The story of six young Indians who assist an English Woman to film a documentary on the extremist freedom fighters from their past, and the events that lead them to relive the long forgotten saga of freedom.
In India gangsters are called Bhai (brothers). One such Bhai is Munna, who is feared by everyone in Mumbai, a big city in India. He cons his village-based parents into believing that he is a doctor. He gets a shock when he finds out that they are coming to verify for themselves. So he transforms a rooming shanty house into a makeshift hospital, populated by patients, people he beats up. His parents arrive, are pleased, and happy that their son is well settled. They would like him to get married to a doctor's daughter. The marriage is arranged, but before the engagement, the bride's father finds out the truth about Munna, and cancels the marriage. Munna's humiliated parents see the truth for themselves, and hurt, they return home, leaving Munna with a strong desire to hurt the doctor - and force him to let his daughter get married to him - even if it means getting admitted in the medical college - with forged documents!!!

Nawazuddin Siddiqui who was a struggler back then plays the role of a pickpocket who robs Sunil Dutt's person at the station. See more »
In the scene where a surgeon is demonstrating the dissection of a cadaver and Munna tries to look over his shoulder there is a difference in position of actors in the frontal and side-on shots. Swamy who is seen immediately next to the surgeon on the surgeon's right in the frontal shot, is seen trying to pop his head over the crowd directly behind (and at some distance from) the surgeon in the side-on shot alternatively.

[Circuit accompanies Munnabhai to his college room]
What the...? It ends almost right where it begins!
Murli Prasad Sharma:
Circuit, do you know why God sent me to this college?
God certainly never told me!
Murli Prasad Sharma:
Because he wants me to settle a score with the man who made my father cry!
Okay, if it's settled with God, all right!

When I went to watch the movie I was not so sure on how well the director could handle a comedy ( He is not exactly known for that!), BUT 10 minutes into the show and all my doubts were dispelled! This is a superb comedy, and you should watch it for Arshad Warsi's acting, if not anything else. 8/10
