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.
