3 Idiots: A Great Entertainer but Idiotic in parts

I could very well begin this write up with the Mandatory warning—Spoilers ahead but I’m sure by now everyone n their dog have watched the movie so it wouldn’t spoil the party for anyone. The first reaction on coming out of this movie was that it led to a definitely upbeat mood….the movie has that certain feel good kind of effect on one n all, as was expected out of Raju Hirani & Aamir Khan.. This is the story of Ranchoddas Shyamlal Chachad aka Rancho aka Funsuk Wangdu (cute names all) & how he touches n changes the lives of those around him (a la Munnabhai MBBS…infact I think Rancho n his chutzpah was closer to Munnabhai MBBS rather than based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel character) …the guy has very unique approach to life (which was what I liked best in the movie)…the spirit of Rancho is very well captured in the song ‘Behti hawa sa tha woh’– ‘ Hum Ko To Raahein Thi Chalati / Woh Khud Apni Raah Banata /Girta, Sambhalta,Masti Mein Chalta Tha Woh/ Hum Ko Kal Ki Fikr Sataati/ Woh Bus Aaj Ka Jashn Manaata/ Har Lamhe Ko Khul Ke Jeeta Tha Woh…..Hum Sahme Se Rehte Koovein Mein/ Woh Nadiya Mein Gotae Lagata/ Ulti Dhara Cheer Ke Tairta Tha Woh/ Baadal Awara Tha Woh’…..another lively n upbeat number encapsulating Baba Ranchod Das’ philosophy is ‘All Izz Well’—‘ Jab life ho out of control/ Honthon ko kar ke gol/ Honthon ko kar ke gol
Seeti bajaa ke bol/ Aal izzz well’ ..but some of the things are not really well with the movie which put the movie in the category of great entertainer but not impeccable…I had the greatest problem with over the top n unrealistic scenes in the movie n how everything happened only at the End moment…~Farhaan (Madhavan) gets a call to meet Rancho when his flight has just taken off n he  makes the flight revert by feigning sickness…once on the ground he
conviniently says he’s okay n runs away …I mean helloooooooooooooo one can’t get away doing so, so lightly…~ Rancho’s frenz decide to unite Pia (kareena) & Rancho just when she’s about to take saat pheras in shaadi kaa mandap. ~ Farhaan n Raju reach asli Ranchod Das’ place when his father has just died n his arthi is lying  there….c’mmon gimme a break with soo many unreal n over-dramatic scenes despite of which the movie was great but ‘cos of  which can’t be called outstanding.

    blame the bollywood formulas for messing u pthe movie. the bollywood industry relies on a roller coaster ride of emotions. so they have to accentuate everything – and they end up making reality a victim, like the flight incident, and over the top satire of rastogi’s parents – that happened one too many times and it was sick. also, too many loose ends – esp the main crux of the movie is also about how aamir pulls off the rancho impersonaton of a person in shimla – that story is pretty important – but its an also run in the movie! pia is also ready to move away from her husband just like that! it’s all very idiotic! timepass movie at best. the more you think or watch it – the more holes you find in it.

    in an endevaour to make it a big hit and ensure success – they made reality a casualty
