Lage raho Munnabhai... seriously !

There are prob'ly hundreds of posts with reviews about this movie., so., do we need another one ? NO we don't., I'm just here to give my take on this movie. Well., b4 the original munnabhai was out., I didnt even bother to watch the promos, ruling off this movie as just another typical tapori movie. Curiosity got the better of me and I did watch this movie and I'm glad I'm a curious guy.

The best part about this movie, or both the movies to me is the concept of using a mumbai bhai to teach us, 'the society' ., a few lessons that we usually wud yawn at or turn away 4m. Brilliant ! The first movie tries to teache so many small but important lessons like respecting every body as a human no matter what they are., trust and honesty with our loved ones., that every relation needs respect be it with family or friends., that it takes gutts to apologize and my fav : it doesnt hurt to bend the rules to get something really good that you want as long as you're not breaking them. Munnabhai can be really be turned into a sequence of movies to try n remind of ppl of these small lessons that make life a lil better !

Gandhi's principles would be.., i donno, wat's the word..,a misfit perhaps ., in today's world. It prob'ly not as efficient at getting things done as in the movie., but atleast everybody feels it's pssbl after watchin the movie. Now., that., is putting to good use the power of movie magic and popularity and admiration the stars hav from the public. Sounds a lil' crazy but I guess if anybody or anything has the power to get some common sense or nonsense into somebody's head., it's the movies !

Nice blog!

Why don’t you consider writing about some of the new “India 2.0” sites that are creating a little buzz as well?

u r rite kk. I think this film create a great positive impact upon the society. Nowadays we are thinking about only ourselves. I think we all wear musk. In reality nobody cares for society or country, even me too. India is a country of Unity & diversity. But today these are became only a few meaningless words to us. We never hesitates to fight each other and ruined our wealth only want to prove that we are religious. Nowadays Karenge ya Marenge became Karenge ya Maarenge.
