HAPPY PHIRR BHAG JAYEGI is stupid, yet breezy!

Taking the story forward from its previous installment, HAPPY PHIRR BHAG JAYEGI is a far cry from anything sensible, yet provides consistent light-hearted entertainment, which is a decent enough reason for you to watch it this weekend. Go in with low expectations, and you won’t be disappointed.

Madness across the border is the by-line for the Happy series and this time, the action moves from Pakistan to China. When Professor Harpreet Kaur (Sonakshi Sinha) lands in Shanghai, the last thing she would have on her mind is getting kidnapped. A crazy comedy of errors unrolls as the 'Happy' gang - Bagga, Guddu, Happy and Usmaan Miyaan - navigate through China while Harpreet, aka Happy is caught in the crosshairs.

The basic underlying rule that you have when you go for movies like these is that you don’t have to take things too seriously. All your laws of reasoning and physics will be taken-for-a-ride almost every second minute. So as long as you’re ready to accept this lack of logic as a part of the package, you’ll be able to sustain the content that’s on display. Thankfully, the film is funny (albeit in a puerile way) and never takes itself too seriously. What’s better is that it relies on competent acting, sometimes genuinely funny one-liners for generating laughs and it’s not all slapstick. For me, the very fact that a film of this genre manages to hold your attention for over two hours is an achievement of sorts for it. I personally went in with zero expectations and came out a tad surprised. Not to say that its good, but it’s a decent entertainer that will make sure your weekend isn’t ruined. The music is catchy, and thankfully never interferes with the screenplay momentum. There are bits that harp on a relevant social issue, which appear feigned, but everything is so playful, that it passes by too lightly.

Of the performers, Sonakshi Sinha appears in form and does a decent job. Jimmy Shergill steals the show and the good thing is, that his presence is in abundance this time around. Piyush Mishra also induces some laughs. Jassie Gill, Diana Penty and Ali Fazal are passable.

In all, HAPPY PHIRR BHAG JAYEGI is a blithesome ride, which is unpretentiously stupid. Not recommended, but a watchable option for you to spend two hours over this weekend.
