Every once in a while there comes a film which you know will only focus on the basics of Bollywood, which is, nothing else but entertainment. Munna Michael is just that film. The 2 hour 20 minute film is full of dialoguebaazi, whistle-worthy moments, dance numbers and a lot more. There is hardly a dull moment here.

Munna (Tiger Shroff) is an orphan brought up by an ageing dancer, Michael (Ronit Roy) in a Mumbai chawl. Munna grows up idolising Michael Jackson and dance means the world to him. To make his dream of grooving like the King of Pop come true and help his ailing father, he even agrees to teach dance to the dreaded gangster Mahindar Fauji (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Their bromance turns ugly when both Munna and Mahindar end up falling in love with Dolly (Nidhhi) who is also a dancer and wants to make it big and prove her family wrong.

The film is helmed by Sabbir Khan who has previously made films like Kambakkht IshqHeropanti and BaaghiMunna Michael is Sabbir and Tiger's third collaboration and their off-screen bond clearly reflects on the big screen as well. The film-maker focuses on Tiger's USP and spreads a whole bunch of dance and action scenes throughout the film without paying much attention to the script. You can almost put up an alarm clock on a 15-minute repeat and there'll be a song-fight, song-fight and so on.

The film has been well-edited. The action and dance sequences are peppy and keep you glued to the screen and the film has a lot of goosebumps moments as well! The music of the film is decent. The song Ding Dang is completely out of place and makes you want to rip your hair apart but the rest of the songs make up for it, Main Hoon being our absolute favourite.

Coming to the performances, Tiger dances like a dream and it's hard to believe that someone can move every inch of the body with such grace and ease. He's great with his massy dialogues like "Munna jhagda nahi karta, munna sirf peetta hai". His back-flips, mid-air splits, kicks, glides, moonwalks or a just simple bare-body shot, all force you to root and whistle for him.

Nawazuddin as the gangster Mahinder is the clear star of this one. He brings a new flavour and adds a new dimension to his terribly silly, horribly funny dance routine and his contagious english makes you chuckle and roll on the floor.

Debutant Nidhhi Agerwal hardly has anything to do in the film and probably that is the reason she ends up trying to do a lot. She shows potential in bits but will really have to pull up her socks and pick the right roles if she wants to find her foot.

On the whole, one shouldn't expect a lot from Munna Michael. If you're looking for logic and quality content, we'd recommend you give it a miss. For those looking for a popcorn flick over the weekend, this is it. For me, Munna Michael is 3/5 stars
