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.
