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.
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.
As the second half wears on, the proceedings become monotonous.
Happy New Year is nowhere near as accomplished as Farah Khan's debut Main Hoon Na or Om Shanti Om. It lacks the polish and confidence of these films, but it does prove that she isn't quite finished with her mythologisation of Shah Rukh Khan.
If you like to have fun and you don't mind entertainment over cerebral arguments, Farah Khan's Happy New Year is worth your time.
The film plods at the start, with long intros to each of the characters and big doses of slapstick action complete with the cake routine.
The cast pulls off their acts well; and leave you with some feel-good moments, but not enough to last three long hours.
It is frantic, noisy, gaudy and, largely, joyless.
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.
