Bhangra Paa Le Reviews (Top Critics)
By Rahul Desai

A new-age dance movie is a cute beast. The rhythm of the writing almost never matches the rhythm of the super-agile humans and their intensely choreographed energy. There are only so many ways to depict the healing power of song and dance in Indian cinema - where song-and-dance is already a deep-rooted narrative device - without coming across as utterly unoriginal and derivative.

Sunny Kaushal can dance, he can act and he is sure to leave you smitten by the end of this dance flick. He's the biggest take away from this film. But not without the brilliant support of his co-star Rukshar Dhillon, who makes a cracking debut in this one. Bhangra Paa Le may not have the most intriguing storyline, but it will leave you smiling and grooving as it weaves a story around the jolliest folk dance of the country.
