Kamalhassan - Crazy Mohan duo combo creates a laugh riot in Vasool Raja MBBS. With the Chennai slum lingo and excellent performance of Kamalhassan the film provides entertainment in large dose.
Kamalhassan is Rajaraman a toughie who ekes his living as a debt collector along with friend Prabhu and Karunas for company. Once a year these guys act as good boys when Kamal's parents (Nagesh and Rohini Hattangadi) come to visit them. On one such visit Nagesh meets old friend Prakashraj Dean of a medical college. In the college Prakashraj is trying out laugh therapy to cure patients with high BP. When Nagesh proposes a marriage of his son with Sneha the daughter of Prakashraj the truth comes out. To console his father, Kamal and his cronies manipulate the entrance exam and get admission to the same college of Prakashraj. From here starts the fun when Kamal in the new role of a student sees a different view of life. Apart from the fun the film has it's touching moments too.
The Tamil version of Munnabhai scores in the emotional scenes which an actor like Kamalhassan elevates it to great heights. Sharan deserves a pat for making the film better than the original. Crazy's dialogues is yet another strong point of the film. The bad patch in the movie is Prabhu who did not have a lengthy role like Arashad Warsi in the original. Yet another disappointment is Sneha who opposite Kamalhassan is ill matched. Prakashraj too is disappointing. Performance wise too she is weak.
Bhardwaj's two numbers are peppy.
Cinematography especially in the songs shot abroad is visually appealing.
