One thing that I admire most after watching Farah and Sajid Khan‘s movies now is the time when we used to have David Dhawan and Govinda’s duo. Somehow they look more sensible and intelligent filmmakers than this younger lot. Thanks Farah, if it was not for you I could have never understood the talent of David Dhawan.
‘Happy New Year‘ is the recent blockbuster Bollywood movie which is a joint venture of Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.
It stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Jackie Shroff. Phew!!! List of all A star celebrities wasted in this pakao movie.
Interesting thing about this movie is that it’s not a crap movie. It should have been, but it’s not totally crap and some of this credit goes to Abhishek Bachchan for his comic timing and ease of character playing. His role is not etched out perfectly but still he manages to bring out few laughs out of you, specially in his somewhat full monty scene. 😛
Other than him, everyone is damn disappointed by this predictable melodrama movie. What surprised me more is that story is based on a dance comepetion and movie is directed by a dance director, still you will not witness single dance sequence which you can remember after watching this movie. What Farah?? 😦
One more thing, if you are looking for a story, first go and watch previous movies of SRK and Farah and also some random 100 Bollywood movies, and you will have all the dialogues and infact whole screenplay of this film. 😛 This is the originality of Farah Khan.
I do not want to bore you by writing the obvious, instead I would like to share a funny and bang on review of ‘Happy New Year’ with you, that is written by Sahil Rizwan. Read Here.
