We will go out and say it right at the beginning, there are perhaps only a few who can measure up to Prabhudeva when it comes to the fluidity and perfection in dance. His energy is infectious, the rhythm impeccable.
Like all notable auteurs, Prabhudeva’s choreography also has a unique style to it. One of the identifiable qualities of Prabhudeva’s dance composition is humour. From Mukkabala to Pettai Rap to Main Aisa Kyun Hoon, all tickle your funny bone along with your imagination. And that’s because humour comes to Prabhudeva naturally. Comedy is in his bones and it deeply reflects in all his work — both acting and dance. He is not just the king of dance, but in his own right, he is also a master in comedy.
