Happy New Year Hindi Movie Review



Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN 
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.lm.

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,

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!

No matter how much money the film eventually collects at the box office, Happy New Year, for all its visual opulence, has nothing new to offer nor is it a particularly happy narrative concoction. It has 'stale' written all over it. There is no dearth of gloss in Happy New Year, but everything else in the film, including the content and its treatment, are allowed to go for a toss.

The film relies more on the two-minute noodle brand of patriotism than it does on common sense in order to further the plot. This could have been a much better film if only it had dared to move out of its comfort zone. Happy New Year is a film that’s bound to make you feel good, but trust me, the feeling won’t last

Farah Khan's masala flick Happy New Year has everything going well businesswise but it's extremely low on content. It's grand, beautiful, shot in exotic locations across Dubai, has all the SRK moves which fans love, a hit Jodi , it's visually appealing but there is nothing else apart from that! The challenge is to entertain and Happy New Year falls short in entertaining, it's long length of over three hours being the weakest point.

Despite having everything going for it, you wonder why they didn’t fine-tune the screenplay a bit more. There are logic issues; there are sensibility issues and in a heist film, you can’t have that. Fortunately for Farah, she pulls out a trick every time you begin to look at your phone screen. Make this Diwali even more special with Happy New Year. One of the best entertainers of 2014.

Happy New Year’ is a long showreel of what Khan the director and Khan the superstar can do, which is this : put on display rippling eight  packs whenever you get the chance , bung in a song-and-dance whenever possible , and when there is a gap, shove in some dialogue-and-action. And when all else fails, rev up the patriotic fervor, because we all love our India, right?

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Mohar Basu Site:Koimoi
Happy New Year is two distinct films rolled in one. While the first hour is breezy, fun and pretty watchable, the second hour is a convoluted mess with a heist angle that doesn’t work, a romantic track that seems forced, the vivaciousness lacking from the camaraderie and the sappyness of a dukhbhari daastan of a backstory. It is a half baked film that uses all the regular heist and formulaic tools and naturally offers nothing unseen or unexpected.

  19. Hi - I have seen this movie in London today 24th October during Diwali and I would give 3/10. There is nothing new in SRK movie just about one man show who gets sympathy and then everything gets on his favor. Typical SRK massal who makes fun of others specially Abhishake Bacchan. I would never every suggest any one to spend their hard earned money on this movie. This movie is not worth it to see on cinema.

  23. 10 reasons its superflop

    Ok! Point one, great that he has got eight pack abs but what more? If body was the only thing we were interested in seeing then John would have been the biggest Bollywood star we have ever seen. His role in the movie doesn't seem interesting at all.

    Jackie Shroff

    He was a great actor when  he was young but it is time he accepts that his career in Bollywood is over and retires. Over the years any movie that he has acted in has flopped big time. Why would you cast this guy?


    Deepika Padukone's Role

    Whenever I see Deepika in the trailer or songs, I just get a feeling that this was probably a wrong choice of film for her. After Ram Leela this will definitely be a huge down. Her role seems to boring and spice less.

    Farah Khan Film

    As much as her films click, her movies are not that great and she should rather stick to choreographing dance steps. After her last movie, Tees Maar Khan I am scared to go watch her movie.

    Abhishek Bachchan

    The actor has talent and Bol Bachchan and Guru are proof of that but what the hell is he doing in this movie. His role and acting is so irritating. 

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sonu Sood

    Another actor gone to waste, he is capable of so much more but he is resorted to such cheap role of a dumb person with smoke blowing out his ears.

    Plot

    Weakest plot, seems like just another Dhoom movie and nothing else.

    No Sense Of Humour

    The so called jokes in the movie seemed so boring, there was absolutely no sense of humour in the dialogues.

    The trailer is the key to a good movie, as you show the best bits of the movie in the trailer to draw the audience. Here the trailer was only so bad, I can't imagine how the movie will be.

    aur director, aur shahrukh jinki movie mai bahut like karta hoon,
    unko batana chahiye ki kaise ek amir father apni aulaad ko doosre ke saath dekhega, to kya woh yeh nahi poochega ki tum to crore pati ho, phir tum dance competition mai kaise hissa le rahe ho,
    jo movie ko super hit bata raha hai, please pehle woh real mai ja to movie dekh le, ja kisi se confirm kar le.

  37. happy new year ka strong message.
    modi ji ne kaha achhe din aane waale hai.
    modi ji hard work kar rahe hai no doubt.
    magar farah khan aur shahrukh khan ne formula de diya,
    india mai jitne bhi chor hai unko olympic mai
    bhej do medal layenge, agar ho sake to olympic ko switzerland mai karao.
    medal ke saath black money bhi layenge.
    why bollywood continue make people fool.
    kyo movie mai jab robbery karne ke pehle step mai pass ho jata hai, aur modi ji ka duplicate
    kehta hai achhe din aa gaye, kya aise achhe din farah khan aur shahrukh khan india ko dena chahte hai, humaare desh mai waise hi crime bahut hai, yeh movie kya message deti hai,
    deepika kehti hai izzat nahi jaani chahiye total movie ne jo torture kiya,
    bahar country mai jab ko kisi ne dekha hoga woh kya sochega india ka top actor aur aisi movie,
    hum bhi jab koi hollywood movie release hoti hai usme kisi badi country ke president ke slogan ko chor use kare nahi dekha aaj tak. is movie ko kya national award milna chahiye, ja jo galat review deta hai usko jail mai daal dena chahiye.

