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

A Fun Ride!
15 January 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I am energetic, happy and glad after watching 'Yamla Pagla Deewana'. Director Samir Karnik brings the 3 Deols together, with such an interesting story, that you fall in love with them.

'Yamla Pagla Deewana' is an out-and-out time-pass fare that entertains it's viewer. The First hour is good, but the Second hour is an absolute knock-out. After 'Dabangg' and 'G3', here comes an entertainer that is sure to be remembered!

The writing is spot-on, which is filled with entertaining moments and awesome one-liners. Samir Karnik's direction is perfect. Cinematography is damn good. Stunts are excellent. The soundtrack is nice.

Performance-Wise: Dharmendra, Sunny & Bobby are in terrific form. They play their parts with ease. Kulraj is decent. In the supporting cast, Anupam Kher, Mukul Dev, Sucheta Khanna, Puneet Issar and Johny Lever are simply superb. Emma Brown is passable.

On the whole, A Fun Ride that deserves a watch. Go for the Deols! Thumbs Up!
