Movies on dance is a rarity on Indian cinema. Films like Salangai Oli, Poda Podi and ABCD were made in the past. Joining the list is Lakshmi. Directed by Vijay, the movie is about the aspiration of a ten-year-old girl who wants to achieve big in dance.

She takes to rigorous ways and gets trained by the best in the business to achieve her dream. How she manages it forms the crux.Vijay has managed to render an interesting story and with right emotions pulls it off well.

A dance movie is incomplete without Prabhudeva. He is right there delivering his best to make sure the movie clicks.The movie has a good star cast that includes Prabhudeva, Aishwarya Rajesh, Divya Pandey, Karunakaran among others. Music is by Sam CS.

The trailer and promos aroused greater curiosity. And the movie does live up to expectation.The story is about a young kid Lakshmi (Divya Pandey) who wants to dance to glory. Her mother Aishwarya Rajesh is against dance.

Without her knowledge Lakshmi joins a dance school. She enters a competition where she loses. But there enters Prabhudeva. He understands Lakshmi's passion for dance. Insists that she gets another chance.

He later becomes her coach and starts training her. After heavy training, Lakshmi goes to compete in Pride of India. What happens then forms the crux.Lakshmi revolves around the young child.

She is amazingly talented and pulls it off well. she emotes well and brings out disappointment, joy, anger and agony well. Watch out for Prabhudeva. He is splendid and delivers it with aplomb. Dance comes naturally for him.

He is the flesh and blood of the movie. Aishwarya Rajesh as loving mom is good. She has a meaty role to do. Vijay has managed to write an engrossing story that clicks well in parts. Dance makes it more interesting. Lakshmi manages a decent watch.

Lakshmi - Dance baby dance
