Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi
Catering to the plot of mistaken identities, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is a sequel to the prequel Happy Bhag Jayegi, but in here, there comes a new entrant into the scenario, another Happy! Mistakenly boarding the wrong vehicles gets the two to suffer through the entire conundrum, with one being abducted by a Chinese gang, who otherwise intended to kidnap the first one, while the second one is driven down to a lecture as a supposed Professor which originally was supposed to be given by the first Happy! Confusing, ainâ€™t it?
The entire drama builds on the premise of this confusion with the giggles primarily arising through these perplexed characters and the peculiar dialogues, that time and again point to Indians versus Pakistanis and Baggaâ€™s (Jimmy Sheirgill) broken English. The writing isnâ€™t as great as what I could see in the prequel. It seemed rather stale and unoriginal with evident efforts to make it comic yet failing at times.
The ensemble cast of Sonakshi Sinha, Diana Penty, Jimmy Sheirgill, Jassi Gill, Piyush Mishra, Ali Fazal, Aparshakti Khurana looks appealing and worth the attention the flick has gotten so far, with credits given to each for their magnificent acting in the respective characters. This flick gets the stand-up comedian Jeeveshu Ahluwalia on screen who had gotten us laughing for all the little moments he was in there.
Diana Penty and Ali Fazal had fewer appearances on screen. There are barely glimpses and barely any scenes until the climax up till when, the raucous of the two Happys ultimately called for Diana Penty to have her share in the film.
The songs, Iâ€™d say, didnâ€™t really get my foot tapping, apart from Chin Chin Chu and the title track, which I can say were rather better of all.
The direction is quite appreciable with Mudassar Aziz who has managed to create an enjoyable movie.
Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is a nice movie for a one-time watch. Itâ€™s a light-hearted film thatâ€™ll keep you entertained and involved for a major portion and doesnâ€™t slack you off boredom.
So, an overall of Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi deserves 3 out of 5 stars.
