Film Review of "3 Idiots".

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

3 Idiots - Movie Review 3 Idiots is without doubt an excellent movie. The movie was supposed to be very brilliant by all the viewers since it was going to come from Raju Hirani, the Munnabhai director and Aamir Khan, the actor, producer and director the Indians trust in. The movie is a good one but not that good of what the people thought before the movie was realeased. It is a nice timepass. One of the messages is for the youth to track their passion instead of joining the rat race is also exemplary. However, giving a second look to the movie several flaws can be seen very easily in the storyline as well as the treatment. Loosely inspired by the novel Five Point Someone, the movie has shown the lead characters as black or white instead of grey, the real life ones. ...read more.

Further the music is good and hummable. The song about the character of Rancho played with the titles is quite meaningful and melodious. Choreography is quite good. The performances are excellent right from Aamir Khan to the actors getting the lowest footage in the movie. The message for the students to give precedence to knowledge over marks and follow their passion is definitely admirable. The movie impresses and moves the viewer deeply at certain places. It does not give you a chance to identify its loopholes and weaknesses while viewing it for the first time. Very entertaining and gripping indeed. But the minus points are too many to categorise the movie as an outstanding (which has been unjustifiably done by several established reviewers). It is necessary (and relatively easy too) to differentiate between an outstanding movie and a good movie. 3 Idiots is good, not outstanding. It is flawed, not flawless. ...read more.

Conclusion

Even on the laughter dimension, the movie is not a perfect one. Showing the male students time and again in the toilet or pointing at their asses looks disgusting after the first time. The excessive use of the word - balatkar (rape) does not allow the movie to be watched comfortably with all the family members. Does the moviemaker want the children (because the movie has been given a U certificate by the Indian Censor Board) to know the meaning of balatkar (rape) before the proper age ? Raju Hirani had impressed the Indian audience with his close-to-heart Munnabhai movies. However in this movie, he has not succeeded in living upto his reputation and the pre-release hype of the movie. The movie is excellent in parts only. It?s irritating at many places. Overall it is good. It could have been a better one by all means. ...read more.
