Happy Bhag Jayegi is a combination of comedy and romance both. The trailer has got a good response from the people which has raised the expectation from the whole movie.
Plot: Happy Bhag Jayegi is a romantic love story from two different borders along with crazy comedy scenes. Diana Penty’s character name is Happy who is an Indian bride, but she runs from her marriage which was fixed with Bagga ( Jimmy Shergill). She wanted to marry Guddu ( Ali Fazal). However, she reaches Pakistan sitting in a truck which lands her in Bilal Ahmed’s ( Abhay Deol) house. Zoya ( Momal Sheikh) is Bilal’s fiancé. She doubts Bilal after seeing Happy in his house, and the story moves on. Happy and Bilal ends up falling in love. What happens to Bagga and Guddu and will Zoya leave Bilal is the rest of the story.
Analysis: The film is directed by Mudassar Aziz and is produced by Krishika Lulla and Anand L. Rai. It is an excellent mixture of romance and comedy. The movie is going to make a huge collection on box office because of its impressive trailer. Diana Penty, Jimmy Shergill, Abhay Deol, Momal Sheikh and Ali Fazal are the star casts of the film. The story and the concept are powerful and are surely going to gain the attention from the audience, despite having no big actor.
The film’s maker is already famous for his previous releases like Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Raanjhanaa. Both the movies got amazing responses from audiences. But the story of this film is completely dissimilar and unique. Many parts are shot in Pakistan. Those scenes are shown well. The story becomes boring in the end as there are some unpleasant scenes which make movie loses its original track. The plot is easily predictable, and it creates confusion in the second half due to the presence of all characters at one place.
Star Performances: Diana Penty has done her debut in Bollywood industry from the movie Cocktail. In this film, her character is totally different from the previous one. She is playing the character of a courageous Punjabi girl Happy. She has given a lot of efforts to fulfill the requirements of this role. Abhay Deol’s character name is Bilal Ahmed who belongs from Lahore and is engaged to Zoya (Momal Shaikh). However, his role appears complex somewhere. But he maintained his comic timings and entertained people with his dialogues and body language.
His transformation of character from serious scenes to funny scenes is remarkable. Jimmy Shergill also did his part very well and proved himself as a superb actor. Ali Fazal did a nice job with his character. Momal Sheikh has done a debut into the Bollywood with this film but was an average into her role. Other supporting actors were good in their roles.
What is there? The overall story is good, and it becomes more interesting when some other girl plays the character of Happy. The work done on songs is appreciable. A brilliant writing made the concept stronger. The film is an amazing surprise to those people who are expecting a lot after watching the trailer. The dialogues are funny, and comedy is very high.
What is not there? The performances of Diana Penty did not meet the expectations of the audience. People expected more from her. She could have felt the character more. The film is divided into many sub-plots which stretched its second half. The plot also seems predictable sometimes. The chemistry between Abhay Deol and Diana Penty was not interesting. The special effects also did not work well.
Verdict: This film is for the people who are interested in watching Tanu Weds Manu Returns in another form. It is a one-time watch and should be watched for the funny and comedy parts. It will surely light up your day with its various elements of romance and comedy.
