Behind the Movie 3 Idiots: The spectacular screenplay writer and a wonderful director Indian cinema has ever seen is Raju Hirani. After delivering back to back hits like Munnabhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munnabhai, now he comes back with the best combination of Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Sharman Joshi and zero babe Kareena Kapoor.
In the Movie 3 Idiots: Rancho (Aamir Khan), Farhan Qureshi (Madhavan) and Raju Rastogi (Sharman Joshi) are 3 idiots of the best Imperial Engineering College. The movie starts from the point where, Farhan Qureshi and Raju Rastogi start their journey through scenic locations of Ladakh, Shimla and Manali in search of his missing friend Rancho, who disappears after completion of their graduation.
Whole movie is narrated in a see-saw stylish look, where flash back and present mode interchange their positions on the screen more than half a dozen times. Coming to the flash back, Rancho is the best student in the college who believes that learning in college is not just enough to excel in life; it requires something more to reach the shore of excellence (not success). Farhan Qureshi dreams to become a wild life photographer, but is here in Engineering College only to satisfy his family. Raju Rastogi’s story is entirely different who hail from a poor family and struggles to survive.
Obviously there will be a College Principal Viru Sahasrabudhdhe (Boman Irani) who is called as Virus in the college, as he believes in age old pedagogic principles. Now, the intelligent Rancho comes into confrontation with Virus by his wits and the rebellion against age old education system. How can be a Hindi movie without romance and Pia (Kareen Kapoor), daughter of virus falls in love with Rancho for his trendy thinking.
Now, the movie is a journey of these three idiots in their lives. How Rancho helped Farhan to fulfill his dream by talking to his patients? How did Rancho bring out Raju Rastogi from the jaws of a suicide? How did Rancho become the best bet of the college and what did he become later? What was he doing in these Ladakhi hills? forms the rest of the story.
Values of the Movie 3 Idiots: These 3 idiots steal your heart by making you laugh, think, realize and try to implement, during the entire span of movie starting from ragging scene till the end. One must strongly question Aamir Khan, when he will be out of this 20’s age. After the six packed look for Ghazini, the way Aamir Khan has shaped himself for “3 idiots” college going guy makes you feel awestruck. Kudos, to this talented hero! Next to him is Shrman Joshi, who is a pick among the lot with his extra ordinary timing either in comic episodes or in melodrama. Madhavan, has not got the meaty role to perform but is best as usual. Kareena Kapoor is totally cornered in the movie and she doesn’t have any great thing to perform. Boman Irani, the wonderful virus very soon make your system a Virus affected with his differently styled costumes and his make up. One more character, whom I have missed to introduce you is Omi Vaidya, batch mate of this 3 idiots who just believes in mugging the books is a character created by Director to target those students whom one can normally be observed.
Out of the Movie 3 Idiots: Despite the great narration and wonderful message, 3 Idiots more often looks like a movie that has run on the lines of Munnabhai MBBS. If it is Munna (Sanjay Dutt) there, it is Rancho here; if its is Gracy Singh there, it is Kareena Kapoor here; if it is Dr. Asthana that is Boman Irani there, it is the same Virus here; if it is the Medical college, it is an engineering college here; if Munna targets the health system and the way a patient should be approached by a doctor there; it is Rancho who targets the entire Indian educational system raising his voice strongly against the principles underlying the system. The way, a Ladakhi school has been shown say what does Director clearly want to focus on.
One thing that is to believed, many movies will have highlight scenes here or there, but 3 idiots itself is the pack of highlights from scene 1 to scene n.
Cinejosh Verdict of the Movie 3 idiots: Excellent entertainer with heart touching message. Three cheers to Hirani.
