Murli Prasad Sharma, nicknamed "Munna Bhai", is a street-wise, Bombay Hindi-speaking gangster in the streets of Mumbai, who is always supported by his loyal sidekick, Sarkeshwar, nicknamed "Circuit". Once a year, Munna and Circuit's gang converts his hide-out into a fully-functioning hospital, to fool Munna's visiting parents Hari and Parvati, who believe that Munna has become a real physician. Munna and Circuit's goons take turns playing doctors, staff and patients, to keep up the charade.
