Beginning the movie with the clips of good old bollywood movies that shows separated brothers and finally a happy family together, Director Samir Karnik makes no pretensions of making an intelligent movie but a rehashed story told million times but served in the Deol way.
Paramveer Singh Dhillon is an NRI living with his mother, a chaste Hindi speaking firangi wife and two kids. His father had separated from them years back along with 2 year old the younger kid and are in India. Paramveer searches for them and comes to know the con father-son duo are in Benares now. So he sets foot in India and bumps into them. The story takes a nonsensical laughter course from here along with a little dose of sentiments. A love story between Gajodhar (Bobby Deol) and a sardarni, Saheba (Kulraj Kaur Randhawa) guarded by 5 fierce Punjabi brothers. The brothers coming to know the love story take back their sister to Punjab and the story shifts to the fields of Punjab. After a round of nonsensical tamasha, songs and fights they lived happily ever after.
Bollywood churns many non-nonsensical movies but few manages to keep you engaged. YPD belongs to the lucky few. Throughout the movie, the Deols manage to keep you glued and enjoy the movie. Mind you its not an easy task but the Deols lead by still energetic Deol Sr and the Iron man Sunny Deol pull the coup. Even if Bobby is the one who manages to romance on-screen its his brother and father who holds the audience. The climax fight is as silly and idiotic it could get but you can’t stop laughing and enjoying it. You have fun, you have item songs, you have sentiments, you have the typical deol swearings, you have comical fights and you have an entertainer in YPD.
GingerChai Verdict: Yamla Pagla Deewana – one time watch that entertains you in most parts, Jats the way, the Deol ve.
