Films from two diverse genres are opening in theatres today - comedy film Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi and action thriller Genius. Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, directed by Mudassar Aziz, is a sequel to Diana Penty and Ali Fazal's 2016 film Happy Bhag Jayegi. With two Happys on the screen the comedy quotient of this film is surely doubling up. In the new film, Sonakshi Simha takes the centrestage from Diana as the latter's old suitor Daman Singh Bagga (played by Jimmy Sheirgill) kidnaps the former because of the confusion due to similar names. As the new Happy tries to figure out to deal with the situation at hand the old Happy returns with new ways to outfit Daman.
