3 Idiots Movie Review

After wiki-ing it, I just found that it was a 2009 film... It broke the box office in India and is now the highest grossing film in India of all time.

Farhan, Raju, and Rancho are 3 friends who got into an engineering college. Farhan however wanted to be a wildlife photographer, and is forced by his father to be an engineer. Raju aspires to be an engineer, but pressure from his family made him unable to really focus on his studies. Rancho however, was a genius from a wealthy family, and always tops the class, while his friends settled at the bottom. Despite the wide gap, the 3 of them are very close friends, despite quarrels happened.

Rancho's passion is for knowledge and taking apart and building machines rather than the conventional obsession of the other students with exam ranks. With his different approach Rancho incurs the wrath of dean of college, Professor Viru Sahastrabudhhe (ViruS). Rancho irritates his lecturers by giving creative and unorthodox answers.

They humiliated their classmate Chatur while trying to prank on Prof Virus during a convocation speech, leading Chatur to challenge Rancho to see who will be successful in 10 years time. Note that the film is a flashback of their university life.

In the present time, it was revealed that Rancho disappeared and lost contact with his friends after graduating. The story mainly revolves on finding him back after sources that he may have been alive was found. Farhan, Raju and Chatur went from place to place to search for Rancho, as the flasbacks of their University life making the story clearer and clearer.

As this film is horrendously long ( 2 hours plus), I'm finding it very difficult to write a full-fledged account of the plot. But in the end, all ended well... XD

A must watch... Easily the best film that you watched for this current year, and probably one of the best in your life time.

It is in Hindi and English. Do not be afraid for not being to catch the phrases or dialogues. With subtitles, I tell you, you're gonna enjoy this film...

Absolutely mind blowing, funny and 5 star rated movie from me!!!

And the soundtracks ROCK too! although it's in Hindi, but still, oh man, fantastic and wonderful!

The 3 Idiots... ;)
