• The film does offer some shrieks and shocks if you keep aside rational thinking, and if you’re a horror junkie who’s in it only for the chills, you may walk out sufficiently spooked.

  • The film gives a few thrills and chills that a horror film does, with its eerie background score and more often the impression of an ambush lurking in the crannies. There are however slip-ups that defy logic and continuity of script. So if you’re one that doesn’t care too much for details and are happy teasing your senses with horror tricks and shocks, this leave-your-brains-at-home horror may appeal to you.

  • Much like the original, this one too, will cater to audiences with a certain sensibility. If you’re one for slapstick/ farcical brand of humour, you’re in for a good time. But if you’re one for subtleties and wisecracks, this may offer you only a few chuckles. Whatever, your brand of humour or cinema, nostalgia panders to most palettes and for that reason alone perhaps, you might want to give this film a watch.

  • The film offers a generous dose of laughter, some stunning locations that are a treat to watch and a refreshing comeback of Bollywood’s ‘Hero Number One’, among others. Directors Raj Nidimoru, Krishna DK have managed to provide a fresh perspective to an otherwise drab storyline. So while the film mocks other films that cater to the ‘masses’ (their words, not ours) and aim at giving you three hours of paisa-wasool entertainment, Happy Ending follows the same trail too. Does that make it a paisa-wasool entertainer then? Oh yes!

  • A painstakingly slow narrative fails to engage your senses…

  • …reasserts the power of simple story telling, making it one of the most refreshing and delightful films of recent times.

  • It’s one big déjà vu.

    A few goofy dialogues coming at an unprecedented time from the least expected people may take you through till end – if you hadn’t already given up at the point where the baba pours himself a drink before choking a devotee to death, that is.

  • Seen purely in the context of its genre, Kick is an entertainer worth a couple of hours of your time on the weekend; more so if you seriously take to his dialogue ‘dil main ata hoon, samajh main nahi’. The film is endearing in bits, but rational? We’ll let you decide.
