Burlesque: A Celebration of music and icons

I am a sucker of musical performance, it is rare to see singers and dancers act on the big screen, same as actors dancing and singing. As for the followers of Cher and Christina Aguilera it was dream come true to see them together performing and acting in Columbia Pictures’ Burlesque. The movie will be shown in all cinemas beginning February 2 and it was directed by Steven Antin. The musical drama film won as the Best Original Song in the 2010 Golden Globe Awards.

Burlesque follows the fulfillment of the dreams of two women; Tess (Cher) to save her Burlesque Lounge from shutting down and Ali (Aguilera) to show her talent and to be a star. By their passion, that two women crossed path and help each other to fulfill what they wanted.

This was the first ever lead role for a movie done by Christina Aguilera, and she did it pretty well. I like the way she played her role a witty, funny and ambitious Ali who will do everything and anything just to be on top of the stage. While Cher, she is truly an icon as multi awarded and over-all performer. I was so impressed in one of her performance in the movie.

The story of Burlesque was simple, but the way it was executed made a difference, including the choice of songs, actors and the set up. Not much of a spoiler, I was hoping for a Christina and Cher showdown but it didn’t happen in the movie. But expect “full vocal power” performance from the two of them in the movie.

Burlesque also stars Eric Dane, Cam Gigandet, Julianne Hough, Alan Cumming, Peter Gallagher, Kristen Bell and Stanley Tucci.
