The story of Happy Bhag Jayegi revolves around Harpreet Kaur aka happy (Diana Penty), who runs out from her wedding ceremony and reaches Pakistan by mistake. She meets there with Bilal Ahmed (Abhay Deol) and Zoya (Momal Sheikh).

Happy’s loss has been a National issue for both the countries and everyone wants to find her out. In between humorous twists and turns, two guys Daman Singh Bagga (Jimmy Shergill) and Guddu (Ali Fazal) goes Pakistan for her search. The rest you would get to know after watching the movie.


Happy Bhag Jayegi is the combo of romance and drama with extra doses of light humour which is very impressive to watch. Although, lots of films in the past had been made on Indo-Pak but this is something new with this angle. Plus the energetic star cast has given so many fantastic moments to  share the delight.


Happy Bhag Jayegi movie review


Diana Penty is making her Bollywood comeback after 4 years. She was last seen in Homi Adjania’s hit film Cocktail (2012) for which she received the Best Debut Actress nominations in Filmfare. In Happy Bhag Jayegi, Diana has surprised everyone with her fierce  performance.

Despite her foreign upbringing, Diana has superbly played this Punjabi character and her confidence in the film is really fantastic and full marks go to her. Rest of the star cast including Abhay, Jimmy and Ali have done a tremendous worked their roles. Pakistani actress Momal showed that she is an immensely talented actress and you will definitely see her in more Bollywood films in future.
