From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Munna Bhai is a series of Bollywood films directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vinod Chopra Productions. The first film is Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003), the second is Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006). A third film, Munnabhai Chale Amerika is still under development.

Overview

Murli Prasad Sharma (Munna Bhai) is portrayed by Sanjay Dutt. He is a "Bhai" - a leader in the Mumbai underworld. His nickname, Munna Bhai has a double meaning. It could refer to the form of "Bhai" as an honorific, as the word traditionally translates as "brother"; however, within the context of Mumbai slang, "Bhai" has also come to refer to a hoodlum.[1] His sidekick, or consigliere is Circuit (portrayed by Arshad Warsi). They both speak in Bambaiya Hindi, a dialect specific to Mumbai, India.

Munna Bhai was first introduced in the 2003 film Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. which involves his adventures as a faux-medical student, who finally tells the truth about himself and learns to help people along the way.

In the second movie, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, Munna Bhai becomes a faux-professor. He begins, thereafter to see the image of Mahatma Gandhi who persuades him to stop pretending he is a professor and who teaches him to help other people solve their problems through Gandhism, which Munna Bhai terms Gandhigiri.
