Krishna DK. Deals with the story of individuals wanting to have fun of romance,
but having commitment phobia. This plot has been experimented many times in the
past, some have worked and some have not worked. And this movie Happy Ending
lacks romance as well as comedy. It has comedy in bits and pieces, whereas romance
as such is not at all felt throughout the movie.
the book, 5 ½ years have gone by and he had 8 ½ girlfriends also. He is living
off royalties. He believes in enjoying life with fame, money and girls. He
breaks off with the girls when they start proposing (The very first scene has
Kareena proposing Saif, followed by his walking out of the relationship). Montu
(Ranvir Shorey), Yudi’s friend loves to party with him, but he has to actually
seek permission from his wife for the same. And there is Yudi’s alter ego
synonym Yogi (Saif Ali Khan) who keeps questioning Yudi’s every action, throws
words of wisdom. Vishakha (Kalki Koechlin), is madly in love with Yudi. She puts

commitment-phobic (who actually churns out romantic best sellers but does not
believe in the concept of love). Rest of the movie revolves around, how Yudi
and Aanchal approach their relationship. They also spend time together to write
stories. What is it that brings Aanchal and Yudi closer (probably nothing)? What
happens when two commitment-phobic people get together in life? Is there any
Happy Ending in their relationship?
Ali Khan lacked the charm he had in Love Aaj Kal, Hum-Tum. Ileana definitely
looks very pretty on screen, but that is it about her performance. Kalki has
done justice to her obsessive character. Divya (Preity Zinta), Yudi’s ex-girl
friend has nothing much to do. Govinda gives some laughter moments with his
cosmetic surgery and six pack abs scene. Ranvir is absolutely wasted. Music is
not at all impressive. Movie has been mostly shot at Los Angles, San
