Last Friday, Sonakshi Sinha's Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi clashed with Nawazuddin Siddiqui's Genius at the box office. The film is a sequel to 2016 comedy Happy Bhag Jayegi, in which Diana Penty played the role of Harpreet or Happy #1. Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is all about the confusion that is created after Sonakshi is introduced as Navpreet or Happy #2, who gets abducted as the kidnappers mistook her for Harpreet.
In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee writes: "Sonakshi does most of the heavy lifting, but the lightness of the film undermines her efforts. The high-on-enthusiasm Jassi Gill, too, is let down by a half-baked character. Jimmy Sheirgill, for once, is unable to rise above the script. Piyush Mishra hams his way through the film."
Directed by Mudassar Aziz, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi has cameos by Diana Penty and Ali Fazal.
