Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegiopened to poor reviews. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film one-and-a-half stars out of five. He wrote: "The primary problem with Happy Phirr Bhaag Jayegi isn't that it is pure drivel. That is something that could be pardoned in Bollywood laugh riot. But here, the hilarity quotient is low. The precursor had delivered on at least a part of the promise inherent in the quirky premise. This one goes through the motions without ever coming close to finding a genuine rhythm."
Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegiis the sequel to the 2017 film Happy Bhag Jayegi. Except Abhay Deol, the entire cast of the film has been retained. Sonakshi Sinha, Jassie Gill and Piyush Mishra are the newest addition to the film. The film also features Jimmy Sheirgill, Ali Fazal and Diana Penty. The film has been directed by Mudassar Aziz.
