More than just a sip of fizzy fun, this 3-hour comedy is Jeroboam-sized.

Bollywood's big Diwali release is an unashamedly overblown, three-hour masala movie which largely succeeds in its unambitious aim of providing mindless entertainment.

If "Happy New Year" inspires anyone to check out "Main Hoon Na" or "Om Shanti Om," it will count as a success on that ground alone.

If you've ever harbored a desire to see Bollywood's reigning king rehearsing in a tutu, "Happy New Year" is cause for celebration.

October 26, 2014 | Full Review…

Happy New Year is a brightly colored, obnoxiously loud, brutishly simplistic, yet artfully crafted pile of filmi, overly dramatic conventions and references.

Farah Khan seems to have taken a misstep with Happy New Year.

Audience Reviews for Happy New Year


After TMK's epic failure, Farah Khan reunites with SRK. While the movie fared well at the B.O., the flick is nowhere as great as MHN or OSO. Although none of them had any ground-breaking plots, they'd a commendable mixture of emotions, SONGS, comedy and drama. Unfortunately, HNY falls short on all those levels, and fails to entertain enough. Although SRK feels that he didn't perform well enough in the movie, I doubt whether his better performance would have helped any.
