3 Idiots – reminds you those old lovely days

“Listening to heart and chasing dreams and ideas what matters you most, without caring enough for rules, but the life and people who matter …. Isn’t it what you wanna how the world should have been? Three Idiots lead by Rancho just try to take over the same goal once again.”

Keeping my tradition of being late into trendy things, I was the one, who come to read Chtan Bhagat’s Best Seller “Five Point Someone” by year 2008, almost four year after its release and being the frank one, I would admit that it was the first english novel, I ever finished up to the end. It sure touched me like the way it touched others (after all, its been bestseller for straight five years) and obviously it should touch to all of us, who start running since they born without thinking that “is this race all they want?”

“After talking over child education system brilliantly, it was kind of only Amir’s right to take over this story made to make us re-think about our ‘top-notch’ professional education system and grading system. Keeping the brilliant script of Chetan aside, performances and fundas the movie consists of, were enough for making the movie as best entertainer for the last week and probably the first month of the new year Twenty Ten.”

This movie does not really adopt the whole storyline exactly as it was and as it was done in Hello (Adopted from another novel of Chetan named “One Night @ call center”, but Hirani and Vidhu have added their own elements in this movie. It was kind of necessary as well coz movie audience and novel audience are not the same. Chetan titled his novel as what not to do in IIT, while Hirani made it to say that how to, call it Hiranisation of Five Point Someone.


Three boys led by one extra-ordinary one “Rancho” challenge the system in their ways, learn a few things from education system, teach a few, show an insight to the people, who don’t know about our engineering and education system yet, fought with the rules, broken the rules, at the end; find in their ways that what they are meant for and here the story ends in filmic & dramatically happy ending.

Many feel surprised that how Amir still look younger and fresh like some twenty something, many respect Boman for brining its own kind of humor to Hindi Cinema, many claim that Chetan’s novels are inherently made for movies only, but this movie is a must watch for all of us.


The water tank, where the three idiots were used to go, reminds me tower of science faculty of Allahabad University and my days with it. Lots of memories, lots of flashes …. the way I studied, the way, I irritated my teachers 😉 The way, I challenged the rules in side the faculty, hostel, the way, my definitions were different than others, the way after many ups and downs the degree somehow ended, the way everyone of us made their places in this rat-racing world. Everything just seems so fresh, bringing a rare smile on my face.

“I really miss those days, those friends, where we had lots of problems, but life was true, we were innocent, we were standing for everyone even strangers, those pretty smiles ……. Thanks Amir, Thanks Hirani and Thanks Chetan for brining all the memories back together in twenty ten.”

Looking for the day, when someone will make movie on third remaining novel of Chetan “Three Mistake of my life” coz as per my view, its been most filmic novel wrote by Chetan and deserved to be big hit than other two, with due respect critically acclaimed “Five Point Someone”.

Taare Zameen Par; Could you get the means …..

You will miss your childhood, your children, yourself and something as you have never seen, neither going to see very soon. Watch it and recommend it to others as well, otherwise you will be regretting of what you missed. Not putting my recommendation in words and want to keep it in ways Ishan puts it. You will feel goose pimples at many moments during this movie. Ishan … Inu … was not lost as Nikumb was there.

Amir!!! you were right, this movie will come to change the perception of everyone to look over their childern.

Some people were even more sure than me that I’ll come up with my take over this and here I am, proving them very right. Sure it was like master piece that I started typing these words just after watching the first 20 mins of movie. I think its going to be kind of encyclopedia for kid’s world in Hindi Cinema. I really could guess that what it takes to create a concept into a movie and the perfectionist is no where lesser than the punch, he was with in RDB.

The very first question was that how could such a movie carry people’s interests without any lead actress or so called filmy formulas? Here the credits of the perfectionist Amir Khan came into play and he was really an enigma, who taken this project and matured it at a level that now touching the wont be ever easy. A simple concept, a boy who was careless about reading/writing and hearing his parents, gets boarding in punishment and magical teacher does the magic to get him back in rights ways. Was all this much simple? Do you think that you understand it? Think again.

I was moved with the work of Deepa Bhatia as she has taken care of almost all sensitive sides of a silent thinking mind. I started writing this review after first 20 mins and like his mother, I was in tears, when she turns the pages of his drawing book after putting him in boarding and see his picture moving away from his parents. Minute by minute, I was feeling the silent emotions and moreover was much impressed by the way of rendering the same. I was in pain and really moved, when Ishan takes rounds of sport field on arrival of his parents in boarding school.

Second half started with entry of Amir as temporary teacher in boarding school and I was conscious that if after the light entry of himself in dressing of joker, the same is going to loose momentum? But ….. but think you are trying to write your opinions over this movie….. I could bet you will get a full stop …. A complete full stop, when Amir says, he will be lost. I just felt the same, I just felt and my hands trembled that if I could do justice with my writing over this movie. I really was able to feel the emotions of Ram Shankar Nikumb (Amir Khan) that could he do justice with the boy and could stop him from getting lost?

Amir heads of to you and your crew that you never let it down as after starting it in sensitive ways, it grows like more and more touching. As Amir says “Patri se hat kar bahut kam log soch pate hain” and this movie just does it precisely. Don’t know, we should give the credits to whom, but this was a movie for a message not for just entertainment and now I know why Amir was so confident about this movie. You will feel the reason of his confidence, when will see Ishan’s father leaving the boarding school without metting Ishan with tears in his eyes.
