3 idiots

If I have to describe "3 Idiots" in the briefest way, I would say "truly incredible"!

It's fun
3 Idiots is a smart comedy. Jokes are well-written and meticulously associated with one another. No one could stop laughing at it!

It's educative 
"3 Idiots" conveys its core message clearly throughout the entire story. It's generally said:

Please do:
  • Understand the true meaning of learning!
  • Follow your heart!
Please don't:
  • Chase your parents' dreams
  • Live others' lives!
"3 Idiots" really gives us an outstanding insight into the nature of friendship, dreams as well as love. It comforts us with the notion that one should follow his/her heart to fulfill his/her dreams even if it's not as much prestige and probably wealthy as getting into an engineering or a medical school because "excellence" will result in "success"!

It's artistic
The switch between color and black-and-white mode is, albeit short, a highlight of the story.
It's also unbelievable how "3 Idiots" can be successfully driven by three male leads with relatively low participation of only one main actress.

In short, it's a rare film that can combine entertainment, art and education into an integrated one as well as make viewers smile and "cry" at the same time. Albeit a nearly 3-hour long film, it's worth every second you spend. Don't wait, go and watch it now!

Now let's go through some memorable quotes of  "3 Idiots":
  • Pursue excellence, and success will follow, pants down.
  • Today my respect for that idiot shot up. Most of us went to college just for a degree. No degree meant no plum job, no pretty wife, no credit card, no social status. But none of this mattered to him, he was in college for the joy of learning, he never cared if he was first or last....
