Three reasons why you should watch YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA 2
1) It's a complete Deol entertainer with humour [which sometimes goes overboard] designed to give you a ''chill pill.''
2) It does not pretend to be anything other than what it is meant to be, a comedy, which sometimes borders on insanity.
3) It also has Anupam Kher
, Johnny Lever
and Sucheta Khanna who come together for scenes, some of which are a laugh riot.
Don't go looking for a genius in the script, there is none, like in most of the recent blockbusters that have rewritten box-office figures. This one too, I believe, will have the cash registers jingling. Dharmendra fans are a legion.
So walk in for some entertainment...
Dharmendra (Dharam Singh) and his son Bobby Deol (Gajodhar) are conmen who have a crazy fan-following. Dharam is a Baba, whose mantra 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' wins him many devotees. He uses this 'complete trust in a god-man' (which actually reflects the state of some in our society today) to make easy money. He targets everyone one in sight.

Sunny Deol (Paramveer) his older son works hard in Scotland and sends money regularly to his dad and brother in the hope that they will give up their conning ways. He is convinced by the duo that they are leading a simple, hard-working life, and ask for more money to go on a 'Tirth Yatra'. Paramveer obliges. But things get out of control when he meets the two at the airport.
Paramveer has sought employment with Anu Kapoor (Yograj Khanna) who is unable to pay off a huge bank loan. Actually he is sent as a recovery agent by the bank to figure out what has gone wrong with Khanna.
Khanna, in the meanwhile, is being conned by the father and son duo who have presented themselves as 'Oberoi, Oberoi and Oberoi'. Dharam wants Prem (Gajodhar also 'Q' later on) to marry Khanna's daughter, Suman (Neha Sharma
) in the hope of getting wealthy. But the tables are turned when they realize they are stuck in a situation where Dharam has to quickly present Gajodhar alias Prem as 'Q', Prem's twin brother, to woo Khanna's actual daughter Reeth (Kristina Akheeva
). 'Q' (Bobby Deol) is now an artist whose painting leaves everyone shedding tears.
All this while, Khanna is unaware of the fact that Paramveer the 'Super Sardar' is actually Dharam's older son. Paramveer on the other hand is besotted by Reeth and tries to unsettle his dad and brother, in the hope of exposing them, without embarrassing them.
Add to it Johnny Lever and Anupam Kher as Joe Armstrong (a bad-man character which is well designed), Neha's electric charm, Reeth's simplicity and Sunny's dhai kilo ka haath and you have mayhem. CHECK OUT: Sangeeth Sivan - YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA 2 is better than first part
As usual, the Deols are having super fun. Sunny impresses the most with his fierce scream and his fists in motion. Neha is a natural in any situation. There's something about this girl and she's going to go a long way. Reeth makes an impressive debut; good-looking and a confident performer.
My only grouse is that they never show us the painting of 'Q'. I guess they did not want the audience leaving the auditorium in tears (no pun intended!).
For added entertainment, there is also a Dunston-like character. And yes, there's a new game, young people in love can now play. It's called ''Ek Tha Tiger, Ek Tha tiger.'' But to play that game, one will have to be sure the wall pipes are well fixed!
