3 Idiots

Medium : Hindi
Starring : Amir Khan, Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Bomman Irani, Kareena Kapoor
Director : Rajkumar Hirani
Music : Shanthanu Moitra

The most distinguished bollywood actor in the last 10years, in terms of selecting variety themes for his projects and also creating success from it is none other than Amir Khan. Nobody will argue in this matter. It is relevant when we take the examples of projects like 'Sarfarosh', '1947 - Eart
h', 'Lagaan', 'Dil Chahtha Hai', 'Mangal Pandey', 'Rang De Basanthi', 'Fanaa', 'Tare Zameen Par'(director also) and 'Ghajini'. Now Amir Khan's new project has got a different title, '3 Idiots'.

'3 Idiots' has also got successful names to project on the technical side. The team who had given films like 'Munna Bhai MBBS' & 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai', Rajkumar Hirani (director) and Vidhu Vinod Chopra (producer) join once again for this film. Abhijit Joshi who was there in the last movie is the co-script writer along with the director. '3 Idiots', distributed by Big Pictures, is adapted from a novel named 'Five Po
int Someone' by Chetan Bhagat.

The film tells the story of three friends, Racho (Amir Khan), Farhan (Madhavan) and Raju (Sharman Joshi) who were room mates while studying in ICE Institution, Delhi. All of them were fed up by the vigorous training there and the extra pressure and stress given by the Principal (Bomman Irani). Racho doesn't like the spoon feeding type of coaching and the style of by-hearting prevailed there. He always supported the practical knowledge and was against giving extra pressure on the students. His theory is that a student should be given the right to select his future.

Raju, who belongs to a poor family
reached there to study and to get a job, so that he can fulfill his family's interests and Farhan joined the college as per his father's wish as he was not allowed to choose his ambitious way. As a companion, Racho has inspired others to choose their own way. In between he was also black marked by the principal for questioning his style and extra disciplinary methods. He meets the latter's daughter (Kareena Kapoor) in a wedding ceremony and she was soon impressed by his behavior. What happens to their college life, their friendship, their ambitions, their love, their career etc are shown in the later portions of '3 Idiots'.

The film gives a message by questioning the educational system exists in our country. The central character done by Amir Khan gives inspiration for those who are interested in practical knowledge and thus to achieve
greater heights. The friendship between those three are portrayed well. The romance episode given here also felt realistic. The so called brilliant student named 'Silencer', who doesn't even know how to speak the national language is a real example we can witness in our school/college days. The humor is neatly handled by the director here. The black and white shade given for the Raju's family scenes is the best example.

All the actors have done exceptionally well, especiall
y Amir Khan who did the central character is very athletic and lovable. His body language suits well for an engineering student. Cinematography by CK Muraleedharan, songs and bg score by Shanthanu Moitra etc also goes with the mood.

The Head of the Institution role handled by Bomman Irani had got the shades of his role from the movie 'Munna Bhai MBBS'. The scene where the pregnancy handled by the doctor through web cam felt cinematic, but it is also acceptable as we are living in the modern technical era and no body can guarantee that a movie should be 100% realistic. The coincidence thing happened in the climax area and hospital scenes are other examples.

'3 Idiots' is an entertainer made humorously in the backdrop of an educational institution and at the same time it gives a message for all ambitious people...

Rating : 9 / 10
