    In search of excellence

    3 Idiots rating: 9 out of 10

    By Pravir (26 Dec 2009)

    Taking a balanced stance on the eternal skills vs. expectations dilemma, without being too preachy or too simplistic is not an easy task. With three of the finest craftsmen Aamir Khan, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani joining hands, this does look too easy for them. It’s a hat–trick for Rajkumar Hirani…

    Raju Rastogi (Sharman Joshi) and Farhan Qureshi (Madhavan) join a prestigious college for the engineering degree; the college being run by a stern and methodical Viru Sahastrabuddhe a.k.a. ‘Virus” (Boman Irani). They are joined by their roommate Ranchhoddas ... » read more

    The movie evolves round the character of Rancho, one of the three idiots, the other two being Farhan and Raju. Farhan, a promising photographer was almost strangled to suffocation by his father, who intended his son to be an engineer [another synonym for success], and nothing else. Obviously, he was rescued from being an incompetent engineer by the ‘hero’ and finally ended up behind the lenses and pen. Raju, was also made a competent as well as a confident engineer by the same ‘heroic’ magic wand,--- Rancho. And the hero himself? Well, he emerged as someone more than expected, ... » read more

    Rajkumar Hirani gave us two hilarious films with a message in them and his third offering also blows your mind both laughing and with what it makes you think about when it’s done. Loosely based on Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling novel Five Point Someone, 3 Idiots gives you a little bigger dose of what the Munnabhai films gave us… a smile on our faces when we walk out of the theatre. It’s a complete feel good film that entertains tickles, ignites our grey cells and also gives a very strong message of thinking out of the box and following your dreams.

    Yes we do feel we are Idiots…..

    3 Idiots rating: 9 out of 10

    By Divya Solgama(25 Dec 2009)

    Films with messages on our culture or systems are either preachy or very bold or hard hitting or simply boring. There are very few films which portrays the desired messages in the form of entertainment. Director Raj Kumar Hirani is one of those elite directors who have attempted such form of cinema in past and looking at his passion for cinema might attempt many more times in future. After taking a dig on medical and Gandhism he returns back with education system as backdrop of his latest film “3 Idiots”. Such themes have been attempted but have bit of preachy ness in ... » read more

    3 idiots, much awaited, wanted more

    A good movie is one to which you can relate to, and you do so with this one instantly as the three idiots get together and get going with Amir's first smart 'give-it-back' to the bullying seniors in college.3 idiots is a film about friendhip, about making the right choices in life, and some heady Amiresque Gyaan.3 guys turn roomies in an engineering college... and become friends. sharman and madhavan discovers the non chalant genius in Amir. There comes a smart twist at the interval stroke, and the film chases the riddle till the very end. The choice of roles are excellent. ... » read more

    All izz well, except the end !!

    3 Idiots rating: 6 out of 10

    By Amitava Sengupta(25 Dec 2009)

    3 idiots or Munnabhai 3 ... I got confused after this 3 hours experience. Same old concept, some very repeatative. If you ask about the story, it is all about the college life of 3 idiots, not at all searching of one missing idiot. The college life was shown very well, almost at perfection. Enjoyed every moment of it. Execution was fantastic.

    One should watch this movie for individual performance. Aamir, Sharman, Madhavan all acted very well and Kareena was superb. After "Jab we met" this is another movie which can be watched only for Kareena. Boman Irani now ... » read more

    Before reading this review, just put your Right hand into your left heart and say “Aall Izz Well…Aall Izz Well”

    I guess by now everybody must have known that “3 Idiots” is a must watch film, not for once, but for now most of us who had already seen it, would wish it too see it once again.

    Now the question arises for those two people, the one who had not seen it and would like to know “Wow!! Is it really worth it?” and the other one who had already seen it; just remember that moment when the film has just got over and you are stepping out of the theater, ... » read more

    Success Will Obviously Follow This Excellence

    3 Idiots rating: 0 out of 10

    By Anonymous (26 Dec 2009)

    It's a tragedy, I Didn't caught this movie at first day first show but it's all about atleast watching this movie a single time. There was much expectations for this movie because -
    1.It's an Aamir Movie
    2.It's from The Makers of "Munnabhai"
    3.Like Pre-year Blockbuster "Ghajini", It's a Christmas release of Aamir - A Superhit Formula
    4.Promos were Excellent, which creates interest of watching the movie
    5.It's a Youth Linking Movie as suspected by The Promos(but it seems to be liked by all ages), So Youth will pbviously watch this movie
    6.New Stunning ... » read more

    Wonderful movie but a shade below Lage Raho ...

    3 Idiots rating: 9 out of 10

    By Archisman Munshi(04 Jan 2010)

    It was very reassuring to see Aamir Khan back to his self after the ghastly Ghazni. He has not only shed pounds (or maybe gained pounds) for this role but picked up the perfect mannerisms of a college student. Compare his style of speaking or walking or even looking against the same activities of Sharman Joshi or Madavan and you can tell the difference. With all due respect to Madhavan and Sharman, both of whom have played their characters brilliantly, I must say that Aamir is of a class of his own. The makeup artists, costume designers all have also helped a lot in creating ... » read more

    Great Movie

    3 Idiots rating: 0 out of 10

    By shefali soans(07 Feb 2010)

    Totally loved the movie... great sense of humor, close to reality.... A movie with a great msg.. The three men were really good in the movie. Songs were OK but the movie was great....... Aamir rocks. 3 Idiots are sure to bag all the awards this year...
    Students should take the positive msg of the movie and not go around doing stupid things..... but to reach out and discover what exactly it is they are interested in and then to move in that direction.... with the help and support of parents.. » read more
