Thumbs up Happy New Year - Movie Review

Aamir Khan did a huge favor to Salman Khan by producing the dumbest flim of Aamir's career - Dhoom 3. Thanks to Dhoom 3, Salman Khan's Kick did all the right things, especially the heist, by NOT doing whatever Aamir did!

The benefits continue and this time the recipient is Shah Rukh Khan and director Farah Khan in the movie Happy New Year

Happy New Year avoids every dumb ass mistake of Dhoom 3 and ensures a complete Bollywood Masala experience minus hit songs with simple to remember catchy lyrics.

And I cannot give all the credit to Aamir Khan as Hollywood has been the 'eternal source of inspiration' to our Bollywood. So movies like Ocean's 11, The Score and many other have contributed to the 'inspiration' of Happy New Year.

So should you see it? Yes, why not! Is it 'Ooh.. what a classic with a poignant socio-<insert your favorite hyphenated cause> message'? Fucking not!!

Farah Khan is back in her element since Om Shanti Om and has done a good job of keeping the 'masses' entertained throughout the 3 hour (yes the running time is 179 minutes and a few seconds) movie.

What is it about?
Well, Shah Rukh's father has been wronged and jailed by an evil businessman, so SRK wants to avenge his father's downfall and jail time. He gathers a few guys just like Ocean's Eleven and then there is Deepika Padukone who is required as per the Bollywood Rules and Regulations to provide the 'item' and 'love' element in the movie.

Abhishekh Bacchan does a good job of portraying a bewda tapori. Bomman Irani does a good job as usual, but he tries too hard to be a 'Bawa' when he can just act natural and be his usual 'bawa' self. The villain from Dabang ... oh yes Sonu Sood, does a Salman all the time - rips off his shirt.

Farah has done her usual thing - made jokes about her own movies, SRK's movies and in general created a Om Shanti Om style of self deprecating humor.

ONLY DEPARTMENT which fails is SONG department. Not a single song is hummable nor memorable. There is not a single 'Aankhon Me Teri Gajab Se Adaye Hai' nor 'Dard-E-Disco' ....

Movie is shot entirely in Dubai as SRK is the official brand ambassador for Dubai. The Atlantis hotel looks grand. Makes you feel like visiting Dubai just to stay in it.

Since there is nothing else to watch in Bollywood right now, give Happy New Year a try. And no you wont be disappointed because SRK plays his age and does not prance around like a 25 year old who is actually 50 plus.

Deepika looks ekdum zhakaas.

Re: Happy New Year - Movie Review

Now, normally i like movies with bad reviews. The review in NDTV about this being a total brainless nonsense made me interested in this, but i can't stand Hakla. So, will wait for it to come on Youtube. I did like OSO a bit, only the parts with long dialog sequences by Hakla put me off.

Re: Happy New Year - Movie Review

But there is no punishment for making bad movies. Movie will still break records in BO collections. It is frustrating to see producers minting money just on the basis of star cast.

They will just keep doing it.

हैप्पी न्यू ईयर (एचएनवाई) के पीड़ितों को ढांढस बंधाने मुंबई पहुंचे प्रधानमंत्री मोदी

Posted by बगुला भगत
मुंबई. प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी ने आज हैप्पी न्यू ईयर (एचएनवाई) प्रभावित सिनेमाघरों का दौरा किया और रोते-बिलखते दर्शकों को ढांढस बंधाया। अंधेरी के एक मल्टीप्लैक्स से बाहर निकलते हुए प्रधानमंत्री ने एलान किया कि एचएनवाई एक राष्ट्रीय आपदा है। केंद्र सरकार इसके पीड़ितों को सौ करोड़ रुपये का मुआवज़ा देगी।


एक परेशानी ख़त्म हुयी नहीं, दूसरी आ जाती है
मल्टीप्लैक्स के बाहर प्रदर्शन कर रहे एचएनवाई के पीड़ितों के परिजनों ने प्रधानमंत्री का घेराव किया और फ़राह ख़ान पर कार्रवाई की मांग की। उन्होंने प्रधानमंत्री से पूछा कि, जब फ़राह ख़ान ख़ुद कह रही है कि यह दुनिया की सबसे बड़ी चोरी है, तो सरकार उससे हमारे पैसे वापस क्यों नहीं दिलवाती?

उधर, हैप्पी न्यू ईयर के पीड़ितों के लिए राहत पैकेज का एलान होते ही हमशकल्स के पीड़ित भी अपने लिए मुआवज़े की मांग करने लगे हैं। हमशकल्स पीड़ित संघ (हपस) के अध्यक्ष विजय दुबे ने कहा कि, लोग फराह की फ़िल्म के सदमे से उबरते हैं तो साजिद की फ़िल्म आ मारती है। इसलिए हम चाहते हैं कि दोनों भाई-बहनों के पीड़ितों को बराबर मुआवज़ा मिलना चाहिए।

कांग्रेस के प्रवक्ता अजय माकन ने भी प्रधानमंत्री पर निशाना साधते हुए कहा कि, मोदी जी से एक फ़राह तो रुकती नहीं और बात करते हैं अल-क़ायदा को रोकने की!

प्रधानमंत्री के दौरे के बाद फ़ेकिंग न्यूज़ ने भी घटनास्थल पर मौजूद प्रत्यक्षदर्शियों से बात की। एक प्रत्यक्षदर्शी ने हमारे संवाददाता को बताया कि, आज सुबह हैप्पी न्यू ईयर शुरु होने के थोड़ी देर बाद ही मल्टीप्लैक्स से धुआं निकलने लगा था। हम सब दौड़कर वहां पहुंचे तो पता चला कि फ़िल्म देख रहे दर्शकों की सुलग रही है और ये धुआं इसी वजह से निकल रहा है।

फ़िल्म देखने के आधे घंटे बाद तक धुआं छोड़ रहे एक दर्शक संजय घोपड़ेकर ने ग़ुस्से में कहा कि, आज गोवर्धन है तो क्या इसका मतलब ये है कि मैं फ़राह ख़ान का गोबर देखूं? इसके बाद घोपड़ेकर ने फ़िल्म के टिकट की बत्ती बनाकर मुंह में डालते हुए एलान किया कि अब मैं नये साल पर भी किसी को हैप्पी न्यू ईयर नहीं बोलूंगा!

Re: Happy New Year - Movie Review

I saw this yesterday. It was an OK movie. There were only 3 people in the entire theater. I guess this is what you can expect on Monday afternoon show.

It really wasnt as bad as some of the reviews said it was. It was OK to watch. Maybe just once, thats it. When you know the kind of movies the director makes, you set the expectations accordingly. Expecting Mani Ratnam kind of movies from Farah Khan is like expecting to read poetry from a prose book.

There was too much male skin all over the place. Waaaay too much. Almost to the point you start to think if it was a soft gay porn.

Good pointing out. i will give this one a miss even when it is on youtube.

Even in the promos on news channels there were Sonu sood and Hakla undressing that Shorty.

Now, why do you equate male skin to gay porn?

Something about the body language didnt seem straight sgars. You better watch it to see what I mean. Not that gay porn's are wrong. They are just weird (sorry, i know its a personal choice but it doesn't appeal to me).

I get what you mean. I dont need to watch the movie for it!

even the long interviews on TV said that. What i am referring to in bold, is Vivan shah dancing to 'Dard e Disco' and every one else removing his blazer, etc. cant find it in youtube right now.
