Director Mudassar Aziz's Bollywood movie "Happy Bhag Jayegi" (HBJ), starring Diana Penty, Abhay Deol, Jimmy Shergill, Ali Fazal and Momal Sheikh, has got positive reviews from the audience.
"Happy Bhag Jayegi" is a romantic comedy based on the story and screenplay by Mudassar Aziz. It is a cross-border drama that explores relationships in a unique and beautiful way. The film is a fun family entertainer with a perfect blend of humorous narrative and interesting characters, say viewers.
Bilal Ahmed (Abhay Deol) is a guy from Lahore who aspires to join the Pakistan cricket team. But his father forces him to become a politician. Happy/Harpreet Kaur (Diana Penty), who hails from Amritsar, is supposed to marry Daman Singh Bagga (Jimmy Shergill). But she loves Guddu / Gurdeep Singh (Ali Fazal). She elopes from her house and jumps into a truck full of baskets. The same truck reaches Bilal's house, carrying the baskets and Happy. What happens next unfolds a comic tale of errors.
After wonderful scripting, Mudassar Aziz's brilliant characterisation forms the highlight of the film. Diana Penty, Abhay Deol, Jimmy Shergill, Ali Fazal and Momal Sheikh have done justice to their respective roles. Their performances are the high points of the movie.
"Happy Bhag Jayegi" has been produced by Anand L Rai and Krishika Lulla under the banners Eros International and Colour Yellow Productions. The movie has decent production values and music and the attractive picturisation is the attraction on the technical front, say the viewers.

#HappyBhagJayegi is a fun film that will pleasantly surprise you. @AbhayDeol @DianaPenty @momalsheikh @alifazal9 have done a good job. Enjoyed @jimmysheirgill's entry & the play on his character in Tanu Weds Manu. @DianaPenty as #HappyBhagJayegi was entertaining & done well. Loved how Bilal (@AbhayDeol) reacts to his father (#JavedSheikh)'s expectations. Many funny moments there. .@momalsheikh who plays @AbhayDeol's fiance was likeable & the portrayal was very natural. My favourite parts of #HappyBhagJayegi are of #PiyushMishra speaking Urdu. The audience was laughing & the jokes & dialogues were brilliant. #HappyBhagJayegi will be a great family film if audiences give it a chance. The jokes are natural & characters realistic. Rating it 4.5/5. #HappyBhagJayegi is one film I'd especially recommend my Pakistani friends to watch.I'm sure they'll be quite amused by the Urdu-Hindi bits.
