Lage Raho Munnabhai

Subah hogayi Maaamu..

Good morrrniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing!!!

Welcome to Gandhigiri, the opposite of dadagiri.

Lage Raho Munnabhai is, like its predecessor, a feel-good movie with a message; a movie with Sunil Dutt and Arshad Warshi in the role of their lifetimes; a movie with perfect comic timing; a movie with bindaas entertainment; a movie which will keep you laughing almost from start till end; a movie with genuine, everlasting comedy; a movie which you can watch umpteen number of times.

Apna Munna and Circuit are back, in a completely different scenario, working as con-men for Lucky Singh (Boman Irani in a completely different role), a sardarji builder.

Munna is fida over the voice of RJ Jhanvi (Vidya Balan). Jhanvi conducts a contest on Gandhi, the winner getting a chance to meet her; and Munna wins it (guess how?? 😉 ). Jhanvi believes him to be Professor Murali Prasad. She asks him to give a lecture on Gandhi in her house – II Innings, where her grandfather’s friends live with them. Munna is forced to research about Gandhi. It is then that Munnabhai meets Mahatma Gandhi.

Life seems to be going Munna’s way but after some time, problems galore arise in Munna’s life. He gives up dadagiri and picks up Gandhigiri. The film then shows how there is a solution for every problem in Gandhigiri.

Sanju Dada and Arshad are perfectly suited to the roles. There can be no other Munna and Circuit! Vidya Balan has got screen presence and is vivacious. She suits the role well and has done a good job. She has a bright future and hopefully she will keep getting good roles. Boman Irani has got a different role and has done justice to his role (I miss Dr. Asthana 😦 ).

The music is ok. It suits the film well. Pal Pal Pal is a beautiful song.

The script, dialogues and direction is fantastic. Hats off to Rajkumar Hirani – for recreating the magic. It isn’t an easy job to make a sequel live up to its hype and he has successfully achieved it!!

Though it is tough to compare the 2 movies, I will be prejudiced towards Munnabhai MBBS as I have watched it many times. Dr. Asthana’s character is hard to recreate ;). Maybe if I watch Lage Raho Munnabhai few more times I will change my opinion.

Anyway, this movie is definitely good and is definitely going to be a super hit. I am waiting to know if Hirani is preparing for another sequel. Will he be able to create another script as good as this one???? I hope he does.

As for now, I am thinking of watching the movie again 😀 .
