Happy New Year Review Upodcast

Farah and Shah Rukh Khan come together again after a long hiatus to give us Happy New Year which is shattering records left and right. Part Heist movie, part dance movie are they able to recreate the magic of their previous collaborationsMain Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om?

We are joined by Anisha Jhaveri and Danny Bowes to answer some of the most important questions in the history of Hindi Film Cinema:

Can a 6 pack actually be terrifying?

Is there something like a merry go round bar dancer?

Did Amir actually go “Full Retard” in the PK trailer?

Is it fair to have expectations from a movie like Happy New Year?

And does it deserve to make as much money as it did? Or do movies like Kick, Bang Bang and Dhoom 3 deserve it more?
