Sonakshi Sinha, Jimmy Shergill, Jassie Gill, Diana Penty, Ali Fazal, Piyush Mishra, Jason Tham
Over the years we have seen many sequels which have tasted the success at Box-Office, which is because of their rich content and fabulous performances. But there are few sequels which failed to impress. Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is another film which failed to repeat the success of its prequel.
Started on the same note, Happy (Sonakshi Sinha), lands in Shanghai, China, where she gets kidnapped due to mistaken identity. Not only Happy but there are some other characters who are kidnapped in this story.
This film focuses much on Sonakshi Sinha and thus you do miss the spunky Diana as her role is reduced to that of a supporting cast and so is the case with Ali Fazal.
Jassie Gill as Sonakshi's love interest is a pleasant surprise. He is charming and fragile as he essays his well-etched role astutely. The contrast in his character is what makes him endearing.
Denzil Smith is flawless as the sleazy antagonist Adnan Chow camouflaging as a suave and erudite businessman. How he teaches the Chinese to appreciate things that are Indian, makes for a good laugh.
Jason Tham as his lackey Chang, Aparshakti Khurana as Happy's runaway-fiance Aman, have their moments of on-screen glory and they leave an indelible mark as actors.
After these performances let's take a look at the writing department. Though it was not expected from Mudassar Aziz this time he disappointed us all with poor writing. There are a few one-liners which will surely bring a smile to your face but overall writing is no up to the mark.
The graph of the narrative has its crests and trough but never is there a moment of equilibrium. Also his climax, though a riot, does not have the zing of a mad-caper.
Overall, the film is not as impressive as its predecessor but still, it can bring some respite to your stressed life!
