If one were to purely go by first impressions, Saif Ali Khan and Govinda's forthcoming film
promises to be a fresh, fun and non-traditional take on romance as we know in Bollywood.
The tagline of the film, which releases on November 28, says it all: 'break the rules while playing by the rules,' it says. A romantic comedy, Happy Ending also stars Ranvir Shorey, Kalki Koechlin, Ileana D'Cruz and Preity Zinta.

From the first trailer of the film, released on Thursday, we know that Govinda plays a struggling filmmaker looking for ways to his business from single screen to multiplexes. His solution? Approach an author (Saif Ali Khan) and ask him to write two parts for his films -- "Meet parents and Meet f****rs"!
Happy Ending promises to be a fun-filled ride. Sample some of the dialogues:
Saif: Fame, ladkiyaan, paisa, sab kuch toh hai mere paas. To ab kaam karne ki kya zarurat hai?
Govinda: Public khush honi chahiye yaar, apni akal ke loop me mat phans.
Talking about the film, Saif said in an earlier interview, "Happy Ending is a romantic comedy. She (Kareena Kapoor) has done a scene in the film, which is against (her) type. It's something you guys must not have expected, you all will be surprised."
Elaborating on his role in the film, he added, "There is a lot of talking in Happy Ending. Even that's too difficult! You need control over that... I think I prefer different kind of roles and I must say I love my role in Happy Ending."
The film is directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, who earlier gave us films like Go Goa Gone, Tusshar Kapoor-starrer Shor In The City and 99 (which featured Soha Ali Khan and Boman Irani).
