The movie relies completely on the performances and camaraderie of its star cast as Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi has been loosely written. The dim-witted jokes, racist remarks and desperately trying to be funny scenes weigh down the charm of this follow-up. Comedy is scattered, unlike the previous film which kept you laughing throughout. Aziz resorts to Pakistan-bashing and mocking names and looks of Chinese to make this sequel work. 'Sab Ek Jaise Dikhte Hain' and names like 'Fa Q' and 'Makaju' might make you smile but that's not what we expect from a maker who gave us a hilarious film on runaway bride. Characters dance in superhero costumes and unnecessary play dumb charades to evoke laughter, making you wonder, 'why is this happening?'. But that doesn't mean, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is a mess, it is sweet and funny at some places. The trailer was a complete fun-ride triggering excitement in the audience. However, the entire film has just a few such moments except those one-liners, which we have already heard in the trailer.
