Happy Bhag Jayegi released two years ago and left us laughing with its honest approach. Diana Penty, Ali Fazal, Abhay Deol, Jimmy Sheirgill and Piyush Mishra impressed everyone with their impeccable comic timing. The movie did exceptionally well at the box-office because of the audience reaction it received.
The makers of the film are now back with a sequel and it looks like it’s going to be twice as fun and entertaining. Before I tell you what I loved about it, watch it for yourself!
The story shoots-off from the first one and enters a whole other level of crazy as you see another Happy in the mix. Sonakshi Sinha takes center stage in this one and adds her own brand of madness to the plot. The movie retains the original core cast sans Abhay Deol in the trailer ( still hoping for his cameo). But the rest of them seem pretty on point with their characters, Piyush Mishra is still his effortlessly funny self as Usman Afridi and Jimmy Sheirgill aka Bagga falls in love once again with the new Happy (hoping he gets the girl or any girl this time around… It’s high time he does, no?). We get a few glimpses of the original Happy aka Diana and Ali who plays Guddu in the film.
Besides Sonakshi, the makers have added two new actors to the lot and both seem to fit right in with the rest. We only get a glimpse of Aparshakti Khurrana in the trailer but I am hoping he has more screentime because he has a great hand over comedy too. The other addition is Punjabi singer-actor, Jassie Gill who will be essaying the role of Sartaj Singh. Can I just say, I am so disappointed that I wasn’t familiar with this talented and handsome guy!
I enjoyed the trailer and everything but TBH, I am keeping my fingers crossed that too many elements don’t take away the refreshing yet unadulterated entertainment that the first one set the benchmark for.
The film is touted as a ‘runcom’ and nope that’s not a typo. It is aptly called so because, iss baar bhi happy bhagegi zaroor! I am definitely looking forward to this one.
