Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 | Movie Review


The bitter-sweet fight between the shrewd father-son duo and honest son goes on but with a hatke style and the film bursts into a riot of laughter. Director Sangeeth Sivan brings forth you the old lovable trio back and puts in a lot of drama. The trio, after their last meeting in Canada, meet up again in The United Kingdom. Paramveer (Sunny Deol) establishes a “YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA” club and invites his dad Dharam Singh Dhillon (Dharmendra) and bro Gajodhar Singh Dhillon (Bobby Deol) to meet him and there begins a series of unintentionally silly errors and “comedy”. All the three, along with their leading ladies Reet (Kristina Akheeva) and Suman ( Neha Sharma) and a Shahrukh’s ‘Don’ aping fool (Johnny Lever) make a cocktail with choicest of ingredients of fun, romance, madness and love. Adding more fun is a cute Orangutan named Einstein. His every action makes audience fall in love with him!

As usual Dharamji is at his simplistic best and Bobby and Sunny fit in their respective roles perfectly. Kristina Akheeva, an Australian model-turned actress plays Reet who is a die-hard art lover and works at an art-gallery and love-interest of Paramveer. Neha Sharma plays Reet’s sis Suman who is a bubbly cute Salman Khan fan and is happy with the way her beau Gajju ( Bobby Deol) saves her by fighting people in a typical Philmi Ishtyle. Anu Malik is a big miscast as the Scotland-based businessman. Anupam Kher as Dude G is decent, but wasted nevertheless. The story line is monotonous though, and same’s the case with Sangeeth Sivan’s direction. And music is not as foot-tapping as it was in it’s prequel. However, the cinematography is good . The leading ladies are perfect eye-candies but are totally forgettable. One character who’s not forgettable is our darling Einstein. Kudos to it and I suggest, do go see the movie but this time, just for Einstein…
