Critics Review: 3.5 out of 5

Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi Review: Comedy of errors is one of the oldest tricks in the filmmaking business. It’s always fun to watch, people caught up in extraordinary circumstances behaving like simpletons. And that’s exactly why Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi (HPBJ) is such a fun film. It works on the same themes and ideas that made its predecessor, Happy Bhag Jayegi (HBJ) such a laugh riot. The writing and direction by Mudassar Aziz are top notches. HPBJ has delightfully random humor, the kind that you can watch over and over again.

The film wastes no time in establishing the premise. The two Happys get interchanged as soon as the film begins. Sonakshi Sinha’s Happy is kidnapped by a bunch of bumbling gangsters who have hilarious names like Makaju (pronounced like a popular Hindi expletive). Diana Penty’s Happy and her husband Guddu are escorted to a college, where a random Chinese man acting as their translator employs such chaste Hindi that it bamboozles the Punjabi couple. These random bits of humor set the tone for the rest of the film, that plays out in a series of gags and situational humor set pieces, that are genuinely hilarious. Once the characters of Bagga (Jimmy Sheirgill), Usmaan Bhai (Piyush Mishra) and Khushi (Jassie Gill) get introduced, the film’s pace and humor pick up to a whole new level. But an extra word of appreciation for actors Denzil Smith and Jason Tham, who play the Chinese characters. Denzil plays Adnan Chau and Jason is Chan, the leader of the gangsters. Both actors excel in the scenes of outrageous comedy.

Mudassar Aziz (Director) has managed to blend funny Punjabi dialogues in the Chinese setting of the film and the outcome is downright hilarious. The writing of HPBJ is its strength, the gags and scenes have been written with genuine alacrity. The film could have been a tad bit shorter with taut editing, but that doesn’t really affect the prospects too much. The performances by the ensemble cast are pitch perfect, but the one actor who stands out with his comedic timing is Jimmy Sheirgill. His character has many quirks and the actor delivers every single dialogue with disarming charm. Sonakshi Sinha as the feisty and spirited Happy is very good too. Aparshakti Khurrana, in a brief but surprising role, creates a good impact too. 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 humor gets a little over-the-top at times, but that’s exactly what works for this madcap comedy.
