HAPPY 3 IDIOTS

3 IDIOTS.jpg

I managed to catch another suggestworthy(is there such word) movie and am again shouting from the rooftop :)

 

‘3 Idiots’ is one of the most entertaining films of the decade.

 

In a late scene from the film, 2 of the 3 idiots zip down their pants and pat their bottoms facing the third idiot. Rather than feeling gross at that instant, you have a lump in throat. For the zillionth time in a Hindi film, a bride runs away from the pheras on her wedding day. But the scene still doesn’t come across as clichéd. For a group of all-male engineering students, to ‘deliver’ means to literally carry out a delivery operation on a woman in labour pain. And when the motionless newborn responds to a goodwill chant of ‘aal izz well’ in true-blue Manmohan Desai mode, you fail to find a fault in the filmi formula. That’s the golden touch of Rajkumar Hirani.

 

Loosely based on Chetan Bhagat's novel, Five Point Someone (though only a miniscule part has been adapted from the book; the rest is all original), But despite the mental conditioning, the impact of the film is so overwhelming that it leaves you spellbound for hours after it has ended.
Most films have their own set of 'highlight' scenes
But there are a few that have a far lasting impact the entire ragging sequence; the camaraderie between Rancho and Pia; Chatur's (the 'brainy' student) hilarious speech; the entire black-and-white depiction of Raju's family; most of the scenes between Rancho and Viru; the sequences that lead to Raju's recovery in the hospital and many more. After a point, you just stop counting
Among the performances, Madhavan delivers his most retrained act ever. He takes the film back and forth with his narrative and is splendid even with comedy.


Sharman Joshi is brilliant, especially in his breakdown scenes. Boman Irani is sincere as expected, with his lisp act getting all the right nuances.

Kareena Kapoor (my favourite)  gives her finest portrayal in recent times as Pia. Her "dhokla, fafda, thepla, khandwa, khakra" scene is simply too delicious. Here's a performance that proves why she's indeed the best we have.

The life and soul of 3 Idiots is of course Aamir Khan. His perfection lies in the fact that he makes everything look so easy and spontaneous.

And at all the right moments, he brings the film alive with his sheer brilliance. From his look to his walk to his manner of speech, Aamir breathes life into Rancho and that's what stays with us.

If you thought Aamir Khan couldn't get any better than he is, think again. Aamir is the heart and soul of 3 Idiots and he proves why he's simply a class apart.
I loved the lyrics:
Give me some sunshine
Give me some rain
Give me another chance
I wanna grow up once again

Na na na….Na na na….Na na na….Na na nana na….
Na na na….Na na na….Na na na….Na na nana na….

Apologies accepted as long as you were working on making this world a better place, which you always do anyway, so keep it up and keep it going.

Happy New Year again sadiyaji, that was an awesome post and an equally awesome review on 3 idiots, yup I watched it in first week itself, could't agree with you more on all the points, and Kareena's "dhokla, fafda, thepla, khandwa, khakra" scene is my fav too, being a gujju myself :>8

Right Sadiya,

Lovely movie. We had hearty laughs and lumps in throats too. Well said about the saluting scene!!

Four of us who belong to the same college watched it together and had a field day remembering our college times, lecturers, ragging etc etc.

Wonderful movie...after a long time!!!

Wonderfully made movie, Amir Khan never ceases to amaze me really, he is one actor I never get tired of watching, though I am not his fan but his movies are always entertaining, I love the song 'giv me sum sunshine" too and I also loved xoobie doobie and I also loved Kareena and my mum, my dad and yes god ;0
(this has turned into sum speech rather than a comment)

Happy New Year Again to all the people here, have a great year ahead.
