“Happy Phirr Bhaag Jayegi sparkles with intelligent script and brilliant cast” – Subhash K Jha Review

Happy Phirr Bhaag Jayegi

Starring Sonakshi Sinha, Jassi Gill, Jiimy Sheirgil, Denzil Smith, Aparshakti Khurrana

Directed by Mudassar Aziz

A rom-com works—and this one sure does!—only when the writer and the cast have fun doing it. By that reckoning , the writer-director Mudassar Aziz and his delectable cast must have enjoyed themselves as though there is no tomorrow.

As far as sequels go Happy Phirr Bhaag Jayegi (Hpbj) is a long-legged sprinter. It hops skips and gambols through a maze of amusing incidents woven around some of the most wittily constructed yet inoffensive ethnic jokes seen and heard in Hindi cinema, notorious for insulting cultures and nationalities.

Most of the comedy of mistaken identity is set in China , and that in itself unique. The last time a Hindi film took us to that vast country of illimitable possibilities was when Nikhil Advani made that unintentionally hilarious Akshay-Deepika fiasco Chandni Chowk To China.

Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi Music Review

  • Bollyspice
2016’s Happy Bhag Jayegi was a very successful romantic comedy about Harpreet Kaur (played by Diana Penty) who ran away from her wedding with Daman Singh Bagga (Jimmy Shergill) to find herself in Lahore taken in by Bilal Ahmed (Abhay Deol). In 2018 Happy is back, but this time with Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role in Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi. Set in China this time, there’s bound to be plenty of machismo, the girl coming out on top, some great one-liners and a strong Punjabi vibe. Sohail Sen has been asked to pen the score for this album, so it will be interesting to see how musically he brings Punjab to China.

Diana Penty’s ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ manages to defy many Bollywood clichés

Initially, Happy Bhag Jayegi looked like another run-of-the-mill Bollywood movie about a runaway bride. Diana Penty’s second movie had been the talk of town ever since the trailer was out for everyone to see. Garnering a steady base of fans over time Happy Bhag Jayegi has been a film to watch out for.

The film has done justice to people’s expectations and the pre-buzz around the movie. The light hearted run-com is a fun watch and also defies a lot of Bollywood clichés.

The movie is set in an India-Pakistan backdrop, but does not have the overdose of patriotism or high voltage drama and action we generally relate to such films. Instead, Happy Bhag Jayegi explores the humane side of the two countries and highlights how similar both the cultures are. Not only does it show the relations between India – Pakistan in a different light but also gives

Happy Bhag Jayegi faces ban in Pakistan

Happy Bhag Jayegi faces ban in Pakistan
While Bollywood films are often not welcomed with open arms in the neighbouring country of Pakistan, yet another film that faces the wrath is Happy Bhag Jayegi. This cross border story faced a ban in the country despite the fact that it stars popular Pakistani actors Javed Sheikh and Momal Sheikh. From what we hear, the Pakistani censor board raised a few objections over the portrayal of their renowned leader Mohammad Ali Jinnah and also that of Piyush Mishra as a policeman. Aanand L. Rai who expressed disappointment over the decision also added that though the board loved the film initially, later he was informed that the Ministry objected to the content in the film. He also clarified that this decision of a ban has nothing to do with the common man. What further upset the producer was that while the board did not ask them for any cuts they

“Happy Bhaag Jayegi Makes You Happy”- Subhash K Jha

Happy Bhaag Jayegi

Starring Abhay Deol, Diana Penty, Momal Sheikh, Ali Faizal, Jimmy Sheirgil

Written & Directed by Mudassar Aziz

“Woh jo chahti hai karti hai,” Abhay Deol playing a suave Pakistani politician’s dissatisfied son trapped in a life he doesn’t relish, says at some point about the protagonist.

Abhay has a complex role in a narrative that floats freely gently and elegantly on the surface level. We know all along the complications in the plot—including the heroine landing up accidently in Lahore from Amritsar—are going to iron themselves out magically. Yes, this is that kind of a film where laughter can wipe out 69 years of bitterness between hostile neighbours. At least for a couple of hours.

Yes, this is the kind of Utopian cinema where the entire city of Lahore, including benevolent autorickshaw drivers and a compassionate though cranky cop (Piyush Mishra, brilliant), gets together to
