The Shahid Kapoor-Genelia D’Souza film Chance Pe Dance is drawing heavy scorn from movie critics.
Folks, here’s how some prominent critics have slammed Chance Pe Dance:
Chance Pe Dance leaves you unmoved….
The comedy seems forced, the emotions unreal (and the kinds seen in a number of other such films) and the script trite.
….Chance Pe Dance is the kind of film where you know the end and can’t wait to get there, even if it takes its own sweet time to do so.
Ken Ghosh’s dance-drama takes no chance in experimenting with storytelling style and ends up being an extended version of the music videos that he used to direct before making feature films.
….So in times when dance talent-hunt shows on television promise more drama and entertainment, you find no good reason why to give this dance a chance.
CHANCE PE DANCE tries hard to present the story of one such aspirant, but fails miserably….
What bogs the film down is that it’s too predictable from start to end. However, predictability is not the sole hitch here. The story doesn’t have the zing to keep you hooked to the screen for most parts and also, it unravels at such a lethargic pace that you break into a yawn at several points of the narrative.
Chance Pe Dance tries to combine a dance movie with a Bollywood-cinderella story and comes up empty-handed.
….This is a dance film without one memorable dance track.
But the biggest let-down is the script. It meanders and stumbles along bewilderingly.
