Happy Pill Review & Rating
Mainak Bhaumik’s Happy Pill is an innocent and lovable film that leaves a smile on one's face after watching the film. The film perfectly blends comic, tragic, romantic and thriller elements and delivers a content that everyone can relish. It opens with the inventor of Happy Pill, Siddhartha AKA Happywalla played by Ritwick Chakraborty getting arrested by the police. Inside the jail, journalist Indrani (Sohini Sarkar) interviews him and he tells her the story behind making the Happy Pills.

At a crucial moment of his life, he realizes, happiness in an inner possession. A blessed genius, he invents a pill that can make people happy. The story follows his invention and how it started to change the lives around.
The first of the film tends to get a bit melodramatic and high-pitched in places. However, the second half is pitch perfect. It unfolds several twists and turns with the right amount of pace, drama and thrill. Mainak deserves a round of applause for incorporating recent incidents like demonetization in the story to show the futility of worldly possessions. He has treated the film with utter freshness instead of making the matter grave and intense. Pocha Da (Mir)’s funny presence and dialogues makes the film more enjoyable.
In acting, Ritwick Chakraborty is as usually excellent. He is at the best of his craft. It becomes impossible to imagine anyone else in the character of Siddhartha. Parno as his depressed sister Rini is absolutely natural. Mir adds some much-needed comic relief. Sohini has done her job aptly. Film's music demands a special mention.
