Two friends are searching for their long lost companion. They revisit their college days and recall the memories of their friend who inspired them to think differently, even as the rest of the world called them "idiots".
I have enjoyed previous Indian films so decided to give this one a go. I watched it with my husband who had never seen a Bollywood movie and we both loved it. With a basic message of be true to yourself and live your own dreams, the whole flavour of the film was one of optimism, whilst dealing with suicide and the difficulty of facing up to who you really are and the consequences of your own actions on others. Am now looking for other similar films.
I stumbled across this film by accident and i'm glad I did. it a movie in which pretty much shows every emotion a person could go through. it will make you laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time, its a comedy, drama, love story, musical and an all round joyful movie. the film is quite difficult to put into words because there is so much that goes on, ultimately the film is about friendship between the '3 idiots' and everything they go through to make it through technical college. there are some very funny scenes as well as some very sad ones, in effect it imitates live to an extent. the acting is superb by all. the film really centres around the main character Rancho and his can do, never give up attitude that we could all learn from. I would not consider this as the stereotypical 'Bollywood' movie, yes there are a few song and dance routines but that is not the basis of the movie, it is about life and all the things it throws at us and to overcome them. it really is a joyful, feel...
I watched this film in film theory class and did not know what to expect. It is easy to say I was blown away. It may be cheesy at times but I have never found a better "feel good film" that perfectly combines heartbreaking drama with laugh out loud comedy that also make you think about your choices in life. I absolutely love this film and recommends it to everyone I meet. If I ever have a bad day I put this on and instantly feel better. I hope you enjoy it too!
