Sunny Sound Pvt Ltd, Intercut Entertainment and Pen’s YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA PHIR SE is the third installment in the YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA franchise and the least best among the three. The film revolves around the Deols and Ayurveda. Puran (Sunny Deol) is an Ayurveda doctor and has an ancient medicine which is used to cure almost any kind of diseases. Pharmaceutical company owned by Mr. Marfatia (Mohan Kapoor) wants to buy the formula which is used in the priceless medicine. Puran does not want to sell it as that is his ancestral legacy and he does not want to give it in the wrong hands, people who only care of profit and all. Kala (Bobby Deol) who is good for nothing and falls in love with Chiku Patel (Kriti Kharbanda) who comes to Puran to learn Ayurveda. Parmar (Dharmendra) plays the role of a lawyer and the one who stays as tenant in Puran and Kala’s house who wants them to leave their house as he still pays only 115 rupees as rent in 2018. The film is good in parts but the jokes are clichéd and heard many times in movies before, especially in their previous films from franchise.
Technically the film is okay, cinematography by Jitan Harmeet Singh is good. Editing by Manish More is okay. Dialogues are not funny for a comedy film, should have been way better. Music is not worth mentioning. Story by Dhheraj Rattan has a lot of flaws as it does not have any memorable moment worthy of appreciation. The film is completely left on the shoulders of the Deols to lift up.
Performances wise Dharmendra Ji is good, he plays his role with full enthusiasm. Sunny Deol is good in his role, he expresses his situation very well. Bobby Deol does his bit with a same vigor and determination like he does most of his other roles in this series. Kriti Kharbanda could have been given so much more to do, she however does well.
As a director, Navaniat Singh does well technically but it let down by a off the mark script. We already know about Singh’s pedigree as a filmmaker from his hit movies in Punjab but the same touch is missing here.
At the box-office
The film has taken a shockingly slow start and will struggle.
