THE PLOT –
I don’t quite remember the last time I saw a movie that delivered more on every count than it promised.
3 Idiots is not quite the Sholay of our times nor the Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge of the decade – but in its own way, it is much beyond the league of such movies.
It is absolutely no wonder then that this movie is all set to trash all previous records of the Indian Film Industry – and if I may, perhaps go out and make a mark on the global commercial film platform.
The plot is simple – three college friends and the way their lives are intertwined.
Five Point Someone? Well, that’s best left for you to decide. I really don’t bother who wrote what and what came out of it, all that matters now having watched the movie is that AAL IZZ WELL!!
THE CAST –
Madhavan is superb in his subtle and suggestive act. Parikshit Sahni makes a return to the screen as Madhavan’s father with a tight performance.
Sharman Joshi is his usual impeccable self, it seems he has taken off from where he left in Rang De Basanti.
While Kareena Kapoor and Boman Irani are adorable in their roles, the laugh riot king is without doubt Omi Vaidya who just kills the competition with his class act of Chatur Ramalingam.
And as is customary, a worthy mention goes out to the Ace of Indian Film Industry – Aamir Khan. He does what he does best – deliver distinctively!
THE MUSIC –
Shantanu Moitra again comes up trumps with the score.
While he has been regularly serving collector’s edition scores for Vidhu Vinod Chopra since the Parineeta days, he takes the score to a different level altogether with superbly crafted numbers.
Give Me Some Sunshine and Jaane Nahin Denge are amazingly likeable while Pagal Stupid Mann is adorable. The ace of the album definitely is Behti Hawaa Sa – superbly sung by Shaan and shot slickly in the movie.
THE VERDICT –
There are just no two ways about this – 3 Idiots is the toast of the season, from now on!
THE SCORE –
9.50 / 10.00
