Music + Dance Works = Yes. Anything Else = No.
7 January 2017 | by ravisinger86See all my reviews

Disco Dancer Directed By B. Subhash is A Musical Drama. Script is Below The Mark. Screenplay is Strictly Average. Direction Works Only in Parts. Music is Awesome. Dialogues Are Fine. Editing Could Have Been Better. Action is Less Effective.

Anil (Mithun Chakraborty), A Street Performer is Scarred By The Memory Of The Rich P.N. Oberoi (Om Shivpuri) Humiliating & Insulting His Mother (Gita Siddharth) in An Incident During His Childhood. When David Brown, The Manager (Om Puri) is Fed Up Of Indian Disco Champion's Tantrums Sam (Karan Razdan) And Looks For New Talent, He Happens To Watch Anil Dance-Walking Across The Street. Renamed as 'Jimmy', The Rising Disco Star Must Take The Throne From Sam, He Also Wins Heart Of Rita (Kim Yashpal), Oberoi's Daughter.

Acting Wise Mithun Chakraborty Excels In Dance As Well As in Emotional Scenes. Om Shivpuri is Good. Karan Rajdan & Kim Are Disappointing. Om Puri Does Well In His Limited Screen Time. Geeta Siddhart & Rajesh Khanna Are Just Fine.

Music By Bappi Lahiri is Awesome. Music is Best Part Of The Movie. Most Of The Songs Are Considered Classic Like "Goron Ki Na Kalo Ki" By Suresh Wadkar & Usha Mangeshkar,"Yaad Aa Raha Hai Tera Pyar" By Bappi Lahiri,"I Am A Disco Dancer" By Bappi Lahiri And "Koi Yahan Nache Nache" By Bappi Lahiri & Usha Uthup.

Disco Dancer Will Be Remembered For Mithun Chakraborty's Dance & Bappi Lahiri's Music. A Must Watch For Mithun Fans.
