Yamla Pagla Deewana 2

A sequel to the 2011 hit, the film keeps the silliness of its predecessor intact. Dharam Singh (Dharmendra) and his son Gajodhar Singh (Bobby Deol) are conmen living in Varanasi, who go to great lengths to fool people in the most ridiculous manner. Dharam Singh’s other son Paramvir (Sunny Deol) is the opposite of the two and lives an honest life. This time around, the three unite when Paramvir opens up a night club called Yamla Pagla Deewana in England. As we have seen in the past, the good son tries to keep his mischievous father and brother out of trouble. The trailer promises a fun film with the real life father and sons and their crazy mindless adventures.

In this Indian love triangle set in Varanasi, Kundan (Dhanush), a simple boy, professes his love for Zoya (Sonam Kapoor), the girl he has been in love with his whole life. Zoya shares a close relationship with Kundan and indulges in harmless flirting. The first part of the trailer shows Kundan as a silly school boy mesmerised by Zoya. Later as an adult, he attempts to woo her by chasing her around (um, hello, stalker!). One day, Kundan’s life changes when the charming, aspiring politician played by Abhay Deol falls for Zoya and aims to marry her. The two young men try to out-do one another in hilarious antics and what we get is a charming desi-style romantic story with catchy tunes and a who-is-she-going-to-choose guessing game.

Starring Sonam Kapoor, Dhanush, Abhay Deol |

Sanju (Emraan Hashmi) enlists the help of two criminals to rob a bank, something he considers a big end to his career in crime. The men don face cut-outs of Bollywood actors and rob a bank. All goes well, and Sanju is tasked with hiding the money until the situation has calmed down. Three months later, when the accomplices arrive to collect their share of the booty, Sanju refuses to acknowledge them. Infuriated, the men beat Sanju up only to realise that he has indeed lost his memory in an accident. In order to protect their money, the accomplices move in with Sanju and his wife Neetu (Vidya Balan). Ghanchakkar promises a comedy with a suspense-filled plot that is bound to take the audience on a roller coaster ride.
