Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. is a 2003 Indian musical comedy directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra with a story much closer to the 1998 film Patch Adams. It is the first film in the popular Munna Bhai series of Bollywood and stars Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi, Sunil Dutt, Gracy Singh and Boman Irani. The central protagonist, Munna Bhai, (Sanjay Dutt) goes to medical school in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. He is helped by his sidekick, Circuit (Arshad Warsi).
Murli Prasad Sharma, nicknamed "Munna Bhai" ("Brother Munna") is a bhai or a Tapori - a crime don in the Mumbai underworld. His parents wanted him to be a doctor; therefore whenever his father (Sunil Dutt) and mother (Rohini Hattangadi) visit him in Mumbai, he creates the faux Sri Hari Prasad Sharma Charitable Hospital (named after his father) and pretends to live in accordance with their wish.
One year, however, Munna's plan goes awry. His father meets an old acquaintance, Dr. Asthana (Boman Irani) and the two older men decide to marry Munna to Dr. Asthana's daughter, Dr. "Chinki" Suman (Gracy Singh). It is at this point that the truth about Munna is revealed. Munna's parents are heartbroken.
Munna Bhai, who despite his lifestyle is anxious to please his parents, decides that the only way to redeem himself is to truly become a doctor. Therefore he decides to go to school in order to obtain an M.B.B.S. degree; the graduate medical degree in India, which stands for "Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery"
