Releasing alongside Stree is Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se. Directed by Navaniat Singh, the third installment of the Yamla Pagla Deewana franchise stars Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Shatrughan Sinha, Kriti Kharbanda, Johnny Lever, Asrani and Satish Kaushik among others. The movie also features cameo appearances by Salman Khan, Rekha, Sonakshi Sinha and Gippy Grewal.

While the first movie in the Yamla Pagla Deewana franchise raked in the moolah, the sequel Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 failed to impress critics and audience alike. Will the Deols be third time lucky?

Our verdict

Punjabis like to get soused. They eat chicken. They do bhangra. They address children as ‘puttar’. And if they happen to be the ‘papa-betas’ trio of Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby, they also star in a franchise which allows them to keep working. Gujaratis are veggie-loving, suspicious of Punjabis and other communities, and constantly saying ‘kem cho’ and ‘majaa ma’. Talk of exhausted stereotypes, and there’s your YPD 3.

Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se off to a slow start

Our verdict

In this installment, taglined ‘Phir Se’, even the half-hearted guffaws, which we managed in the first two, have dried up. The jokes are so lame that they are practically invisible. How you wish the film was too.
