    Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi Movie Review

    Two years after Mudassar Aziz won our hearts with the sleeper hit Happy Bhag Jayegi starring Diana Penty, Ali Fazal, Jimmy Sheirgill, Piyush Mishra and Abhay Deol, the director is back with a sequel comprising most of the previous cast plus two new characters played by Sonakshi Sinha and Jassi Gill. But will the sequel prove to be as entertaining as its predecessor, considering the fact that Bollywood has mostly fumbled when it comes to sequels? Let’s find out…

    This time, Happy (Diana) and her husband Guddu (Ali Fazal) are in China for the latter’s concert and a case of mistaken identity has led to the kidnapping of another Happy (Sonakshi Sinha). If this was not all, Daman Singh Bagga (Jimmy) and Pakistani cop Usman Afridi (Mishra) too have landed up in China against their will. When Sonakshi’s character manages to escape from her kidnappers and runs into Indian Embassy employee Khushwant Singh Gill (Jassi), it leads to a comedy of errors involving all the characters…

    Though the film boasts of a stellar cast, I must say that the sequel belongs to Jimmy and Piyush Mishra and their banter is the highlight of the film. Both the actors are so endearing as Bagga and Afridi that I want the makers to make a third film in the franchise only for these two whacky characters, who will have you laughing till your sides hurt. Gill, who makes his Bollywood debut with this film, is fresh and earnest while Diana, Ali and Sonakshi are strictly average, though in their defense, Ali and Diana don’t get much screen time. Aparshakti Khurrana, who plays Sonakshi’s runaway fiancé, is a delight to watch.

    happy-3As for the film itself, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is one of those comedies that may not make much sense plot-wise, but will entertain the hell out of you from the first scene itself. The dialogues are super funny, even if there is a liberal dose of Pak-bashing and the characters are crazy and lovable (even the bad guys).

    On the flip side, there is a bit of slapstick comedy that may not appeal to everyone and the plot is somewhat haywire, as mentioned earlier. happy-5 happy-6However, if you enjoyed the prequel, be sure that ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’ will ensure a ‘Happy’ weekend…
