3 Idiots – Review

3 Idiots Movie PosterLoosely based on Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller Five Point Someone, the film “3 Idiots” redefines idiot as ‘I Do It On My Own Terms’. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the movie is begins with Farhan(R. Madhavan) and Raju (Sharman Joshi) setting off on a journey in search of their lost friend Ranchoddas Shaymaldas Chajaad (Aamir Khan) who leaves college all of sudden. The story of three friends is told in flashback by Farhan, beginning with the three arriving at a premier engineering institute to start their course. The movie has its share of hilarious moments in the first half. But the end stretches a bit too long. Kareena Kapoor as Pia dazzles with her brief role, and even though a lot of her spunk seems significantly in the track of Jab We Met.  And as  with all characters Aamir  makes everything look so easy and spontaneous. The chemistry between the Aamir, Madhavan and Sharmaan reminds of Rang De Basanti. Overall a good movie  – a story of friendship, hope, aspirations and most importantly, the goodness of life.
The only question still running in my mind is…why does Aamir still has to play a fresh-faced student even after 21 years debuting as the student on his last day of college? C’mon Amir..it’s time to graduate!

Lyrics of Tum Mile

I don’t know how many people have noticed this, music of movies featuring Emran Hashmi are bound to be chartbusters. The same goes for the latest from the Bhatt camp – Tum Mile. One listening to the tracks and you will want to listen to the songs over and over again. The title track – Tum Mile is my favorite. The song has three versions by – Neeraj Sridhar, Javed Ali and Shafqat Amanat Ali.

The rendition by Neeraj resonates of the feeling of innocent and pure love that takes centre-stage as Neeraj gets into the shoes of a lovelorn youngster who is plain and simple glad to have found the love of his life. A rhythmic tune that has a much better ‘antra’ when compared with ‘mukhda’, ‘Tum Mile’ has an elaborate setting to it in it’s opening version.

However, to one’s pleasant surprise, even better versions follow after a while with Javed Ali and Shafqat Amanat Ali getting their own solo versions of the same song. Frankly, the two singers do well in stealing the show this time around. Javed Ali takes huge strides with his soft rendition in this melodious outing which stays away from excessive musical instruments. On the other hand Shafqat Amanat Ali, who hails from Pakistan, gets another fabulous song under his belt after ‘Mitwa’ [Kabhi Alvidaa Naa Kehna] with this soft rockversion of the title song. All in all, this is a song that grows on you and once the tune is set in mind, there is no stopping.

The lyrics are also very beautiful. Check them out.

Tu hi meri hai saari zameen
Chahe kahin se chaloon
Tujhpe hi aake rukoon
Tere siwa main jaaon kahan
Koi bhi raah chunoon
Tujhpe hi aake rukoon

Tum mile toh lamhe thum gaye
Tum mile toh saare ghum gaye
Tum mile toh muskurana aaa gaya

Tum mile toh jaadu chha gaya
Tum mile toh jeena aa gaya
Tum mile toh maine paaya hai khuda

Tujh mein kinara dikhe
Dil ko sahara dikhe
Aa meri dhadkan thaam le
Teri taraf hi mude
Yeh saans tujhse jude
Har pal yeh tera naam le

Tum mile toh ab kya hai kami
Tum mile toh toh duniya mil gayi
Tum mile toh mil gaya aasra

Tum mile toh jaadu chha gaya
Tum mile toh jeena aa gaya
Tum mile toh maine paaya hai khuda

Din mere tujhse chalein
Raatein bhi tujhse dhalein
Hai waqt tere haath mein
Tu hi shehar hai mera
Tujhe me hi ghar hai mera
Rehta hai tere saaath mein

Tum mile toh mil gaya humsafar
Tum mile toh khud ki hai khabar
Tum mile toh rishta sa ban gaya

Tum mile toh jaadu chha gaya
Tum mile toh jeena aa gaya
Tum mile toh maine paaya hai khuda

Lyrics of Neeraj Sridhar’s Version

Khaabon bina nigahein meri jee rahi thhi
koi nahin thha yeh akeli thhi meri zindagi
khamosh thha honton pe baatein nahin thhi
koi nahin thha yeh akeli thhi meri zindagi

Tum mile toh jahan
Tum mile toh har pal hain naya
Tum mile toh sabse hai faasla

Tum mile toh jaadu chha gaya
Tum mile toh jeena aa gaya
Tum mile toh maine paaya hai khuda

Palkein moonde chahat meri so rahi thhi
Khushboo hawaaon mein thhi maine nahin mehsoos ki
Jaane kahaan baharein khil rahi thhi
khooshboo hawaaon mein thhi maine nahin mehsoos ki

Tum mile toh mehki baarishein
Tum mile toh jaagi khaahishein
Tum mile toh rangon ka hai silsila

Tum mile toh jaadu chha gaya
Tum mile toh jeena aa gaya
Tum mile toh maine paaya hai khuda

Tune duaen suni
Dil ki sadaayein suni
Tujhse main maangoon aur kya
Tujh bin adhoora hoon main
Tujh sang poora hoon main
Karta hoon tera shukriya

kaise kahoon -3
Kaise kahoon lamhein mujhe chhoo rahein hai
Aisa laga in mein tera hi toh aehsaas hai
kaise kahoon dil mein nayi aahatein hain
Aisa laga in mein tera hi toh aehsaas hai

Tum mile toh mera dil gaya
Tum mile toh sab kuchh mil gaya
Tum mile toh logon se kya waasta

Tum mile toh jaadu chha gaya
Tum mile toh jeena aa gaya
Tum mile toh maine paaya hai khuda

When we all have the UID card this could be one such conversation….

You need a Shark in your Life!

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades.

So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever. The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh. The Japanese did not like the taste.

To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish.

The frozen fish brought a lower price. So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks. After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive. Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste.

The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish. So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan? If you were consulting the fish industry, what would you recommend?

How Japanese Fish Stay Fresh:

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks. But now they add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state. The fish are challenged.

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired & dull, so we need a Shark in our life to keep us awake and moving?

Basically in our lives Sharks are new challenges to keep us active and taste better….. The more intelligent, persistent and competent you are, the more you enjoy a challenge. If your challenges are the correct size, and if you are steadily conquering those challenges, you are Conqueror.. You think of your challenges and get energized. You are excited to try new solutions. You have fun. You are alive!
