    My review of 3 Idiots (2009) by rajverma67

    This is the story of college life. The story starts with Farah Kureshi narrating his story about his college days. He has missed his flight to meet his friend Ranchoo. He goes with Raju and Silencer to visit Rancho in Shimla. Raju has missed his pant and he has just waked from his sleep. Farah takes these two to find his missing friend. The story starts on the day when Farah and Raju are admitted in the engineering college in Delhi. Farah has an interest in photography whereas Raju’s family condition is very weak. The day they are admitted in the college, they face raging by their seniors. So, the film shows the entry of Ranchoo and he solves the raging problems with his technical skills. Rancho is a very sharp-minded person and is genius in his academics. Soon, Farah and Raju share a friendship bond with Ranchoo and they always love him more. But one day, in their lives enter Virus, their Principal who tries every possible thing to destroy Ranchoo’s main motive. Infact he writes letters to Farah’s and Raju’s families, but Ranchoo makes his friends realize that excellence is the best. In Ranchoo’s life enters Pia who is a doctor. Even though, Pia is engaged but still Ranchoo is in love with Pia. Pia is Virus’s daughter who after realizing a soft corner for Ranchoo decides to help him and his friends in whatever situations they are put in. Rancho is a genuine guy who tops his exams and also helps his friends in every situations. One day, when Virus sees Ranchoo stealing the exam papers, he decides to suspend his friends and Ranchoo. But it is because of Ranchoo that Pia’s elder sister delivers a boy. Virus is happy to know this and in the end he gives him a very precious gift, his pen. After the college ends, his friends have not received any information about Ranchoo and therefore, they decide to find him. Then after this they visit Shimla, they come to know that Ranchoo is not the one whom they have meet in their college, he is a different person. So, they try every possible thing to extract the real identity of Ranchoo and in the end they come to know that Ranchoo completed his degree course for the other guy. He lives in Laddak. He is working for the betterment of small children. His friends along with Pia go to meet him and finally, they come to know that he is India’s top scientist, Funsuk Vangdu for whom Silencer was searching. This is one of the superhit films in the India. The film created an effective disaster on kids, teenagers and also for the parents. The film gives a very practical approach. What’s the specialist of the film is the speech, which Silencer delivers. It is just an icing on the cake. No doubt, Amir is the ultimate hero of the film. But his friends including, Madhavan and Sharman too have shaped perfectly in the shoes of teenagers.
