Anupama Chopra's review: Yamla Pagla Deewana 2

By HT

Direction: Sangeet Sivan
Actors: Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Dharmendra, Anupam Kher
Rating: * 1/2

At one point in Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, Paramveer, played by Sunny Deol, looks up at the skies and exclaims: Not fair Rabba. I felt exactly that
after watching this incoherent mess of a movie.

I’m not even going to attempt to recount the plot, because there isn’t any. The Deols — Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby — and director Sangeeth Sivan are attempting here to create an entertainer.

Which means anything goes, including a blonde Anupam Kher in a space suit playing a mad villain called Dude; sumo wrestlers and an orangutan in a pivotal role. In case you are wondering about the humour, here are some samplers: Dude’s henchmen call themselves Hiroshima and Nagasaki. When Dude asks for an update, one says: Plan bomb ho gaya. Another time, when Dude asks, kitne aadmi thhe, they reply: Just one Singh. Get it?

Even the collective charm of the Deols can’t make this drivel palatable. It’s exhausting, loud and so cheerfully moronic that it hurts.
