Finally, Farah Khan’s much awaited film has hit the theatres today. And here is what we have to say about it

Shah Rukh Khan created a lot of buzz for Happy New Year. The film has finally released today. Did it impress or depress? We tell you…

What’s it about: Charlie (Shah Rukh Khan) is looking to avenge the humiliation of his father who was put in a wrong spot by Grover (Jackie Shroff). Following him and tracking him for 8 years leads to the day when Grover has to protect a handful of rare diamonds. Charlie builds a team of people whom he calls Charlie’s Angels to participate in World Dance Championship which will lead them to the diamonds they want to steal. Nandu Bhide (Abhishek Bachchan), Jags (Sonu Sood), Tammy (Boman Irani) and Rohan (Vivaan Shah) along with their dance teacher Mohini (Deepika Padukone) train for the championship. How a bunch of losers manage to sneak out the priceless diamonds from the world’s safest locker is what the film is all about.

What’s hot: While many would say it’s the performances, I would beg to differ and say it’s the camera work that is completely brilliant in the movie. A big kudos to the Director of Photography Manush Nandan and his entire camera team for that mind blowing cinematography. And now the performances. SRK’s screen presence comes as a great relief, he carries the film on his shoulders with ease. Deepika does more than just being a pretty face and looking ‘lovely’. Though her screen time isn’t a lot, the actress has done a terrific job and proves that she can fit in any role. Abhishek is certainly the dark horse in this film. …read more
