Film: Anybody Can Dance(ABCD); Starring: Prabhu Deva, Kay Kay Menon, Ganesh Acharya; Directed by Remo D'Souza; Rating: ***
"Indians don't have a mind to think," mock-whispers Kay Kay Menon, playing the sort of slimeball you thought went out of style with Prem Chopra.
Menon, who once was a formidable actor, hams it to the hilt as a kind of Mogambo of the dancing world who thinks dancing is for big bucks, and also for big... well you know the "f" word that rhymes with bucks.
Prabhu Deva, God bless his "sole", is the other polarity. He dances because... well, he has to. He imparts his skills to a ragamuffin bunch of street kids who seem to have auditioned for Breakin' that street-smart film about using breakdance as a form of selfexpression that came way back in 1984.
