Review Happy Bhag Jayegi: 2nd half ruins the movie!!! *½

1495th BLOG POST -->>


While watching Mohenjo Daro and Rustom in cinema hall, the trailer of Happy Bhag Jayegi was played several times that it made me watch the movie eventually. I had high expectations because of the trailer, the actors and the name of Aanand L Rai associated with the film. The films begins wonderfully showing Jimmy Shergill dancing on the stage as a tribute to his idol, Sunny Deol, while his soon-to-be-bride, Happy (played by Diana Penty), runs away for her boyfriend played by Ali Fazal. The situation becomes tricky when both the boys come to know that Happy is with none of them and they do not know where actually she has fled away. Happy, by the time, lands up in Pakistan at Abhay Deol's home who is son of an influential minister. 

And the film begins exactly from here. It is funny at many places but the problem lies in the screenplay. Because of too many sub-plots, film is unable to portray itself as wonderfully as it could have. The banters shown between both the countries is funny and does not insult our neighbors constantly like it's been done in many other patriotic movies. The whole premise is nicely set in first half but too much of running here and there in second half kills the soul of the movie. Just because the title of the movie has the word "Bhag", it does not mean that justifying it should become the sole purpose of the writers and the makers.

The dialogues are funny at times which keeps the interest in the movie alive. The songs are just okay but forgettable. Talking about the performances, Jimmy Shergill is playing what he plays in Tanu Weds Manu series and totally justifies his character. Abhay Deol has also returned back with a bang and gives a great performance just like the movie Ranjhanaa. Diana Penty is only beautiful in the movie and does not suit in this loud punjabi character that she plays. Her dialogue delivery is very bad; the same problem that Deepika Padukone had in her initial phase. Ali Fazal is just for filling the blank spaces in the movie and doesn't lighten up a single scene. Momal Sheikh looks beautiful and you might end up having a crush on her dynamic personality. I give this movie 1.5 star out of 5.
