Happy New Year is two distinct films rolled in one.

The actors are all earnest and the opulent canvas sure works in retaining your attention.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 camarad...(more)

Originality? What's that, ask Farah Khan in Happy New Year.

Charlie (Shah Rukh �8-pack abs� Khan) is secretly putting together a deadly team to avenge the death of his father Manohar (Anupam Kher in an �emotional appearance�: this is how the opening credit introduces him), and the villain of his life is Charan Grover (Jackie Shroff). Nandu Bhide (Abhishek Ba...(more)

The music of the film (Vishal-Shekhar) is indeed one of the film's major highlights. Most of the songs (a couple of them notwithstanding) seem to be apt for the film's situations and helps in moving the story forward. The choreographers (Farah Khan and Geeta Kapoor) do total justice to this extravag...(more)

Happy New Year is drab.

Happy New Year is watchable in parts but its three hours and plus running time makes it woefully difficult. I looked at my watch and about 70 minutes are purely spent in introducing its six main protagonists. On their part, the actors do their best to make up for this scarcity of technical fine...(more)
