Storyline

London, an overcrowded cafe, one table to share. Two strangers tell each other "how I met my fiancé" stories to kill time. Rikki (Abhishek Bachchan) met his fiance Anaida (Lara Dutta) at the Ritz in Paris and Alvira (Preity Zinta) met her prince charming Steve (Bobby Deol) at Madame Tussauds in London. Stories unfold and by the end of their session the two have alarmingly gotten attracted to each other. What follows is a crazy love story full of lies, deceits and a complicated quadrangle - Rikki and Alvira have gotten themselves as well as Anaida ad Steve in to a lovely mess, where each of them have to think quick on their feet, dancing around each other's emotions playing musical chairs and lying through their teeth. If opposites attract - then this is it. Written by Official Source

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 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!
