Happy Ending Hindi Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
It's easy to see why Happy Ending doesn't work after all. This is a film that wants to be many things all at once - a rom-com between a fading star and the next big thing, also a clever satire on Bollywood. It's overlong at 135 minutes, and on occasion dreadfully boring. I'm going with a generous two out of five for Happy Ending. You'll only be truly happy at its ending.

Mostly, Happy Ending's a fun film with a melodious, modern take on individuals and pyaar. It's an NRI movie that side-steps dilemmas and pain. And it's probably the first Hindi film where the heroine cheekily tells the hero, "Show your boobs!", performed with polished elan. Wrapping Hollywood ribbons on a Bollywood heart, this is a nice ending - and a good start.

Raj Nidimoru, Krishna DK and Sita Menon have written a story and a screenplay which are very disappointing and very class-appealing. On the whole, Happy Ending is a dull fare, meant mainly for the good multiplexes in the big cities. But its fate in the ordinary multiplexes, in single-screen cinemas and in centres other than the big cities will be far from good. Overall, it will entail heavy losses to all concerned.

Happy Ending, at its core, is pretentious and doesn’t quite live up to expectations, save for Govinda, who lights up the screen with his mere presence and those legendary moves. In a film that every cast member is so desperately trying to fit in, he is the only one who actually manages to convince us that he truly belongs there and he knows it.

Happy Ending enmeshes the wildly absurd with the mildly funny to deliver two-and-a-quarter hours of harmless entertainment that does not overly try the audience's patience despite the many holes that it is riddled with. If you expect Happy Ending to get somewhere, you are watching the wrong film. Do not expect the world from Happy Ending and you might actually find in it enough enjoyable patches to make a trip to the multiplex worth your while.

Happy Ending can hold your attention throughout its length except some not-so-necessary intimate scenes. There is enough in the story to provide you a good dose of entertainment, you just don’t need to expect too much. The film does exceedingly well on the craft front as it moves away from conventional techniques but fails to add a new dimension on the content front. But, you can always watch it for clever one liners and sharp jokes. It’s positively, certainly and definitely a fun film.

The Bollywood script getting written within this film somewhere starts tallying with the hero’s own story. This clever move allows us to flit between a formula pic and an unconventional rom-com. Sadly this is also one of the many reasons Happy Ending’s ending comes a good half hour before everything could’ve ended, for better or worse. But, as an audience, at no point do you totally lose interest. If you keep your expectations in check, this one is definitely worth checking out in the theatre.

Romcom seems like an easy genre to execute but clearly is not everyone's cup of tea. With a good budget and good looking actor it's easy to make a good looking film but it's tough to make an entertaining one. Happy Ending is a decent one-time watch.

They seem to be struggling with the film's plot mid way. While the first half of the film is enjoyable and bearable, it's the second half which tends to drag at many points. The film shows deep traces of the hit American show 'CALIFORNIFICATION' and Saif's own film HUM TUM. On the whole, HAPPY ENDING is a film which leaves you with a happy feeling. It drags in parts but is worth a watch, at least for Saif's performance.

  1. I seriously don't understand the reviews of the emirates critic called sneha
    administration it's a hearty request just keep reviews of critics who post with stars and it's easy to understand whether movie is good or bad sneha seriously confuses

  2. Read full review at justbollywood.in

    1. Bar bar justdial bor nahi hota kya

  3. I agree with you Inder. But does her review really matters to you?
    Better wait for Rajeev Masand

  4. Rajeev Masand is playing safe

    u cant give 2.5 to every single movie

    this is ridiculous

    1. He has not even even posted a review yet idiot.

  5. Awesome movie
    It's a hilarious joyride
    Couldn't stop laughing
    Govinda and Saif rocked it

    The search for a Happy Ending kills a lot, for bad! [2/5]

    You don’t have to be a hardcore fan to know the set recipe for any romantic comedy film. Boy meets girl. Both are opposite in every sense. Girl falls for the boy. Boy hates commitment. Heart breaks. Love aches. Girl leaves. Boy misses. Boy seeks. Boy realizes. And then comes the fairly famous ‘Airport’ scene where things apparently fall into their pre-designed place! How hard it could be! But what if you want to break it and mold the same in a complete new pattern? Well, you have to be smart enough to pull it off and not confused even an ounce to ruin the promise and the prospect. Impressive filmmaker duo Raj & DK’s HAPPY ENDING fits in both the scenario equally. And that makes it an irritating mash-up of likeable scenes & enjoyable smart one-liners with futilely overstretched plot & an almost never-ending climax.

