    Once again we get to see the Deols after Apne, which did a decent box office business. No doubt the music of 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' deserves to be in lime-light but frankly the movie itself is a onetime watch. This time the trio on the canvas of Samir Karnik, who is known for many misses like Heroes, Nannhe Jaisalmer and Vada Raha did a better job but still there are many loop-holes in his latest flick as well. The story loses momentum after half-time and gets confusing for viewers. It's a senseless comic flick in which Dharmendra plays the role of a conman. As an audience you will get to see the trio making fun of each other but the biggest problem is that the story is stretched so far that at one point of time it looks like never-ending.

    The narration could have been crispier even the gags are sporadically funny so not that appealing. Bobby Deol has long roles but he did not live upto them. One good decision taken by Samir was to pitch in five music directors. They not only gave their best but also lifted a bar for the movie. Every song comes with Punjabi flavor and honestly I loved it.

    Samir Karnik could have portrayed each character in a much better way and that would have hit the bulls eye. Even the script by Jaswinder Singh Bhath did not support the whole idea of YMG that well. Movie also introduces Kulraj Randhawa who did a decent job. Dharam Ji, India's evergreen macho man delivered his best but film-makers did not use his potential in a proper way. Sunny was the one who looked like having most fun on the sets as it was visible onscreen as well. Bobby was mainly there for songs and romantic sequences but was inexpressive at times.

    Footer: Though the movie will not be a block-buster but the tracks are already and will be heard in clubs & parties for sure.
