Happy Bhag Jayegi is a light-hearted take on the cross-border camaraderie that revolves around a runaway bride. It lures you into throwing logic out of the window (‘baher’) for a while as it offers clean entertainment with ample gags. The cat and mouse game between the characters, with a dash of romance, forms the story.
