Comedy of errors is one of the oldest tricks in the filmmaking business. It’s always fun to watch, people caught up in extraordinary circumstances behaving like simpletons. And that’s exactly why Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi (HPBJ) is such a fun film. It works on the same themes and ideas that made its predecessor, Happy Bhag Jayegi (HBJ) such a laugh riot. The writing and direction by Mudassar Aziz are top notch.

Horticulture professor Happy (Sonakshi Sinha) arrives in Shanghai and the other Happy (Diana Penty) along with husband Guddu (Ali Fazal) also lands up in the Chinese city at the same time. Gangsters who’ve come to kidnap Happy and her husband, pick up the wrong Happy, while Guddu and his wife Happy are escorted to a university to deliver a lecture. HPBJ has delightfully random humour, the kind that you can watch over and over again. The two Happys get interchanged as soon as the film begins.

Mudassar Aziz has managed to blend funny Punjabi dialogues in the Chinese setting of the film and the outcome is downright hilarious. HPBJ is just as good as HBJ, if not better. It has good music too and for a change. Jimmy Sheirgill’s character has many quirks and the actor delivers every single dialogue with disarming charm. Sonakshi Sinha as the feisty and spirited Happy, is very good too.  The goofball humour gets a little over-the-top at times, but that’s exactly what works for this madcap comedy. Watch it soon guys!
