Kaun Hai tu?Tu Kaun Hai?
(Who are you? You are Who?)
Main Manoj Hu.
(I am Manoj)
Main Mohit Hu.
(I am Mohit)
Bahut Maray Karay Hu Main.
(I like to beat a lot)
Main Khurakh de du.
(Should I give you the Medicine)
Achha.
Hmm.

And just when Mohit and Manoj, who look like identical twins, are about tear each other part. Something swoops down on them from the sky. It's a bird, it's a plane. it's Mannu Dhaakad (Great) Man. This is the story of Raja, a not so mild-mannered rickshaw driver who likes to disguise himself as a Superhero, Mannu, a messiah for the poor and landless.



A hero more Dhaakad than Superman. While all powerful Superman finds it difficult to fly chest out against the wind, our desi hero does most of his flying standing up-right. When Mannu takes his Lois Lane on a late night space trip, they both take it standing. And yes, in this story Mannu's Loise Lane, a gal named Neha is in fact still in school and Raja is her Rickshawala. Really Dhaakad! Superman could do something like that only in his secret life.





How did an Mannu get this much power? Here the makers of this epic have really outdone themselves, even if unintentionally. Some higher being picks Raja from the entire human race and gives him the impressively colorful power suit. Origin of Green Lantern anyone.  

I can offer BS about the entire film but it's the opening of the film that I failed to grasp, it  makes no sense even in this non-sense of a movie and yet somehow found it to be the funniest thing I have heard in a long time.

Main Khurakh de du.

  2. This I picked from a CD shop in Gurgaon. The kind of shop that sells 6 in 1 DVDs of all kinds. It's actually quite common.
