Top 5 Movies Of Jimmy Shergill

Munna Bhai M. B. B. S.

Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. is an Indian Hindi-language comedy-drama movie from 2003. Rajkumar Hirani wrote and directed it for the first time, and Vidhu Vinod Chopra made it. Before Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), this movie was the first in the series of Munna Bhai films. The movie came out in India on December 19, 2003, and Sunil Dutt played the father of his real-life son, Sanjay Dutt, who plays the title character, Munna Bhai. This was Sunil Dutt’s last role in a movie. Gracy Singh, Jimmy Sheirgill, Arshad Warsi, Rohini Hattangadi, and Boman Irani are also in the cast. It's a lot like the movie Patch Adams, which came out in 1998.

Munna Bhai, played by Sanjay Dutt, is a thug who tries to make his father, played by Sunil Dutt, happy by pretending to be a doctor. The story takes place in Mumbai. When a doctor named Asthana (Irani) finds out about Munna's lies and ruins the reputation of his father, Munna goes to medical school. When Munna finds out that Asthana is the dean of the college, he vows revenge and falls in love with a house doctor named Suman (Singh), not knowing that she is Asthana's daughter.

Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. was a big hit with critics and audiences. It was followed by a second movie, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, in 2006, making it the first in a series of Munna Bhai films. The movie went on to win the 2004 National Film Award for Best Popular Film and several Filmfare awards, including Best Film (Critics) and Best Screenplay. At the box office, it had a silver jubilee run of 25 weeks, making it one of only eight Hindi films to do so since the year 2000. In the 26th week after it came out, the movie was still being shown on 300 screens in India. 

The main character of the movie is Murli Prasad Sharma, also known as Munna Bhai (Sanjay Dutt). He is a street-smart, Bombay Hindi-speaking gangster who lives on the streets of Mumbai. His loyal sidekick, Sarkeshwar, also known as Circuit (Arshad Warsi), is always by his side. Every year, Munna and Circuit's gang turn his hideout into a real hospital so that Munna's parents, Hari (Sunil Dutt) and Parvati (Rohini Hattangadi), who come to visit, think that Munna has become a real doctor. In order to keep up the act, Munna and Circuit's goons take turns playing doctors, staff, and patients.

Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai

The 2002 Indian Hindi-language romantic comedy Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai was directed by Sanjay Gadhvi and made by Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra under the banner Yash Raj Films. Uday Chopra, Tulip Joshi (in her first role), Jimmy Sheirgill, and Bipasha Basu were all in the movie. The movie was partly based on the 1997 movie My Best Friend's Wedding.

In this movie, Sanjay Malhotra lives with his friend Riya in the city of Mumbai. He gets a call from his old friend Anjali Sharma, who tells him in a shocking way that she is getting married. Sanjay has loved Anjali for years, which is sad. Sanjay goes to Anjali because he is angry and jealous and wants to stop her from getting married.

Sanjay goes to Anjali's home and soon meets her groom, Rohit Khanna. Sanjay is always being scolded and teased for acting like a playboy, but no one takes him seriously. Then, Sanjay starts to plan. He plans a bachelor party for Rohit and all the male family members. Rohit gets very drunk in the end. He realizes that Sanjay wants to stop his wedding, so he promises to make sure that Sanjay fails. Sanjay and Riya try to make Anjali feel jealous so she'll realize she loves Sanjay. 

Riya tells Anjali at the Mehendi ceremony that she and Sanjay were never together. Anjali says that she has loved Sanjay her whole life, but he has never known it because he has only seen her as his best friend. When Rohit finds out about this, it breaks his heart. Rohit tells Anjali's mother that she and Anjali's daughter both wanted Sanjay to be Anjali's husband. Both Anjali and her mother wanted Sanjay to be Anjali's husband from the bottom of their hearts. Anjali goes to Mumbai in her wedding dress to meet Sanjay when she finds out that he won't be at her wedding. She asks why he went away. Sanjay tells her how much he loves her by saying that he can't imagine her getting married to anyone else. Last, they tell each other how much they love each other. Rohit is happy that even though he loses his challenge, they love each other.

Happy Bhaag Jayegi

Happy Bhag Jayegi is an Indian Hindi-language romantic comedy movie that came out in 2016. It was written and directed by Mudassar Aziz, and Aanand L. Rai and Krishika Lulla were responsible for its production. Diana Penty plays the title character, a free-spirited bride-to-be from Amritsar who runs away from her wedding and ends up in Lahore, Pakistan, by accident. A group of actors, including Penty, Abhay Deol, Jimmy Sheirgill, Ali Fazal, and Momal Sheikh, play different roles in the play.

In 2012, Aziz started writing for the movie, and he later asked Rai to make it. Happy Bhag Jayegi was originally called Dolly Lahore Mein and was meant to be a cross-border romantic comedy. Even though a lot of the movie takes place in Lahore, it was mostly shot in Chandigarh and Amritsar, and Saurabh Goswami was in charge of the camera. Both Javed Sheikh and Momal Sheikh, who is his daughter, were Pakistani actors in the movie. This is Momal Sheikh's first movie in Bollywood. Sohail Sen wrote the music for Happy Bhag Jayegi, which was put out on the Eros Music label. Eros International bought the rights to distribute the movie all over the world. The final cut of the movie is 126 minutes long.

Happy Bhag Jayegi came out in theatres in India on August 19, 2016. Film critics had mixed feelings about it at first, but they liked the performances and humor. Most of the criticism was about how the story was hard to follow, how the tone changed, and how poorly the main character was portrayed. Even though the reviews were mixed, the movie did about average at the box office, making $465 million on a $200 million budget. India's media outlets thought it would be a surprise hit. On August 24, 2018, a sequel called Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi came out.

Mudassar Aziz has been working on the script for Happy Bhag Jayegi since 2012. When Aanand L. Rai agreed to produce it under the label Colour Yellow Productions with Aziz as the director, pre-production work on the project began. It was Rai's first time as a producer, and it had been over four years since Aziz had directed anything. The movie was meant to be a cross-border romantic comedy. It was first called Dolly Lahore Mein, which is a reference to the city of Lahore, Pakistan, where it is set. Later, the title was changed to what it is now because the main character's name was changed to Harpreet Happy Kaur.
