Saif Ali Khan is one of uncommon actors in Bollywood. Inspite of being a bit aged he is still seen in a youth centric films while his performance in the same was pretty good as well.We have another film from his acting career "Happy Ending".This time we have a rom-com set in exotic locations in the US west-coast.We have good looking american girls, intellectual screenplay, smart camera work and few Bollywood beauties. "Happy Ending" had a great start with some youthful, energetic and exciting ingredients yet all of these seems to be convoluted after a while. We might get bored with all of the intellectually exciting moments. Yudi (Saif Ali Khan) was a successful writer with a book he wrote five and half years ago but now he is an struggling actor in search of a new inspiration. He got a rival writer, a female rom-com writer Aanchal (Illena D'Cruz) by whom he gets inspired.
We also have Kareena Kapoor in a cameo appearance and Preity Zinta playing another ex. of Yudi. I just have one thing to say that too many hot girls may not make a sexy film. We can even understand the formula of making a rom-com film yet we didn't a god film."Go Goa Gone" director who create a nice ambiance last repeats the same mistake this time as well.We just get an intellectual ambiance but not a great film. Saif and Illena are not bad actors but there seems to be issue in good understanding of the demand of roles. They does a good job as an individual but not as a pair.
Overall, the film isn't boring yet not convincing.Over personification of a writer hurts a bit. Govinda brings a little charm to the film but his comically entertaining body language and dialogue delivery.Yet, Govinda's role looks a bit underestimated and underwritten for the most part.
