Pankaj Kapoor to Deliver Happiness at Your Doorstep in Bhavna Talwar's HAPPI (Hindi, 2011) Indian Film

[HAPPI (Happy) Hindi Film Poster]

Mumbai, Feb 19, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / Kreation Guru) If your mundane life has been taking away the million-dollar smile off your lips, film ‘Happi’ can be a retreat for the sad soul! May 20, 2011 - the release date - is the day when director Bhavna Talwar has decided to bring back joy and satisfaction back to the life of the urban audiences across India.

‘Happi’ is Talwar’s second directorial venture after ‘Dharm’ [buy DVD online] which won national acclaims. In Dharm, the monotonous life of a ritualistic Pandit Chaturvedi is encroached upon by an abandoned infant. Left with no choice, the priest grudgingly adopts the child. His life swivels into a whirlwind of laughter and joy, like the rigid priest has never experienced before. But fate knocks at his door in the guise of a woman who stakes a claim to the boy. The priest's world is shattered when he learns that his son Kartikeya is born of a Muslim mother. The four years of Kartikeya's childhood challenge the very core of Pandit Chaturvedi's belief in Hinduism - the 4000 years old way of life. What will persist? His love for his child or his love for his God, his religion? Dharm starred Pankaj Kapur, Supriya Pathak, Hrishitaa Bhatt, K K Raina, Daya Shankar Pandey, Pankaj Tripathy etc. and featured music by Debajyoti Mishra (interview).

Happi is being produced under the banner of ‘Rakht Charitra’ makers Vistaar Religare Films Fund which is co-owned by Bhavna’s husband, Sheetal Talwar and WSG Pictures. The film stars veteran actor Pankaj Kapur in the title role of Happi who is a homeless man indwelling on the streets of Mumbai. The plot revolves around how Happi spreads happiness and joy through his small gestures. The film may be a ‘satire’ as the director calls it but surely points a finger at societal conditions of today that has ripped the common man’s sense of a blissful existence.
