When we love, we see no reason.
The very essence of love, at its truest, thrives on the unreasonable.
'Babloo Happy Hai' is a film that embraces these words, as it takes you on a musical journey through the breathtaking mountains, and through the lives of a set of memorable characters who will make you think again about love, and fall in love with love itself. It is a story set in the fast-paced times we live in today, concerning those who are forced to move the fastest – our youth. Amidst the common notions of irreverence and rebellion, the youth of today is troubled by many questions, puzzled by many choices, battling with a lot of pressures; wandering perhaps, but not entirely lost. The most basic of these conflicts, however, remains the question of love.
The film begins in the posh neighbourhoods of the capital, New Delhi, where 24 year old Jatin is planning a road trip up north with his buddies Harvinder (a.k.a. Harry) and Rohan. For Jatin, the endearing young groom-to-be, this could be the last such youthful indulgence before he gets tied down (quite literally) by bride-to-be Tamanna, who is a bratty, high society number, gleefully building on her idea of a 'perfect' life starting with a 'perfect' wedding . While the hardly-perfect Jatin's 'love' is one of much labour, Harry's hopeless quest for love (or something like it) lands the happy-go-lucky Sardar in positions he had only dreamt of. Rohan, usually the voice of reason amongst the three, is going through a rough patch with his long-time boyfriend, and hopes to get some much needed fresh air and good old guy fun with his buddies in the mountains.
Whether through drunken nights or impromptu dance lessons, through intense arguments and intimate moments, Jatin and Natasha find themselves hopelessly drawn towards each other. The story draws to a climax when Jatin comes face to face with a secret that Natasha has been battling for a while. The news sends Jatin's already unsettled life, completely topsy-turvy, as his love is replaced by a bewildered hate, in spite of Natasha's efforts to clear his misunderstandings. It is when his self realisation take over his misbelieves, that he finally gives her a listen, and the true nature of the events are revealed.
Jatin is ashamed of his failure to trust her, and embarks on one final trip to Aashray; to claim his love, without any more fear. With the help of Harsh and Deepa, Jatin and his friends embrace a unique outlook towards life, one of positivity and a fighting spirit, and of love that conquers all. Like Natasha always says:
You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.
