3 Idiots, 2009

3 Idiots, 2009
Director: Rajkumar Hirani
Cast: Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Mona Singh

Stage: Home theatre, nice afternoon scenery

3 Idiots in short: Farhan Qureshi and Raju Rastogi want to re-unite with their fellow collegian, Rancho, after faking a stroke abroad an Air India plane, and excusing himself from his wife - trouser less - respectively. Enroute, they encounter another student, Chatur Ramalingam, now a successful businessman, who reminds them of a bet they had undertaken 10 years ago. The trio, while recollecting hilarious antics, including their run-ins with the Dean of Delhi's Imperial College of Engineering, Viru Sahastrabudhe, race to locate Rancho, at his last known address - little knowing the secret that was kept from them all this time.

Preps: None in perticular. A good recommendation

Well, it seems that every time I run into a Bollywood scene, it evolves in somehow romantic perspective of the world. Is India really the place, where the only two options what to become in life, are doctor or a scientist (engineer)? Saving the last penny for the kid to go in school, placing all your bets on his good being and trying to feed yourself while the youngster comes home with a degree, ready to serve the nation and bring home the big bucks? Maybe so.. however, much in this piece, that I simply cannot buy without research. Is there really so many suicides in India, and all of them because of a bad grade, bad choice in faculty, your parents forcing you to live up their dreams? Might be also true, however, in this piece it's depicted somehow from a perspective of a romantic scenery, "all is well" saying, so juvenile, not convincing at all.

Nevertheless, a cute piece, suits perfectly to the Sunday atmosphere, trying to relax and watch something amusing up to some extent and not demanding from a viewer's perspective. This is a genuine description I am giving to this one. Because the story doesn't fit the reality, the main characters are at least ten years too old to be hanging around the faculty. The times of Beverly Hills 90210 are over, you cannot have the audience by implementing elder people in the roles of students. Nevertheless, a relaxing one, trying to make you visit India (because of the scenery and the music, and evidently openess of the people involved, the habits they have, the poverty that seeks for foreign capital.

Nothing really thrilling about this piece. But can make you smile and laugh hard in many moments. Therefore, a nice perspective for the afternoon, nothing more. How come all the Bollywood movies seem to have a happy ending? Need to see more, I guess. Not all of them should be like this, I am sure.

My personal rating: 5,0 (amusing Sunday entertainment, even a bit more, from my perspective. Could be shrinked to one hour and a half, though)
