Happy New Year – Movie Review

2.5 Stars (2.5 / 5)

“Happy New Year” – As the name depicts it’s a kind of Happy go Bollywood movie. The first half was very slow and I got depressed that another disaster from Farah Khan. However, the movie regained the strength & soul after the interval and could get the hold over the audience emotionally. Overall it was nice watching the colorful presentation with beautiful sets and lightings. The lights at Dubai Palm Island and other dance sets added richness to the movie which is a usual Farah Khan element as was in Om Shanti Om.

Shahrukh Khan flaunting his 10 Packs abs with lean ripped muscles, an improved version of Dard-e-Disco. You will find him doing the same signature style hand lift along with motivational dialogues as usual. Obviously no need to comment over his acting skills, you can find a good performance from his side as an actor. Deepika Padukon looking good and nice dance sequences with item song ‘Lovely’.

Brilliant performance by Booman Irani and Sonu Sood. Abhishek Bachan in double role also did justice to his role. Vivaan Shah the new guy (Son of Nazruddin Shah) not much in spot light but seems a good start for him in Bollywood.


Story is all about a bunch of losers all settled for a big robbery with the support of World Dance Championship and nobody in the group can really shake even their legs. Dramatically head towards accomplishing their mission keeping the tribute and love towards our country India by winning the dance competition internationally. Robbery is a revenge against the villain Jacky Shroff which is the main stream reason for the movie.

My final verdict is don’t expect other than a typical Farah Khan presentation and it’s a good one- time family entertainer for most.
