The movie Kamal cannot remake

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?

  3. Tamizhan,
    1) KAMAL did not remake VR MBBS 🙂
    He acted in that alright but it was at the request of L.V Prasad’s grandson whom he couldnt refuse for obvious reasons. Infact in many interviews he has mentioned that its not a step in the right direction and indirectly accepted that it didnt do complete justice to the original

    Kamal’s views as a director of Hey Ram and also as a person on Gandhiji is clear and well known. Sheer respect and veneration.
    The conflict is not in KAMAL’s views! 🙂

    P.S: Theriyama previous post-la indha comment pannitten 😦

    Its my opinion that what Kamal expresses through his characters and movies is truer to his thought processes than what he says at public gatherings..

  6. tamizhan,
    Who said i was talking about ONLY about public functions?
    I was referring to the movie also…
    That was the point of the movie

  7. Bala,

    I dont think the message was that simple.. Lets just agree to disagree.. Wouldnt do for fans to fight each other.. Thalaivar needs all the support he can get! 🙂

  8. Appadiye Aagattum! 🙂
