Star Rating: 2/5 (Two Stars)
The men who personify Macho are back with comic stride all over again. Yamla Pagla Deewana that had its audiences rolling in laughter is back with its sequel. The humorous gusto of the film is power packed even this time. The film’s music is a rollicking ride mostly laced with typically Punjabi dhol tashe. Not a scintillating piece of work, the film boasts its mediocrity with epic desi tadka that deserves just a casual listen.
Main Taan Aidaan Hi Nachna – Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 Music Review
Made on the base of techno beats, this track has the catchiest tinge to it. Singers Diljit Dosanjh and Sachin Gupta does a good job, but the song’s best part is where Dharamendra joins the leagues of singer to catapult the film’s energy to an escalated level.
Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 Title Track – Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 Music Review
The title track of the film is teamed with good music and apt lyrics that retains the fun characteristic all through. Sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Sukhwinder Singh, the male voices clearly overshadows the female’s. The song has a moderate appeal. The only thing that makes up for it, is its worthy Punjabi lyrics, that holds the song’s tempo!
Changli Hai Changli – Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 Music Review
Mika Singh seems to personify the cheapster romeo image impeccably. Anuja Chauhan would however be offended with the lyricist of this song, who has downed the standard of the language, Hinglish, she has meticulously cultivated. A very energetic feat, this song doesn’t have a very prolonged shelf life.
Suit Tera Laal Rang Da – Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 Music Review
Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan together render to this track their unsurpassable energy. With vigorous proceedings, this song merges in with the album’s Punjabi flavor well. It lacks in melody but survives for being interesting!
Jatt Yamla Pagla Ho Gaya – Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 Music Review
With its predecessor being quite a beautiful effort, this song is tediously repetitive! Sung by Mika and Suzanne D’Mello, this song is a cut-copy-paste replica of the title track of the album.
The Last Word – Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 Music Review
When the prequel film released, the Punjabi season was in its full bloom and the desi Sara tadka was a rage. Years later, this album fails to evoke the same reaction. Sharib-Toshi duo has done a consistent job yet there is nothing refreshing about the album. Mostly dull, there is a clear lack of vision and creativity in the album which sounds largely flat. Some experimentation with the beats and blending different tones would have done the album some good. I am sticking to a 2 on 5 for the album. Give it a hear only for Main Ta Ainda Hi Nachna!
