Movie goers’ people can see the whole Deol family coming together once again after the success of Apne back in 2007. Legendary Bollywood actor, Dharmendra, and his two sons Sunny and Bobby Deol are the main attraction of this film.

The story of Yamla Pagla Deewana tells the story of a man who is searching his family that got separated from him. Paramveer Singh Dhillon played by Sunny Deol is an honest NRI working as a bank loan recovery agent in Vancouver, Canada. He lives with his mother, his Canadian wife Mary and two sons.

When his mother decided to give divorce to her husband because of their personal problems, one night suddenly her husband took the younger son and disappeared. To find his father and younger brother, Paramveer Singh Dhillon decided to go back to India.

Both father and younger son live in Banaras and they are biggest con-men here. They make people fool and take the advantage of their foolishness. Dharam has been adored by women of his age because of his good personality and style, but he doesn’t believe in love. His younger son, Gajodhar played by Bobby Deol has same habits like his father but he gets nervous in the company of women.

It will be funny to see that how this family comes together through comedy of errors.

The music of this film is composed by Pyarelal, RDB, Nouman Javaid, Anu Malik, Sandesh Shandilya, Rahul Seth, and Sanjoy Chowdhary.

The interesting news is that Dharmendra has written one of the songs of this film. It is yet to be known which one he has written.