    Yudi [Saif Ali Khan] is a ‘one book wonder’ writer who hasn’t written any more in last 6 years in short of good ending but knows well when to call for an end in a relationship. Hearing his girl saying those three magical words could cause him signs of losing his confidence to his illustrious stuttering state. His latest break-up status with the all mental & dental overbearing girlfriend [the cutely annoying Kalki] is still ‘complicated’. He couldn’t tell her straight because he didn’t want to hurt her. ‘What a thoughtful jerk!’ one of his ex-girlfriends compliments him.

    In a parallel track, the fading writer Yudi has no other option left but to write a superhit romantic comedy film taking so-called ‘scene by scene’ inspirations from Hollywood hits for a Bollywood superstar [Govinda keeps his charms working]. Though his life so far has been one such romantic comedy, Yudi chooses to go around with a budding writer Aanchal [Ileana D’Cruz] to get help and soon lands himself in situations expected from more than a mile! Well, almost!

    The film works well at many fronts. Beautiful locations, pictorial cinematography, smart one-liners and Saif Ali Khan back in ‘his’ den. He does hit every chord right portraying a puzzled, commitment-scared flirt dressed in all designer summery cool clothing line with the costliest car on road. He sure looks confident and comfortable as an actor here and that’s much relief after his horrendous HUMSHAKALS act. Kalki marks an electrifying presence the whole time she’s on screen. Ranvir Shorey succeeds in providing some good laughs but it’s Govinda who never misses your attention and love for his expressive mannerism. My favorite subplot includes Preity Zinta playing an understanding, kind and gracious ex-girlfriend of Yudi.

    Film falters big time by reaching nowhere while looking aimlessly for a different recipe of a romantic comedy. You can not compromise with the one you pulled your guns at. That never takes you any close to heroism. And Raj & DK being the whistleblowers in the industry, it feels worse. You can expect any low from Kohlis, Anands and Malhotras of renowned big banners but not from these two. Film starts settling for a convenient, age-old, tried & tested ending after much wandering in the second half. It gets so dreary that the last 20 min seems unbearably long. Yudi mouths a thoughtful line at the end, “One shouldn’t always look for a happy ending. End it wherever you think it should”. I wish the writers & the makers of the film would have taken it seriously. [2/5]

  7. HAPPY ENDING is yet another attempt by director duo Raj Nidimoru & Krishna D.K. to offer Indian cine audience glistening, newfangled & avant-garde cinematic experience by making a Kickass Romedy (As per Govinda in the movie) but it fails to strike the right chords. The biggest drawback of Happy Ending is that the story doesn't have any interesting twist to it and keeps going on in a neutral manner. For my detailed review, please visit........http://rohitmoviereview.blogspot.in/

  8. The best part of this movie is the picturization and camera - it appears nothing short of a well-made Hollywood movie. The movie is very BRIGHT like a broad day light (like the Pixar's Rango movie), GIGANTIC and showing BEAUTIFUL California's locales. Indian cinema has come such a long way. You could watch this movie twice for the bright, beautiful and gigantic picturization. Its a treat to watch Saif and Illeana. It is better than Happy New Year, Bang Bang (is that even a movie?), Kick, etc.

  9. Romantic comedies have always been a trend in Bollywood. The industry definitely comes up with at least one rom-com a month. But what has been the biggest problem with these films is the lack of original idea, the uniqueness in the story and the same old tiring comedy.

    Director duo ‘Raj and DK’, best known for ‘Go Goa Gone’, come up with their version of rom-com (or as they call it ‘Romedy’) with their latest release ‘Happy Ending’, also marking a comeback of Saif Ali Khan.

    Yudi (Saif Ali Khan) is an Indian writer based in Los Angeles who wrote his last novel supposedly six years ago. Yudi does not believe in the ‘I Love You thing’, not because he is afraid to say it but because he does not want to get into the emotional shit after that. With not much work left, Yudi decides to write a ‘Kickass’ script for single screen Bollywood superstar Armaan (Govinda), who wishes to take over the multiplexes. Meanwhile Yudi meets Aanchal (Ileana D’cruz) and soon falls for her because of their like-minded attitude towards relationships. What happens is that Yudi’s life begins to behave the same way as the characters of his movie script, a not so perfect ‘romedy’.

    The biggest problem with Happy New Year is that it is constantly trying to be too different when the real fact is just the opposite. Director duo Raj and DK have clearly lost the standards after ‘99’, ‘Shor in the City’ and ‘Go Goa Gone’. The film is just like the usual rom com drama though with some really witty punches in between. I wish I could see more of them.

    Saif Ali Khan is natural and spontaneous, not much fault in his acting clearly. Ileana D’cruz is not much impressive. Govinda, though with limited screen presence, is spectacular. Not to forget the six pack abs he shows off in style. Ranveer Shorey and Kalki Kolechin are decent.

    Happy Ending tries too hard to get your attention, yet fails at most attempts. Not sure about the ending, but the movie definitely did not make me ‘Happy’.

    Rating- 2/5
