10. Last but not the least, SRK’s team won this year’s IPL T20. Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Kings XI Punjab by three wickets, which was held in M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
I know this review is very late, but I thought it’s worth sharing for those who are still planning to watch. I was very hesitant to watch this movie as majority of reviews were negative and many said it’s really not worth watching. I just wanted to give a try (watch) as to know how much bad this movie is! Is this movie really average/bad like SRK’s previous movie Chennai Express or worst like his rival Salman’s recent movie Kick?
Yes, you read the headline right. After watching the movie, I found that this multi-starrer film – Happy New year is far better than movies – CE and Kick. Both the movies were illogical and irritating, though it had few funny moments; they almost made me get out of the theatre! Though this movie is combination of all sorts of Hollywood flicks, believe me it’s worth watching. Tell me which movie in recent times is not a copy or inspiration of other/Hollywood flick?
Coming to the story of HNY, this is a story of six losers – Shahrukh Khan (Boxer), Boman Irani (Partner of SRK’s father Anupam Kher), Abhishek Bachchan (photocopy of rival Jakie Sheroff’s son), Vivan Shah (Hacker), Deepika Padukone (Dancer) and Sonu Sood (who was in Army). SRK, who is on verge to take revenge on his father’s death, makes a team – Charlie’s Angels! These five of them are intelligent in one or the other way and the captain of the ship Shahrukh would reach his goal only with these angels. How they meet, plan and destroy the enemy (Jackie Sheroff) is the story all about.
Like many other non-logical movies made in Bollywood these days, this movie also has loopholes, but definitely is not among them (non sense). All characters are given special preference and equal role. It’s not at all ‘One man-SRK’ film.
You laugh and laugh… that’s for sure. Everyone’s comedy timing is too good. Though Deepika has repeated her role of ‘slang language or accent or whatever!’ (CE-Tamil slang, HNY-English slang), she will make you laugh. SRK, though does comedy at times, has a serious type of role in this movie.
Cinematography (especially the settings of the dance contest) is good. All songs are good except one – ‘Non Sense Ki Night’, one of the worst song and dance ever! My fav pick is ‘Radhe Radhe (Satkeli)’.
The drawback which I found was of dance (thought it is depicted as they don’t know to dance), it should have been considered little as they were representing India in the competition. Deepika made to wear too much of shorts which didn’t look good. A little more consideration for her character (she was not given due respect being the only female in the team) and costume (as few dresses seemed too colourful) would have done good (though she looks good in whatever she dons). These two can be ignored as the script demanded so!
Hated Shahrukh’s six packs to be frank, but loved, Sonu Sood’s body. In fact, he was the limelight for his well-built body in the whole movie. You can also find in this movie various dialogues manipulated (made comedy-like Deepika quoting Chak De India in her own way, Shahrukh saying his own Om Shanti Om dialogues, all of these would make you laugh. My favourite new dialogue is ‘kismat badi kutti cheez hai, saala kabi bi palat jati hai’.
Last but not the least, the closing credits of the movie is wonderful, it will make you glued to your seat. Many of them knew SRK’s son – Abram was introduced in the movie, but did you know Farah’s triplets were also seen! Yes, not to forget Producer Gauri Khan is also seen, she looks marvelous. You can see the entire cast and crew grooving in the end – Happy to see that Farah and others have even taken them into consideration to show them onscreen!
