Lage Raho Munnabhai
Usually, a funny movie has only one kind of humour. It could be pranks, toilet humor, irony or even the Jeeves kind (i do not get PGW humour).
Here is one movie that has it all, and drivs home the timeless message of satya & ahimsa without being stuffy and preachy. One begins to wonder if Bapu could actually do this, it just might work! The buy-in Lage Raho successfully creates is something i didnt experience in movies like Lagaan and closer home, Pithamagan. The movie invades your thoughts like a pin going into a ripe banana.
Those who are wondering why the title of the post, I just feel that given Kamal’s conflicted views on Bapu (as expressed by Saket Ram in Hey Ram), it is improbable that he will remake this vehicle of Gandhian values. Even in Hey Ram, Saket Ram actually goes to the extent of preparing to assasinate Bapu before eventually deciding to surrender. Even Saket Ram’s change of heart is not clearly explained, one assumes that it happened because of Amjad’s death.
So, what do you think? Will Kamal remake Lage Raho Munnabhai?
