Director: Sangeeth Sivan
What’s Good: Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is loaded with excerpts from Dabangg Khan’s demeanor and mannerisms. Plus, there is an interesting Orangutan’s revelry which does tickle you right!
What’s Bad: With the main con story diversifying into too many sub plots, this one is an extremely tedious.
Loo break: Must Take.
Watch or Not?: YPD 2 is nothing like its prequel. In keeping with its earlier theme, the film fails to spark off a rollicking camaraderie like its last part. The beating around the bush excitement makes it feel too over stretched! Barely managing to squeeze out a few laughs, YPD 2 in the end is an unimpressive slackened show. Do give this one a miss, it is for the better!
Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 Review: Script Analysis
The buffoonery has been tackled without an aorta of logic. The film despite the potential of having you rolling with laughter challenges your gray matter too strongly at places. Tackily done rude humor and script that conspicuously lacks lucid flavor, YPD 2 loses its novelty by trying too hard to make you laugh. Be it an Orangutan’s masterpiece or Bobby’s illiterate comments on Leonardo Da Vinci, the film hits your funny bones at the wrong places! The narrative refusing to soar at any point in the film, even in the climax, there is no captivating element in this story, making it nothing above crass!
The unconvincing and dragging narrative, though served with judicious dosages of action and humor fails to evoke anything substantial in the audiences. Sunny Deol as the Punjabi version of Rajinikanth is the only satiating element of the film! The antics are indigestibly over the top and fail to keep the audiences engrossed!
I am going with a 2 on 5 for this one. Any day the prequel is a better version and sadly this film couldn’t retain any good from its last edition.
Not Deol’ed out this time!
