Happy Bhag Jayegi - Movie Reviews

Desperate comedy
I’m going with three out of five
Rajeev Masand
An India-Pakistan encounter that does not involve terrorists or silly politicians or bad-mouthing 'them'? Never thought it was possible. But writer-director Mudassar Aziz manages that and offers us a funny story on a runaway bride, harried cops, silly cops, ambitious fathers, arranged marriages, and so much more... Mostly predictable, but delightful nonetheless.
‘Amusing Stroll..’
Cine Markets
I wish the rest of the film matched his eccentric, genial comic energy
If Happy Bhag Jayegi succeeds in delivering a few laughs, it's entirely to the credit of the actors
Happy Bhag Jayegi isn't the kind of film that will have audiences rolling in the aisles. But it might occasionally induce faint smiles on some faces.
Diana Penty, Abhay Deol film begins well but soon the laughs are few and far between. A weak script fails this film and its cast.

Happy Bhag Jayegi’s flaws are frustrating
The National
Sadness offered from the run-of-the-mill ROM com does run away but afsoos (Alas) it also takes away the potential source of a ROM com with a different force
Glam Sham
Overall, it is a feel-good, light-hearted comedy which will make one laugh and giggle till the movie ends.
It’s all about loving your neighbour
The Hindu
In Mudassar Aziz’s winning movie, a reluctant bride elopes on her wedding night and lands up in Pakistan.
The music of Happy Bhag Jayegi may not be extraordinary but then it doesn't have any element either that would make you look the other way
Bollywood Hungama
It's a harmless feel good fun that successfully puts a smile on your face when you come out
Glam Sham
The supporting characters shine in this film

Movie Talkies
The humour in this film is understated – no crass jokes, no obscenity, nothing offensive. ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ is not flawless, but this film left me with a big smile.
Cliche screenplay, inconsistent direction, poor music

Happy Bhag Jayegi' will be happily acceptable by the people who love feel-good types of films, despite of its flaws and weakness. The fun elements associated with this movie will keep you engaged and smiling throughout the film.
India Glitz
You won’t run from this rom-com — but you won’t fall deeply in love with it, either
Box Office India
A perfect family entertainer
Deccan Chromicle
On the whole, HAPPY BHAG JAYEGI comes across as a feel good film that will make you happy. At the Box-Office, its prospects will be rewarding for its makers.

Diana Penty’s miserable attempt to reprise Kareena Kapoor’s Jab We Met role of Geet!
Diana Penty and Abhay Deol's film is an inoffensive entertainer
India Today
Its intended humour just fails
Deccan Chromicle
It'€™s particularly annoying that most films that create these colourful, crazy women neatly slip them back into boring old roles by making men their saviours
First Post
li Fazal gets a great platform to establish himself as an actor here and is promising. From the supporting cast, Piyush Mishra, essaying a sceptical cop is a fun addition and the Hindi interpretations of his Urdu words are hilarious — 'mausiqi' is taken to be an expletive involving a 'mausi'.
Mumbai Mirror
Happy Bhag Jayegi' is clean family entertainer but could have been exemplary!
Meri News
Avoidable, undercooked comedy
The Statesman
Overall, “Happy Bhag Jayegi” is a feel-good, light-hearted drama that does not need to be taken seriously.
The whole idea of the film seems far-fetched initially, but the build-up to the climax washes all our doubts away.
Hindustan Times
Happy Bhag Jayegi is a good-hearted comedy with all the ingredients well mixed, and the actors are too good.
Fab Newz
It's a hugely satisfying album and has whipped up our appetite
An appealingly silly comedy in which plot ceases to matter

Mudassar Aziz perfectly mixed all the ingredients required for '€œHappy'€ to be '€œHappy'€
Cinema Glitz
‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’, just like its female lead, is likeable without being memorable, mainly due to a weak third act and under-confident direction. Yet, it delivers enough laughs to justify a viewing.

The Plot Might Seem Far-Fetched But That Doesn't Matter Because The Film Keeps You Too Busy Laughing

This is a truly funny India-Pakistan comedy without calling 'them' bad and proving that 'we' are good and upright

The real highlight of the soundtrack have been the vocalists though, some fabulous singing here

€œHappy Bhag Jayegi'€ is a mildly funny comedy that doesn'€™t try too hard to push the boundaries, but does enough to entertain you
Reuters India
Predictability runs all through the plot. The second half typically gets all the lead characters in one place and thus begins the chaos. It could have been more tightly written since, multiple sub-plots kill all the fun.

All-in-all, the film is a genuine attempt at a family entertainer and would surely make you smile throughout.
Diana Penty brims with potential; film is funny, but forgettable
First Post
Happy Bhag Jayegi is a good fictional attempt at highlighting the brighter side of India-Pakistan relations under waggish circumstances. Contradicting to its genre (Comedy), the film falls flat on audiences.

The audio of Happy Bhag Jayegi is a mix bag with two numbers that hold attention
