3 Idiots - Movie Reviews

The filmmakers know just when to throw in that emotional low, after a comical high. They know when the song is most appropriate. And when melodrama will do just fine. Very few contemporary Bollywood directors understand this now.

But if you pay this short 'n' sweet soundtrack some extra bit of attention, its curious tunes are bound to grow on you.

Let’s face it: this film is all about expectation.

Inspiration: Chetan Bhagat's Five Point Someone literally comes alive on screen, although the film does not kowtow the book verbatim.

Life is all about listening to your heart and chasing your dreams.

Bravo! Bollywood smartys had done it again. The invincible Rajkumar Hirani goes more 'hearty' and less 'arty' this time to give us a witty and touching look at life and makes a befitting comment at the mad rat race we are in where the quotient of success is measured with a materialistic tape without giving the call of your heart any grape.

But 3 Idiots is like the two Chopras -- the intellectual filmmaker and his box office focused personality. In the midst of all the promising, sometimes highly entertaining and well written segments in the film, there are so many 'I cannot believe this' moments.

3 Idiots is a distant third compared to Hirani's previous works. Yet it has this perfect combination of comedy with a social message that should work well with the masses.
