Did You Know?
Known for preparing for every role that he signs, actor Aamir Khan was avoiding eating his own birthday cake. When asked why, he said "I am surviving on milk and few bananas as I have been asked to lose weight for the role."
In the wedding scene, where the 3 guys are shocked looking at Virus, Madhvan is shown to be frozen in time. But his expressions change in one frame and then roll back to the previous expression.
Pursue excellence, and success will follow, pants down.
Aal izz very, very, very, very, very Well
"Whatever the problem in life is… just say to yourself 'Aal Izz
Well'.. This wont solve your problems but it will give the courage to
face it.." "Chase Excellence and success will follow".. " Life is not
about getting marks, grades but chasing your dreams".. These are the
golden rules which 3 IDIOTS teaches you in a very light and
entertaining way.. The movie makes you laugh and in the process you
learn many golden rules which can alter your life in a big manner…
3 actors from the path-breaking blockbuster RANG DE BASANTI( Aamir,
Sharman, Madhvan) team up together with Rajkumar Hirani.. It couldn't
get bigger! Loosely based on blockbuster novel ' Five Point Someone '
by Chetan Bhagat the movie deals with the present education system in
India that whether getting more marks and better grades is better than
gaining knowledge and is mugging up everything more useful than
The movie has many hilarious scenes and everyone in the film form Aamir
to Boman Irani to Omi Vaidya were superb in their roles.. Aamir has
outdone himself.. Never in the film he has looked 44 year old… Film's
music sounds mediocre but when viewed on the screen then the music
sounds perfect.. Cinematography is awesome and so is the direction..
Raju Hirani's screenplay(you can easily ignore a few loose points) is a
masterpiece and the film will achieve cult status for engineering
students in a short period of time.. It has the soul which Five Point
Someone had.. It is easily Aamir Khan's finest film to date.. The
film's climax is fantabulous and is a shocker.. It takes everyone by
To conclude 3 IDIOTS has the potential to break all records and sweep
all awards.. Watch it… You will Love it…
My Rating: 9/10
