Read my previous review ’Larna Mana Hai’ before this one to get a clear idea of the sequel.

[[Scene 1]]

Mental engineering college and Institution, Bandra. After Johar has been proved abnormal by Mallika & his Chap, he loses mental balance. To keep his word of challenging Chap, he visits doc for psychiatric help.

Johar: Hello doctor, actually my problem is that by Chap, I was accused to be a gay indec...

Munna: Haan yes yes. How do you do? (aside to Circuit) Arre ye sala angrezi mein kaayko mach-mach kar rela hai yaar? Apne to kuch palle hi nahi parela hai maloom.

Circuit: Bhai koi tension nahi hai, main dekhta hai na isko. (to Johar) Hindi you speak, hindi?

Johar: Ya I have made many Hindi tearjerkers, but the response to most of them, though hits, was so appalling that I forgot my Hindi as well. Bes...

Circuit: Bhai main jaake koi English-speaking aadmi ko utha laata hoon, tab tak aap sambhalo isko. Coffee you drink na. I bring for you, wait wait.(Leaves)

Johar: (hands on cheek, reflecting on the old days) I too made people drink coffee on my show ’Koffee with Karan’. Pity it didn’t run well and I’d to repeat celebrities before bringing it to a close.

Munna: Achcha Karan bhai, this Munnabhai MBBS film, you seen?

Johar: Oh yes I have seen the film. I would die to make such an amazing one. Much different from the same types of films that I make, it came like a whiff of fresh air. The story about a social worker Murali Prasad (Sanjay Dutt) wanting to be a doctor to satisfy the feelings of his real-cum-reel life father (Sunil Dutt) was not only original, but also well-handled. Between his way to doc-dom, he comes across many hurdles like the Dean of the college (Boman Irani) who has refused to accept him as a prospective-groom to her daughter Chinki (Gracy Singh). Also, he treats people with a human care, unlike my films where tears heal all wounds. He gives everybody a dose of hug called jadoo ki jhappi, plays with patients, dances with them and other stuff that never failed to entertain me. Finally, the dad and son unite so that...

Circuit: Bhai ye rahi coffee. Apun ne to pura Mumbai chaan maara, lekin sab medical students Delhi log ke saath strike par gayele hai.

Munna: To koi mila nahin kya tere ko?

Circuit: Haan mila hai na bhai. Bahar khara hai. Imported maal hai ekdum. Naya naya aaya tha, koi jagah khoj raha tha. Main chaddar mein lapet ke le aaya.

(drags the man along) Yeh dekhiye bhai!

Man: (from within) You guys will have to pay for this. I have high powers and you won’t be spared I swear.

Man removes the sack. Johar gets a shock, stands up, and looks at him, stunned.


[[Scene 2]]

Same institution. The man smiles at Johar. He’s Greg Chappell.

Chap: Oh boy! You here too. So wassup? Left SRK and now behind these guys here?

Munna: Aye foreign machine, kya bola re tu isko?

Johar: Forget it! I am leaving from here..

Circuit: Ay shaane, chal.. Yahan se bhai ke razamandi ke bina jo uthta hai na, woh to uth jaata hai.

Chap: Well said young man. Though this is not Sunny Deol, but your face resembles Murali Prasad of an Indian film Munnabhai. I tell you, he really performed extremely well in the movie. Though the guy Sanjay has capped the role of a don in n no. of films in the past, this one was truly a standout portrayal. And you, other guy, your face resembles his sidekick Arshad Warsi’s. I’ve heard the movie re-established him in the industry. Anyways he was riveting. His comic timing was perfect, and he underplayed his role to perfection. He stood out in all the scenes despite the presence of other actors.

Karan: Hey Munna, before you ask what he said, he commented on the cast. But the one who calls me a gay, is himself so much occupied with Rahul and the boys, that he forgot to mention the excellent touch of the Dean given by Boman Irani, which also got him a foothold in Bollywood. Tremendous an actor as he is, he made us all laugh with his laughter theory. Gracy Singh in a short role provides a memorable performance, while the legendary Sunil Dutt (God bless his soul!) was outstanding in a cameo. So was Jimmy Sheirgill.

Munna: Aye vantar log, kya pak raha hai tum dono ke bich mein haan? Yaar kaayko jhagarta hai tumlog? Chalo ek kahani suno. Yeh Munnabhai picture hai na, apun ne pehle uske director RKH se baat ki. Mere ko bolta tha bhai logo pe picture banani hai. Inkar karne par usne mujhe picture ka screenplay sunaya. Itna mast tha ki apun sun ke udhar-ich ro para.

Johar: (seeing Munna, starts crying) Yes I understand. The emotional scenes were heart-rending. Hardly there has been any movie where comedy has been blended with an emotional theme to such perfection. If the comic ones tickle your funny bone and you burst into peels of laughter, the tender ones will make you cry buckets of tears. Ok fine, I exaggerated it. May not be buckets! RKH’s work is top-notch as a first-timer.

Chap: And boy, I liked the scene where this Munna plays carrom in the hospital with the old man. Also the one where he realizes that not everything can be done so easily - when the patient Jimmy dies. I also liked it because the first event can be compared to playing cricket, while the second would count to Ganguly retiring from the team. Hahaha! Also, in the beginning when the brother is exposed in front of his parents, is engaging. Dialogues by Abbas Tyrewala are witty and extraordinary, and one of the major cause which uplifts the film a great deal.

Circuit: Ye tapodi log music ke baare mein kuch bolte hi nahi hai bhai.

Karan: Aah ok. Anu Malik’s music fitted the concept like a glove. While ’Chanda mama’ and the title track were tapodi kinds tracks, ’Chhan Chhan’, the romantic one stole the show. I’d like to start the promotion of my next with such a song. Pradeep Sarkar’s editing was sharp too. Though the film was lengthy, boredom was kept at bay. Binod Pradhan’s cinematography was good too. The locales of the institute, so-called house-hospital and the basti were well shot.

Munna: Arre Mamu, bole to mast hai music re. Bahut khush hua apun tere se. I give your case. Romantic songs you like. So you hetero and no gay. Go and enjoy with anybody, koi tension nahi hai.

Circuit: Sahi hai bhai. Picture ka bhi to finally Happy Ending hua tha na. Chal jaa, picture dekhne ka, romance karne ka, Chap ke saath cricket khelne ka, shopping karne ka, social work karne ka.. sab kuch karne ka, bhai ke kaam ko chhod ke. Hehehhe.

Chap: You loafers always talk that way. But Johar, I challenge you for a cricket match. Mallika proved you a gay, while these guys proved me one. Whoever loses the match is it. Agreed? Haai dum?

Tum kahan ko chale maamu?? Milte hai Part 3 mein!
