Happy New Year (2014) Rating is 2.60/5
You’ll find yourself chuckling and cringing alternately while watching Happy New Year.I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for Happy New Year. If its indulgences were trimmed, this might have been a more enjoyable fiThe screenplay itself is painfully predictable, and the heist plan is explained repeatedly in long-drawn detail, just in case we’re dummies. Logic is sacrificed at the altar of convenience in this script, and an overall feeling of been-there-seen-that hangs over the film.
It’s all about Indiawaale, and while Sonu Sood stays consistent and Deepika inevitably dazzles, it is Shah Rukh himself who appears the most out of place -- in a movie made to rest on his shoulders. Perhaps they piled too much onto him; perhaps the decades of raising those arms into that iconic pose have taken their toll... Either way, Happy New Year never gets to soar.
Farah Khan by now, seems to know audience's taste when it comes to masala movies. And maybe that's why she makes absolute no mistake while serving the dish called HAPPY NEW YEAR. The film is a bit stretched with its run time going to almost 3 hours, the comic moments, dance and music keeps you engaged. All in all, HAPPY NEW YEAR is definitely a smash hit film, which has blockbuster written all over it. The film will set new records in the days to come. Go for it!
The story is simple, perched on a lavish canvas - glitzy, glamorous, gorgeous bodies (read: male torso) and with self-deprecating humour which stands out and entertains in parts (a recap of moments from SRK's own films!). The first half spends too much time setting a plot that's fairly uncomplicated. It's not a film about an ingenious heist (far from 'Oceans Eleven') or dance, it's a film about everything genuinely Bollywood - where logic gets a 'fit', gloss covers up the glitches..
