Movie Review “3 Idiots”

Genre: Comedy, social, drama

Director: Rajkumara Hirani

Language: Hindi

Star Cast: Aamir Khan, R. Madhvan, Sharman Joshi, Boman Irani, Omi Vaidya, Kareena Kapoor, Mona Singh, Javed Jafry and Others

“3 Idiots” had high expectation even before it release for many reasons. To list few, the movie was supposedly based on Chetan Bhagat’s popular book “Five Point Someone”. It was next release of Aamir Khan after ‘Ghajini’ which was we all know was block buster hit. Then it was next project of Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra after “Munnbhai Series….” Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor paired with each other first time. Movie has excellent ensemble cast.

Sometimes this big hype before movie release cause downfall of many movies. But “3 Idiots” fulfilled all the expectation beyond imagination. “3 Idiots” is ingenious acting performances, direction, and script. Once again Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra comes up with highly entertaining movie with social message.

Movie criticizes Indian education system and Indian students learning style. Today in India knowledge is secondary to numbers or marks. Movie tells us to learn the books acquire knowledge, experiment with it, and try new things rather than just mugging up or following path laid by others. Make your own way, live life on your own terms.

Although the movie has superstar like Aamir Khan, other actors like newcomer Omi Vaidya and Boman Irani stand out. All of us surely going to love these 3 idiots immensely and going to remember not only Rancho (played by Aamir Khan) but also Chatur (Played by Omi Vaidya) and Prof. Sahastrabuddhe (Played by Boman Irani) for long long time. I can see producers of this movie making sequel of “3 Idiots”.

If I have to rate this movie I will give it 9 out of 10.
