Critic Reviews for Three Idiots
This quirky well-acted film proves, as the title track says, that generally 'all is well' with commercial Hindi cinema.
Despite its flaws, 3 Idiots conveys a powerful message about how valuable your friends can be when they push you toward reaching your own highest potential.
3 Idiots takes a while to lay out its game plan but pays off emotionally in its second half.
There's an unavoidable joie de vivre (symbolized by Rancho's meditative mantra "All is well") and a performance charm that make this one of the more naturally gregarious Bollywood imports.
A superstar for more than two decades, Aamir Khan has never been more popular than he is today, in his mid-40s.
Audience Reviews for Three Idiots
Despite Aamir Khan's charismatic performance, this initially amusing comedy gets sadly lost in a melodramatic second half full of ludicrous situations and unnecessary revelations, with a pathetic conclusion that believes that hugs and laughs are enough to solve everything.
Rajkumar Hirani's magical spell again worked wonders. I wasn't expecting that it would work for me either. While it was still under production, I can remember having read in one of the newspapers as to how this movie could succeed given that it is based on a bestseller (5 Point Someone). And I reckoned then (not that I've read the book till date; probably I'm just one of those hyppos). But the movie turned out to be a bestseller in itself. I know not how far did those who have read the book enjoyed the movie, if at all, but I was in for a ride. It's an incredible piece of entertainment with an underlying message, but doesn't get too preachy at any point. I'd have found the screenplay flawless had the birth sequence towards the end wasn't so stretched. Putting that aside, it's miraculously excellent. Needless to say, besides Rajkumar's brilliant execution, Aamir, Madhavan and Sharman's excellent performance also help making predictability an ignorable factor in this masterpiece.
None quite like it. It is captivating as well as being funny and a lot of lessons there to be found. Though definitely good, the ending is simply too good to be true. Nevertheless, it is a fine film with a lot of heart, a lot of soul and everything else.
