Plot

Chandramohan Manohar Sharma, better known as Charlie (Shah Rukh Khan), is a street fighter whose has been yearning for revenge from Charan Grover (Jackie Shroff) for 8 years. Because of him, his father, Manohar Sharma (Anupam Kher) was labeled as a thief because Charan had conned him into stealing the Shalimar Diamonds. Charlie finds out in the media that the diamonds will reach the Atlantis Palm hotel on Christmas Eve. He wants to steal the same diamonds and frame Grover. To accomplish this, he must assemble a dynamic team.

First in his team is Jagmohun Prakash, or Jag (Sonu Sood) who has a hearing deficiency and gets furious when anyone abuses his mother. Second on his team is Tehntroman Irani, or Tammy, (Boman Irani) who is an overweight jogger and suffers from epileptic fits. It is also revealed that Tammy and Manohar (Dad) were best friends. Third on the team is Rohan Singh (Vivaan Shah), a young hacker who will be able to hack through Shalimar's computerized system. He is also Jag's nephew. After thoroughly researching about the vault, the team finds the main vault comprises a biometric lock (fingerprint lock). The problem is that only one person can access the vault at any time: Vicky Grover, Charan's son. So they enlist the aid of a lookalike, Nandu Bhide (Abhishek Bachchan).

The team heads to a warehouse which was originally their workshop for a rehearsal. It is revealed that Tammy was immensely in love with the Shalimar vault and he only knew the sole combination to the vault. The real Shalimar vault has a laser shield in front of the vault whose code combination is changed everyday. The team finds out a weakness that the Shalimar safe is in the Altantis hotel underground which is connected through a sewer system which is further connected to room 9C. But the room is only open the winners of the World Dance Championship (WDC), a dancing competition. Unfortunately, none of them can dance.

The real story is eventually revealed: Manohar was an engineer in vaults. He met Charan Grover, who was a dealer in African diamonds who gave him a contract to build an impenetrable vault. After the vault was completed. Charan drugged Manohar and conned him into stealing the diamonds by using his fingerprint. Desperate to win the competition, they employ the help of Mohini Joshi (Deepika Padukone), who is a Maharati bar dancer who trains them to dance. They manage to qualify in the first round and eventually win the competition to represent Team India in the WDC. However, at the WDC party, everyone despises them, especially Grover as he considers India as a team of losers. During the first round, they are pitted against Team Korea, however their performance is halted when Charlie saves a falling child of the rival team. The team eventually find out that the diamonds will arrive on New Year's Eve instead of Christmas which impedes the heist. Though Team Korea secure the last position in the semifinals, the judges however decide that Team Diamonds as part of the semi-finals as well. During this time, Charlie and Mohini fall in love.

Mohini ends up hearing the whole story as to why they wanted revenge. Charlie reveals a shocking secret that Manohar is not in jail but is actually dead, as he committed suicide. This shatters the entire team but manages to motivate them even more get revenge. Mohini reluctantly joins the team and helps them for the heist. The heist eventually takes center stage. Nandu and Jag sedates Vickie temporarily and Nandu takes his place. For the thumb print, Jag paints his thumb, removes it and places on Vickie's thumb matching the print. While Tammy cracks the vault combination, he suffers an epileptic fit, however they open in time. Everything seems to go very well until Charlie and Tammy find another safe inside made of glass which houses the diamonds. Tammy realizes that Manohar built this safe but Charlie manages to crack the password (which is "Charlie"). After stealing the diamonds, the team boards a nearby boat, but Mohini doesn't want to come as she feels her country is in disdain. One by one everyone heads back, besides Charlie.

During their performance, Charlie makes his unannounced appearance and eventually win the competition. Grover immediately pinpoints Team India as the thieves, but much to his disdain he sees them performing. As part of the plan he and Vickie gets arrested. Team India reach the airport and manages to bypass security (Charlie camouflaged the diamonds as ice cubes in his cool drink), but the security guard disposes it. The team eventually find out that the actual real diamonds are engraved on the trophy itself.

The film ends with Mohini opening a dance school. Charlie propses to her by giving a ring made of one of the diamonds. Charlie quotes that there are "winners" and "losers" in this world and from losers they won the hearts of millions and became winners.

Reception

The soundtrack gained mostly positive reviews from music critics.

Kasmin Fernandes at The Times of India felt that As a heist film centred round a dance competition, Happy New Year provides plenty of fodder for composers Vishal and Shekhar and lyricist Irshad Kamil to showcase their way with sounds. And they've delivered, with seven original tracks, one electronic version, a variation, a medley and an instrumental number.[34] Rohit Vats for Hindustan Times gave the album 3 out of 5 stars stated, "Farah Khan looks more concerned about the feel of her film than the quality of the songs, and it prompts her to go with trendy tunes. Overall, the album is average and is only youth oriented. Acquiring longevity will be difficult for this album."[35] For India.com, Prathamesh Jadhav wrote, "It's a mixed bag!"[36] On the contrary critic Surabhi Redkar for Koimoi felt, "Happy New Year album is not as extravagant as the film looks. With an expectation of a Bollywood musical soundtrack, it comes down to a regular album of Vishal-Shekhar. Even though the album will be a hit with tracks such as Manwa Laage and Kamlee, it will not enjoy much longevity."[37]

Critical reception

Domestic

The film generally received a mixed to negative response from Indian critics.

What's that, ask Farah Khan in Happy New Year".[75]

International

Shilpa Jamkhandikar of Reuters said that the film has liberally borrowed from Hollywood heist films, in particular from Steven Soderbergh's Ocean’s Eleven. "The first half is lighter and genuinely funny at times, but as the second half wears on, the proceedings become monotonous".[76] Lisa Tsering of The Hollywood Reporter reviewed film as, "an ambitious musical, a love story and an Ocean's 11-style crime caper".[77] Sami Qahar of the Dawn gave the film 2.5 out 5 stars and said the film is "Ocean’s Eleven plus Italian Job plus Step Up all in one…on cheap shape-deteriorating steroids."[78]

Sequel

Actors Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan hinted there might be a possible sequel of this film.[79][80]

Controversies

Bollywood film choreographer Saroj Khan reportedly got upset after being spoofed in movie.[81] Farah Khan denied having spoofed Saroj Khan. Farah had earlier allegedly spoofed Manoj Kumar in her 2007 film Om Shanti Om.[82][83]
