Munnabhai, our local Bombay goon, and his reliable buddy, Circuit are back! Munna is in love with the voice of popular Radio Jockey Jhanvi. Her effervescent greeting of "Good Morrrning Mumbai" on her daily radio show makes Munna's heart skip a beat each time he listens to her. Life is beautiful for Munna--his "dadagiri" business is flourishing, he listens besottedly to the radio for hours every day, he dreams of marrying Jhanvi. There is just one "minor" problem. Jhanvi thinks Munna is a "Professor of History." And in all her innocence, Jhani even invites Munna to give a history lecture to her family. Poor Munna! What should he do?! As Munna tries to sort of this "minor" entanglement in his otherwise perfect life, Circuit comes up with a bright solution. And then, the most unusual thing occurs in Munna's life. What happens when the 'Present' meets the 'Past'? What happens when our very own "Professor of History" encounters a 'Figure from History'? [] One of the biggest hits in India in 2006, this award winning movie has had a strong cultural impact with its comedic popularization of "Gandhigiri".

Sponsored by MISTI (MIT India). English subtitles.

Lage Raho Munnabhai makes you laugh, makes you cry and, parallel to all the entertainment, it gives a message that sticks in the mind. To say it in Munnabhai's lingo -- it creates "chemical locha" in the brain.
