YPD is about Sunny Paaji's journey to find and win back his long lost Father and Brother. Dharam and Bobby, are con men in Banaras and pull off stupid capers periodically. They dance, they drink and womanise. Sunny Paaji on the other hand is an NRI from Caneda! But beware, he is superhuman. He can blow your brains out with a shriek and bend iron rods with his shoulders. Dharam refuses to recognize Sunny but Bobby recruits him into the gang, seeing his inhuman strength! Later Bobby falls in love and Sunny helps him win the girl. Happy Ending.
What makes YPD lovable is the fact that the Deol unabashedly spoof themselves. While Dharam and Sunny bash goons, Bobby romances. And the comedy, though stupid at times, is clean. It's unlimited buffoonery. And Sunny Paaji's goofy charm works big time. Dharam was always good at comedy and returns in top form. But Bobby is the real loose end. He tries hard but falls flat on his face in every scene. Bobby's heroin has precious little to do, except look decent!
The first half of the movie is laborious. It's just Sunny Paaji's strength that carries you to the second half. And then starts the mayhem. We reach Punjab and Anupam Kher arrives with his bunch of sturdy brothers and 1 corny sister. Anupam Kher completely rocks as the gun trotting Big brother. Mukul Dev, as the drunk big brother, is awesome and Sucheta Khanna ( as the Heroin's sister) is plain hilarious.
Do not enter the theater with any preconceived notions and you will definitely have fun. There are enough laugh-out-loud moments in the second half to overpower the gloom of the first. Also, Sunny Paaji is fantabulous. He looks good as a Serd and smashes the pulp out of the goons with unimaginable ease. Watch it just for him, I say. Go on, coz Sardaaraney Chak Ditta!
