3 idiots – part 2
Watched 3 idiots today. All is well. Nothing has changed. Bollywood is still making crappy movies and they are very popular and make boatload of money. The only saving grace of the evening was the wonderful air-conditioning of the movie theater. If it wasn’t so hot outside, I’d have left the movie. Another nice thing about the movie was good camera work and some beautiful locations in Himachal Pradesh. Other than that, it is just the same old tired jokes and same old cliches. Nothing of substance.
The movie should have ended when they stopped for the interval. The second half was completely superfluous and unnecessary. Three hours of running time was way too much. I liked Boman Irani (maybe because his character shared my last name) and the guy who played Chatur. I would have liked Boman more if he had played the part of a Marathi person properly. He played a Parsi with a Marathi last name. That was very sad. His daughters didn’t sound Marathi either. The movie would have been the same it their last name was “Sharma”. There was no need to drag my good last name through all this mud.
The three idiots were absolutely motherfu*king idiots. There isn’t much to say about them. Nobody would miss the story/script writer of the movie he fell off the face of the earth tomorrow. The only funny part in this movie was Chatur’s speech on “Teacher’s day”.
I don’t like Aamir Khan because he always plays these “I am so good and I know everything, so kiss the soles of my feet” roles. This was no different. Also, his hair plugs were quite prominent. I should make a note to myself not to watch movies with these old actors on big screen. All their flaws just stick in my eyes and then I can’t enjoy anything else. A 44 year old can’t play a 20 year old college student. Doesn’t matter if he drinks 5 liters of water every day or not.
There was no need for Kareena Kapoor to be in the movie other than the song in the rain. I’d have preferred if Kareena and Aamir had exchanged their costumes for the song.
All this glorification of bad behavior on college campuses and boozing by college students is just not right. There are enough problems on college campuses as it is, there is no need for Bollywood to promote more of this nonsense.
I feel sorry for wasting my cousin’s money to buy the movie tickets.
