Express LOL: Just for fun movie review of SRK, Deepika’s Happy New Year

Happy New Year is a film that you will either love to hate or love to love. If you're an SRK fan, HNY will be like SRK-ception. If you're not, you will try to save humanity by telling people not to watch the film.

Happy New Year is a film that you will either love to hate or love to love. If you’re an SRK fan, HNY will be like SRK-ception: SRK jokes inside SRK tropes inside a toned SRK body. If you’re not, you will try to save humanity by telling people not to watch the film.

Our reporter attended the red carpet premiere as usual, and met his fair share of celebs. First up was Deepika Padukone, fresh from yet another box office hit:

Our next guest was definitely not conventional – a bowl of good old fashioned khichdi.

After speaking to a bowl of food, our reporter felt the need to tangle with yet another incomprehensible accent, so he went and spoke to Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Finally, he made his way to the star of Bang Bang, Hrithik’s pectoral muscles (which happened to be attached to Hrithik Roshan).

At this stage, the ultimate challenge for SRK seems to be – to make a movie that does not gross 100 crore at the box office. Watch HNY if you like your popcorn on the big screen.

    Even though the trailer was awful, I still went ahead and saw it on the first day thinking "hey, after all it's Shah Rukh Khan. How disappointing can it be?" Turns out it was worse than I thought! An absolute rubbish movie with ridiculous accents and age old "famous" dialogues of Mr. SRK. In the first 15 minutes I wanted to get up and leave, but thought just like you can't judge a book by it's cover, why should I judge a w movie based on the beginning of it? After all, I've seen many Hindi movies which start badly. But within a few minutes get interesting. Like I said before, it was horrible. A thoroughly disappointing flick. Abhishek Bachchan is the only one who came remotely close to being funny. Other than him there's no one I can praise, least of all the story writer. Made on a budget of 150 crores, the movie keeps on showing sponsors as the bs keep on displaying. A 3 hour movie, that too a bad one, seemed like I was watching it forever! I had a headache when I left the theatre (Not exaggerating).
