Funny in patches and billed as a Deol dhamaka, the key problem with Yamla Pagla Deewana is the same as that of many other movies where the primary attraction is the star combination: there's not enough effort put into making everything else brilliant. A story as old as the hills and scenes lifted in their entirety from a dozen past flicks may make me a little nostalgic, but it's tough to endure in a nearly 3 hour movie. If I want to watch a film about long lost families, I'd rather watch a Mahaan or Coolie. Dharmendra is far past his prime, but still the best actor of the Deol clan. Sunny is enjoyable for a change, cause though his action scenes are ridiculously stupid as always, this film at least admits and recognizes it. And Bobby, what to say there. He's tolerable, but will never amount to a brilliant actor. My favourite sequences and lines belong to Anupam Kher in this movie: I loved his play on the typical overbearing big brother, but more than that his lines in the climax action sequence were a riot.
