Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se movie review: This film is injurious to your health
Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se movie review: Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol fire their cottage industry once again with disastrous consequences for the audience.

  Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se
Director: Navaniat Singh
Cast: Dharmendra, Bobby Deol, Sunny Deol
Rating: 1/5

My lasting memory of Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se is that everybody drinks a lot – there are vodka shots, daru desi, fancy champagne, neat whiskey, liquor mixed with nariyal paani, a character who begins drinking with breakfast and another who creates a ruckus after getting drunk at 10 in the night. They should serve some in theatres too, perhaps sprinkled on your popcorn and mixed with your cola, because being soused is the only way you can survive 148-minutes of this loud, over-the-top drama.

The none-too-ambitiously named Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se is the third iteration of the cottage industry the Deols – dad Dharmendra, sons Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol – began seven years ago. The first film had charm and it was fun to watch them riffing off their famous songs and dialogues. In 2018, the jokes have worn thin. For, how many times can you clap when the same old dhai kilo ka haath is retreaded and served as a punch line?
