Desperate comedy
Mayank Shekhar, Mid-Day
I’m going with three out of five
Rajeev Masand, 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.

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
Sukanya Verma, REDIFF
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….Runs Nicely Barefoot In The Pak
Khalid Mohamed, Spot Boye
Jimmy Sheirgill may not get the girl but he gets memorable roles and his portrayal of Bagga is the highlight here
Renuka Vyavahare, Times of India
The Film Is Mostly Fun Despite Its Shortcomings

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.

A perfect family entertainer
Rohit Bhatnagar, 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.

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
The Ladies Finger, 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'.
Kunal Guha, Mumbai Mirror
Happy Bhag Jayegi' is clean family entertainer but could have been exemplary!
Radha Mishra, Meri News
Avoidable, undercooked comedy
Tamanna Naseer, 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.

Happy Bhag Jayegi is a good-hearted comedy with all the ingredients well mixed, and the actors are too good.

Mudassar Aziz perfectly mixed all the ingredients required for '€œHappy'€ to be '€œHappy'€
Sajid, 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.

€œHappy Bhag Jayegi'€ is a mildly funny comedy that doesn'€™t try too hard to push the boundaries, but does enough to entertain you
Shilpa Jamkhandikar, 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.

Diana Penty brims with potential; film is funny, but forgettable
Anna MM Vetticad, 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
