Watched 3 Idiots at Big Cinemas on Oak Tree Road. 3 Idiots is an amazing movie that kept us captivated from the beginning to the end.
Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Sharman Joshi have played the role of three friends who enjoy their college life with the usual funny experiences that each one of us can related to during our college days.
Aamir Khan plays the role of ‘Rancho’, who is a brilliant student, with a different vision of thinking of his own, which is not only unconventional, but also practically smarter than what his professors think.
Madhavan and Sharman Joshi play the role of Rancho’s friends, who try to locate him after a gap of many years. Madhavan narrates the full experience, with flash back of how Rancho impressed him from the first day he met him at the college ragging night.
Boman Irani plays the role of Viru Sahastrabuddhe, the director of Imperial College of Engineering (ICE). The students call him Virus for his style of functioning – the best of which is his seven and half minutes of power nap during which he wants to have his shaving every day, to save time.
Rancho uses ‘All Izz Well’ and tells his friends that since heart is afraid of everything, we have to keep telling the heart that all is well and everything will be fine. The director, Rajkumar Hirani, has very well presented this All Izz Well concept as it has become a unforgettable phrase for anyone who watches 3 Idiots. He conveys such a simple message that do not get into the rat race after success, but go after doing anything you do with passion, and success, money and everything else will follow. I think Aamir and Rajkumar Hirani have done that in 3 Idiots by example and that is the key reason for this movie being a success.
Kareena Kapoor plays the role of the second daughter of Virus, who gets to meet Aamir, Madhavan and Sharman, when the three guys gate crash into Kareena’s sister’s wedding. When caught by Virus, here again Rancho comes up with an excellent excuse and calls it ‘Virus Inverter’, where we can make use of idle car batteries, to generate the necessary electricity required for a function. The best part is, Rancho sets out to actually work on this Virus Inverter and uses it at a later stage during an emergency.
The one joke I was very impressed with was when Virus asks Sharman how an induction motor works and Sharman starts with ‘ddddrrrr dddddrrrrrrrrrrr dddddddrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr’ and it was at this time that every single person in the theater bursted out laughing. Though it is a old joke, the timing was impeccable.
The twist comes in the end which is very interesting. Will write more after a few months so that the thrill is retained for those reading this but have not watched the movie yet.
The songs are very good and I was quite impressed at the completeness of this movie – all loose ends are tied up well, there is a good message in the story and the songs are also good.
I would rate 3 Idiots one of the most entertaining movies I have ever watched in my life. Hats of to the 3i team for this.
