Is this the best choreographed music video of all time ?
Never seen anything quite like it. Those costumes, those colors, hundreds of backup dancers perfectly in sync and two ridiculously beautiful leads. It's just otherworldly.
I don't understand a word but I can't deny that it didn't me long to start dancing with them.

I wanted to be snotty, but have to agree. It was pretty fabulous. Hollywood isn’t doing anything of the kind anymore. It was beautiful and joyous.

I'm with ya OP. Didn't have any idea what they were singing about but they were very beautiful and the dancing/choreography was fantastic.
That's a lot of energy on display. (Guy was handsome too.)

All I think about is that it must stank on that set, cause Indians don't use deodorant and all those folks dancing must work up some sweat.

Ha! Knew it had to be Bollywood. They’re good at this kind of choreography and they’ve been doing it for decades.
Have another Bollywood classic to feast your eyes on. You can pretty much figure out the plot from the gestures.

I don't see what is so special - this is Bollywood 101.
And no, there aren't hundreds of dancers - maybe 50 at most.
This same scene has been done thousands of times in hundreds of Indian films. Not sure why you would rate this as the best of all time? I guess you've never watched Bollywood - that's the only explanation.k

R24, it's the same reason that all English-language popular singers sing with an affected Southern-US or Black accent. Even if they're from Liverpool or Canberra.

R24 It's a style. Your comment is ironic because there was a time just a few woman ghost sung thousands of songs. For example S. P. Sailaja

Bollywood numbers certainly have pizazz, but lack depth. It's a lot of front-line repeats, and the film editing jumps around in a shoot that takes days. Indian dance is about great arm gestures and beauty, though.
For actual great choreography on film, dance numbers that have a through-line, a purpose, serve as better examples of 'great' music video choreography. An example: OK Go's "I Won't Let You Down"

As a sidebar, while not a 'music video,' this live Tony performance assembles multiple show casts, a witty song, choreography that not only showcases each production, but makes a point, and no editing; performed live, of course.

Additionally, one must consider music videos that may not have the best or most difficult movements, but those that became iconic as choreography of their era, particularly the height of MTV:

If OP's viddy interested you, check out LAGAAN. It's a Bollywood spectacular that is a historical drama about 19th Century India under the Raj that is supplemented with lengthy Bollywood musical scenes. The producers wanted to show what India could do... and they put it all into one movie. The musical segments are stunning and the photography throughout is just wonderful.
Shirtless Aamir Khan is not to be missed.

In terms of popularity, and choreography that became iconic, while not a personal favorite, "Thriller" is the most famous dance-inclusive music video of the entire MTV era.
OP did not specify best-choreographed, but without the hyphen, implied the 'best music video that was choreographed."
Yeah. I'm a bitch.

NO R32 one doesn't have to consider "iconic" crap collage "dancing" by Janet Jackson, garbage faux choreography created from thousands of edits. You have zero taste.

This is. Best performed, too.

Again, snide, cuntlette R42, OP is discussing 'best music videos.' Some of my examples are not to my taste, and the old Fred Astaire dances and my Tonys clip are sidebars. "Best" is not necessarily the most intricately choreographed, but perhaps 'best known' or 'most liked.'
OP's clip isn't even a music video, but a scene from a feature film. Is "best" the biggest, the most popular? Try the linked Beyoncé montage.
Meanwhile, cretin R42 has yet to provide a single 'best' or even 'better' example, because R42 is too stupid to figure out how to add a link.

Hopping back to Bollywood dance numbers, this one is a wacky vintage classic:
|by Anonymous||reply 45||09/04/2020|
"Best choreographed music video" doesn't have to be a big group number. Sia's "Chandelier" would be among the best music videos that fully incorporate dance.
But don't let 2,283,880,284 viewers dissuade you, R42, you cretin.

Those are scenes from films, not music videos.
If we're going that route, nothing beats "Cool" in 'West Side Story,' one of the best choreographed dance scenes in cinematic history.

"LAGAAN" is a great movie and the only Bollywood nominated for the Best Foreign Language Oscar. I have zero interest in sports but by the end you will even know how Cricket is played!
