  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-3
When it comes to films, there are many of them which have been a 'tribute' to varied forms of dancing, right through the ages of Bollywood. Be it Mithun Chakraborty grooving in DISCO DANCER and DANCE DANCE or the dancing sensation Sudha Chandran in the inspiring film NACHE MAYURI

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-5
No Elvis this. Yet his thrusts have a lot of pelvis. He 'locks', 'pops' and 'breaks'. He's fast, smooth and footloose. The heart of this story rests on the dance floor, but dares to step out too. Aarav Anand's (Saahil) life pirouettes on one big dream - he wants to join his idol Caesar's dance group.

  •  Rediff -Nishi Tiwari Rating-4
The Wikipedia entry of Sahil Prem’s dance movie Mad About Dance describes the film as ‘Essentially a dance film, it focuses on the youth, their dreams, anxieties, disappointments and hopes for their future.’And while on a superficial level that may be true, the film unfortunately

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-4
Saahil Prem plays the lead role in this dance based film of an aspiring dancer who wants to represent India in a world dance championship. Of course the task isn't that simple. He needs to get approval for a loan from a bank where we get to watch the entire film as a flashback about his

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-6
MAD is about Aarav Anand (Saahil Prem)’s passionate pursuit to learn dance and he wants to train under none other than Ceasar, a famed dancer based in Sheffield, UK. Cyrus and his troupe of uppity dancers are however not convinced about Aarav’s talent and he is rejected from entering

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-3
In an interview to Koimoi earlier, Saahil had explained how the film was born out of his own experiences. It is hard to believe it because the film’s story lacks soul. For someone who has lived through the film, the effort seemed very superficial. Not to mention, the film’s casting was very weak.

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-5
Hot on the heels of Remo D'Souza's ABCD, Mad About Dance is a small step (up) for desi teenybopper dance flicks. Still at an embryonic stage of this genre, MAD is no Footloose or Honey, but its energy is hard to ignore. Even though maker-choreographer Saahil Prem has a long way to

  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-3
There have been multiple attempts to generate a Step Up in Bollywood. Fast Forward, Let's Dance are a couple of examples. However except ABCD they have completely failed to make a mark. You would wish that these failure serves as lessons for anyone who wants to attempt a dance film.

  •  Book My Show -Tanaya Ramyani Rating-4
While watching a dance film, we sort of have a checklist on our minds. Dynamic dances, beautiful romantic leads and an enviable cool dance crew. Unfortunately, Saahil Prem‘s "M.A.D: Mad About Dance" lacked all of it.Aarav is a passionate dancer, who dreams of creating a

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-3
There is a fantastic dum for everyone who loves to watch some good dance, but only in the last twenty to thirty minutes. In order to witness this, you will have to sit through this never ending film till the finale portions. In short, this dance based film is on the lines of slow dancing,
