Happy Bhag Jayegi is a lighthearted comedy with a twisted plot and multiple characters. But all the actors have done justice to their characters. But the movie is not devoid of flaws. Repetition is one o0f the biggest flaw of the movie. There is repetition in dialogues, scenes, and resemblance with another movie Tanu Weds Manu, which is an Anand L Rai production too!
The Thumbs up:
Diana Penty and her lively acting!
Abhay Deol with his subtle presence after a long time.
A different storyline.
The Thumbs down:
Diana Penty is beautiful and extremely charming but fails to be the ‘punjabi pataka’!
An actor of class like Jimmy Shergill is absolutely wasted and is given the repeated role of Tanu Weds Manu!
Some jokes and one-liners are repetitive.
