Happy Bhag Jayegi.

I had seen the trailer for this film earlier and had made up my mind then to see it when released. I was able to earlier this evening and I am very happy that I did.

It is a very well made movie and despite the fact that I had heard about two of the actors earlier and had seen only one of them on screen before, I enjoyed the performance of all the actors. The story is partly in India and partly in Lahore, Pakistan and that adds a bit of masala to the effect.

I particularly liked the performance of the Pakistani actress Momal Sheikh who does her job with aplomb that belies the fact that this was her first movie experience!

If you are, like me fond of seeing light hearted comedy, this is a picture that you must see.

  4. I seem to recall another person using masala in this kind of way recently…and of course, if I want to understand the connotations it’s simple to highlight the word and Google rushes to my aid. So what I get top of the list in my location – restaurant brand:

    The trouble they have been having and now they have changed many of the local branch names: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=11518927

    • The phrase that we actually use here is “mirch-masala”, which means, chilli and spices! It is a pity that the Masala group is in dire straits over there. Paying such pathetic wages is certainly exploitation.
