The difference between the two parts:
I went for MunnaBhai M.B.B.S.:
- Without reading any reviews
- Having seen no great hype
- Without any expectations.
I came out of the theatre adding one more movie to my all-time favourite list. A movie that made me smile and laugh over and over again. A rarity in today’s movie era
I went for Lage Raho MunnaBhai
- Without reading any reviews
- Having seen a far larger hype
- With loads of expectations

I’m not going to reveal the story of the film; if I did, I would be doing grave injustice to Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra who have come up with another masterpiece. The trailers have not given away anything and please watch the movie to find out the connection between MunnaBhai and the great Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Thumbs up to Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra for carving a special niche and I can’t wait for MunnaBhai sequels to come our way.
Sanjay Dutt charms and Arshad Warsi sails through. Arshad Warsi must be one of the best actors in the industry today when it comes to comedy and its sense of timing. He has to be! The one-liners are as memorable as part one and boy, the writers have done a great job, it’s not easy to be so witty everytime.
Vidya Balan looks beautiful and do her eyes talk! She doesn’t have much to do but she still impresses. Boman Irani plays his role to perfection and I can’t find a flaw with this man. Most of the characters from part one play out various roles and to perfection. There are a few surprises which our extremely pleasant and some are well kept secrets; and we will let them be till every one has watched the movie. But if you all know who is my current favourite then you ought to know that I was very very glad that this person had a special appearance!
The only con (if you can find one) is the music, this time there is no ‘Dekh Le’ to hit the disco scenes but the songs are situational which are built in well. One song though does leave a mark. It is not the title track or the romantic one! I’ll leave that for you all to figure out once you have seen the movie.
- Without getting too serious Lage Raho MunnaBhai makes us think
- Without sounding pretentious it manages to convince us that things can still work if we follow his teachings
- Without getting too preachy it gets the message across to a nation that has fallen asleep; that it is only a matter of self belief
I would love to list out my favourite scenes and dialogues from the movie but that would amount to spoiling your fun and I don’t want to do that. So, here is one which everyone must have seen on their TV sets. When I saw it too, I told my husband that we have to see this movie first day first show….
‘Apun ke Birthday pe bhi Dry Day ho
Nahi, Nahi, Dry Day Nahi.’
Well Munna and Circuit, Tumhare Birthday Pe Hum Log Dry Day Kaise Rakhenge?
After all we are drunk on your antics!
