Apparently, anybody can direct. Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor’s latest venture, ABCD 2, has done exceptional business at the opening weekend, bagging the place for the biggest opener of 2015.

The 3D dance movie earned a whopping INR 14.3 crores on its opening day, breaking the record of Akshay Kumar’s Gabbar is Back opening, with an even bigger figure of INR 14.51 crores the next day.

Sunday proved even better for ABCD 2 as audiences flocked to the cinemas, after the heavy rain showers on Saturday, minting INR 16.51 crores on the final day of the weekend alone.

The movie has received mixed reviews with many criticizing not only the acting performances of the lead characters but also their failure to match their dancing skills to that of complementary professional dancers.

The storyline is inspired by a group of Mumbai-based real life dancers from Nala Sopara, who made it to international hip-hop championships, fighting against all odds, a few years ago. The movie, dotted with beaten-to-death clichés, starts off with the group of dancers reviled for copying others and then, given a second chance to prove their mettle.

The movie has all the typical ingredients of a Bollywood movie ranging from a forced maa-beta sentimental relationship to the usual over-the-top patriotism. While the storyline failed miserably, the spellbinding dance numbers did make an impression with the audience, saving the movie from bombing at the box office.

Directed by Remo D’Souza, the movie also stars choreographer, Prabhu Deva, re-assuming the role of the group’s dance mentor and others including professional dancer Lauren Gottlieb, Raghav Juyal and Dharmesh Yelande.
