Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi Reviews
The only character that genuinely flies in this overlong, overstuffed sequel is Jimmy Shergill’s Bagga, who comes out on top as the toughie who never gets the girl – he’s fast cornering the market on that role. Sonakshi Sinha plays Happy as a loud, irritable, one-note protagonist whose eyes seem to light up only when she has to say: “Chup kar varna ek chappet doongi”, which she says about a dozen times in this film. It’s such a dull, uninvolving performance that in response to the film’s title, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, you can only say – Toh bhaagne de yaar! ((pause))
Save for a few laughs, I didn't care much for Happy Bhag Jayegi's clamorous comedy of confusion.
HPBJ is just as good as HBJ, if not better. It has good music too and for a change, the songs actually add value to the storytelling process. This film takes the ideas of the original and it adds a zany new twist to the proceedings. The goofball humour gets a little over-the-top at times, but that’s exactly what works for this madcap comedy.
All said and done, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is one of those films in which you can have fun with your entire family. It has moments which will make you laugh even if you’re watching it for the nth time on television years from now. Whatever is the fate of this film, I want a spin-off film of Bagga & Kaylula.
To be fair, ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’ is not unwatchable, just something you can unregretfully give a miss.
Overall, this film might not have the spark of its predecessor but nevertheless, it is light-hearted enough to bring a smile to you face.
If you found Happy Bhag Jayegi quite entertaining, you are in for a little disappointment with Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi. It, however, successfully makes you laugh, and that’s what should count at the end of the day.
