Yamla Pagla Deewana 2- Movie Review


yamla-pagla-deewana-2 posterI’ve seen Yamla Pagla Deewana before this and I knew exactly what I was going for. Only, I didn’t think it was going to be so bad! Well, here’s my review

Dharam (Dharmendra) and his notorious son Gajodhar (Bobby Deol) are busy fleecing people in Varanasi as ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana Baba’. They come across a super rich man who has a daughter he wants to marry off in London. Their plan is to go to London and get Bobby married to the rich man’s daughter (Neha Sharma). Well mannered and decent Paramveer (Sunny Deol) turns out to be the architect to change the look of the club the rich man owns. Unfortunately, Paramveer is Dharam’s first son.

I don’t know why this film was made in the first place. Bad story, bad screenplay, bad direction are reasons enough to make this is flop film already! What’s the point in spending money on costumes, hair, make up, actors, etc.? The story by Lynda Deol is written so badly that there’s barely any scope for it to do well as a film. For instance, there’s an orangutan and sumo wrestlers to add humour because Johnny Lever and Anupam Kher who are meant to do comedy in the film just got offered the worst roles of their lives! Please notice both of them. You will agree that their roles are not only pointless but also absolutely ridiculous and not funny at all!

The good thing is that they’ve shot in Scotland and UK and there are some pretty visuals. The cinematographer has captured it all well. I also think the background score by Raju Singh is very good although the music is a letdown.

I wouldn’t boast about the performances because there’s not much to really point out except the fact that it’s always nice to see Dharmendra on screen. He’s a good looking man at his age and tries his best to look and act cool. There was barely any scope to act in this film anyway. Bobby Deol is subtle and good. He’s actually too cool for the film. The sardar look really suits Sunny Deol and even though I can’t say too much about his acting, he looks rather dashing and it’s nice to see him do action scenes with his ‘angry man face’. Anupam Kher and Johnny Lever as I said have wasted their time and done the worst roles of their lives. Neha Sharma and Kristina Akheeva look pretty and that’s that.

As a film Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is worse than the first part and totally a time waste! Not entertaining at all!

Ajab Gazabb Love- Movie Review


Good music, choreography, styling and performances with a few funny scenes but weak story and screenplay make it a ‘watch- at- home- if- you’re- bored’ kind of movie.

Crook- Movie Review


My brother happens to be an Emraan Hashmi fan because of which I was treated to watch this stupid movie! Uhhhmmmm….well, let me just get on with the review!

The main story revolves around all those “racism” incidents that have taken place in the recent past in Australia and how many Indians and Pakistanis have been victims of that. And of course, there’s a love triangle too (not surprising, considering the Serial Kisser is the lead actor).

The film is about 2 hrs long and when I say long, I mean it! Waise toh Emraan Hashmi is a decent actor and looks pretty good but somehow this movie just didn’t click! Jannat was comparatively better. The new actress Neha Sharma looks pretty and her acting was ok. The girl who played the Aussie stripper was there just to add some “sex appeal” to the movie. Unfortunately, that lacked too! The story was just too predictable and there was nothing to look forward to. I didn’t see myself reacting to any of the scenes or dialogues. I usually do! But I like whoever’s done Emraan Hashmi’s styling. His clothes look fab and his hairstyle really suits him!

The music is pretty good too, except for a few songs. The problem was that there were too many songs in the movie, that too full length!

So, according to me, this movie was a complete waste of time and money (for my brother). Please avoid watching this one!
