The Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 Movie Review

'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2' is a con in the name of comedy!
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi
Rating: 2/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Yamla Pagla Deewana 2. An orangutan may put up with a lot of nonsense; the audience can’t. And though PETA can see red over a primate being made to do human silliness in the name of Bollywood entertainment in Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, the animal rights group might take heart and comfort from the fact that the humans easily surpass their ungainly ancestor in this endeavor. As for us money-paying audience, we forfeited our right to protection against cinematic torture the day mindless comedies began minting 100 crores. So this one too we will have to suffer and survive.

Cutting to the chase, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is not a patch on its prequel. Not only is it clobbered with lame jokes that leave you embarrassed than amused, it goes on plodding for a good, bum-aching 155 minutes with a lot of song, dance, action, daaru and Deolgiri thrown in.

Dharmendra plays the Yamla Baba conning the gullible, money throwing devotees in Varanasi along with his son and sidekick Gajodhar (Bobby Deol). The duo plans to con a wealthy London club owner Yograj Khanna (Annu Kapoor with a fake Brit accent) and find an easy way in via Mr. Moneybags’ pretty daughter Suman (Neha Sharma), a staunch fan of Salman Khan. It takes Gajodhar a few ‘Dabangg’ antics to break ice with her, but trouble comes in the formidable form of the righteous elder brother Paramveer (Sunny Deol), whose faint hope that his brother and father have reformed for good is shattered in no time.

Paramveer himself has a vested interest in Yograj. As the recovery agent of a bank, he’s out to recover hefty loan money from the club owner.

Throw in a slew of madcap characters like a greedy builder and land-grabber (Anupam Kher) with a dream to make a huge mall where Yograj’s club stands, or the crackpot don (Johnny Lever) imitating Shahrukh Khan but taking an easy beating from Paramveer, or a bunch of Sumos taking an equally easy pummeling for Paramveer, and you have an overstuffed but unpalatable pastiche of Punjabism called Yamla Pagla Deewana 2.

True, there are a few stray funny moments here and there. Like Sunny Deol’s hollering act leaving his rivals airborne, or Bobby Deol’s shameless chicanery as the artist named Q, or even Anupam Kher’s cocky builder Dude Armstrong. But that’s about it. A talent like Dharmendra is foisted with such lame lines that one can’t help but feel pained and embarrassed for this seasoned veteran.

Australian model Kristina Akheeva plays an art enthusiast for whom Paramveer falls, but whom younger and shameless brother Gajodhar too eyes. She’s merely reduced to being an eye candy with heavily accented dialogue delivery.

Among the Deols, Sunny and Bobby manage to save the show a bit, but are done in by a threadbare script with exceptionally unimaginative writing and inapt direction by Sangeeth Sivan.

Put shortly, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is no laugh riot. It’s a con in the name of comedy. Watch it only if you are game to get ripped off.

Rating: **
