Makarand's last wish is for Dia to revive his dance school, Ajanta, which has been shut down for a long time. When Dia comes back to her hometown, she discovers that the people in the town have forgotten about the art of Indian classical dance. Furthermore, the town's theater, which was once a vibrant cultural center, has now been turned into a shopping mall. Dia is determined to revive the dance school and the theater. She seeks the help of her childhood friend, Doctor Saab (played by Darshan Jariwala), who is now a local politician, but he refuses to help as he is more interested in building a new mall. Dia then decides to convince the people of the town to help her by performing in the play that she plans to stage at the theater. She meets a bunch of eccentric and colorful characters, such as Anokhi (played by Kavita Lad), who runs a restaurant but dreams of becoming a singer, and Najma (played by Divya Dutta), a woman who wants to dance but is afraid to do so because of her weight. Dia's journey to revive the dance school and the theater is filled with ups and downs, but she never loses her determination. She faces opposition from Doctor Saab and his goons, who burn down the sets of her play, but she still manages to stage the play with the help of the locals. The play is a success, and the people of the town rediscover their love for Indian classical dance. Madhuri Dixit's performance in this movie is outstanding. She lights up the screen with her infectious energy and dazzling dance moves. Her chemistry with the other actors is effortless, and she brings out the best from each of them. Darshan Jariwala and Raghuvir Yadav, who play supporting roles in the movie, also deliver noteworthy performances. The music in the movie is composed by Salim-Sulaiman, with lyrics by Jaideep Sahni. The songs are a mix of traditional and modern, and they all add to the movie's overall charm. The standout songs in the movie are "Aaja Nachle," "O Re Piya," and "Ishq Hua." Overall, Aaja Nachle is an enjoyable movie that celebrates the beauty and power of Indian classical dance. It addresses important issues such as the loss of cultural identity and the importance of community engagement. The movie is entertaining, heartwarming, and inspiring, and it is worth watching for Madhuri Dixit's performance alone.
