Yamla Pagla Deewana - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

What you see (in the promos) is what you get. Over-the-top, no-head-nor-tail, senselessness served in the name of unpretentious cinema. Sure, many from the crowd around me were laughing, hooting, and whistling their hearts out. At what though, is beyond me.

No thanks, I'm very comfortable with my sense of humor.

Plot Summary

A mother wants to run away to Canada with her two sons because she doesn't want her husband's (Dharmendra) conman ways to be followed by the kids. She manages to take only her older son because Dharmendra manages to kidnap one of his sons and turns him into a conman too. After being separated for 30 years, they are now trying to reunite.

What Worked

  • The lines said by Ajay Devgn in a voiceover, while the opening credits are on.
  • The 'ditto' dialogue.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The songs
  • Dharmendra films running in the background.
  • Johnny Lever.
  • The fake Canada 'eh?'
  • Elevator hijack - what a waste of an absolutely hilarious concept.
  • How does Sunny Deol know Kulraj's brothers want a NRI to be her groom?
