Shah Rukh Khan is Charlie, described as a Boston University ka topper, who can’t find a job because his father (Anupam Kher) is imprisoned under false robbery charges. Charlie seeks revenge against the man who ruined his life. The revenge involves the famed Atlantis hotel in Dubai, a monstrously large safe, the world dance championship, too many product placements and diamonds worth '300 crore dollars'. Charlie’s crew consists of five oddballs who are losers. So it’s up to Shah Rukh to keep Happy New Year going. He displays his eight-pack abs, beats up many baddies and still romances with utmost conviction.
