If you can digest her trademark Bollywood kitsch of song and dance, and obsession for SRK, then this one’s for you
Sneha May Francis, Emirates 24X7
You may have seen movie criminals doing weird things for the big heist - getting into disguise, making big plans complete with intricate maps, getting teams together and so on. But here, our guys do something far more daring.To get to the 300-crore diamon

While Sonu Sood stays consistent and Deepika inevitably dazzles, it is Shah Rukh himself who appears the most out of place, says Raja Sen.One of the reasons certain tennis players grunt distinctly and even iconically on the court, besides sinus and habit,
Raja Sen, REDIFF
Dum? Well die hard Shah Rukh Khan lovers will love the movie as despite of being a multi starrer film, it's still a SRK film and caters mainly to his loyal audience only

After a disastrous ‘Tees Maar Khan’, Farah Khan has definitely got her mojo back with ‘Happy New Year’

A suitably festive, engaging and entertaining ride that's far better than it was expected to be – go in with minimal expectations and you might, just might, be very pleasantly surprised.
Bolly Brit
Though full on laughter, Happy New Year is a film that fails to evoke any other emotion despite the filmmaker's attempt to do so. A decent festive watch at best

You cannot miss Shah Rukh Khan's film Happy New Year's obvious resemblance to Hollywood's Ocean's 11 series. But it's Farah Khan's baby, and therefore it has the mandatory 'formula' and all those old Bollywood references.
At the box office, the film will have heavy openings and it could get into a profit zone.Bharatstudent verdict: Decent and enjoyable celebration!

Six losers in an international dance championship, with an ulterior motive. An elaborate diamond robbery. Review: It's 'Happy New Year' time. So, Happy Diwali!
Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India
Heroes, in case we forget, can do no wrong; Even when they are caught doing wrong. For all its sins of excesses HNY is a full-on paisa-vasool experience. It is a rollicking rumbustious ode to the spirit of whopping howling shrieking and bantering camaraderie. Filled with tongue-in-cheek episodes of hip-swaying audacity, the all-pervasive madness is infectious. (IANS)
