A young girl is brought up by a classical singer and grows up to become a very good dancer. Unaware of her identity, a group of students ask her to take part in their dance show.
Dance in itself is a fantastic topic to make a film about. And when it is classical dance, the scope widens. In that sense, Anaan comes across as a good initiative. But Anaan suffers the fate of a potentially good chicken curry that gets spoilt due to excess masala.
A classical singer, Vashudha (Tulaskar) rescues a baby from the clutches of some tribesmen who are on the verge of killing it. She adopts the baby and names her Neel (Behere). Neel grows up to be a dancer and is the apple of Vasudha's eye. However, Neel is struggling with accepting her identity and sexuality. In between this, she meets a group of students, one of who is a German doing research on Lord Shiva. At their behest, she agrees to participate in a dance show with them. But little does she know that the people who were trying to kill her as a baby are still on the lookout for her. Also, our protagonist Yuvraj (Shinde) has fallen in love with Neel.
The dance sequences are fantastic, to say the least. But when the filmmaker introduces a villain and a love angle, things start going out of hand. Interestingly, all the actors have done a good job but Prarthana, Omkar and Sukhada stand out. Sukhada's accent could've been done away with, though.
Anaan is an ode to Lord Shiva's Ardhanari Nateshwar form and his dance. If it was restricted to just that, the film could've worked wonders. Alas, it doesn't.
