The central protagonist, Munna Bhai (Sanjay Dutt), interacts with an image of Mahatma Gandhi and learns the principles of Gandhian philosophy in Lage Raho Munna Bhai.

Munna is in love with the voice of Jahnavi (Vidya Balan), a radio jockey. He devises a plan to meet her when she announces a contest on the life and beliefs of Mahatma Gandhi set for 2 October—Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday celebrating the birth of Gandhi. Circuit helps Munna win the contest by kidnapping and then bribing a group of professors. As the winner, Munna is granted an interview with Jahnavi where he lies to her, presenting himself as a professor of history and a Gandhi specialist. Jahnavi subsequently asks Munna to present a lecture on Gandhi to a community of senior citizens who live in her home, called the "Second Innings House". In order to prepare for this event, Munna engages in a period of intense study of the life and works of Gandhi.

It is during this period that the image of Mahatma Gandhi (portrayed by Dilip Prabhavalkar), referred to by his nickname, "Bapu", or "father", appears and offers help and advice to Munna. He also encourages Munna to tell the truth about himself to Jahnavi. Gandhi continues to appear each time Munna sings Raghupathi Raghava Rajaram (a song often sung in Gandhi's memory). With Gandhi's help, Munna succeeds in impressing Jahnavi and cultivates a new life based upon Gandhism (particularly non-violence and truth) which transforms everyone with whom he comes into contact. Indeed, Munna starts to co-host a radio-show with Jahnavi and Gandhi's image, guiding his audience to use Gandhigiri (a neologism for Gandhism) to solve everyday problems.

“The film captures Bapu’s message about the power of truth and humanism.”
-Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh

“Lage Raho works but more as a moral fable that both endears and uplifts.”
-Times of India

“Mahatma Gandhi is back - and well what a comeback. Carry on Munnabhai”

“LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI not only entertains, it also enlightens.”
