Somewhere down the line you realize that Happy Ending is exactly what they are making fun of in the movie. A little too unrealistic that leaves us hanging with a thought, "What the hell?" A little more focus and a crisp story would have made the movie far more entertaining.

Happy Ending is not a bad movie, it just could have been better. It is a decent watch that'll offer you some laughs here and there, with some popcorn and coke, Happy Ending makes for a watchable movie.

The film is a funny take on modern day relationships. 'Happy Ending' is a light-hearted comedy about rom-coms. Despite being a bona fide romantic comedy, the film goes beyond it.

The movie is a mix of humour, a double fun dose of Govinda and Saif. While Govinda enthrals the audience by delivering funny dialogues with a dead pan face, Saif Ali Khan creates humour with his usual quirkiness.

Happy Ending not entirely hit bang on this new developed saying but definitely takes a dig on movies, which are deemed to be non-sensible just to satisfy the ‘entertainment’ lust of the audience who doesn’t bother to put much brains to find logics.

A light-hearted yet a satirical take are what director duo of Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. keep in their mind before they begin with Happy Ending and yes they succeed in giving us an end product.

While the first half of the film is enjoyable and bearable, it's the second half which tends to drag at many points. Even though the film is really funny in parts, a crisp hand at the editing table could have saved this semi-drag fiasco.

On the whole, HAPPY ENDING is a film which leaves you with a happy feeling. It drags in parts but is worth a watch, at least for Saif's performance.

Happy Ending, at its core, is pretentious and doesn’t quite live up to expectations, save for Govinda, who lights up the screen with his mere presence and those legendary moves.

In a film that every cast member is so desperately trying to fit in, he is the only one who actually manages to convince us that he truly belongs there and he knows it.
