Storyline

The film begins with a mysterious gypsy-like musician leading the crowds at Waterloo station in London in a dance to the title song. At the station, two strangers, Rikki Thukral and Alvira Khan, wait for their respective fiancés. Rikki is a fun-loving Punjabi boy from Bhatinda who lives in Southall, while Alvira is a middle class Pakistani girl from Lahore who is more assimilated into British culture. The two share a table in a café together and to kill the time they talk about how they met their partners-to-be. Rikki, handsome but primitive in the Desi way, says that he met his fiancé, Anaida Raza, at the Hôtel Ritz Paris, the same night that Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Al-Fayed left the hotel to take their last journey together. Rikki explains "When two lovers die, another two are born", as he fell in love with Anaida that night. Alvira says she met her fiancé, the dashing lawyer Steve Singh at Madame Tussauds in London when he saved her from death by a falling Superman wax ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Goofs

During the scene where Abhishek is telling the story of him and Lara he mentions that she is a Pakistani and he met her in 1997 around the time when Princess Diana was in Paris, France. This was fifty years after an Independant India and Pakistan were created. In one scene with him Lara he says to himself "She will take revenge for the past 60 years" So he jumped ten years ahead.

Dance Bolly Dance !
27 June 2007 | by (LA, CA) – See all my reviews

Bollywood certainly at it's nearly-best, DANCE BABY DANCE delivers in ways both standard and special. Even though we've seen these handsome & curvy thesps in other top Bollywood productions, all deliver broad but colorful performances.

Acting, music, singing, & choreography seem classically Bollywood - all of it sweetly proportioned to the generous talents involved.

Wonderful location shooting predominates, especially pulsing Paris and lovely London - a nice change-up from the usual Mumbai sound-stages.

Whimsical story rarely if ever takes a dark turn; light & frothy predominates, built around common theme of romantic sleight-of-hands. The exuberance is festive throughout, with poignancy never far away.

Special kudos to always reliable Bachchan, who plays a kind of MC or host to the giddy romantic roundelay.

This is the kind of superb Bollywood fantasia that really merits a theatrical viewing....although with limited distribution DVD-on-your-Plasma is next best thing!
