"Happy Ending", which is supposedly a spoof on rom-coms, has received positive reviews mostly for its star cast's performances, especially Govinda and Kalki Koechlin.
The romantic comedy features Saif Ali Khan, Ileana D'Cruz, Govinda and Kalki in important roles. It is directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. and produced by Saif's production house Illuminati Films.
The storyline is interesting and even though it's a romantic comedy it hooks moviegoers with twists and turns, according to critics.
Check out the complete reviews below:
Prarthna Sarkar of IBTimes India said: "'Happy Ending' is what happens when you run out of scripts.
"The witty one-liners by Govinda, Saif's inimitable charm and "G Phaad Ke" are the high-points of the film. Watch out for Kareena Kapoor Khan and Preity Zinta's special appearances."
Sneha May Francis of Emirates 24/7 said: "Although director-duo Krishna DK and Raj Nidimoru attempted to inject Hollywood sensibilities into a Bollywood format, they struggled to keep it clever and witty. There's even a hint at 'happy ending' massage parlour adventures as the credits roll out, but that's hardly the tone of the film.
"The star of the show is undoubtedly Govinda. There's a reason why he's called the king of comedy. Whether it's flipping his sunglasses at random, or shoving Hollywood DVDs at his new scriptwriter, or paying for instant six-pack abs, he's got it down perfectly."
Rukmini Chopra of BollywoodLife.com said: "Romantic comedies can often be predictable and monotonous. But when added with a twist, it results to a film called Happy Ending!
"The storyline of the film is interesting, and is carried forward aptly by all the characters. The music is upbeat and catchy, G-Phaad Ke being the fun number as of now and being taken a notch higher by Govinda and his moves."
Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV said: "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.
"Do not expect the world from Happy Ending and you might actually find in it enough enjoyable patches to make a trip to the multiplex worth your while."
Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times said: "The film does exceedingly well on the craft front as it moves away from conventional techniques but fails to add a new dimension on the content front. But, you can always watch it for clever one liners and sharp jokes."
Subhash K Jha of IANS said: "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. The two actors get hand of the film's basic mood: same-same but different."
