Happy New Year is the story of six losers – Charlie aka Chandramohan Sharma (Shahrukh Khan), Mohini (Deepika Padukone), Nandu Bhide (Abhishek Bachchan), Jag (Sonu Sood), Tammy (Boman Irani) & Rohan (Vivaan Shah). Charlie the captain of the looser’s team draws a master plan to rob diamonds from Charan Grover (Jackie Shroff) to take revenge of his father’s death Manohar Sharma (Anupam Kher). The movie is centered around a dance competition (World Dance Championship – WDC) organized in Dubai. Team India, the team of 6 losers, ultimately wins by robbing the diamonds and also winning the World Dance Championship.
Shahrukh Khan comes up with another charming performance, its only him who can make even a ridiculous dialogue sound great and makes it memorable, a treat for King Khan’s fan. Deepika Padukone with her sizzling hot dance moves, gorgeous looks and excellent acting, makes you fall in love with character Mohini, She truly is Bollywood’s Mohini.
Abhishek Bachchan in double role as Nandu Bhide & Vicky Grover, has given a good performance after a long time. His comic timing with Tammy (Boman Irani) is just fantastic, its a laughter ride. Sonu Sood with his grim look and 6 packs does his job well. Vivaan Shah the new-comer as hacker didn’t do bad either. Jackie Shroff still has the Jaggu Dada effect. Happy New Year has all the Farah Khan ingredient to make it an entertaining movie, while Music from Vishal & Shekhar is enjoyable.
Happy New Year has a simple story line, we can even call it repeated, but screenplay, dialogues & likable humor makes it delightful. Loaded with Super Stars, the performance from the lead cast is flawless.
The Bottom Line: Happy New Year is a full-on Bollywood masala entertainer with bit of love, romance, humor, dance, music, action, crime, emotion, patriotism and beautiful landscapes of Dubai. Watch it and have a very Happy New Year!
