Fun filled film
21 August 2016 | by ravi-unadkatSee all my reviews

This is an Anand L Rai's production and he is known for fun filled film with strong emotional connect, here emotional connect is missing but trust me this film has quite a few moments worth watching for. There are so many characters in the film, but Abhay Deol bags the meatier role and as usual excels in his role. His love interest Zoya (don't know her real name) enacts her part so well, she conveys her anger, hope, helplessness beautifully. More than the story of Happy, the Abhay deol (Bilal) and Zoya's love angle shines in the movie.

Other than all these Ali Faizal and Jimmy both known for good to great acting skills shines well. Piyush Sharma gets gem of the lines in this film and provides heavy dose of laughter. Diana Penty gets an easiest role to play here, most of the work is done by male actors here, she comes back to screen after 3-4 years but this role does not back her skills she shown in Cocktail.

There are no songs you will remember after watching this, and in 2nd half the story does not move much but at climax again it brings smiles at your face.

This is better watch then Rustom and Mohenjo Daro together, it's a pure fun watch. Go with no expectation and you shall return smiling.

2 hours worth refreshment, that's it this movie is.
