3 Idiots

Ironically, the ones who think they’re so smart are actually the idiots. :)

3 Idiots, a Bollywood movie that Andrew’s cousin recommended. We watched it 2 weeks ago, and we fell in love with it.

Aamir Khan is no stranger to me. I know I’ve seen him in some Bollywood movies, which I’ve watched when I was in secondary school with my neighbour, but I do not know which ones. As you know, Bollywood’s movies name are so difficult to remember. His acting is indeed very impressive.

The movie is about 3 strangers, came together in an engineering college. Farhan, studies engineering for the sake of following his father’s wishes. Raju, studying engineering in hope to become an engineer so that he could change the life of his family. Rancho (Chanchad), studies for the mere reason of gaining knowledge.

3 friends with 3 different background, despite of being called idiots, helping and supporting each other. There are so many laughters in the movie, and there are sadness too. For the whole 2 hours, we just couldn’t stop laughing.

I love this thing that Rancho has been saying so frequent in the movie, something like “you don’t chase success. When you have gained the knowledge, success will naturally come to you”. It is so true. How many of us are chasing success and how many exactly has succeeded? All he is saying is, learn and gain as much knowledge as you can, when the time comes, success will be yours.

I shall not write further, you should watch the movie. Everyone should. Not just for yourselves, perhaps with the realisation, you’ll be bringing up your children differently. Results in school is not everything. :)

They speak in both Indian and English in the movie. It’s best to watch with English subtitles if you do not understand Indian. :)
