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

Deols are back with a bang !!!!!
22 January 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Yamla Pagla Deewana is a movie full of energy and the Deol charisma assuring entertainment for the masses.The Deol magic is maximum utilized again after apne(2007) and the movie relies on the image of the Deols.

Dharmendra is a delight to watch on the screen with his wits and emotions.Bobby Deol comes up with one of his best performance and shows his comical skills along with keeping his old lover-boy-romeo image.Sunny Deol catches the limelight by his Rajnikanth style action with a macho-man image(what he does the best) and also shows his light humor quotient.New actress Kulraj Randhawa does her job well and is a promising talent.

Direction by Samir Karnik is excellent and he make the audiences,esp the masses to go woo with a perfect mix of Masala-action,comedy,romance,songs and all..Few let-backs of the movie are a slow first half,average editing and exaggerated fights.

Music by a bunch of music directors,like Rdb,Anu Malik and Rahul Seth suits the movies theme well and entertains the audience;esp the title song and the songs Charha De Rang and Sau Baar,which are choreographed equally well.

In a nutshell this is an entertaining Masala movie-exploring the flavors of the true Indian cinema integrated with drama,emotions and humor,recalling the good old days of Bollywood.

Ma rating:8.5/10
