Editorial Reviews

Starring: SANJAY DUTT, SUNIL DUTT, ARSHAD WARSI, GRACY SINGH, BOMAN IRANI, ROHINI HATUNGADI

Synopsis: Laughter, they say, is the best medicine. Love, Munnabhai says, works even better. Who is Munnabhai? A tough as nails tapori with an unstinting heart of gold. The Bulging biceps and coarse language conceal a gentle giant who only wants to spread smiles. He hugs people, giving them 'jadu ki jhappi'. Naturally though he can barely tell a liver from a lung, yet he is the best doctor in town. Sanjay Dutt, a perfect mix of machismo, vulnerability, intensity and humor, is Munnabhai. He endears as only he can.

If you're not very familiar with Hindi cinema, the Munna Bhai films should be at the top of your list, as they introduce everything that is great about "bollywood" movies. Sanjay Dutt, who plays Munna, is a huge star in India, and this role reinvigorated his career after some rough patches in his life. His father in the film is played by his own real-life father, Sunil Dutt. The fact that Sunil Dutt would pass away two years after the release of this film lends even more poignancy to the scenes between father and son.

Munna is a lovable gangster - despite his rough profession, his heart is always in the right place and he's surrounded by a community of friends and employees who love and depend on him. Sanjay Dutt fits the role as if it were written just for him. Arshad Warsi is perfect as Munna's ever-loyal sidekick. Boman Irani is a delightful and hilarious character actor (his appearance in the second Munna Bhai film is even more hilarious than in this one).

The music is lovely and never over-the-top, and the playback singer Vinod Rathod (who sings Munna's lines) is the ideal voice for Sanjay Dutt. The film isn't simply comedy; it also offers a social critique of both the education and health care system in India. It might remind American audiences of the movie "Patch Adams", except this one is much better.

There are some aspects which non-Indian audiences might find tricky. Some of the comedy is based on language - Munna and his friends speak a sort of low-brow slang - which can't come through in the subtitles very well. Also, the constant references to "bro" (the translation for "bhai", as in Munna Bhai) might seem odd to English speakers, but that's because we don't use the word "brother" in the same way that it's used in Hindi. There are certain catchphrases (like Munna and Circuit's repeated "no tension!") which might not be as funny if you don't pick up on them in the spoken dialogue.

Like most Bollywood products, watching this movie requires a large investment of your time (2 hrs 30 mins+). It's well worth it. There's wonderful character development here. As a result, we see and believe Sanjay Dutt's "Munna Bhai" as a hulking, swaggering 'brother gangster' who is also capable of great acts of passion and caring. Dispensing 'magic hugs' and fully engaging _everyone_ regardless of their station in life, Dutt's character sets out on a circuitous and indescribable path from gangster to doctor.

For Dutt, the gangster role here is a case of art imitating life (thank you, Harkanwar Anand, for your review which encouraged me to look up the details of Dutt's life...wow). He's got great support from some wonderful castmates. I loved Boman Irani's performance as Dr. J. C. Asthana. He's brilliant - alternatively stern and commanding, then broadly comedic. Whether it's the translation or not, he also delivers some great officious lines like delivering Dutt his "rustication letter." That sent me scrambling to the dictionary. Excellent.

Kudos also to Arshad Warsi for his portrayal of Munna Bhai's henchman 'Circuit.' Whether musically menacing shakedown victims with a switchblade or listening to Dutt unload his dreams and fears on the shore each night, his portrayal adds rich layers to Dutt's character.

Don't give up early on this movie - the first five minutes is very slapstick-y, but after that it settles into a very good groove. Your appreciation for it will grow as the movie goes on. At the end, my wife and I looked at each other and expressed the same thought: "Wow, what a _great_ movie!" It will touch you.

[NOTE: I see reports that Mira Nair has bought the US rights to Munna Bhai and is planning a release called 'Gangster M.D.

I love the compassion that was demonstrated in this film. While it is filled with pranks and audacious events, the compassion and love flows forward. A genuine feel good movie.

Just received the genuine dvd direct from EROS
Amazon.com does not even offer this dvd until the release date July 17, so how can they be selling bootleg dvds? It is also being sold by marketplace sellers but those do not come from Amazon.com.
