3 Idiots

When he described the definition of ‘machine’, no one could understand what he says. Professors expect ‘theoretical explanations’ but he just says it in his own simple style. He is different from every other student. Most of the times, professors keep him outside. Whenever professors tell him to go outside, he goes to another class. He had an amazing allure for learning. This is all about 3 idiots.

Today we are going to jump from Hollywood to Bollywood because ‘3 Idiots’ is such a ‘must watch’ movie. Bollywood perfectionist Aamir Khan, R.Madhawan and Sharman Joshi portray the lead characters of 3 bonded friends or 3 idiots.

3 Idiots conveys a very sensitive message. As we experience today, many teens have to follow the path which are decided by their parents or mentors not only in education but in their careers too. 3 Idiots says ‘follow your passion’, ‘do whatever you want to do and become the master of what you choose to do’.

Alongside Aamir, R.Madhawan and Sharman Joshi portray two never changing friends who discover their true potentials in life owing to Aamir Khan or ‘Rancho’.

In real life, Aamir and Madhavan are passing their 40s, and Sharman is in his 30s but they have done an excellent job of posing as university students. Known for his dedication and preparation for every role that he signs, Aamir Khan had been avoiding eating his own birthday cake. When asked why, he said "I am surviving on milk and a few bananas as I have been asked to lose weight for the role in 3 Idiots."

As well as the movie and the star cast, veteran director Rajkumar Hirani is also being praised by critics for their outstanding work in making the movie brilliant.

What else should I say? 3 Idiots says something about believing in your dreams.
