Storyline

The film begins in Canada, travels to Banaras and eventually makes its way to Punjab. The Father Son duo of Dharam Singh and Gajodhar Singh (Dharmendra and Bobby Deol) are the biggest conmen in Banaras. Their happy go lucky existence involves drinking and pulling off hilarious cons on unsuspecting people. The only hitch in their perfect albeit notorious life arrives in the form of Paramveer Singh Dhillon (Sunny Deol). A brawny and honest NRI from Vancover, Paramveer lands up in Banaras claiming to be Gajodhar's elder brother separated at childhood. The duo willingly accepts Paramveer into their fold only to exploit his muscle power to serve their con games. Meanwhile Gajodhar falls in love with Saheba (Kulraj Randhawa), a beautiful Sardarni from Punjab. As their romance reaches its peak, her brothers arrive and forcibly take her away. Paramveer saves the day with a crazy plan to win the girl back for Gajodhar which leads them to the rustic heartlands of Punjab. What follows is a ... Written by Anonymous

The Deol's are back and surely with a bang and lot of love.
19 January 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Loved it, loved it, loved it. This is called an entertainer or in Indian language 'A Paisa Vasool' movie. I call this movie a celebration of the Deol trinity stardom.

As per story there's nothing new but that's what most of Bollywood movies are meant to be. They are like fashion which is to be repeated after every three decades but presented in a fresh new way. This process is as difficult as it is easy and this is where YMD stands out. It is a superb comedy blending the old fashion Bollywood separation formula with family love, situational comedy and lot of Deol muscle power.

Acting vise all have done a superb job. Dharmendra to be mentioned even at the age of 75, showed that he still holds his charisma and comic timing(reminding the old days of Chupke Chupke), Sunny Deol shines throughout the movie with his acting and never looked so handsome in his carrier while Bobby played very well with his mischievous romeo character. Other supporting cast was great and also the newcomer Kulraj Randhawa was an eye candy with her sweet role.

Regarding the screenplay, the first half is not that much powerful and which is the only drawback of the movie. I wanna tel everyone that don't judge this movie on its first half because once the movie steps on the beautiful land of Punjab, the screenplay doesn't stop itself improving higher and higher and also taking our cheeks higher and higher. It becomes such a entertaining laughing roller-coaster ride with no unnecessary cheap jokes and u can feel pain in your jaw at the end . Watch for the Sunny Deol's screaming scene in the fight. This is kind of movie which laughs at itself and makes us laughs too. You will surely get a 'HAPPY' felling at the end.

GO FOR IT! and congrats to Deols.