  51. HAPPY NEW YEAR is a purely masala flick that has everything going in its favor business wise and if you can digest Farah Khan's obsession for her trademark kitsch of song and dance, obsession for SRK, then this one's for you. Director Farah Khan maybe just four movies old, but her trademark Bollywood kitsch is painfully predictable and requires an appetite for flamboyance.

  54. my review of HAPPY NEW YEAR:
    8-pack doesn’t disappoint! Laughter pack does! [2/5]

    Farah Khan’s HAPPY NEW YEAR has blockbuster written all over it. So is Farah Khan’s trademark sense of humor coming out of anything & everything from sexist scrutiny and racist remarks to murderous-merciless mocking at the purest human emotions people usually love to cherish! So if you find nothing bad in ‘alag sirf NAME hain, baaki sab SAME hain’ comment on how Korean and Chinese people look relatively identical to a common ignorant Indian; there are chances you will love HAPPY NEW YEAR for its unarguably pathetic gags, hamming performances and an uneventful heist-plot even any of Farah Khan’s cute triplet could come up to start with.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR is nothing but a wastrel celebration of two Khan’s collaboration for a gala event where audiences are cordially invited but their sensibility is taken for granted at many levels. The man on mission here is Charlie [Shah Rukh Khan], a son seeking revenge of his father’s unjust fate from a rich heartless fraud [Jackie Shroff]. To give him back what he deserves, Charlie plans to rob him of his diamonds worth gallons of millions. And there forms, a group of six losers as they love to call themselves with a mother-powered unmarried Parsi [Boman], a tapori [Abhishek], a bar dancer [Deepika], a young tech-savvy hacker [Vivaan] and a strapping & stripping stuntman [Sonu Sood]! But before the D-day comes, they have to be on stage participating in the ‘World Dance Championship’ i.e. ‘India’s got talent’ goes global!

    Being unapologetically self-assured about her idea of mass-entertainment, Farah hardly tries to sound or look smart when it comes to give us a plot tagged with predictability as its only nature. Do not think harder or rather not even attempt it and you will easily foresee the next sharp turn ahead. Same goes with the gags. It’s either someone who can’t speak English or someone who has hearing impairment to produce cheap word-plays. Before Shah Rukh playing the master-planner and the captain of the ship comes up with the punch line spoken thrice in the film, “Every loser gets at least one chance to emerge as the winner”; let me tell you the concept of losers shown here. The Parsi brat stammers. The bar dancer constantly gets humiliated as being ‘Bazaaru Aurat’ by no one lesser than our leading man himself and easily falls in trap with his charming looks and English speaking skills. How pitiable can our Indian ladies be! At least in bollywood movies! On the other hand, we have Sonu Sood playing a strong-built single-headed who can jump into a fight soon someone shows disrespect to his mother but he himself doesn’t hesitate mouthing foul words having sisters in center. Double standards! Whatever creates humor!

    With a tiring, tedious and repetitive 3 hours of duration, HAPPY NEW YEAR falls short of juicy dialogues, enjoyable dance numbers and praiseworthy performances. Only breathing space you notice is Shah Rukh’s magnetic screen presence, Deepika’s charismatic dance moves and Abhishek’s comic relief but as if Farah would not compromise with her instinct to ruin all emotions, she brings patriotism in the scene just before you try to locate the exit. You can be talent-killer. You can proudly be a robber. You also can be insensitively rude towards your fellow member of human race but just one patriotic song at the end with a tricolor in the backdrop and no one could ever question your heroism. Anyways, who bothers if the man in question is the king of Bollywood himself!

    I clearly remember having greater laughs in a couple of ‘Comedy night with Kapil’ episodes on TV where the cast of HAPPY NEW YEAR appeared as its promotional routine. Well, I better go search those on YouTube after resting my case here. That was epic! This is gimmick! A wafer pack full with air, if you get it! Watch it if you must! [2/5]

  58. Pathetic Movie with some non-laughable 'forced' action-comedy sequences. I'm lucky enough to save my money but wasted my time and broadband bandwidth for downloading this overly hyped piece of Despo & Chutzpah work by despo looking actor (some king) and director to make money. Director wanted to apply some mind this time (which she don't have) and guess what, failed miserably! Not even worth watching when it will be telecast on TV. Stardom fooling people. 1/5

  65. Omg - HNY - The worst SRK movie and probs the worst movie of the year! I was actually so upset after the movie that I couldnt sleep. SRK Fan for years but this made me doubt his position and actually made me appreciate Aamir Khan's work even more. SRK may be the richest actor in the world but come on, HNY waste a waste of time and loss of respect for someone I looked up too. Not sure why I feel so angry but I do. Looking forward to Aamir's next movie but not so much SRK's next movie.
