Meanwhile, Charlie realizes that his plan cannot be executed without a team.In the course of time he explores 6 different people, who together can engineer his master plan. The 6 characters are introduced as ,Jag(Sonu Soods) Charlie’s childhood friend, bomb disposal squad captain,Tammy(Boman Irani) ,safe cracker and Charlie’s father’s childhood friend and Rohan (Vivaan Shah), a hacker and Jags.The team is completed but soon they explore that they cannot continue their plan without the fingerprints of Charan’s son, Vikki(Abhishek Bachchan). In order to match the fingerprints another member Nandu, Vikki’s look like is added to the team.The extended team now starts planning for stealing diamonds.The twist in the story comes when they realize that to further implement their plan they have to participate in the World Dance Championship, and none of them knows dancing, so again the hunt begins, but this time for a dancer who can teach them dancing, after a bid Mohini( Deepika Padukone) is introduced as a bar dancer, and Charlie finds her perfect dancer teacher. After some high and low circumstances the team, surprisingly tends to make its way into the finale of the championship.During the climax, the reason behind the title of the film Happy New Year is disclosed, as the diamond are robbed on the new year itself. The film ends with Charlie and the team winning the championship and Charlie succeeds in their master plan.Like every Shahrukh film it too has happy ending where he proposes Mohini.
Starting with romance king Shahrukh Khan, well they are hardly romantic scenes in the film. Though it’s not his forte, but still the superstar succeeded in tickling the nerve of the audience, He is the “Badshah” of acting with this stint title remain intact with him, moving on our sexy, hot and elegant Deepika Padukone, she does what, in which she is best, she just mesmerizes the audience with her funny English and hot dance moves. Like always Bomen Irani has given his best and has added the flavor of his humor with his funny gigs like mera pyar Shalimar….(his love for Shalimar diamonds).Abhisheck Bachchan ,who has done a double role in the film has pulled his character, especially of Nandu very well, he remains in the skin of his character the one liner Nandu bheede demag mai keedai is best . Sonu Sood fits in the character of the Jag, who has a hearing problem and starts flaunting his muscle, if someone call his Ma pagl and how can we forget his sense of imitating Shahrukh, style from Om Shanti Om .Last not least Vivaan Shah, son of Naseeruddin Shah, suavely assays his character of a hacker, he has a long way to go.
The film has already earned Rs 108 crore at the box office, according the to box office traders the film will break all the records; it has already surpassed the collection of the Kick in the single day. There are chances that it may surpass Amir Khans Dhoom 3 box office collection also. Overall its worth watching, musical heist.
