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!
