Lage Raho Munna Bhai
An unplanned flick for the night show, after so much uncertainity. A movie you can walk out with a smile, or atleast with composure.
Unlike Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. this movie was a lot more mushy; pretty much all along. Almost the entire 1st half will leave you laughing off. The latter was way too mushy but did have a message and occasional humor. A movie without a message is one that I wudn't appreciate.
The movie goes bit along the lines of "A Beautiful Mind" and few sequences based on it. The romance was really really weak one. Guess you can't cover more in a 3 hour movie. Vidhya Balan's smiles and expression did their job. Not much of acting there, but she does have a magnetic charm. Remember seeing her in some ad too :-/, dun quite remember :-??. As much the oldies in the movies didn't have much role either. The movie has plenty of impractical stuff going on which has become a part and parcel of india cinema. Somehow I felt it got too mushy :(. Fortunately it was based on social message than family sentiments and such.
Circuit (Arshad Warsi) was explosive :)). The way he delivers the colloquial dialogues and their timely essence were hilarious. Sanjay was just fine, whilst 'Lucky Singh' character was brilliant esp when he gets hysterical.
Plenty of message in the movie. Enough to laugh, cry (if ur the emotional kind), enjoy and even some food for thought. Overall its a good entertainer, so grab your tickets.
