‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2’ to be a roller coaster ride from commencement to conclusion. The writer runs his imagination wild and laces episodes that are wacky and ludicrous, but stretches it too much this time. The problem is that the writer tries to cram too much into one film, but the episodes lack the power to grip you. Sure, the writer and director know who the target audience is, but the fun quotient that you expect from the film is missing. To give the credit where it's due, the Deols do manage to transcend the flaws at times, but the best of actors cannot charm you non-stop if the writing is dreary and uninspiring. While the first hour of the movie lacks the punch, one hopes fervently that the post-interval portions do the trick, like the first installment did. All in all, the movie rides on the star power of the Deols and of course, its brand. That may attract the spectators initially. But, eventually, it's the content that does the talking and in this case, the lackluster script plays a spoilsport!
