A Stupid Fun Movie
26 October 2014 | by TheFirstExecutionerSee all my reviews

I was entertained throughout the film. Great acting by SRK, Deepika Padukone, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood, and Vivaan Shah. I never really liked Abhishek Bachan that much but he was good as Nandu in this movie. I loved the comedy in this movie and I was laughing for most of it. Jackie Shroff was decent as the villain. The songs were also great. Farah Khan has made another good film that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

Happy New Year is a stupid movie full of crude humor, but that doesn't mean it's bad. This is a very fun and enjoyable movie. If you are expecting a film as serious as Talaash, don't watch Happy New Year as you may find the humor terrible. There are scenes where the comedy doesn't work and nothing of interest is happening. And when the movie asks you to take it seriously, you just don't because the rest of the movie is full of jokes. But if you like funny family friendly movies, watch Happy New Year because it is solid entertainment.

From A+ to F, Happy New Year gets a B-.
