3 Idiots (5 Stars :) )

25 Dec

Yes my Blog is breathing again. Amir Khan made me do it. Well not literally…..

Here i am at 1:12AM in the night just back from watching the paid premier of 3 Idiots a movie which i was reluctant to watch at first for the simple reason that movies made out of novels are always a big disappointment. And considering the fact that i didn’t like the book also did nothing to help.

But as it turns out I was completely taken by surprise. The movie was nothing like the book, yes parts very tiny ones at that were, but that was about the closest it could get. I bet Chetan Bhagat might be disappointed to see so less taken out of his book (don’t know why it kinda gives me a sadistic pleasure …. chuckle 😉 )

This movie is guaranteed to remind every person in India who has ever been in an engineering college, lived in a hostel, written a journal, or turned up with a hangover in class, what those days were like. It is sure to raise one hell of a wave of nostalgia, in the lakhs of engineers turned MBA’s working in a foreign bank (People who watch the movie will understand the purpose of this sentence)

Yes there are points in the movie where it seems like a bit of a stretch to the real world, but i have sort of made my peace with the Bollywood style of exaggeration, and don’t mind it at all. The best part about the movie is that although the motive of the movie is a serious one, but is explained or rather depicted by all the characters in such a mild, witty kind of a way, that it hardly feels like it.

It would be totally wrong for me to comment on screenplay, editing and all the other technicalities, and so i will sum it up in simple words (another sentence from the movie)… Aamir khan—awesome as usual, R Madhavan – does justice to his character looks cute too, Sharman Joshi- Funny and intelligent acting, Kareena Kapoor- i’m happy her character is almost like in Jab We Met, Boman Irani – marvellous. One thing is for sure, Indian Cinema is changing and so are the audiences….

So go watch it, with ur friends, with ur parents… i loved it, hope u do too 🙂
