Yash Puri, known for his films like Cheppalani Undi, and Alanti Sitralu, and his impactful role in Shakuntalam is poised to enthrall movie enthusiasts yet again with his latest project, Happy Ending. The teaser and trailer of the film have skillfully sparked curiosity, generating a tangible buzz. The movie made its way to the silver screen on February 2, 2024. The film is directed by Kowshik Bheemidi and has music by Ravi Nidamarthy. Read our detailed review here.

Story:

Harsh(Yash Puri) is burdened by a tragic curse imposed by Ratheshwar Baba (Ajay Ghosh). According to this curse, any woman Harsh shares intimacy with or even merely fantasizes about facing mortality on the same day. The curse’s grim stipulation dictates that any woman sharing intimacy with Harsh or even residing within the realms of his fantasies meets her demise on the very same day. This spectral predicament leaves Harsh emotionally guarded against the prospect of love. However, fate takes an unexpected turn when he crosses paths with Avani(Apoorva Rao). Caught in a web of dilemma, Harsh musters the courage to disclose the ominous curse to Avani, leaving her utterly perplexed. Did Avani approve of Harsh’s reality and what happens to the couple is the story of the film.

What about on-screen performances?

Yash Puri and Apoorva Rao effortlessly find themselves well-suited for their roles. Hailing from urban backgrounds, they bring a confident flair to their English-savvy characters, both delivering performance-centric portrayals. Yash Puri is especially good and takes on his role on a sincere note. Hit dialogue delivery and unique body language, suit the storyline perfectly. Ajay Ghosh, while limited to a few scenes, makes a notable impact. Vishnu Oi, portraying Harsh’s friend, adds a touch of humor to the film. Jhansi, as Baba’s estranged wife, delivers a commendable performance.

What about off-screen talents?

The musical compositions by Ravi Nidamarthy strike a balance without being overly extravagant. Cinematographer Ashok Seepally, editor Pradeep R Moram, and production designer Arvind Mule exhibit a keen understanding of the film’s universe, contributing significantly to its visual and editorial aspects. Producers Yogesh Kumar, Sanjay Reddy, and Anil Pallala uphold commendable production standards though the film is made on a low budget, it looks rich. The dialogues are fun and the production design was also good. The edit could have been a lot better in the first half.

What’s Hot

  • Basic storyline
  • A few comedy scenes
  • Climax

What’s Not

  • Routine narration
  • Over-the-top emotions
  • Forced comedy
  • Slow pace in the second half
  • Silly situations in conflict

Verdict

Overall, Happy Ending has a few interesting moments. It starts as an adult comedy, changes track to a coming-of-age romance and ends in no man’s land. You can give this film a shot when it comes on OTT.
