Before you plan to go to this movie or looking for the movie review ,please first decide / answer why you want to watch this movie or rather who do you want to watch this movie for.(from the cast)
Story – A girl – Happy ran away on the day of her wedding and accidentally reaches Pakistan in a truck and founds herself at a budding politician house who aspires to be a cricketer but is fulfilling his fathers dream of becoming a politician and change the history of Pakistan , is engaged to an influential businessman’s daughter Zoya. but the twist of events gets Happy’s fiancee , lover and father to Pakistan to get her back, thats the plot of this light hearted across the border comedy movie. playing on the cross country sentiments and with few strong punches to tickle you.
If you are a Diana Penty fan you dont have much choice but to watch it for sure ,as this is her second and scores a 2 too for Diana as Happy out of 5.a pretty face , could have been used better , could have been a stronger lead character as the title claims rather then just being a cute loud mouth giving headache to many in the movie and literally a heartache to her fans with her dead gorgeous looks, looked stunning throughout the movie and has that killing charismatic smile. So in spite of an average acting its her beauty you can pick this one for. not to miss this was the most uncalled jhansi ki rani portrayal of Happy in the entire movie. isnt it so tanu weds manu.
Why should you Watch this one ?
A must watch for Abhay deop , Piyush Mishra and jimmy shergil fans.These three are completely outstanding ,
Bilal (Abhay Deol ) – Son of the Pakistani governor referred as junior in the movie destined to change the history of Pakistan as per his father, Bilal with his good looks, perfect & the strongest character , beautifully written and well portrayed. a gentlemen to the core completely stands out. Few very strong dialogues from winning his girl over in just a scene to expression of feelings for Happy , his narration of facts and events is too good through out the movie.If you love him you simply cant miss this one and is a recommended watch.
Piyush Mishra ( Affridi ) is definitely going to make you fall in love with his pakistani avatar with a lot of urdu alfas. a comedy that is knit with the words from urdu and taking you on a laugh riot , to his version of a desire to have everything in Pakistan from gandhi to galib to kapil dev to Taj Mahal etc. his love for pakistan is hilarious and the way he has played the comical character is worth a watch. a 4 out of 5 in this one for his role and dialogues and outstanding comic timing.
Bagga (Jimmy shergil )– Probably jimmy has come a long way from his early chocolaty version. you might feel this is a sequel of Tanu weds manu (Oh sorry it isnt but yes its the same team so midas touch continues )and to an extent for jimmy’s character – yes ! it is. but he has some very powerful punch that are repetitive throughout the movie but gets you to laugh. From tere Bhai ki shaadi to Card chaap gaye hai , his illustration of his spends on the wedding, dancing on yara oh yara . so yes you can watch this if you are a Jimmy shergil fan or loved him in Tanu weds manu
Zoya (Momal Sheikh’s debut role ) — this new face has done brilliant acting where she did most of the acting through her eyes. looked pretty and a very strong character ,well written and very well portrayed.
Guddu (Ali Zaffar )– the guy who plays the lover of Happy is a cute , sweet madly in love with Happy , though he had played to his character but didnt had much to play to.
There are a lot of characters who tried to deliver the best they could in the screen space they had , few did it well while few terribly fail to do so and looks completely forced and stretched.
So is the end of the movie that goes completely out of track and comes across as a work to wrap the film quickly. While Bilal is not expressing his feelings for happy and helping the duo – Happy and Guddu get married to each other does give it uncomplicated ending. but still the 2nd part could have been better.so overall an abrupt ending while still a lot of across border punches.
