Deols are Back: Yamla Pagla Deewana
The Deols are back and will be seen together very soon. All three of them – papa Dharmendra and sons Sunny and Bobby – were earlier in a movie called Apne and now they are working on another movie.
The film is Samir Karnik’s Yamla Pagla Deewana, which will be shot starting in April. The name might suggest there is plenty of action in the movie, but it is actually a comedy. Bollywood movies today, with their focus on family and light romance, isn’t as friendly to the Deol’s dhishoom-bhishoom style as it was a decade ago, but they are going to make a go of it with this offbeat film.
Though Dharmendra is an action hero, he was one of Bollywood’s finest comic heroes as well, with stellar performances in Chupke Chupke and Sholay.
“The film is about Sunny’s journey into his past and into a culture that he had left behind. We will shoot in Varanasi in April,” says Karnik.
The movie is to be released on Christmas eve, which might give it a safe opening given that Aamir, who also releases on that day, has no film scheduled for release this year.
Sunny says about the movie:
Yamla Pagla Deewana is a family film but it’s different from our last project Apne which was family drama whereas Yamala Pagla Deewana is out-and-out comedy film with a family touch. I am playing the Canadian character that later on comes to know about his family in India and how I search them out.
