman who has got the moves and swag. They have one aim and that is to prove their supremacy on the other. Just like an overly extreme India vs Pakistan cricket match, we see occasional and ferocious dance battles between both teams that are also always trash-talking every other. Everything changes when the ultimate and highly prestigious dance conflict called Ground Zero is declared. While both groups are prepping to win this contest, an incident happens that drastically changes their perspectives on their outlook to the competition.
Varun Dhawan implements his cool, flamboyant character who manages to capture your attention with his dominating display presence to perfection. His character’s enthusiasm for dancing comes from wanting to meet his brother’s dream of winning a competition he couldn’t win due to an injury. This inspiration is palpably visible in the candy chemistry he shares with his brother. On the flip side, Shraddha Kapoor is bold and unafraid; her swag and fashion definitely insert that wow factor into the movie. However, the character that takes Street Dancer 3 into the next level is Prabhu Deva. His dancing moves along with confident style will leave you hooked. The choreography of all of the dance sequences are brilliant as well as the VFX just adds to the magic.
The narrative would have left a deeper impact if the character and plot were researched a little more. Varun and Nora Fatehi’s relationship in the movie seems superficial and lacks that sizzling chemistry.
Street Dancer 3 is a visual treat, especially in 3D, and it is an entertainer through and through. The high-energy dance sequences and songs will keep you hooked until the end.
