Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is one of those rare films that made me wonder why it was made at all.Read more
I was puzzled beyond words, when this one was announced. Enough Said.

You know what the word is about sequels? The one that they are worse than the first in the series. Well, we know what the verdict on Yamla Pagla Deewana was. All we can say is Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 stays true to the genre, "sequels".
The performances are the same brand of loud and over-the-top, good enough to once again make the actors look like fools prancing around. Once again, heart goes out for Anupam Kher and this time even Annu Kapoor who are reduced to doing such roles. Interestingly, Sunny Deol is the one who gives it his all and tries to pull the film along.
As far as the action and comedy go, I have no clue who the action would excite and who would laugh at the jokes or get excited. There is always that element of laughing at, "so silly that you cannot but laugh" in films of this type. Fortunately or unfortunately, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 has that element, but it wanes in about two and a half minutes.
While watching the film, the only thing I was cringing at was the thought that there might be a Yamla Pagla Deewana 3. There is a Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, right? What is going to stop a third one from coming along? shudder

So-So, Movie Talkies : ...Notwithstanding the magnificent screen presence of the Deols, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 does leave a lot to be desired as far as the 'entertainment' quotient is concerned. ... full review
Thumbs down, by Deepa Gahlot, cinemaah : ...Dharmendra’s legend status gets him by even in a silly film, otherwise the only bearable factor here is Sunny Deol, who brings some semblance of sanity to the proceedings, even though he is well past the age to be playing the guy who turns shy and stuttering in the presence of a woman.... full review
Thumbs down, by Rachit Gupta, Filmfare : ...Amidst all its blunder and mess, YPD2 gets two things right. The first is Sunny Deol’s performance....The other good thing is the use of a painting as a humour motif. ... full review
Thumbs down, by Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times : ...Even the collective charm of the Deols can’t make this drivel palatable. It’s exhausting, loud and so cheerfully moronic that it hurts.... full review
Thumbs down, by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror : ...I liked that Sunny Deol was briefed differently from the rest and was acting with the conviction like he was in a different movie, I liked that the film was set in Scotland but only the first ten seconds looked like it. ... full review
