Mira Nair recaptures the

Mira Nair recaptures the comedy of Munnabhai MBBS in English as Gangsta MD. Did someone believe Munnabhai MBBS had the script value to reach high places ? It happens.

‘Blog’ – Word of the year as per Merriam-Webster Inc. Blog was one of the most looked-up words on its Internet sites this year. We bloggers would love it. Why not. [via Spidey].

Wal-Mart has 460 terabytes of data stored on Teradata mainframes. Imagine the data mining possibilities. The Internet has less than half as much data as this. Phew !! [via S.Anand]

    Any guesses on Hollywood equivalent of our local Sunil Bhai? I thought Munnabhai itself was a LIFT from Patch Adams and now we have a recycle of already recycled-bin !!!

    I agree with Venkat.. Patch Adams->Munnabhai ->Gangsta MD sounds wierd…The funniest thing is that in the title of the movie Rajkumar Hirani writes *Original Story* RajKumar Hirani…. why doesnt he mention that he is inspired by
    Patch Adams !!!

    This reminds me of a funny thing happened in Kollywood. They remade Mannan in Telugu with Chiranjevi as the hero.. and they dubbed back the Telugu version in Tamil..prolly for the rain dances 😛 !!

    patch adams and munnabhai mbbs- no parallels between them.

    both great movies in their own right but no tey are not similar. patch adams a medical genius who knows what he is doing and practiced a different kind of medicine – he gets a medical degree at the end dammit.

    munnabhai is a charlatan and knows nothing of medicine.

    now please quit comparing patch adams and munnabhai.

    and yeah munna will do great as gangsta MD

    adipex The chief merit of language is clearness, and we know that nothing detracts so much from this as do unfamiliar terms.
