Happy New Year is a hindi movie starring Shah Ruhk Khan. This movie is a comedy, drama, but more than anything, it is the comedy. The female interest of the movie is played by Deepika Padukone. And when she plays opposite of Shah Ruhk Khan, you can bet that there is some on screen chemistry.
I have a soft spot for Hindi movies, and this one is like no other, it is so bad that it is good. This won awards, and both Shah Ruhk Khan and Deepika Padukone felt really bad accepting the awards because of how bad the movie was.
But when you are Shah Ruhk Khan and over 3 billion people know you as a house hold name, you’re going to win awards for just about anything.
The movie is about a man seeking revenge for his father, and to do so, he must heist diamonds from the man who betrayed his father. But to do so, he must do something completely unimaginable, he must compete in an international dance competition.
The movie stars more than just Shah Ruhk Khan and Deepika Padukone, but I won’t go into details here, just know that the comedy lineup here is great.
As the movie progresses the stars each face their own situations they must overcome. From epilepsy, so not being able to dance, to requiring anger management, and being a drunk. Obviously all fueled by hate, and for revenge.
This cast of characters comes together rather well in a terrible way, this movie shouldn’t work, it shouldn’t of won awards, but yet, somehow it did and I am thankful for it. Sometimes a movie can be so bad, that it is good. And this movie is one of those.
I give this movie a solid 8 out of 10. Without spoilers, its good, if you have time to read my reviews, you have time to throw on this movie, hit the subtitle button, and watch, laugh, cringe, and smile. Its worth it.
