Critic Reviews Happy Bhag Jayegi

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-6/10
Happy Bhag Jayegi is mostly fun despite its shortcomings, because the humor is earned. The jokes are mined from the characters and the scenarios they find themselves in; they’re never merely slapped onto the narrative like in so many films. It’s far from perfect, but it’s unlikely you’ll be bored.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5/10
Happy Bhag Jayegi falls short of being a side-splitting laugh riot because writer-director Mudassar Aziz does not make happy use of the narrative pieces available to him consistently enough to be able to deliver an outright winner. But Happy Bhag Jayegi delivers harmless fun for the most part in spite of the patchy screenplay.

  • Times of India | Review By -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-7/10
Happy Bhag Jayegi is a fresh, light-hearted take on cross-border camaraderie that revolves around a runaway bride. It lures you into throwing logic out of the window ('baher') for a while as it offers clean entertainment with ample gags. The cat and mouse game between the characters, with a dash of romance, forms the story.

  • Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-4/10
Such a pity, especially when the actors flanking Happy are so talented and endearing to watch. If Happy Bhag Jayegi succeeds in delivering a few laughs, it's entirely to their credit. Piyush Mishra's distinct dialogue delivery, this time in chaste Urdu, provides some comic wordplay wherein mousiqui becomes mausi-ki. Happy Bhag Jayegi is silly but this is the most humour you can expect.

Happy Bhag Jayegi even with a predictable plot, manages to keep you entertained with its funny dialogues. Happy Bhag Jayegi is watchable. The film’s comic elements and act keep you entertained. This could easily be a ‘Happy’ family watch.

  • Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-5/10
Fortunately, the love angles were wrapped up in a sensible manner. There was no drama and that was a relief. This is no laugh riot, but Happy Bhaag Jayegi has its glorious moments. Reserve this for a one-time watch.

  • Bollywood Life | Review By -Sreeju Sudhakaran Rating-6/10
Happy Bhag Jayegi is a surprise for sure as the film is filled with several light moments, especially in the first half. Happy Bhag Jayegi suffers from an average writing in the second half. However, thanks to several light moments and fantastic performances, it turns out to be a decent watch that has the potential to surprise you.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-6/10
Happy Bhag Jayegi is a light-hearted comedy where actors don’t go overboard. They take liberties to be funny, but understand the gravity of the situation. Overall, director Mudassar Aziz’s film Happy Bhag Jayegi is a good watch. The supply of situational comedy won’t end till you leave the theatre.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Rohit Bhatnagar Rating-7/10
'Happy Bhag Jayegi' is by far the best film by director Mudassar Aziz. The film is a brave attempt from his quill. He has handled a complex issue with so much conviction, given considering a cross border run-com theme. Overall, 'Happy Bhag Jayegi' is a perfect weekend outing with your entire family.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH Review Rating-6/10
Despite the fact that the film's screenplay is predictable, it's the treatment that makes the film entertaining. The humour in the film is excellent and works magic in the first half. The second half however slows down due to multiple subplots and romantic angles. On the whole, HAPPY BHAG JAYEGI comes across as a feel good film that will make you happy.

  • The Statesman | Review By -Tamanna Naseer Rating-3/10
With a loud background score, a series of characters etched together and an India-Pakistan angle thrown in, the first half is as bad as the second one. The only difference is that one knows what to expect in the second half after experiencing the dull and boring first part. Overall, Happy Bhag Jayegi is avoidable, undercooked comedy.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-4/10
Done well, Happy Bhag Jayegi could have been a rollicking comedy. But despite its occasional throwaway lines, and nice touches, it never comes together. If you want me to suspend disbelief and buy into your wholly contrived plot, you have to be able to write your way past the contrivances. This doesn’t happen.

  • India Today | Review By -Devarsi Ghosh Rating-6/10
Happy Bhag Jayegi is like one of those lesser Raju Hirani productions like Ferrari Ki Sawaari; there are no evil characters per se and you know all along that things will, somehow, solve themselves and you don't really need to worry. Happy Bhag Jayegi is an inoffensive family entertainer. If you don't like your history with flying crocodiles or with patriotism forced down the throat, this inconspicuous film might appeal to you.
