Happy New Year
Six would-be thieves enter a prestigious dance competition as a cover for their larger goal of pulling off a major heist
Starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, BomanGrover, Sonu Sood & Vivaan Shah in lead, _Happy New Year_ is made to tickle your funny bones. Film has been directed by Farah Khan. Though she has only 4 films in her director career,SRK starred in 3 of them and resu is blockbuster every time! Even HNY broke all the first weekend record of Dhoom 3 and crossed 100 crore in its first weekend which is a big feat for a Bollywood movie.
Back to the film, this film is about revenge of Charlie, Charlie’s father had been killed by Charan Grover played by Jackie Shroff! So made a masterplan of robbing diamonds from the “Shalimar Vault” which can be open only by Charan Grover and his son Vicky Grover’s finger prints. But to enter the Vault they must participate a dance championship called WDC (World Dance Championship). Why they need to participastanow Charlie’s team nominated for the WDC, can they rob the diamonds etc, you will get all the answers by watching the movie! But should you watch this 3 hour long heist thriller? Yes!! Because inspite of the long runtime, film never let you feel bore. Film is funny & first of its kind! Its amazing how a heist film can be so hilarious. First part is funny and has scenes to tickle your funny bones, second half is brilliant! Heist sequence too was superb! Acting wise Shah Rukh Khan stands out to be the best. The role was a cakewalk for an actor of his caliber. Others too did well job, especially Abhishek Bachchan as Nandu Bhide (he had double role) was damn funny. SRK-Deepika’s chemistry sizzles once again.
Overall a nice and rocking entertainer! Just go with a free & fresh mind and have some “ROFL!” My ratings would be 7/10.
