Storyline

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!!!

Goofs

During the cadaver dissection scene, the professor notes that the outer layer of skin is the epidermis and asks what the inner layer of skin is, and one student enthusiastically responds, "Hypodermis!" and the professor nods to indicate that he is correct. The hypodermis is not a layer of skin at all; it is by definition that tissue that is underneath the skin. The two layers of skin are the epidermis and the *dermis*. (The prefix "hypo-" means "below," so the "hypodermis" is that layer of tissue that is "below the dermis.") See more »

Wat a nice Bollywood piece!
14 July 2013 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

i got the chance to watch this movie couple of years back in TV, but at that time i was not into Bollywood movies. but after that i saw the ratings of this movie in IMDb and downloaded it.. wow its worth the 1gb of my bandwidth!! i don't wanna say about acting or other stuff, i am writing this review as just a movie fan...throughout the movie all i did was laughing, feeling sad or feeling happy...there are quite a lot of hilarious jokes.. and although i don't like songs playing in movies (i have to accept it and just get on with it when comes to Bollywood right ;), the songs are also nice... and there is a good life lesson too.. just give it a try, you wont regret it... 2 and a half hours of laugh!
