A young woman unintentionally crosses borders literally, into Pakistan, as well as metaphorically, in love.
Helmed by Anand L Rai & Krushika Lulla, ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi’ is a situational comedy shot in Amritsar and around the border areas. Story revolves around runaway bride “Happy”, who finds herself across the border where she meets Abhay’s character. The drama then unfolds, leaving the viewers in splits. This cross-border comedy explores relationships in a unique and beautiful way. Mudassar Aziz (Director & Story) has a great command of languages; Urdu, Marathi, Hindi, and writes beautifully. Story of the film has been penned well with good twists and turning points. Abhay Deol has delivered the splendid performance along with Diana Penty. They are the soul of the film. Pakistani actress Momal Sheikh doing Bollywood debut in this film. While the first half is promising, the second half derails a bit with unnecessary cliche complications involving all casts turning up in the same town. Nevertheless, Happy Bhaag Jaayegi is refreshing light hearted film for all.
Performance & Technical Review:
Diana Penty is playing the role of Harpreet “Happy” Kaur in this slapstick Run-Com. She is stubbon, independent and brave. Abhay Deol (Bilal Ahmad) has delivered splendid performance along with co-star Diana Penty. Pakistani actress Momal Sheikh doing Bollywood debut in this film. Jimmy Shergill and other supporting casts have justified roles and they deliver perfectly. The story, screenplay and Dialogue are classy. Music is Soulful. Editing is Sharp & Crispy. Production Designing is Classy.
It is a full paisa wasool entertainment that will surely make all HAPPY. Grab your tickets OR “Happy Bhaag Jaayegi!!”.
