‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’ Review: Laugh Out LoudJanuary 14th, 2011 - 7:52 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Film: Yamla Pagle Deewana
Direction: Samir Karnik
Cast: Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol,Dharmendra, Kulraj Randhawa, Anupam Kher
Directed by Samir Karnik, Yamla Pagla Deewana is a frothy and fun-filled movie that will have the audience in splits. It is a film that is all about the Deol trio of Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby who conjure up a great on-screen camaraderie to dish out a laugh riot.
The film is firstly and thankfully not a slapstick though there are hints of spoofy gags. It also relies on the image of the Deols while outlining their characters. For instance, Bobby has been presented mostly as a lover boy while Sunny breaks bones and also mimics the now-famous hand-pump scene from Gadar.
Dharmendra is a delight to watch and will tickle your bones with some of his witty one-liners. The entire film is a comedy of errors with a pretty hotchpotch storyline. Bobby plays Gajodhar and wants to marry Saheba (essayed by newcomer Kulraj Randhawa). But Saheba’s brothers decide to accept Sunny Deol as their potential ‘damaad’.
Sunny plays Paramveer who reunites with his lost dad and brother in the first few minutes of the film. Thereafter, the trio indulge in their antics and draw huge guffaws from the audience.
Though the performances are commendable, the music of the film is weak and has got only the title track to boast for. But chuckles are guaranteed with some genuinely hilarious moments. However, had the editing team done a better job, the film could have been much better. Nevertheless, it is a watchable flick if you wanna laugh out loud.
