Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, the second installment of a rather successful film, Happy Bhag Jayegi, did not disappoint. I found the first movie fairly funny, but the second one is way better. Starring Sonakshi Sinha, Jimmy Shergill, Jassi Gill, Ali Fazal and the original Happy, Diana Penty, it is a no-brainer. It has a series of random punchlines and no concrete storyline, but somehow it works in their favour.
Based on a similar plotline as the first, the movie follows the confusion of the gang as they try to find the original Happy and save the second one aka Sonakshi Sinha. Overall, a good way to laugh your way through the weekend, it also has a very cute Chang who plays the kidnapper. If you haven't watched the trailer yet, have a look at it here.
Here are a few thoughts I had while watching Happy Phir Bhag Jayegi. Read at your own risk, there are spoilers ahead!
1. Is this a female version of Chandni Chowk to China?
2. Look there’s the old Happy! I didn’t know she was in this film.
3. I already like the new Happy more. Sonakshi's comic timing is winning.
4. Who found this efficient Chinese man (Chang). He speaks such fluent Hindi.
5. Kaafi jhand plan hai, Sonakshi is right, Chang. This is the first time a hostage is telling her kidnapper how inefficient he is.
6. This is terrible execution guys. No wonder you picked up the wrong Happy.
7. They’re wasting Ali Fazal with this terrible accent though. Was he this annoying in the first film?
8. Happy phir bhag gayi?
9. This looks like fun, I'm sure the cast lost a lot of weight with all this running.
10. Behen de lollipop... LOL.
11. Jassi Gill cleans up well, not bad at all.
12. Ooooo. He has a secret girlfriend. Kahaani main twist.
13. A Pakistani Chinese villain. What an interesting combination, this movie isn't holding back on diversity.
14. Jimmy Shergill trying to use chopsticks is hilarious.
15. Finally. Took you long enough to realize you picked the wrong Happy!
16. If we think all Chinese people look the same. Do all Indians look the same to them? Million dollar question.
17. This guy’s name is Fa and his surname is Q. Get it?
18. Happy phir bhag gayi! Does this girl have no chill? Was she born with running shoes on?
19. Chinese eve teasers. Bravo. Men are the same everywhere. Thanks, Bollywood.
20. So she was supposed to be getting married to this guy Aman, who looks very suspicious.
21. I was right, tsk tsk tsk. It’s your turn to mess him up, Happy.
22. I’m sorry but Jimmy Shergill's style game is on point. He looks like a neon traffic cone, in a good way.
23. Terey Bhai ko phir se pyar ho gaya.
24. Chinese men in straw hats singing Punjabi songs is the cutest thing ever.
25. I’m trying so hard not to give you guys spoilers. But Aman is one hard man to catch.
26. Shit. What a twist. No no no. Please, no intermission right now.
27. I love how the original Happy is just chilling on her honeymoon while the rest of them are running for their lives.
28. This movie is so desi I love it. It's like watching a Punjabi movie in Hindi.
29. The new Happy looks perpetually lost.
30. I’m laughing so hard I spilled my steaming hot coffee. I'm fine, don't worry.
31. Now they’re losing the plot. Buck up guys. 10 minutes of nothing.
32. Is Jimmy Shergill ever going to get the girl? Let’s see. Happy Bhag Jayegi, Tanu Weds Manu, Tanu Weds Manu 2 and now this film.
33. Sonakshi is rocking this transformation, total fitness goals.
34. 2 hours into this movie. I’m starting to find Chang (the gangster) cute now, what is wrong with me. But he looks so distressed.
35. Happy & Happy, please just stop. Why can’t any Happy be normal?
36. This movie is getting pretty complicated.
37. Guddu Justin baibaar hai Amritsar ka. This dialogue cracked me up.
38. I think new Happy and Chang are the perfect couple. I’m shipping this. #couplegoals
39. Guddu looks like a sasta Honey Singh. I said it first.
40. Yaar, Happy phir bhag gayi. What is up with this chick.
41. China really loves Dangal.
42. Chang marega. This guy sure knows how to mess things up. Worst kidnapper ever!
43. The language barrier just makes this movie funnier.
44. Shit. No wonder I liked Chang. He has a huge secret!
45. Jimmy finally gets the girl! FINALLY!
