Chance Pe Dance



The story of a talented and passionate young actor/dancer named Sameer. Positive and brimming with energy, Sameer juggles various jobs while working towards getting his big break in the industry.

Along the way he meets the vivacious Tina, a choreographer with dreams of her own. She's appreciative of his talent and encourages him to remain strong-willed.

Just when Sameer is promised his big break, he is rendered homeless and finds himself struggling to make ends meet. Not one to lose heart, he begins teaching dance in a school to young kids who have no real interest in the art. When all of a sudden, the director who promised to launch Sameer, decides to go the "talent hunt" route, a shattered Sameer decides to put his dreams on hold and divert his complete focus towards the kids. He coaxes them into enrolling in a prestigious inter-school dance competition and, despite numerous hurdles, trains them to win.

Later, Tina and the kids urge Sameer to enter the talent hunt (which is now a popular reality show on TV) and take his one shot at fame. Sameer wins and eventually becomes what he was destined to be, a Superstar.

My dh mentioned that Book of Eli looks good, and he NEVER mentions movies he wants to see, so hopefully we'll see that one. (It does look good) And Fish Tank looks like something I'd like...
