Yamla Pagla Deewana: An enjoyable no-brainer

IIPM: What is E-PAT?

The Deol deal

The Deols reunite for a film that is all about them. Yamla Pagla DeewanaYamla Pagla Deewana is a part self-indulgent part self-deprecating effort from the trio, which aims to entertain from the beginning to the finish. The brothers in real life play bros on-screen too but they get separated when their con-man father Dharam (also their real life father Dharmendra) takes his younger son Gajodhar (Bobby Deol) and leaves their mother (Nafisa Ali). Twenty years later, the mother and elder son Paramveer (Sunny Deol) are settled in Canada, but when they hear about Dharam’s whereabouts, Paramveer travels to India to find his long-lost father and brother. Conveniently, Gajodhar is the first person he meets in Benaras, and while Dharam refuses to acknowledge Paramveer as his son, he does allow him to tag along with them once they witness his brute strength. The plot then focuses on Gajodhar’s romance with Saheba (Kulraj Randhawa), and after her five brothers assault Gajodhar and take the girl home, the trio, in DDLJ fashion, follow her to Punjab.

The brothers know what they’re good at, and so while Bobby sticks to romance, Sunny spoofs several of his own action sequences. Dharamendra as the tottering conman is good, but this is no where close to any of his best performances. Where the film provides us with several LOL moments, it also has a lot going against it. The Gajodhar-Saheba romance is a drag, the music is mostly terrible, and a lot of gags fall flat in the face. Yet, Yamla Pagla Deewana is good family fare, as long as you don’t reason too much about the happenings.
