Ryan , a handsome and adventurous young man, loves his friends more than anything else (more than his parents too). He hates being a book worm like other of his college mates, so always ends up getting low grades in his college exams. He believes in doing things his way, and ends up having five pointers as his GPA.
Hari , a shy guy by nature wants to be handsome like Ryan. He is average at studies (pretty bad/funny at viva. He falls in love with Neha Kurien (his Professor’s daughter). He always messes up when he attempts to impress Mr Kurien (his professor).
Alok is a simple boy who wants to get good grades and earn money to overcome poverty of his family.
I believe Hirani doesn’t want to give away the look of his protagonists soon, which is why the teaser doesn’t have any of the actors in it. The shoot of the film has already begun at Shimla, Ladakh, Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai. The shoot is supposed to be over by December though release dates are not confirmed yet.
One thing that may go against the movie is that the book, “Five Point Someone” had its protagonists playing 18-22 year olds initially atleast. It remains to be seen if Aamir, Madhavan and gang can pull that off. I have a feeling that the movie will not be a complete adaptation of the book, instead the book will just be a base from which the screenplay will be built on
