“Happy New Year” has a huge star cast — Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani, Jackie Shroff and Vivaan Shah, and is slated to be one of the biggest releases of this year. The trailer of the much-awaited movie is finally out, and it looks every bit a colorful extravaganza with all the elements of a masala entertainer poured in — comedy, action, romance and drama.
After delivering a major flop with “Tees Maar Khan,” director Farah Khan is back with her favorite and lucky star Shahrukh for this entertainer. “Happy New Year” is a story of six losers, who try to pull off a diamond heist under the pretense of participating in a dance competition, but are faced with a bigger challenge — they also have to triumph over big baddie Jackie.
A lot is expected from this multi-starrer Diwali release, but as Shahrukh says at the end of the trailer, “Yeh toh sirf trailer tha, picture abhi baki hai. (This was just a trailer, the movie is still left.)” We’ll have to wait to find out if the film manages to impress the audience when it hits the screens Oct. 23. Meanwhile, catch the trailer.
