'Happy New Year' -'Farah Khan Redefined Bollywood Entertainment' Verdict: ****By Parvez Chowdhary
'Happy New Year' - Movie Review by
-- Parvez Chowdhary
Before writing anything about this film, I would like to confirm a fact that Farah Khan is modern day Manmohan Desai. Multiple stars, rich and colorful presentation, complete masala entertainment is main USP of Manmohan Desai films, no doubt in contemporary days Farah perfectly fits into this. If I am not exaggerating then this is the ultimate definition to Bollywood Entertainment. Forget about logic, forget about sanity who wants if you want to laugh and enjoy three hours then here is final destination for you.
While watching this three hour Bollywood bonanza I was noticing the audience response, young boys, girls, middle aged men and women all were laughing, clapping and dancing hysterically. Well now how can I judge this film, if I write logical faults, technical errors then who will care my film journalistic skills. People spend 150 bucks for a movie to enjoy some time in a multiplex then this flick fully justify it.
I have not remember this level of commercialization of patriotism. Farah completely exploited patriotic feelings in perfect manner. We should also appreciate all lead actors and their amazing screen presence and their astonishing chemistry. Shahurkh magnificent, Abhishek mesmerizing, Deepika breathtaking, Boman exceptional, Soon Sood remarkable, Vivaan phenomenal then what else you want?
If we gt into story, there is not much to discuss, Charlie (Shah Rukh Khan) is son of Anupam Kher who is expert in diamond security world. Charan Grover (Jackie Shroff) asks Anupam to provide perfect security arrangements later deceives him and steals those costly diamonds and gets Anupam into jail. Sonu Sood and Boman Irani were also working with Anupam but this incident will devastate them hugely.
To avenge this betrayal Shahrukh plans to rob diamonds from Jackie he writes a perfect plan and to execute this he chooses 5 different souls who are mastered in different departments. Bomb expert Sonu, Locker breaker Boman, Computer hacker Vivaan, dancer Deepika Padukone and alcoholic Abhishek, luckily look alike of Jackie's son.
Jackie is sponsoring World Dance Completion in Dubai in same hotel he keeps the costliest diamonds. Naturally Charlie along with his team participates in that dance show(Viaan hacks even sms and online voting to get their team selected as India's team). How Charlie executes his plan and steals the diamonds is the rest of the story.
Very weak plot and very much predictable story but what works out well for this film is the non-stop entertainment through out the film. Right from the introduction of the characters to their strange mannerisms, hilarious funny acts and of course abuses at their best. It is mad hilarious comedy. Vishal Sekhar's chartbuster numbers are big assets to the flow of the film. Manush Nandan camera captures every frame of all gigantic colourful rich sets beautifully.
Actors performances are concerned if we mention specially one then it can be injustice to others. All gave very honest and outstanding performances.
If you are looking for non-stop three hour entertainment then sure you will get it. Please keep your brains, logic and wisdom at home. Just take popcorn and enjoy every scene and every dialogue of this film...It is perfect entertainment, entertainment, entertainment.
Verdict : ****
