Munna bhai m.b.b.s is the only movie with sanjubaba and his father sunil dutt are seen together, before this they were in the two movies called rocky and kshatriya, but they never had any scenes together, because sunil dutt died in the begining of the movie, so dutt had always wanted to work with his father at least once, it's a good thing he did right before his father died.

Munnabhai m.b.b.s was supposed to be a shahrukh khan, film shahrukh quit the movie for some reason, then the choice was ofcourse baba anyone else can do a better role then him for a gangster, Just think of shahrukh doing a role in this movie and sharing scenes with sunil dutt.

The movie is directed by rajkumar hirani, and produced by vidhu vinod chopra, who had earlier took sanjubaba in his movie mission kashmir and was a hit movie and sanjubaba gave one of his best performances. The music is by anu malik.

The movie stars, Sunil dutt, sanjaydutt, gracy singh, boman irani,arshad warsi and jimmy shergill.

The movie is about a munna (sanjaydutt) leave his village to find a job in the city, but somehow becomes a the biggest bhai in mumbai, he becomes munnabhai. Munna and his gang which includes his best friend circuit(arshad warsi) go around and solving monetary situations and disputes. One day when munna is doing his normal business, he hears some news that his father hari prasad sharma(sunil dutt) is coming to down along with his mother sawatri (rohini hattangadi). Munna gets worried, because he told family that he is a big doctor in mumbai, and has his own hospital, like usual they convert their den into a fake hospital. Munna and his friends try to play doctors when his parents arrive.

This charade doesn't last for long, because one day hari prasad sharma meets dr asthana (boman irani) has daughter name suman (gracysingh). dr. asthana and hari prasad used to be close friends in childhood. They both decide that it might be a good idea if suman and munna get married, but news reach dr asthana that munna isnot a doctor he is the biggest gunda a bhai of the city. Munna is forced to tell his parents that he isn't a doctor infront of dr. asthana, that he is a bhai.

Munna now wants to make his mother and father proud and prove asthana wrong and marry his daughter suman, he enrolls in a top medical college in where dr astahana is the dean and suman as a medical assistant. From then own munna tries to stay in college and do whatever it takes to be a doctor.

Munnabhai is a heartwarming, hilarious story of a goon's journey into the medical world, place he neither belongs to nor believes in, it's classic story and a class movie of right man in a wrong place.

Rajkumar hirani is a brilliant director, If his first directed movie is like this His second would be better then this, So the second part of munna bhai m.b.b.s is also filming now called munnabhai mmb munnbhai meets gandhi. Rajkumar hirani handles all the scenes in the movie well, especially the ending when sanjubaba reunites with his father. The scene where his parents find out that he is not a doctor. Now add rajkumar hirani into a list of good directors. Now heard this movie is going to be remade in hollywood, I don't see anyone else playing this role except rob-deniro or jamie foxx, what I heard.

The music by anumalik is great I think one of his best, munna bhai m.b.b.s is a funny and cheering song. M for master b bole bindas doctor, b bemisel actor s for shaana character , you can tell from this line that munna inside is a nice person, BUt my favorite song from the album was dekhley aankhon mein aankhen dal, which was sung by sunidhi chauhan. The dialogues by abbas tyrewala are well written.

Performancewise- Sunil dutt comes back after a long time and gives a good performance, his conscience like the pagdi on his head is spotless, imagine the heatbreak of him when he discovers his son is a tapori gunda not a doctor.

Rohni hattangadi gives her second best performance after the movie agneepath, I really like her doing mother kind of roles, Her, farida jalal and reema lagoo my favorites in maa kind of roles. Arshad warsi as circuit is his best performance so far, man this guy talks like a real tapori doesn't sound like he is acting, sounds like he's at home or with his real gang talking like this. He plays munna's right hand, whatever munna needs he provides, even a dead body. Boman irani was so annoying man I hated his performance, people liked his performance so much, but he laughed for no reason in the whole, movie what I found so annoying. Jimmy shergill is a very underrated actor, but in this movie he proves that he can act, he doesn't apear till after the second half, but he gives a solid performance, I loved the scene when he tells munna tu save him.

Shower steal none other then, baba, the title role was for shahrukh khan, but sanjay dutt was born to play this role, thought it might not be good as raghubhai from vaastav, boxer from hathyar and balu balram from khalnayak, sanju shines as the gangster who wants to be a doctor, just for his parents, what I loved about this movie. His scenes with his father are terrific, how about abhishek trying that with bachnan. I liked his emotional scenes in the movie, and his drunken scene where he tell circuit that will be a doctor. This one scene was terrific when sanju's is drunk talking with circuit this guy is trying to take off the sign from the fake hospital sanju tells him to aae sala board ko haath nahin lagane ka uspe mere baap ka naam likhela hai. Other good scene was when the janitor is moping the floor munna tells him that he works so hard but nobody gives him credit.

Sanjubaba was robbed because they gave him a comedian actor award, they presented that too him when shahrukh khan and saif ali khan were making fun of aamir khan saying that aamir khan is 5''6 in height, when sanju got up on the stage he just took the award and left didn't even say hi to both of them. This was surely a best actor award for this performance.

This movie is definetly worth a watch at anytime.
