3 Idiots

Another bollywood movie, which is really SUPER good.. i love this movie for sure,it’s awesome and highly recommended! haha.. With the tagline, “all is well”, and u feel like u can do anything..haha..

Well the story begins with Farhan’s scene. He’s on the plane heading up somewhere, when suddenly he gets a call from Catur, and he pretends to be unconcious to get off of the plane and he made it! Farhan and Cathur pick up another friend, named Raju. Three of them are looking for their old friend, Rancho. Cathur are trying to prove that after 10 years leaving the university, he will be the most successful person among them.

N the story turns flashback. It begins when they got into the Imperial College of Engineering. Farhan, Raju, and Rancho are bestfriends, while Catur is like a villain because he always wants to be no 1, be the best of the others. While Farhan and Raju are average students from modest backgrounds, Rancho is from a rich family. Farhan wants to become a wildlife photographer, but has joined engineering college to fulfil his father's wish. Raju on the other hand wants to uplift his family fortunes. Rancho is a wealthy genius who studies for the sheer joy of it. However, Rancho's passion is for knowledge and taking apart and building machines rather than the conventional obsession of the other students with exam ranks. With his different approach Rancho incurs the wrath of dean of college, Professor Viru . Rancho irritates his lecturers by giving creative and unorthodox answers, and confronts ViruS after fellow student Joy Lobo hangs himself in his dormitory room.

Threatened by Rancho's talent and free spirit, ViruS labels him an "idiot" and attempts on a number of occasions to destroy his friendship with Farhan and Raju, warning them and their parents to steer clear of Rancho. One time, Rancho humiliates Chatur, who is awarded the honour of making a speech at an award ceremony, by substituting obscenities into the text, which has been written by the librarian. As expected, Chatur mindlessly memorises the speech, without noticing that anything is a miss, partly aided by his lack of knowledge on Hindi. His speech becomes the laughing stock of the audience, infuriating the authorities in the process.

Meanwhile, Rancho also falls in love with ViruS' medical student daughter,Pia. Meanwhile, the three students continue to anger ViruS, although Rancho continues to come first in every exam, while Chatur is always second, and Farhan and Raju are inevitably in the last two positions. The tensions come to a head when the three friends, who are already drunk, break into ViruS's house at night to allow Rancho to propose to Pia, and then urinate on a door inside the compound before running away when ViruS senses intruders. The next day, ViruS threatens to expel Raju lest he talks on the other two. Unable to choose between betraying his friend or letting down his family, Raju jumps out of the 3rd floor window and lands on a courtyard, but after extensive care from Pia and his roommates, awakes from a coma. –> this scene makes me cry a lot.

The experience has changed Farhan and Raju, and they adopt Rancho's outlook. Farhan decides to pursue his love of photography, while Raju takes an unexpected approach for an interview for a corporate job. He attends in plaster and a wheelchair and gives a series of non-conformal and frank answers. However, ViruS is unsympathetic and vows to make the final exam as hard as possible so that Raju is unable to graduate. Pia hears him and angrily confronts him, and when ViruS gives the same ruthless reply he gives to his students, she denounces him in the same way that Rancho did over the suicide of Lobo. Pia reveals that Viru's son and her brother was not killed in an accident but committed suicide in front of a train and left a letter because ViruS had forced him to pursue a career in engineering over his love for literature. She tells Rancho of the exam, and he and Farhan break into ViruS's office and steals the exam and give it to Raju, who with his new-found attitude, is unconcerned with the prospect of failing, and refuses to cheat and throws the paper away. However, ViruS catches the trio and expels them on the spot.

However, Viru's pregnant elder daughter Mona goes into labour at the same time. A heavy storm cuts all power and traffic, and Pia is still in self-imposed exile, so she instructs Rancho to deliver the baby in the college common room via VOIP, after Rancho restores power using car batteries and a power inverter that Rancho had dreamed up and ViruS had mocked. Rancho then delivers the baby with the help of a cobbled-together Vacuum extractor. The baby borns succesfully. Rancho resuscitates it. ViruS reconciles with Rancho and his friends and allows them to take their final exams and they graduate. And after the graduation, Rancho disappears.

Story backs into present time. 3 of them are looking for Rancho and finally find him. But it’s the different look of Rancho. Instead he also has the same graduation certificate and the graduation picture. Farhan and Raju try anything they can to reveal about this, n Rancho finally tells the truth. He’s the real Rancho. Rancho that they know actually is his servant, who loved learning, that’s why his dad sent him to school to replace the real Rancho, until he graduated from college. Then he must went somewhere and started a new life. Then real Rancho tells them where their friend now. He’s a teacher now in Ladakh.

Raju and Farhan then find Pia, and take her from her wedding day. When they arrive in Ladakh, they see a group of enthusiastic Ladakhi children who are motivated by love of knowledge. Pia and the fake Rancho rekindle their love, while Chatur mocks and abuses Rancho the schoolteacher before walking away. When his friends ask what his real name is, he reveals that it Phunsukh Wangdu and phones Chatur, who has turned his back, to turn around and meet his prospective business partner. Chatur is horrified and falls to his knees, accepts his defeat and continues to plead his case with Phunsukh to establish the business relationship he was after. –> this one is freaking hilarious.

Well, i laugh and cry a lot. This movie was playing my emotion. Really2 good, even so much better than Slumdog Millionaire and My Name is Khan. Well, u guys just must see it, for sure :)
