Happy Ending - Movie Reviews

But, the star of the show is undoubtedly Govinda. There’s a reason why he’s called the king of comedy
Emirates 24X7
Isn't half as clever as it needed to be
Hindustan Times
Here's the thing. Everyone loves a good spoof, and our industry's unchanging ways could use a good-natured spanking in the form of a biting satire
Sify
It is never a particularly good idea to marry a Happy Ending to a rash of loose ends, but the result that the director duo of Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK extract from this quirky and risky exercise is none-too-unhappy.
Unfunny romedies are an instant turn off
Filmfare
So, not so happy ending for a film that must have looked great on paper
A predictable romantic comedy disguised as a cheeky comment on the predictable nature of romantic comedies. Get it?Set for no particula
Rajeev Masand
I strongly recommend you watch it, because it’s dollops of happy whoopee.
Koi Moi
Sassy Start, Glassy Ending…
Movie Zadda
Our filmmakers have for sometime now given up on an engaging storyline, investing instead on stars to bail them out. However, this strategy no longer seems to be working. Shoddy writing makes even the most well-cast film insufferable
Yahoo India
Average fare, but an extra half-star for inventive dialogues; for reminding us that his timing is intact, if only just.
Mumbai Mirror
Yawns: Certainly
Chirtamala
Happy Ending is not a bad movie, it just could have been better. It is a decent watch that'll offer you some laughs here and there, with some popcorn and coke, Happy Ending makes for a watchable movie
Filmi Beat
Happy Ending, the unique and refreshing satirical romcom, is definitely a good watch this week.
Sulekha
Director duo Raj and DK have now come up with Happy Ending, which is a coming-of-age take on bollywood romantic comedies. Starring Saif Ali Khan, Ileana D’Cruz, Kalki Koechlin and above all Govinda, the film has released today. Lets read on to know more a
Bollywood 3
A film that starts off as a spoof on romantic comedies ends up living up to every single cliché in the genre
Reuters India
It’s bold in lyrics and carries a sentiment that Happy Ending could be a different film than usual ‘masala’ Bollywood potboilers, but does Happy Ending really turn out to be a ‘hatke’ film
Hindustan Times
फिल्म में ऐसा एक सीन है जिसमें आंचल (इलियाना डिक्रूज) कुछ लोगों को अपनी किताबें पढ़ाकर बोर कर देती हैं। इसमें दर्शकों को ऊंघते, सोते और मोबाइल गेम खेलते दिखाया गया है। कुछ ऐसा ही नजारा इस फिल्म को लेकर सिनेमा हॉल के अंदर भी देखने को मिला। कहानी:...
Bhaskar
It is a decent movie with adequate entertainment quotient and is good for a single watch.
Bollywood Mantra
Makers of India’s first ever zombie-comedy comes Happy Ending
The Hindu
Like that massage that fires you up but doesn’t deliver on the "happy ending" it promised, the film is neither here nor there, and leaves you begging for more because of its half baked script that tries to be smart and clever, but fails on both counts
Bolly Brit
Happy Ending (UA) is the story of a struggling writer in Los Angeles, who wears his heart on his sleeve
Komals Reviews
When I saw the trailer of Happy Ending, my reaction was, “Ah, boy meets girl, the two fall in love. Same old, same old.”
Bollywood Life
K. and Raj Nidimoru makes Bollywood again breathe fresh by spoofing on b-town rom com genre pumping new life into this genre with subtle humor and a smart imp
India Glitz
Govinda as a commercially prone actor is brilliant.
India TV News
Not as happy as it should be
Bharat Student
Another reason to watch the film is Govinda, Ranveer and Kalki. All in all, it is an average film with not so happy ending
India Today
Happy Ending, at its core, is pretentious and does not quite live up to expectations, save for Govinda, who lights up the screen with his mere presence and those legendary moves
REDIFF
Despite all its references to screenwriting, Happy Ending feels like a first draft.
Access Bollywood
Happy Ending can hold your attention throughout its length except some not-so-necessary intimate scenes. There is enough in the story to provide you a good dose of entertainment, you just don’t need to expect too much.
Bollywood.Com
Happy Ending takes a dig at stereotypical Bollywood romantic comedies, yet keeps the ending realistic. Ileana and Saif’s chemistry is delightful and brilliant. The movie is filled with endearing scenes. Also, watch out for Kareena Kapoor and Preity Zinta in cameo roles! If you wish to walk out of the cinema with a smile on your face, Happy Ending should be on your ‘to-watch list’ for the weekend.
BookMyShow
The film is a funny take on modern day relationships. 'Happy Ending' is a light-hearted comedy about rom-coms. Despite being a bona fide romantic comedy, the film goes beyond it.
Jagran
Yudi (Saif Ali Khan) is the author of a very successful book that released six years back (sorry, five and a half years, as he points out)
Planet Bollywood
But surely by the end of the film you’d utter to yourself, “Yeh Hatke kya hai?”. Thumbs Up: Light treatment to an old-school idea Thumbs Down: Clichéd plot, nothing new to see Yawns: Certainly
Chirtamala
Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K.are known to play with genres and their light touches work with actors who don’t come with the baggage of stardom. 99 and Shor in the City are examples of what they can do with slice of life cinema
The Hindu
As Armaan Ji says, "300 rupaiye mein logon ko zindagi mat sikha!" Now, if that's not a master class on making big money in Bollywood, I don't know what is. If only Raj-DK had kept it as short,simple and precise, this would be recommended as a two-time wat
DNA India
Wrapping Hollywood ribbons on a Bollywood heart, this is a nice ending - and a good start.
Times of India
Happy Ending is barely 'hatke'
India Today
While Saif brings a variation to his stereotypical role, Ranveer Shorey as his best friend does the same with his habitual flair for flirting with the familiar
On the whole, HAPPY ENDING is a film which leaves you with a happy feeling...
Bollywood Hungama
In it's current state, go see it if you've seen all the hollywood offerings because it is meant purely for us multiplexers
India Today
Overall, Happy Ending has nothing new to offer except a few funny scenes, dialogues, songs and exotic locations.
Talking Moviez
Yet its not all bad.Yes we see Saif Ali Khan for the umpteenth time as a playboy charm
Bolly Spice
Happy Ending is a mashup of Saif AIi Khan's popular films.
Daily Bhaskar
A lovingly welcome breeze of tease on Btown romcom (romedy as we all say). Illuminati Films and Eros International’s comedy about romantic comedies oozes with confidence, smartness, wittiness and knock out performances.
India Glitz
Flawed but feisty and relevant
SIFY
Great Andhra
Happy Ending is recommended for anyone who is even slightly interested in romantic comedies
Now Running
Happy Ending is a decent one-time watch
India Today
HAPPY ENDING goes a notch further
