Should you “lage raho”?

I watched Lage Raho Munnabhai after reading all the “go see, must watch, excellent, better than the first” reviews everywhere. And its near miss of Oscar ticket on papers.

It was no where near the MBBS. The first 3 songs were identical, they were over directed. And the first half was so slow. Movie didn’t have good characterisation, but for the Munna – Circuit relation. Vidya was wasted, so are the scores of others. Many characters were invisible in some scenes. Some pivotal logic – like Lucky’s daughter realising dad’s mistake so late considering the media coverage of the fight – lacked it.

Yes, it is a decent/good movie, but not anywhere near the just-missed-the-oscar-must-watch category.
