A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Aqua flirts with a boy she's never met over her cell phone. All the girls get jealous when they think the others have unfair advantages to become the star of the movie, but loyalty wins out in the end. The only big cultural obstacle the Cheetahs face in India is dance; a Bollywood choreographer scoffs at their moves until they have a friendly dance-off.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this TV movie designed for tweens -- the third for the super-popular Cheetah Girls -- includes some very light romance and flirting, with one kiss. One girl starts a relationship via cell phone. There are positive messages about diversity, loyalty, and the importance of friendship.

Is It Any Good?
Young fans of the Cheetah Girls and their music probably won't be disappointed. Everyone else, well… While you'd expect more fun Bollywood beats to permeate the Cheetahs' pop sound, only two songs (particularly "One World") really deliver. The rest -- way too many for a feature this length -- are pretty boring and sound the same, and you can't even tell whose voice is whose.
Music aside, the story is cute enough. The innocent romance between Aqua and Amar (Kunal Sharma), and the way they end up meeting, is rather sweet -- as is the flirtation between Rahim (Rupak Ginn), the big Bollywood star, and the shy choreographer. And woven into the story are a few lessons for the Cheetahs on loyalty, embracing change, and facing obstacles. This makes up for some of the corny lines, silly misunderstandings, and treacly girl-bonding moments meant only for tweens' enjoyment.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
