When Dharmendra and his sons- Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol, hit the screens together (yet again) on August 31st, it was expected that they are back with a laughter riot and a treat for the audience, However, the film failed to impress the critics and audience alike. The movie earned just Rs 1.65 cr at the box office on day one and remained flat on day two as well. According to the reports in the Box Office India, Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se managed to raise Rs 1.8 cr on the second day, making its total as Rs. 3.45 cr.
On the other hand, Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer Stree also hit the screens on the same date and impressed the audience with funny one-liners and powerful performances. Stree minted Rs 6.82 crore on its first day and now the movie has crossed Rs 17 crore in just two days.
Indiatvnews.com's movie critic gave one and a half star to Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se and wrote, ''In fact, the three lead actors tried their luck at bringing back their most iconic roles in order to excite the audience but trust me, when I say, the cinema hall sat not even smiling an inch throughout the movie. While Dharmendra tried to revive his Sholay days with the same bike and persona, Sunny Deol also brought back his Gadar look thinking it will force the public to shower him with hoots and whistles''.
On the professional front, Bobby Deol was last seen in Salman Khan starrer Race 3, which failed to impress audience and critics. It was Bobby's comeback film after a long gap. Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se also stars Kriti Kharbanda as a leading lady. Recently in an interview, Kriti shared an incident when she had a vodka shot before shooting a scene with the veteran actor. The diva said that the scene required her to be high and yell at Dharmendra. She was quite nervous, hence, she took a shot of vodka before shooting it. This made the scene look more authentic, she added.
