Movie Review: Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se – This One Broke My Heart!!


Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se is all about an Ayurvedic medicine named as Vajrakawach. Vaidya Puran (Sunny Deol) is an Ayurveda practitioner whose prized possession is a magic formula called Vajra Kawach, which was invented by his forefathers. A cure for pimples to impotency, the medicine soon catches the eye of a pharma giant who wants to attain the formula by hook or crook and they try to decode the formula of Vajrakawach for their own profit.

Kaala (Bobby Deol) is Vaidya Puran’s brother who dreams of a high life in Canada and is looking out for his dream girl. In of this, walks in Cheeku (Kirti Kharbanda), an MBBS student who comes to Punjab to train under Pooran. As expected, Kaala falls in love with her. Cheeku seduces Kaala, and steals the formula for Marfatia, who promptly patents the medicine and sends Puran a notice.

This is when Parmar (Dharmendra), who happens to be a lawyer and is living unlawfully in Pooran and Kaala’s house comes into action. He represents Puran and Kaala in court. What follows is what makes up for the rest of the film.

What is disappointing is the fact that the film has such incredible talent, but thanks to the juvenile script and sloppy screenplay, that all the efforts have gone waste. Thanks to the Deol’s we have Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Rekha making a fleeting appearance, but this too does not help the film.

For me, it was heartbreaking to see a talent like Dharmendra being treated so shabbily on screen. A charming personality like him loses track thanks to the way his character shapes up. Halfway into the film, he is lost and I do not even want to talk about both Sunny and Bobby.

All in all, Yamla Pagla Deewana (2011) was hilarious, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 (2013) was a dud and now Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se is a disaster. Do not watch this film if you are a Dharmendra fan because just like me, you will also feel sad and heartbroken post seeing this one.

Rating: One And A Half
