a sequel to My Friend Ganesha – the first part which was
received warmly by the audiences. Our favourite Lord
also knows as Vinayak is shown as a Westernised Ganesha
who also speaks in English, is shown attired in Bermuda
shorts, a cap, a guitar in his hand and even with
of the instances, there is a dance competition in his
school and Vashu decides to take part in it, encouraged
by his maid Gangu Tai who promises to teach him good
dancing. However the school bully Rocky and his friends
upset his practice and damages his music CD. The maid
pacifies him saying that if he prays to Lord Ganesha, he
will definitely get help from him.
Gangu Tai then narrates the story of how Lord Ganesha
helped his friend the rat - Mushak Raj when he was in
trouble and cheers him up. She reassures Vashu that if
he brings him home Lord Ganesha in the coming Ganapati
festival, then the Lord will help him win the dance

Joining him in the film are Master Ali, Harsh Chhaya,
Bhairavi Goswami, Suhasini Mulay, Sulbha Deshpande and
The story is about Vashu who is the only child of bright
parents - Dr. Amit (Harsh Chhaya) and mother who is an
airhostess Anita (Bhairavi Goswami). This boy has an
unpleasant family life since his parents are always
arguing and fighting among themselves.
He therefore has this funny habit of covering his ears
all the time, which is mistaken by his friends in school
who tease him and call him 'Gandhiji's monkey'. Among his
friends only Tanya cares to find out why he's doing this.
Besides his best friend Tanya, the boy has an ally is his
new maid Gangu Tai (Upasna Singh) who was there in the
first part too.
Vashu brings home Lord
Ganesha during the Ganapati festival and befriends him.
Not only does he win the dance competition but all his
other problems also miraculously disappear.
The boy also learns an important lesson – not to take
the Lord for granted, as Mushak Raj warns him - Ganesha
only helps those who help themselves!
This film also features the
Bhangra Pop Singer / actor Mika and Raja Hasan in
special appearances. Worth a watch, but it is not as
impressive as the first part - My friend Ganesha.
This time the director has gone too far in an obvious
mocking attempt at trying to exploit the popularity of
this elephant God. Let us hope the producers get good
returns on their investment. Jai Ganesh Deva!
