Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama (2 Stars)
YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA-2 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.
Gayatri Sankar, Zee News (2 Stars)
Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 has action aplenty, but terribly fails to impress. Even Einstein (the orangutan) fails to cast his charm.
Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV (1 And Half Stars)
Like all Indian films these days, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 starts with a disclaimer asserting that no animals were hurt during the shoot. Isn't the poor orangutan an animal? It must be terribly 'hurt' at being treated with such disdain by mankind.
Mohar Basu, Koimoi (2 Stars)
Samir Karnik's YPD was an outright entertainer. But with this one, Sangeeth Sivan uses the same formula and does nothing extraordinary with it. The slapstick comedy along with typical Punjabi-burrrah-action fails to leave any impression at all.
Dhiren Trivedi, Bollywood Life (3 Stars)
On the whole, YPD2 is a fun-filled popcorn entertainer that provides double the mazaa, double the fun, double the treat and, of course, triple the Deols! So go catch this crazy, action packed, mischievous ride.
Oneindia (2 Stars)
Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 boasts of some hilarious moments. But, on the whole, things go overboard and a few cheesy, meaningless dialogues tend to shatter all your high expectations.
Gaurav Malani, The Times Of India
If the thought of watching Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol in the same frame is the reason why you are looking forward to this film, you are strongly recommended to watch the first part instead. Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is not half as funny as its prequel!
