A review of the successful Indian movie “3 Idiots”

This Hindi-language film was released in India in 2009 but I only caught up with it on Netflix on a quiet New Year’s Day over a decade later.

The three eponymous characters are far from idiots: they are students at Delhi’s prestigious Imperial College of Engineering but they do have an unconventional approach to life and studying. The film takes the format of a search, ten years after graduation, by two of the titular characters, Farhan (played by Madhavan) and Raju (Sharman Joshi), to find the third, irrepressible Rancho (Aamir Khan).

Director and co-writer Rajkumar Hirani has produced a wonderful adventure which is a drama, a comedy, and a romance with some inevitable singing, dancing and even farting. But be warned: it runs to just 10 minutes less than three hours.
