Happy Bhag jayegi was the sleeper hit of 2016, a comedy revolving around an Amritsari who runs away from her wedding to marry the man she loves , but lands up in the home of a stranger- A Pakistani Politician- by mistake.
Diana Penty was luminous as the eponymous leading lady of that film, which despite its insubstantial plot and flagging second half , managed to be funny all the same. she reprise her role in a cameo in Happy Phirr Bhag Jaayegi even as it diverts its gaze to another Punjabi girl called Harpreet also known as Happy , this one played by Sonakshi.
As per the director supposed, The film will be bigger and even better. title Happy Phirr Bhag Jaayegi, the film stars Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role while Diana Penty has taken a back seat a supporting actor. in a conversation with indianexpress.com, Mudassar talks about the film and dearth of family friendly comedy films.
Director Mudassar Aziz appears to have taken the feedback on his previous venture to heart. Happy Part 2 not only remains largely amusing if you can excuse a few waning patch here and there, the writing of its character and the plot also have more substance than Part 1.
Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi unfolds in China, where character from the first are joined by an Indian embassy man from Patiala even as suave non-resident Pakistani gentlemen- that is what he appear to be on face of it- cause them no end of trouble .
About the time movie struck a passably droll note is when Jummy Sheirgill , in a meta textual context, ticks off jassi Gill for peering over his family name.
The main problem with Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is not that it is pure drival , that is something that could be paradoned in Bollywood laugh riot.
but there the hilarity quotient is low, the precursor delivered on at least a part of the promise inherent in the quirku premise.
this one goes through the motions without ever coming close to finding a genuine rhythm.
