Sahej (Dhawan) and Inayat (Kapoor) are professional dancers from India and Pakistan, respectively, who em-bark on a game of one-upmanship in the streets of London. They aspire to beat each other in dance. The warring groups start with minor arguments and proceed to one of the biggest dance challenges in the world where they join forces for a larger cause. While 'Street Dancer 3D' is a dance entertainer, director Remo D’Souza follows the journey of the performers on stage and in life.

While the plot is predictable, the film is a colourful collage of different dance forms like contemporary, jazz, krump, afro, locking and popping, animation tutting, urban and slow-mo. D’Souza also introduces some dance pros from around the world and uses VFX to his advantage to keep things visually exciting for the audience.

The lead pair, Kapoor and Dhawan, showcases D’Souza’s unique style. In a character who possesses impeccable dancing skills but is high on attitude, Fatehi (as Mia) portrays a glam diva. Prabhudeva’s act as dancer-turned-restaurateur and the new version of the ‘Muqabla’ song brings back the charm of the 90s.

Apart from their relatable depiction of desi-at-heart NRIs, Kapoor and Dhawan have worked hard on their dance performances. It shows on the screen, despite them being surrounded by highly-talented dancers.

But the film is too long. You also can’t overlook the haphazard writing that disconnects the first half of the movie from the second. But it includes all the ingredients to appeal to the youth and dance lovers.
