Movie Review: Happy Ending – Thank God This One Had An Ending!!

happy ending-04It’s disappointing, it’s pretentious and it’s an opportunity gone waste; well we are talking about the Saif Ali Khan starrer Happy Ending that released today (November 21, 2014).

Happy Ending is all about Yudi (Saif Ali Khan), a Los Angeles based author, who struck gold with his debut novel and is living off royalties. Yudi is commitment phobic, too full of himself and irresistible to the women.

He is trying to wriggle his way out of his relationship with his psychotic girlfriend Vishakha (Kalki Koechlin) when he meets another writer Aanchal Reddy (Ileana D’Cruz). Aanchal also happens to be a bestselling author in Los Angeles, which surprising no one knows off.

Yudi and Aanchal instantly fall in love and this is when Armaan (Govinda) walks in and summons Yudi to write a film that will be a blockbuster all over the world.

Armaan is a self obsessed actor who thinks that the audience will consume whatever he offers them. After winning the single screen, Armaan is out there to conquer the class which he defines as the multiplex audience.

The makers of Happy Ending are calling it a spoof on romantic comedies. With Govinda and Saif Ali Khan in lead roles, one was expecting the film to be fun but then it falls flat and one is happy the moment the film ends.

Kareena Kapoor and Preity Zinta are the only bright spots in the movie.

One expected to get entertained with Happy Ending, but sadly the film falls shot in every department.

What’s surprising is the fact that the talented director duo; Krishna D.K. and Raj Nidimoru, who have belted out films like 99, Shor In The City and Go Goa Gone in the past have come up with a film like Happy Ending.

All in all, Happy Ending is saddled with a patchy script, performances that are hardly memorable and music that can hardly be enjoyed. This one can can easily be given a miss.

Now all eyes are set on Karan Johar’s Ungli that for sure looks promising.
