3 Idiots










Director
- Rajkumar Hirani

Genre - Comedy/Drama/Musical

A sense of skepticism hounded us before our viewing of this, our experiences with modern Hindi movies have not been all that positive you see. We're glad to say now that if all Hindi pictures were like this, we're absolutely converted! Funny, original, tearful, dramatic...we even enjoyed the songs and dances! Aamir Khan plays an oddball genius of sorts who changes the lives of everybody around him in college. With two of his friends, they get up to all kinds of shenanigans that may look foolhardy at first but turn out to be quite ingenious and surprisingly thoughtful. The picture goes on in this vein throughout and it plays like a thinking man's 'American Pie'. The kids of THAT dumb film think of nothing but sex. Here, the thoughts are more about helping others, about friendship and taking care of your loved ones. Now, isn't that more worthwhile?

5 STARS!

Wanted to check this out since one of my fave singers said it's so funny but was a little skeptical xD

Your review confirms it then! xD
