Re: ' 3 idiots ' rules ., .,

As someone who read the book 3 years ago and with bad memory issues, I can safely say that this book is a decent take off on 5 Point Someone. For folks who suffer from ADHD and cannot read this write-up, this movie rightly fits (and very well) into the VV Chopra â?? Hirani genre of film making, worth your greens. 8/10. Hereâ??s why: V V Chopra and Raju Hirani have chosen a plot which attracts a lot of young audience, and the maturity in the story entices the older generations too. Who does not love college-based stories! The story easily jogs the viewerâ??s memory and may make them relate to their own college days, or make a tween/teen look forward to college because it paints a nice picture about â??collegeâ??. The protagonists, Rancho (Aamir), Farhan (Madhavan) and Sharman (Raju) are students of a premier Engineering college in India. The story is a tad bit of present and majorly a flashback in order of their 4 years in college, how they forge their friendships, their frustrations, fun and their interests. The plot touches upon pertinent issues in the Indian education system which sometimes forces rote-learning, peer-competition, strict nature of professors (Eg. Boman Irani nicknamed â??Virusâ??), etc which are prevalent in engineering colleges of today in India. The plot is light hearted, in that the viewer will experience emotions even through comic scenes and dramatic gestures like a strict professor finally breaking down, or after tribulations, folks meet with success â?? two of basic human feelings, which on a practical level, most of us empathize or rejoice with respectively. The movie can flatly be placed in the comic genre, and â??gyaanâ?? is also presented in comical means â?? with a fellow student (challenged with Hindi communication) who mugs up a speech in Hindi, which Rancho and Farhan modify to teach Raju what consequences rote-learning has. Although the view may forget the lesson soon enough, the scene is very well delivered and leaves a lasting impression (especially with the choice of words). The movie plot also discusses parentsâ?? genuine aspirations for their children, and how while growing up, we feel torn apart between parentsâ?? wants and our own. But the story also carefully depicts how they only seek our happiness and are willing to sacrifice theirs, as always. The movie does not have a snazzy appeal, in that, the students are shown to be from modest backgrounds and are looking to have a good time in limited means. In short, the story is not designed to give a specific message, but shows student life at a Desi Engineering college and what their interests are. Acting. Aamir takes it all away. Ranchoâ??s characterization is very strong. There are no shortcomings built into Ranchoâ??s character, and this character displays a range of emotions and attributes from happiness, sadness, curiosity, love, intelligence, â??coolâ??, confidence, boldness. Have we all not seen this guy in college? Thatâ??s Rancho. Heâ??s friends with Farhan and Raju who try hard to make marks in their exams, chasing 91% and 95%, and end up in the bottom 2 slots. Rancho is not shown putting in effort (by comparative means), but manages be at top always and ends up as the Student of the Year at graduation. He tries to convince his friends and others that the order of precedence is to love what you are doing, which will help you excel in it, and success follows automatically. Itâ??s a convincing motto in purview of the script, as Rancho displays a heart-felt interest in engineering, and with his projects â?? helping fly a peerâ??s mini-helicopter, opening up things that can be dismantled, the VIRUS inverter, and building â??birthing technologyâ??, are all visibly functional and he takes upon each of them one after the other, circumstantially or with intrinsic interest. Farhan does not want to be an engineer, but a nature photographer instead. Familial pressure of settling down with a safe job lands him in this prestigious college, but he wonâ??t go beyond being second from bottom of the ranklist. With constant nagging and â??gyaanâ?? from Rancho, Farhan in his final semester skips his campus interviews to go face his parents with an offer to go do nature photography in Brazil, after graduation. Farhanâ??s character is mild, yet sensible and fun-loving. He looks upto Rancho and helps out his two friends when needed. Raju comes from a middle-class family where 10s of Rs. make a difference. The pressure to do well bogs him down always, and Sharman has displayed the emotions of â??being torn apartâ?? beautifully. Sharman is an actor who can perform comedy as well as drama with great élan. Raju Hirani has been able to tap his potential very well. The story has not been overstretched to deliver a masala movie, possibly why there are no love elements for Farhan and Raju. The best part about the 3 characters is playing a much younger person in the movie. Specially Aamir, who is a 40 year old actor playing late teens or early 20s. It is learnt Aamir had to shed 7 to 8 kgs to look like a student. The mannerisms, looks, lingo, the walk, tone of the voice, energy are all very impressive. Madhavan and Sharman too seemed to have put in lot of effort but their timid characters of Farhan and Raju possibly let them be. The Boman Irani - Hirani camp membership Raison d'être is underscored with this movie. A professor who is strict, and expects performance and percentages from students gets challenged by Rancho on multiple accounts. On the verge of rusticating Raju and Rancho for stealing the question paper, Rancho saves the day by becoming mid-wife to deliver Virusâ??s (Bomanâ??s) grand-son on a rainy power-out night, after quickly building tools. Virus is a ruthless professor whose pressure on a student leads him to commit suicide. Boman performs the role very well, and provides humour by sarcastic means. The facial expressions, low-tone, his anger, the 7.5 minute break scene, etc are especially laudable. Another noticeable character in the movie is Ranchoâ??s love interest, Pia (Kareena) who is VIRUSâ??s daughter and is a medico. The movie is not so much about romance, so Piaâ??s character is passive. She adds decent amount of glamour to the script. Her expressions and dialogue delivery is familiar and light-weight enough to provide â??cutenessâ?? to the romantic scenes between herself and Rancho. The chemistry between Kareena and Aamir is nothing like a first-time pair, possibly because of being established actors themselves. Another character in the movie that deserves a mention is Chatur/Silencer (Omi). Observe how different the older and younger Chatur

Re: ' 3 idiots ' rules ., .,

This movie is definitely something different .It gives a vague idea of what students expect from their tutors and how to learn things than to be too methodilogical(its just mehod+logic).... but may not be suitable in real walks of life.It is definitely an eye opener for those sticky book worms .In the movie ,professor mentions that Engineering is more defined than Commerce and Arts stream as they need not know stick to Definitions and formulas. Aamir explains that Arts is more application oriented than mugging up formulas .Is this more rivalry?
